Now they must fight with determination to hold their gains, to push the westerners back and consolidate Japanese control. Every inch of ground, each beach, village and airfield, are defended with a ferocity against which no enemy can stand.

A Field Artillery Battery Gun Sections use the Fire Bursts special rule.
Fire Bursts
Japanese artillery relied on rapid bursts of fire from limited numbers of guns. This conserved ammunition and made good use of their very limited artillery resources. Japanese artillery operates in sections of one or two guns.

When firing two-gun Artillery Bombardments Japanese Hohei Battalion Gun Platoons, Hohei Regimental Gun Platoons, and Field Artillery batteries do not re-roll hits. Single-gun batteries still retain the +1 penalty on the roll To Hit (see page 131 of the rulebook).
