Near the end of World War II, Vice Admiral Onishi Takijino recommended that the Japanese navy form special groups of men and aircraft to attack the American warships gathering to conduct amphibious landings in the Philippines. The Japanese used the word Tokko-tai (Special Attack) to describe these units. To the Allies, they became known as the kamikaze. By war’s end, some 5,000 pilots died making Tokko attacks.
The Ohka (Cherry Blossom) was designed to allow a pilot with minimal training to drop from a Japanese "Betty" bomber at high altitude and guide his aircraft with its warhead at high speed into an Allied warship. While several rocket-powered Ohka 11s still exist, this Ohka 22 is the only surviving "Campini" jet-powered version of the aircraft. It was captured in Japan in 1945. Unlike the Ohka 11, the Ohka 22 never became operational.

Valador, Inc. unveiled the 3D Model of the West Virginia Penitentiary at the 2009 Mock Prison Riot that took place between May 2nd and 5th. The software is available at the following address: mockprisonriot.org The 3D Model of the West Virginia Penitentiary was developed to support teams participating in the Mock Prison Riot held annually in Moundsville, West Virginia. The penitentiary began operation in 1876 and no detailed blueprints of the prison exist. Valador used advanced light detection and ranging (LIDAR) technology to produce detailed maps of the penitentiary training environments and then integrated these maps into PC game engine technology. The resulting 3D Model of the West Virginia Penitentiary allows users to virtually walk around the penitentiary training environments, take measurements, and get a tactical overview of their surroundings. This is all done using an off-the-shelf PC. Video Rating: 0 / 5
