The Battle of the Indian Ocean, the last battle of the Free British Fleet, the Free Britain sent all the warships and carrier aircraft to fight against the Japanese navy, fighting desperately, carrying Britain's last glory, and fighting to the death with the powerful Japanese naval fleet, but this was destined to be in vain. Japan has powerful technology and warships far beyond Britain. The Free British navy is destined to destroy its entire army in this naval battle.

Japanese air warships sent their own jet carrier squadrons to launch the first wave of attacks. Japan's technology is comparable today and the past. The task of attacking warships in naval battles is not only torpedoes, but now small anti-ship missiles can also deal with outdated British warships

The first round of attacks by the Japanese carrier-based aircraft squadron has successfully caused serious damage to the British fleet. The ending of the Indian Ocean naval battle has gradually become clear, and the prestige of the British navy has disappeared, but Britain will never recognize this failure. If they are destined to end in destruction, they will die with the enemy, even if they use suicide attack tactics

That is to say, the free British navy is destined to sink in this naval battle.

Fix it. It's not the past.

The most unforgettable scene of the Indian Ocean naval battle was that the Royal Navy carrier-based aircraft squadron began to use suicide attacks to hit the Japanese fleet. However, the new anti-aircraft missiles used by the Japanese warship, and some planes were shot down by missiles and then fell into the sea before hitting the warship

Even if the British pilots made all efforts to bring great damage to the Japanese fleet, these pilots invariably died in battle or were captured by the Japanese, because the anti-aircraft barrage of the Japanese army burned the efforts of the Royal Navy carrier-based squadron, and British pilots could not break through anti-aircraft artillery, which may herald the end of the British Royal Navy: destruction

British torpedo bombers are still dominated by old biplane structures, so they have to use numbers and cluster tactics to seriously hit the Japanese fleet, but this is also a futile choice, because the armor of this Japanese battleship is indestructible, and it is also equipped with the latest experimental radar and new shipboard computer, as well as experimental fire control equipment, that is, the anti-aircraft gun of this battleship will be shot down directly as soon as the British aircraft is seen, and the hit rate is extremely high.

Pre-outbreak photograph of the University of Cambridge, the ground zero of the Rage Virus outbreak. The outbreak began on the evening on May 4, 2002 when misguided animal activists released chimpanzees that were infected with a novel virus that was intended to be used as bioweapon by the Ministry of Defense. The first infected spread out to other areas, adding scores of others to the ranks.

One of the first known photographs of the an infected taken from a film camera just right outside a private property in Camrbidge, May 4, 2002. They are colloquially known as "Ragers" once the culprit responsible for the aggression was named by the NHS. Before that term came into fruition, these infected were mistaken as drunk hooligans or people who took an hallucinogenic drug. Due to the lack of information, policemen sent to arrest these "hooligans" and paramedics sent to provide medical assistance were attacked by them. Others were too bady beaten up that they died on the spot. Those that didn't became Ragers in less than 30 seconds. This lack of information is the cause why the outbreak spread so fast from Cambridge and into neighboring cities. Two weeks later, London would fall to the virus.

Cambridge police cars line up a street where "hooligans" were believed to have rioted and killed several innocent bystanders, May 4, 2002. These police officers, along with their EMS and firefighter counterparts, would become the first frontline casualties in the fight against the Rage Virus which would soon envelope the entire island of Great Britain in the next 28 days.

From @kspence92's 28 Days Later - Death of a Nation. Honestly, one of the best fanfiction timelines written on this forum. It serves as the spiritual predecessor to Days and a spiritual successor to Weeks. Posting this since today is the 20th anniversary of the UK Rage Virus Epidemic in the ATL.

In 1944, Emperor Showa and the Prime Minister of Japan took a jet seaplane to Hamburg Harbour, Germany for a four-week friendly visit. Japanese jets would escort them to prevent Soviet fighter jets from taking advantage of the opportunity to attack.

