The IJAAF does NOT cover itself with glory, only shooting 50% effectiveness, but achieving 36 hits due to massive numbers. 10th LRB eliminated.

Operation Forager Bonus flips any one of the units, and I'm going to presume it will be 5th Air Force. If you wish to change it, let me know, but I might adjust the PBM if it changes.
