34
Japanese authorities plan to purchase precision aviation missiles that can reach the territory of the DPRK and even mainland China, Reuters reports with reference to informed sources.


There is a global trend towards the use of longer-range missiles, and it is only natural that Japan would like to consider them
- Said one of the interlocutors of the agency.

Media: Japan intends to buy missiles capable of reaching the DPRK


According to sources, Tokyo will explore the possibility of equipping the F-15 fighter jets with American high-precision cruise missiles JASSM-ER of air-to-surface class. Missiles can hit targets a distance of a thousand kilometers.

In addition, Japanese media previously reported that the authorities are interested in acquiring the Joint Strike Missile (JSM) Norwegian missiles, which are designed to be placed on F-35 fighters and are capable of hitting ground targets and ships up to 500 kilometers away.

It is expected that the possibility of procurement will be studied in the framework of the new defense budget, the development of which will begin in April. So far, the money for the missiles is not included in his project, but additional funds may be allocated for the consideration of the initiative.

After the Second World War, Japan adheres to the limitations on offensive weapons, so far Tokyo is armed with missiles with a range of no more than 300 kilometers. Japanese Defense Minister Itunori Onodera said that while Tokyo is not considering the allocation of funds for longer-range missiles and expects that in the event of a conflict, attacks on enemy bases will be inflicted by the United States, reports RIA News.

      Missiles that can fly, and even fly. I even know who they "want" to buy from. So they suggest that hell refuse.

        Trump is increasingly reminiscent of a street "retractor." Previously, such people were running around exhibitions and trying to foist household appliances. He sits right there, sickly, clutching his head in his hands - well, who else would have to sell something else from the weapon. And it turns out.

                    look - he already focuses on the extraction of gold and diamonds in Africa, it is not for nothing that new bases are being deployed there, and the most far-sighted ones have already fled to Moscow - Sudan as an example

                        "In Sudan, people are not stupid" ////

                        Unfortunately, people in Sudan, as well as in neighboring Somalia, are extremely stupid. sad
                        There is no stupider. Therefore, there is such poverty and devastation.

    For some reason, it seems to me that these missiles will no longer help the Japanese in case of war! The Chinese have long had such, and there are many more than Japan can buy.

      If I am not mistaken, Sakyo Komatsu for Japan has already described its end. A volcanic island ... a North Korean diver with a nuclear bomb on his belt will swim up - he will throw him in a rift in the earth's crust beneath Fuji ... and that's it! Do not admire more sakura, do not drink sake ....

    The seller of future missiles is known. It is not for nothing that it so diligently pumps up tension in this region. That's just why the Japanese rockets when you can swim (figuratively) to North Korea to get. Or do you still don’t want to fight?

      rotmistr60 Today, 11:28. That is naive! Need, not need! The main thing is for those who produce it! And this is the main thing! I don’t know how their weapons will lead in case of war. A flock of Tomahawks lost their fighters due to the wrong flight program of the vaunted programmers of the vaunted country. Where these missiles will fly (in the case of the purchase or use of their United States) is not known. Maybe instead of flying to the DPRK, they will rush to Tokyo. And write off the attack on the DPRK. And our domestic air defense systems were also not up to par. If you believe the news, the reliability of 50 to 50. Although recently spat upon the US air defense.

        So rockets are intended for military installations. Moreover, the tenant is extremely reluctant to make repairs in someone else's apartment. “The Prime Minister of Japan, after President Putin returned to his homeland, gave an interview from which it followed that it was not about following Russian legislation, but about creating a new format and special, special legislation that, as the Japanese say, would not call into question their position that these islands are Japanese ”is what joint development
