Japan and the United States implemented a project of a joint sea-based missile defense system


According to the newspaper "Yomiuri", "it is based on the fact that on hazardous areas American ships with missile defense systems are immediately replaced by Japanese, when they are forced to leave to resupply and rest the team."

Sources told the newspaper that “Japanese Minister of Defense Tomomi Inada personally asked her American counterpart Ashton Carter to introduce such a system during her visit to Washington in September.” According to the cooperation agreement, the Pentagon is not obliged to provide such assistance in peacetime, but the head of department agreed to such cooperation, “because it leads to the further integration of the anti-missile systems of the two countries”.

Earlier, Tokyo decided to constantly keep on a dangerous direction (meaning the DPRK) one of the ships capable of shooting down ballistic missiles. However, to create a continuously operating system in Japan, their ships are not enough. Now, at the request of the Japanese Minister of Defense, American ships based on the base of Yokosuka at the entrance to Tokyo Bay began to overlap voids in the missile defense system.

Recall that in addition to the sea-based missile defense system, Washington and Tokyo have Patriot PAC-3 ground complexes in Japan. The military budget of the country for 2017 g provides the means to significantly increase their range.

        There is no "self-isolation" there. It was the United States that imposed a trade embargo against the ROK because the ROK sent the great mattress presidents to a well-known address.

      why some specific islands? They will patrol in the Sea of ​​Japan and shoot down on the take-off trajectory.

        What are we all doing on missile defense? This is not a missile defense, it is a floating launch pad for an attack, and so massive that no missile defense can cope.

          But the capitalists will not do anything. The capitalist is a friend, brother, matchmaker and partner to the capitalist. Have not you heard?

      Have you looked at the map?
      Iskander from the Far East reach main Japan?
      It is not necessary to consider people as fools, neither ours, nor ours.
      So "your opinion" is stupid and unfounded.
      Made of OTR - some kind of fetish. Wunderwaffe is just some.
      Characteristics do you know him?

    And why do we need to cooperate with Japan on the Kuril Islands, because it is obvious not only yoko, but also.

    According to the agreement on cooperation, the Pentagon is not obliged to provide such assistance in peacetime, but the head of the department agreed not to such cooperation, "because it leads to further integration of the anti-ballistic systems of the two countries."

    In the same way, they will "integrate" in the Kuril Islands, the Pentagon is not obliged, but if they ask .... then.

    in addition to sea-based missile defense, Washington and Tokyo have Patriot PAC-3 ground systems in Japan. The military budget of the country for 2017 provides funds to significantly increase their range.
    In general, sea-based missile defense is a convenient thing, with its advantages. It has deployed the line wherever you want, and it is not as vulnerable as stationary objects. The Patriots are already the closest line of such a defense for especially important objects, as in the photo the PAC-3 was deployed in Tokyo (I wonder what the range will be after the upgrade).The Japanese and the Americans and the Yuk are simply obligated to erect a monument somewhere for all that contribution to strengthening their defense capabilities. No kidding, but the eastern echelon of missile defense is beginning to take shape. And this is definitely not from the North Koreans.

    North Korea has nothing to do with it!
    Any action of America is an act against Russia, everything else is just an excuse!
    I’m not surprised that Japanese Prime Minister gave Putin sake yesterday, and today he is drinking whiskey with Obama!

      Say thanks to Gorbachev for the collapse of the Warsaw block and the USSR. Let’s say thanks to Yeltsin for the collapse of the USSR and forsaking all countries from which he could and allowed the creation of NATO on the borders of Russia. Let’s say thank you to Putin that he also did not stop the expansion of NATO and missile defense to the borders of Russia. We say thanks to all the people of Russia and to you and me personally for not even thinking about this topic.

        But you need to think, analyze, draw conclusions!
        If we do not like rulers for some reason, this does not mean at all that we do not love our homeland!

    In the 50s, an agricultural barge drifted in the Sea of ​​Japan with a crew of 4, led by senior sergeant Ziganshin. No one saw them for more than 40 days, until the US aircraft carrier almost ran along the side of the barge, and so, if you lower a thousand rafts with 3-5 units of crew, having on board an light version of missile defense and having a message about enemy launches, neutralize them ... there will be losses? Well, what about! But the islands ... save!

      In words, everything is so simple. But in fact, the creation of a "light anti-missile" missile defense on boats with a crew of 3-10 people in the amount of several dozen pieces is a task of the level of fantastic stories.
