Description: At first, the Mirai attempts to leave, rather than stand and fight, but Taki forces the issue by ordering the I-21 to surface. Rather than leave the I-21 to be attacked Captain Umezu decides to stay and fight. Kikuchi thinks he can spare lives by demonstrating Mirai's firepower to destroy only a fraction of the American strike force, so that the rest would be frightened away. Using its advanced weapons, the Mirai shoots down two thirds of the American aircraft in less than a minute. However, the Americans press their attack leaving the Mirai damaged and with numerous casualties.
