Historically, this is quite inaccurate as the Japanese would not have been using such suicidal tactics early in the war in 1941, when they were on a seemingly unstoppable offensive in the Pacific and South East Asia. It was much later in the war (1944-1945) when they began to desperately turn to suicide tactics like the Lunge Mine, the Kamikaze raids and the human-mine.


Type 99 Cannon

In some levels, the player will be attacked by Japanese A6M Zeroes which will attempt to strafe the player with their Type 99 cannons.
