nent '","fngs to pc.rticipnte 1n o.n incendinTy attack on the southern Tokyo

b. TArget SpeCified;
(1) The southern Tokyo UrbtUl Aree. 'r.l5 to be the primary

(2) No secondary or lo.st resort targets were spectried,
2. STR;'.TEGY .,NO PL.;N OF
0.. Strategy;
(1) Decision was lIlo.de to run 2 ao.xil:lUl:l-effort incendiary
on the City of Tokyo within Do minimum time in an
effort to reduce the vCllue of the y/o.r industry remaining in Tokyo.
(2) In the planning of these the greatest
diffiCUlty encountered WaS in the selection of the of attack due
to tho heClvy antiuircro.ft defenses of Tokyo. The lUis of Gtt3.ck fina.lly
decidod upon wo.e considered to be the best in order to strike accurately
nnd to obtnin the least bo.ttle
(3) Altitude of uttock to be used required consideration
of flOk, accuracy, drift, smoke, and theruls.
(4) Due to forecust poor weo.ther in the to. get area,
it waS necessary to plan both of these strikes for individual air_
nt night, using the general ",ethod of attack f1l1lployed Oft s1.lllila.r

3. Fresuencies: Atmospheric interference was The 3 and
6 c.egacycle strike frequencies of all received 110_ anell)' ja.mm!ft&.
The 11 megucycle frequencies proved the most effective for this missloD.
Following is a percentage breakdown of traffic per frequency: 8 per
cent on 3 megacyclesj 32 per cent on 7 megacyclesj and 60 per cent on
11 megacycles.
4. Aids: Two requests for VHF/DF were ob-
talood through the facilities of Condor Base. Saipnn. Aircraft made 17
requests for HF/DF bearings, all 17 were obtained. The 313th !fing re_
ported using air-to-air homing effectively. Range ..· homers. dd broad-
cast stations were also used successfully.
S. Net Discipline and Security: Net discipline Was reported as
fair. Some operators were continuing the practice of not waiting until
other aircraft finished tra.nsmitting before se:lding their mess.gall.
Steps havo been ta.ken to prevent recurrence. There were seTeral incid.ntl!
in \lhich aircraft broke radio sll(lnce to sey they were aborUn,!;. One air-
asked for a normal Check bearing. contrary to instruotions.

north of Wobnra airfield.
5. Deployment of Jao Fighters,
0.. Jap fighter interception wo.s l::olo.ted, probably due to tbo
confusion in the oarly-warning system by the =15s10n on4/
or due to 0. breakdown in the enelllY1 s early-warning o.nd fighter-eontrol
teDr.l.
b. One W:l,.S made by an unidentified plane at sea prior

the time of bombs away by our pathfindors. Aoong the early
a.tto.ckers were Irvings (or NiCks), Lldget oircrcl't, cmd unidentified
fighters which attacked minute. first bomb away by path_
finders.
c. It is estimated that 15-20 twin-engine fi&hters 35-'0
intorceptors met the B.29s. nut their intereoptlon __
