Operation Downfall was a scenario that ran in Aces High in July, 2006. The basic motivation was to have a scenario based on the planned allied invasion of Japan in late 1945. It pitted a large number of allied carrier task groups, with late-war US Navy aircraft, late-war USAAF fighters, and B-24's against late-war Japanese aircraft and a small number of Me 262's, Me 163's, and Ar 234's.
