results
on
these
pre
cisiontargets:
Of
theten
primary

targets,
seven
were
bombed
visually,
while

Of
thefourteen
primary

targets,
5
were
attacked
visually,
6
by

and
3

combinationof
the
two.
Of
the
total

assigned,
15

6 ~
were
attacked
visually

This
per
centagegives
an
indication
ofthe
variable
nature
of
weather
conditions
over
the
Japanese
Empire
and
the
consequent
difficulty
in
weather
prediction.
The
XXI

C o ~ d
attacked
precision
targets
on
four
days
during
the
month
of
June.
These
