Admiral Chuichi Nagumo was an admiral in the Imperial Japanese Navy during World War II and one time commander of the Kido Butai, Combined Fleet's largest carrier battle group.
On 10 April 1941, Nagumo was appointed
Commander in Chief of the IJN 1st Air Fleet, the Imperial Japanese Navy's main Carrier battle group, largely due to his seniority. Many contemporaries and historians have doubted his suitability for this command, given his lack of familiarity with naval aviation.
By this time, he had visibly aged, physically and mentally. Physically, he suffered from arthritis, perhaps from his younger days as an athletic
fencer. Mentally, he had become a cautious officer who spent every ounce of his effort going over tactical plans of every operation he was involved in. kendo
Nishizo Tsukahara had some doubts with his appointment, and commented, "Nagumo was an officer of the old school, a specialist of torpedo and surface maneuvers.... He did not have any idea of the capability and potential of naval aviation." At home, Nagumo did not receive a loving description, either. One of his two sons described him as a brooding father who was obsessed (and later disappointed) with pressuring his sons to follow his footsteps into the navy. Contrastingly, Nagumo's junior officers in the navy viewed him as precisely the father figure that his sons did not.
However, while commanding the 1st Air Fleet, Nagumo oversaw the effective
attack on Pearl Harbor. (Although later critics have criticized his failure to launch the third wave of attack against Pearl Harbor, which might have destroyed the repair stations which would have rendered the most important American naval base in the Pacific useless). From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"I have lived in the United States and I know the might of their industrial complex. The United States is a sleeping giant and I am afraid that our attack has awakened it." Chuichi Nagumo - Quoted in "Energy Technology XI: Applications and Economics" by Richard F. Hill
Kamikaze AXIS and ALLIES RTS
Kamikaze - One of the most powerful special ops in the game. Orders a plane to crash into target location, causing massive damage.. Smaller area of effect than a carpet, but has the unique advantage of inflicting AP damage, which has a much better result versus armor. However, the Kamikaze is the least effective special op bomb versus buildings. A "Double Kami" or "Kami-V" will destroy just about everything when used correctly. [ compare all the special op bombs]
The Double Bomb - The most important aspect in online multiplayer is to coordinate the use of the Kamikaze with the other "bombs" your allies may (or may not) have. The "double bomb" can have devastating effects on enemy forces when used correctly. When you have acquired enough experience for your Kamikaze, let your allies know, and if someone else has one, hold onto yours until you can "double". [ more info]
The Single Bomb - Occasionally there are circumstances where you may need to use a single bomb to defend a base, or to prevent your forces from being " ". Once again, communicated with your allies, ask them if they have anything to counter the threat, and if not, go ahead and single bomb. pinched
If you have the only bomb on your team you have a little more freedom about when and where to use it. However, with freedom comes some responsibilty, so keep an eye on battlefield conditions, and if your allies need it more than you do, help them out.
The Front Lines - Another important aspect of using any bomb type special op, is to use them where you have nearby forces. Not only can you chase down wounded/routed regiments and "finish them off", but you can also use this as an opportunity to "push" (advance) the front lines, as enemy forces will be retreating to heal.
Charging Your Bomb - You also have a responsibilty to your allies to try to "charge" your bomb quickly by gaining as much experience as possible. That may mean you focus a little less on your economy, and a little more on making regiments and getting them into battle. The more troops you have fighting the quicker you will gain exp for your bomb!
General Nagumo Nagumo is Japan's second strongest general, as his Kamikaze can deliver an punishing 400 AP damage.. Although, Nagumo's other special ops have little to no effect in online play. Make sure to familiarize yourself with the inherent strengths of Japan [ LINK]
