Tunhua

Tunhua (128.22E 43.35N) was the location of a Japanese military airfield in Manchuria. When war broke out, the airfield based 65 Light Air Regiment with 36 Ki-30 "Ann" and 32 Light Air Regiment with 27 Ki-32 "Mary".

The mountainous terrain around Tunhua was ideal for defense, and the Japanese planned to hold the area to defend Korea in the event of a Russian invasion of Manchuria. The speed and power of the Russian invasion of August 1945 prevented these plans from being successfully implemented.
