2. srRATEG'i AND PLAN OF opgrU.TIONS:
a. Selection of D-Dayl D',le to the continued '
weather over the Japanese homeland for precision banbing operat10ns.
a second series of incendiary mi3sioDs was planned. (see Tectlcnl Mis..
alon :Report for Missions No. 206 tnrough 209 for details of the first
series). The targets selected were cities that were relatively lightly
defended and plans were made to take maximum advantage of radar banb-
ing dlethods. M n result of 3 favorable weather prediction on
June. firm decision was made to att;.ack.
b. IJnportenca of Targetsl
(1) Mission No. 210 -_ TQyohashi -- Located 30 miles
southeast of Nagoye, Toyohasbi has assumed greg,ter military import-
ance in recent years. In thif:l city acquired 8 19.rge Navy ar-
s8na1 end is reported to be making alrcr\tt cannon end tt8chine guns.
It also has an ArIIV arseDl1l and m1s.cellaneous industries. Situg,ted
on the min Tokaido Railroad line. ,Toyobashi was formerly a silk
center and an aru\y school area.
(2) Mission No. 211 ,_ Fukuolal - This city. 10C3.ted
on the north.... est c0.4st of 9.bout 35 r:liles southwest of the
Shimonoseki Straits. is important the carmercia1 and administra-
tive center of the Slrrounding are"!l. It h'ls !1 J-lllile vide blSY a1-

most eompletely'closed trom the sea by a peninsu13 and Islao4.
('Ihh bay was lIl1ned on 7 rune. Mission No. 190. and 15 June. Mission
No. 204.) The city is 7 miles lona and t mile wide and crossed by
maJV' canals. It 1s an import:lJ1t port aDd is on 8. m.:1jor branch of
the K",yual:al Railroad.
(3) MilSton No. 212 .- -- Thie 8ll'lall trade
center on the Dlaio Tokaido Rail1'oad 11ne. about 85 miles 90uthwellt ot
Tokyo, has minor railroad shops. a pm1er plant, aluminum lactory.
iron works and 2 spinning mills.
c. Details of Plannina--Operatio1l3b
(1) Bombing Plans:
(8) Determination of Bomb Loo.ds:
1_ The first 2 Ck'oups ot each at the 4''1iIlglll
takint part. in thoso' 3 missions qare to C3%'ry AN·U47A2 incendiary
banb!l, fuzed with an inshntano0U3 nOSl).. Tha sscond 2 Groups of the
S8th. 73rd aDd 314th Wings aM. the third Group of the 313tb Wing were
to carry SOO-pound aimable clusters containing M-69 banbs sot to open
2500 feet above the br£cts. For Missions N.ll:lbered 210 and 211 the
lntorvalocotcr setting tor tl'1o bQ!lro tmll to be 100 tee' for tho boobs
§OM 50 teet tar the clusters. and for &iis::Jion Number 212. the Dotting
wall to be 75 and 50 feet, respectiYely, tor bcrnbs aDd elusters•..
b Each Wing was to havo a pathfinder force
ot approximately 1 squadron of the best available radar crews pre-
cede the main terce to ma.rk with inceDiiary banbs the assigned mean
points of ic:lpact in the target areas..
,). '!he incediaries listed abare were select-
ed sl nce it was planned to drop a densi ty of appraxim3te!Y 200 tons
per mile on the target areas. The 1 to 1 ratio of incendiary
banba and clusters to be used had provad a superior canbination in
previous XXI Banber Ccmm.aDi attacks on lightly-constructed urban in-'
dustrial and rosidential areas. The fuzings and interval<rl8te:r set-
tings specified has been used effectively on previous strikes and
were considered most desirable for the average target area. Photo
roconnaissance Q3S not available of tho small urban areas that had
previously been struck by this and for that reason these
missions were planned with the actu:ll expected accuracy for radar
bombing being unknown.
(b) Banbing rnte:, (See Annex A. Part II, tor
chart showing mean points ot impact and force assignod to o3ch.)
10 For Miss!on Number 210, 1 moan point of
impact ;las selected in Toyobashi, ..herobya prob3.ble circular error
of 4000 teet included the industrhl eastern section well as the
dense built-up area at tho city.
,go The 2 me-nn points ot impact selected tor
Mission Number 211 were in the most intlalllmable and imustrializod
3.6 square miles in the heart of the cresco nt-shaped city of Fukuoka.
The moan points of impact bed prob03ble cireular errors of 4000 fact
that overlapped and included rnal'O' ioportant targets•
.
Jo For Misskon Nuober 212, the mean point ot
impact selected was 80uthwegt of thl!:l castle in Shhuoka am. a 4000-
foot probable circular error included all of the important industry
in tho city.

