That was with the consideration that Knightmares were in play. It wouldn't have happened in conventional warfare, because they wouldn't have so easily crushed the Japanese forces.

Patently untrue. It is not necessary to completely establish aerial and naval superiority to land ground troops. A quick drop would be enough to get the Knightmares in, then they tear up the beach defenses. Knightmares completely altered the balance of power. They would not have been nearly as successful in a regular conflict.
