S~bjectl liining !lissi(," Directive for J~ly

1. Estieate of the Enemy Shipping Sit~ation.

a. The number of merchant vouolll of all si:ee ,unk or


dal::.llgtld b;' oino15 to date is at loast 200. It is estimated that in
the 100C goss ton and over clf:.ss of merchant ve,sele, from IS to
20 per cent of the total available to the enemy At the inception
of the ;:l1ni~ pro!;raJ:l hlLve to do.te been sunk or dlL"Illl.f>ed.
b. Forts and shipping lanes are estimated to have been
closed ofr periods of usually one to five days after each minin!;.
T)o ~ost eftedtive mining has been that accompliehed in ~ay and June
when relati~ly s~al1 missions were sent at frequent intervals to
remine shipping areas.
c. The overall economic effect of the mining program i.
impossible to evaluate accurately on the bosi' of ovailable intelli-
gence. It is believed that Japan needs to import llt leaet 1,000,000
tons of foods, coal, iron ore, aluminous shale and salt each month
to cnintll.in her wllr econoll1Y at existing levels. 'I'h1ch ot those im.
portant co~od1ties would first be llffected by II decrense In the
moveDent of shipping cannot be stated. It is prob~blo that all &Xe
badly needed by the Japanese, and that a substEU1tio.l Cecrease in the
import of any one would seriously h~per their war econocy. In any
event, it does o.ppeer that (1) Japo.n does not have abclh.ble (1.."'1
excess of ~erchant ship bottoms, and th~t (2) the aVailable ship
tonno.ge P4S probably been reduced in erfectiveness at least SO; as
a result of attacks, including cining, on Shipping during June.

2, The mission of mining operations during July is to maintain


and extend the blockade of Shiconoseki Straits anj nortrwestern Honshu
ports, and to initiate the mining of Korean ports in order to prevent
the i~?ortation of food and other raw materials into Japan. This
effort is in coordination with shipping strikes directed by CINCPAC
by our SUb;!lal ines, fast carrier task forces, and ]a.vy search plo.nes.

o 3. The 313th Bomb 'Xing will make continuous ~tse of one Bomb
Group to lay a total of 3870 mines during July in accordllnce with the
follovn~g schedule:

a, Continuous mining of Shimonoseki Str31ts will be given


prioriv! over other targets, Mining of each target will \e .pread
8.11 unirornly as possible over the entire month in a number of •••11
raidS in order to defeat enemy clearance methods.

b. £ines will be laid in harbors, swept channels, or in


regula.r channols in o.Ccordo.nce With cha,rtll bdd by the rlDi~ ot'tl0.r
313tb Bacb Wint. A particular errort will be made to mine all tarSBt

4, SpeCial Care .111 be to.lcen 1n bri"fing craw", in CliDil1£ of

5. If it becomes necessary to jettiso~ ~ines in the Sea of JapCln
this ~ll be done nt maximum speed to induce parachute failure. This
meaSure is necessary in order to reduce danger to our subOClr1nes.
~ines jettisoned in the Sea of Japan will be reported ~ith especial
cure.

6. Lines will ~e prepared as directed separately.

7. Dropping o.ltitude will be deter:nlned by the 3l3th Bomb ·fiog.

8, It 1s particulClrly important to report every ship sighting

tho.t the oboV8 conditions would co.ll for ~ genornl increase of sensi-

~ll tcrget width outweighs this consideration,

DIScUSSIon
2, It ho.s been assumed, for the purpose of calculo.ting the tables
in enclosures (B) nnd (0), thot shnJlow water is represented approxi.
~tely by the depth range of 3 to 6 fathoms. The first columns of
th::. t::.bles h:l'l7e !leen cemputed for tt,is int<:rv:ll end for ships of 1000
to 2....00 tons.
3. The recommendation, of reference (b), that planting depths of
4-3 type mines be held to less than 100 feet is repeated for the July
distribution.

4. CuIculo.tion of the most desirClble sensitivities of A·S type


minas, against the present targets, calls for a higher proportion of
nO~:ll sensitivity units tho.n that shown in the second column of en-
closure (C). However, it is considered neo,ssary that the diatribu.
tiOD lean towards the insensitive side in order to discriminate against
the 500 to 1000 ton targets. The requiremant for 2~ minimum actuation
will be realized 1n all cases wi th these mines.

5. In A-3 type mines, sensitivities hov:l been held down beoause


of ll.desire to keep the target width smo.l1 ilew actuation data in the
~rm20f N.O.L.U's 7241 and 7278. reveals a·marked tendency for A·3