(1) A total of 12 enemy ::l.ircrnft 'J'lS siGhted by individ-
u.'\l crens. No attacks tlorc·sust'linod. One station"\rY soarchlight 'J3.!J
obscrvod in tho target area, '.1ith 30. unidentified S/E orbiting around
1t.

§¥£B!!
(2) Two balls of fire were observed just before bQllbs
away. One briGht -ball of fireR approached to within 50 yards'of I
B-29 at 1 o'clock low at a very high speed at an altitude or 9.800
feet. The B-29 took sli,:;ht evasive action am fired at the object
with no apparent results. After the object passed under the B-29.
visual contact was lost. No wing nor fuselage was seen in connec-
tion therewith. Another object having the of a large
tracer with trailing snoke passed approximately 100 feet over 1
B-29. AGain. no other distinguishing features were noted. Inas-
much as the licshted objects did not trail the B-29' s as in the past
and considering the number of ground-to-air rockets reported. it
was possible that the reported objects were actually rockets.
(3) One phosphorus bcmb burst was observed just after
bcmbs away. The reporting crew was of the opinion th:lt it was an
air-to-air bomb due to the fact that after bursting it descerrled at
a 45';'degree angle (300 yards to the left of the observing llircr'lft
at 9.800 feet).
b. 'U3th WinB:
(1) Twelve enemy aircraft were encountered. end they
made a total of 4 attacks.
(2) One enerqy aircraft was observed flying up a
searchlight beam over the target.
(3) One ball of fire was observed ahead and diaap-'
peared into the sooke over the target.

a. A total of 18 enemy at rcraft and B3.ke type banbs was
encountered on this mission, and. 4 attacks "I1ere made.
b. One of the Bake bcnbs 8100 the aerial banbs were

o. Over the target aren heavy flak W9S reported as nil to
meager and generally inaccurate. Medium flak was described as meager
to mOderate ani accurate. From 1 to 3 searchlight beams (1 was blue)
were reported in the target area, but no aircraft were illuminated.
d. No aircraft gere lost to flak, md of 136 aircraft at-
tacking 2. or 1.47%. sustained flak d3lllaCed.
e. On withdrawal, flak W3S encountered fran over water posi-
tions south of the'Toyohashi.Hamamatsu area. It was described ae
measer to moderate, inaccurate medium flak. In this connection 3
aircraft reported what may possibly be a ne\7 t'J.ctic in AA defense.
After breakaway these aircraft iJ8re ·paced· by an E/A carrying a
bri.:.,ht amber light. The E/A remained about 800 yards behind nnd
level. 'I\ie1ve to 35 miles orf shore 14 small surface vessels Rere
observed both vi sually and by radar. These craft were staggered in
the approximate positions indiMted on the sketch below. Moderate
AN fire was emanating from these craft. 'nle possibility that this
might have been a Jre:..arranged deployment of Sllll craft to inter-
cept Ale on the approach and/or breakaway should not be discredited.

(1) Several greenish blue flares uere observed ascend-

and, upon exploding, briefly illuminated the sky,
(2) Several greenish explosions or gloos on the ground
nere reported. in the target aroa. Crans reported the appearance of
these glo...·s seemed to be' coordinated ai th' the searchlights, This
apparentl,y a similar, it not the same, phenomenon described in
the Tokyo area on XXI Bomber Ccmnand Mission No, 183 (details ot
nbich appeared in XXI Bomber Command Tactical Mission Report).
(3) Six crelvs reported a series of red or amber ground
lights or flares (not searchlights) en route and out of Kyushu. These
lights or flares rrere estimated to 00'10 to 20 miles apart ani nou1d
come on in pairs 8S a 8-29 approached, then go off after the aircratt
passed over, The sequence of turning tbem on and off nas done in
such a manner that the B-29's ground patb nas \1e11 def'ined. This
same phenanenon was reported around Nagoya, From tbe avai 1-
able information there seemed to bO no relationship between these
lights ani flak defenses. However, the possibility exists that trese
lights might be used to define the 8-29 flight paths to vector enem;y
interceptor aircraft.
(4) One cren reported that about 100 possible rockets
came up fran 5 positions just south of Fukuoka. About one half of
these rockets bad ltt'een trails, am one balt red trails. They as-
cended to about 12,000 feet, looped over and exploded nith ahite
