Japan News 1948

October 7, 1948 Takayanagi Masao looked around the bridge of his current ship. For the 44 year old captain from Osaka, Yamato was quite different from his previous command, the battleship Nagato. It had been about a week since he had taken over command of the Yamato from Aruga Kōsaku who had been promoted to Rear Admiral last month. Aruga was familiar with Takayanagi's work aboard the Nagato and was confident that the new skipper would have no problems with the new ship under his command. "Bewar...

Operation Pegase

Quoted we like over reactions! Over reactions can cause incidents... ... maybe a certain huge and evil nation far to your east might send a submarine to the Atlantic on a mission and sink one of the vessels involved while hiding underneath the ship of another nation (kind of like Star Trek VI) to cause an incident.

Quoted others, having taken their own professional-grade photographs, quietly made their way to a rendezvous to forward intelligence to their masters. Sounds like Blofeld will have something interesting to pass on during one of his next meetings with Burcough.

Bering Strait Incident - Out of Character Discussions

IC: Quoted It is Japan's opinion that the German Arbitrator ignored several key known facts when passing his judgement and disagrees with his opinion that the Zhuhai's move was "a deliberate assertion of its rights to freedom of navigation". The Zhuhai's move north was a clear move to annoy the Russians, threaten their sovereignty and espionage. Now the mission of the Zhuhai was to explore the Artic Sea and investigate whether a northern route to Europe is even possible. Now under normal circums...

Bering Strait Incident - Out of Character Discussions

Earthquake deaths are to be expected with big earthquakes and can happen in many regions of the world. Looking at wiki, a bigger one may probably occur later in the year (though that depends on the player controlling the nation in question). Motorsports is a dangerous sport and deaths are to be expected (and it will only get worse). As indicated in the past, we are in the 1946-1949 period where 1 driver was killed every 70 days. Looking at wiki, 9 people were killed in motorsports OTL in 1948. J...

April 5, 1948 As part of their shakedown cruise, submarines I-402 and I-403 launched a total of a dozen MXY7B guided rockets at targets on the Okino Kita Iwa Firing Range with decent results. As expected, targets beyond visual range pose a problem making the MXY7B pretty much a fire-and-forget weapon for such targets.
