Given these harsh circumstances, heightened precautions are being taken at the Ministry of Defense, and PAC-3 batteries are sent to Oshima Peninsula as one of them, in preparation for unforeseen situations, today in Hakodate

Japan Deploys Patriot Complexes in Hokkaido in Response to DPRK Threat


A transcript of his speech is posted on the website of the Ministry of Defense of Japan.

Onodera clarified that the PAC-3 complexes will be redeployed to the Hakodate military base of Japan’s self-defense forces.

As for the Ministry of Defense, it will make every effort to ensure the safety and protection of citizens in any situation.
- stressed the Japanese minister.

The last launch of the rocket in the DPRK took place on September 15, despite the tightening of UN Security Council sanctions after the testing of a thermonuclear warhead conducted by Pyongyang 3 in September, RIA News.

    Japan Deploys Patriot Complexes in Hokkaido in Response to DPRK Threat

    What the United States sought. Japan's big greetings from Kim Jong-un with condolences on how their Americans divorced.

      "Patriot" is not imprisoned for intercepting the heads of ICBMs. The Japanese hit, definitely. laughing

        Why, intercepts ballistic and aerodynamic targets, each has its own rocket.

            It was moving at high altitude, and therefore it’s not enough range, the Patriot is designed for an object-based missile defense, if it had been shunned right across Japan, it could have been discussed.

    If kneading starts with Koreans, this little fart will not help the Japanese. But the mattresses with these placements and supplies are firmly held by the Japanese for their causal place, zealously convincing them that their weapons will protect them.

    I wonder if they were going to shoot down nuclear missiles over their territory, protecting guam?

      The last Korean missile flew over Japan.
      Just 4 years ago this was written:
      ... it became known that the DPRK army, in the event of hostilities, will strike at the largest cities in Japan. On Wednesday, April 10, the central North Korean newspaper Nodon Sinmun wrote.
      The publication said that Japan is located very close to the territory of North Korea, which means that it is simply impossible to avoid attacks.
      The newspaper also emphasized that the DPRK military command was ready to launch a series of attacks on Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka and many other densely populated cities in Japan. Also, “Nodon Sinmun” says that in the event of a war, “all of Japan will turn into a battlefield.” Http://www.japantoday.ru/novosti-yaponii/knd

    Only gasoline is burned in vain, and it will be very expensive in the post-apocalypse.

      According to the latest data available in official access: the target’s speed is about 3500 km / h on a catch-up course, and about 4000 on a approaching one, a height of 25 km, a radius from 170-200 km, most likely something could be modernized, with a range of up to 250. And Now compare with the parameters of the KIMA rockets, which is CHEN and it turns out that only on the accelerating trajectory, you can somehow get into them while knowing exactly the launch site. TNAD is a little better, there the accelerators at the first stage are more powerful, for the time during which they can bring down very limited and you definitely need to know the launch area. And the DPRK uses mobile launchers, so knocking down 100% of everything that launches doesn’t work out unequivocally, especially in Japan, there the rocket should already have a decent height and speed close to the limit of interceptor missiles. Even our air defense is the best in the world, it cannot be guaranteed to bring down high-speed targets with one missile, always two consumption! And TNAD probably should shoot with the whole battery!

        that is, ballistic missiles are not so easy to shoot down, then why are the Japanese deploying their Patriot?

          The policy is already working here. Mattresses at the UN farted, the colonies said there! Patriot will definitely not be able to bring down THFAD, maybe he is closer to the launch areas. In general, as one Pvoshnik put it, to bring down a rocket with another rocket, this is how to thread a needle with a very big hangover! Moreover, the mattresses all systems tied to satellites and the reaction time has increased!

    And what else do the Japanese do. Surely, the locals are interested in: “Why are we sending loot to the orchestra? So that we have darted rockets over our heads? Or so as not to darted?” So they unfold what is ...

    But it is imprisoned to intercept OTR and medium-range missiles. At least the HERA missile, this complex was intercepted during testing. For ICBMs - and the TSAAD is not intended for ICBMs. Only one type of interceptor deployed on the mainland of America is capable of intercepting ICBM BBs - these are GBI interceptors
    So the deployment of PAC-3 systems in Japan, as well as Aegis Ashor and TCAAD, are designed to intercept missiles such as Hwason-6/7, Nodon, Pugkuksong-1/2, and maximum Hwason-12 "
    BB ICBMs these complexes are not able to intercept a priori. They did not sharpen under them. All of these systems are theater missile defense ...

    I wonder what PAC-3 complexes are capable of?

    Interception of tactical, operational tactical and maximum missiles of medium range. Interception range depending on modifications from 25 km to about 100
