Japanese Air Force Air-To-Air Bomber Interception Tactics - 1944 & 1945 USAAF Reports

Post by Richard Stone » 23 Aug 2023 00:24

The three short attached articles discuss some of the air-to-air bombing methods the Japanese Army and Navy Air Forces tested and used to intercept US bombers during the 1944 and 1945 Pacific campaign.

These articles were printed in the USA professional military reference magazine ‘Military Review’. I’ve posted these articles in the order of their publication and they show the evolution of the interception methods used. The dates of each article publication are August 1944, March 1945 and May 1945.
