In the late stages of WW2, Japan had a variety of suicide weapons and tactics, which were delivered in many different ways, including air, ground, and sea. The kamikaze where the most famous, sacrificing their life as they guided their planes into enemy warships; but there where also many other lesser-known suicide troops. The Fukuryu suicide scuba divers, Shinyo suicide boats, Kairyu midget submarines, Kaiten human torpedo, and the Ohka rocket powered flying bomb are just a few examples. Infantry versions could be as simple as strapping an anti-tank mine to your chest, or other varieties that were attached to poles.

Captain Okuyama and Giretsu Airborne unit depart on their mission to Okinawa
Giretsu Kuteitai
One of the most famous uses of "Banzai" or "Kamikaze" airborne was by the Giretsu Kuteitai, an airborne special forces unit. Giretsu missions were planned for nightime, as commando units would para-drop or crash land their transports on an enemy airfield; then destroy as many aircraft and supplies as possible. Giretsu operations were intended as suicide attacks, as there were never any plans to extract the attack force.
May 24 1945: Sixteen Ki-21-IIb's, each with 14 commandos set off to attack airfields in Yontan and Kadena. Only five planes made it to the target, managing to crash-land at Yontan airfield. The 69 surviving commandos then destroyed 70,000 gallons of fuel and nine aircraft, damaging 29 more before being killed to the last man.
A much larger scale attack on bases in the Marianas was planned with 200 transports and 2,000 commandos. Scheduled for the night of August 9, 1945, but by then allied airpower had destroyed all the troop transports on the ground.

Banzai airborne and infantry is rarely seen in A&A due to it's combat limitations, as well as the availability of a cheaper and more versatile regiment, heavy airborne. The banzai unit will only use it's suicide weapon on vehicles, attacking infantry and buildings only with a Type 99 Rifle. Considering airborne is often used to attack buildings, that's a definate disadvantage.
Not only is heavy airborne cheaper, it doesn't require an upgrade, is much stronger versus infantry, better at attacking bases, and offers a morale damage effect as well.



In theory, you could entrench a bunch of banzai airborne in a city or heavily forested area, keep them in supply, and it would be very hard for vehicles to uproot them. However it would be a disaster if sniper infantry shows up, and the tactic would probably work better with banzai infantry as they have more banzai units. We would only recommend experienced players to experiment with banzai, and even then it's questionable.
Whatever you choose to deploy, it's up to you as commander to put your forces in an advantageous position with an understanding of base resistances, terrain modifiers, formation, upgrades, special ops, military tactics, and more.
Banzai Airborne - That concludes the basics of Banzai Airborne. Like our story? Please Digg it! Have a correction, addition, question, or other? You can contribute to ur A&A wiki, post in the official forum thread..