Jet seaplanes, Japan was the first to develop jet seaplanes. At that time, although seaplanes could be large or small, seaplanes with jet engines had always been a big problem for every designer. However, Japan successfully overcome this problem, so it can be said that the era of jet seaplanes had arrived.

In 1943, Japan was building a new submarine, and this was the first strategic submarine equipped with an experimental nuclear engine. At that time, the Japanese navy's request for new submarines was to cope with the more powerful warships and submarines in the future, and considering that aircraft carriers would also become the main force of the fleet, so it decided to apply new technologies to develop more powerful submarines. Considering that the United States would join the war in the near future to reverse the so-called situation, the submarine was also built in response to the U.S. Navy. Although the United States did not participate in the war, it could not guarantee to remain neutral and could not stand idly watch how Britain and the Soviet Union lost in front of Japan and Germany. Therefore, this submarine can be said to be the predecessor of post-war Cold War submarines and a secret weapon to fight against

Decisive Darkness: What if Japan hadn't surrendered in 1945? by @The_Red​

Two of the ships destroyed in the Typhoon Louise
In this photo just shows the fraction of the near hundreds of vessels damaged and destroyed in the Typhoon that hit Okinawa in October 1945, delaying Operation Majestic.
Due to this issue, the US Armed Forces stopped temporarily the Lend-Lease to replace their loses, plus there were report of Navy units stationed in Okinawa during the war had their modern Browning Automatic Rifle replaced with M1917 Lewis!! (as it's very unlikely for Japan to reconquer the island, they were armed with with some Great War firearms)

One of the two surviving sistership of Altmark/Uckermark (the other survivng been given to the USN as USS Conecuh), HMS Bulawayo served in the British Pacific Fleet during the remaining duration of World War 2 as a oil/supply tanker almost in the same way it served in the Kriegsmarine, but unlike the Germans, they operated alongeside their former enemies in formations (they are reports of German sailors onboard the ship, but it's unconfirmed)

One of the few surviving J7W1 Shinden "Chris" fuselages in the US
While the IJN accepted the ordered of at least 150 Shinden up to December 31, plus more than 1,000 in 1946, in the end, only at best 40 were completed up to VJ.
While designed as a interceptor of B-29 Superfortress (with B-32 Dominators, plus Tiger Force Avro Lincoln, Lancaster and B-24 Liberators), it ironically never shoot down a single four-engined bomber, instead escorting Kamikaze aircrafts on X-Day, plus also a few were expended as kamikaze on the following days.

Post-war victory parade in Tokyo. Pictured here are M4 Shermans, provided to the Imperial Japanese Army as part of Lend-Lease when it was eventually extended to Japan. These particular Shermans are part of the 26th Tank Regiment, which under Baron Nishi Takeichi saw heavy action in the fighting to reclaim Manchukuo, and the drive into Siberia.

Kawashima Yoshiko, or to use her birth-name, Aisin Gioro Xianyu. A Japanese asset in Manchukuo, prior to the outbreak of war she had been increasingly sidelined thanks to growing criticism of the crimes of the Kwangtung Army in Manchukuo. However, the Soviet Occupation would grant her effectively a 'new lease of life', as she took up arms against the occupiers, leading a major insurgency force of ethnic Manchus and White Russians between 1940 and her death in battle in 1943. Kawashima is a somewhat mixed figure today. On the one hand, for some time she was adopted as somewhat of an inspiration by Japanese, South-East Asian and Western feminists, given her own prowess in combat and the fact that her guerrillas included both men and women, while her historical bisexuality meant that she also became somewhat of an icon in the LGBT rights movement. However, she is reviled as a traitor in the Republic of China, while her collaboration with the pre-democratic Japanese regime and her morphine addiction have also led to reevaluations (though in response to the former many have pointed out that she had been increasingly turning against the Japanese prior to the war, and fought to free Manchuria from Soviet oppression). In the end, she can best be described as 'complicated'.

The 'Tancho' was the product of joint research between Mitsubishi and North American Aviation, with the American version of the jet being the 'Longsword'.​
