yzfwsf, nice finding!

| _ _ 2 | _ _ _ | _ _ _ | A
| 4 _ _ | _ 1 _ | _ _ 2 | B
| _ 5 _ | 7 _ _ | _ 6 4 | C

| 5 _ _ | _ _ _ | _ _ _ | D
| _ _ 3 | _ _ _ | 4 _ _ | E
| _ 8 _ | 6 _ _ | _ 9 5 | F

| 8 _ _ | 9 _ _ | 5 _ _ | G
| _ 9 _ | _ _ 8 | _ _ 7 | H
| _ _ 5 | _ 6 7 | _ 8 9 | J

(u)G56 -> (u)[H8|J2] where (u in 1234)
| 1G6 -> 1[C7-H8|F7-H8|F13&C13-J2]
| 2G56 -> 2C56 2[F7-H8|F1-J2]
| 3G56 -> 3[C7-H8|F7-H8|F56&C1-J2]
| 4G56 -> 4H8

So Exocet [1234]G56 H8 J2
(uv)G56 -> (uv)H8.J2 where (uv in 1234)

-4H8 -4J2 -4G56
| 4H8 -> 4J2 contradiction.
| 4J2 -> 4H8 contradiction.

-6H7
| (uv)G56 -> (uv)J12 (uv)H78 where (uv in 1234)

+4J4 +4G8 +6G9

Then

| _ _ 2 | _ 4 6 | _ _ _ | A
| 4 _ 6 | _ 1 _ | _ _ 2 | B
| _ 5 8 | 7 _ _ | _ 6 4 | C

| 5 4 9 | _ _ _ | 6 _ _ | D
| _ 6 3 | _ _ _ | 4 _ _ | E
| _ 8 _ | 6 _ 4 | _ 9 5 | F

| 8 _ _ | 9 _ _ | 5 4 6 | G
| 6 9 4 | _ _ 8 | _ _ 7 | H
| _ _ 5 | 4 6 7 | _ 8 9 | J

+1F3
| 1[HJ7-A89-C1-F3|H8-J1-F3]

[13]A9 -> 8E9
| 1A9 -> 8E9
| 3A9 -> 18DE9 237DE8.F7 27E18 [15]E4 5[A4|A8]=[5A4|5A8 7B8 3B2 58AB4 5AB4]=5AB4 1E4 8E9

Then to the end with basics.
