Japan intends to speed up the process of deploying the Aegis Ashore missile defense system

17
The Japanese government intends to accelerate the deployment of the American missile defense system Aegis Ashore in the country in connection with the North Korean threat, reports TASS the message of the newspaper Asahi Shimbun.




The publication notes that Tokyo originally planned to deploy the above ground systems in two prefectures to the 2023 year.

The government also decided to allocate 2,1 billion yen ($ 18 million) from the supplementary budget for the current fiscal year, which will be used to prepare for the acquisition of American systems (previously it was planned to start allocating funds in the 2018 fiscal year, which will start on April 1).

Currently, Japan has a two-level missile defense system. Equipped with Aegis systems, ships are armed with SM-3 interceptor missiles, which are capable of shooting down a ballistic missile in the middle of its trajectory. The Patriot PAC-3 complexes are involved in the second level of the missile defense system (they intercept missiles at the final stage of the flight).

According to Japanese experts, two Aegis Ashore units are enough to protect the entire territory of the country from a possible missile strike, each of which costs about 80 billion yen (about $ 728 million). Earlier it was reported that they can be placed in the prefectures of Akita and Yamaguchi from the Sea of ​​Japan.

        I think to rejoice early. Installations will still be turned towards Russia. The spaceport there is also close to the heap. North Korea - this is just an excuse to put more observation posts from the Pacific Ocean. Or do you think that the United States will not receive information from them?

    Well done, "samurai"! Hiroshima-Nagasaki is not enough for them ... You don’t even need to spend ICBMs on these "neighbors", here our Iskaders will get it.

    Trump joyfully rubs his little hands ... This is how much they will write off their debts (over 1 trillion Baku invested by the Japanese in US assets)

    It’s not at all clear - did the Japanese forgive Hiroshima and Nagasaki? Or revenge "must be sustained"? In the place of the Japanese, I would have scoffed at these ovs, but oh they still lick something to them .......

    Pindostan in his repertoire: “cover your ass with a stranger’s body”.

    What I like about such posts is power, the desire to break mattresses like a Tuzik heating pad.

    True, after such repeated comments on different resources and by different people, our Foreign Minister has to explain to his overseas colleagues that they are wrong, that Russia does not violate the provisions of the INF Treaty ..

    But at the same time, it is clear to the people of America that it is impossible to deal with Russians, that an agreement with them is not worth it, and the paper on which they are written and the insidious Russians always deceive.

    As an example, they’ll cite an article by a journalist from an unknown newspaper with a representative of the headquarters of the Far Eastern District, who said in an interview with a journalist that Russia would not need to use ICBMs against Japan in case of a conflict, it’s enough to use Iskanders (this is relative to your phrase, dear Piramidon )

    And do not care for all readers of this newspaper (if it has readers at all) that the unnamed representative of the Far East Military District headquarters in the rank of captain is neither the captain of the Russian Armed Forces, and the user on the Military Review resource with this rank. But at the same time, a silkworm from a newspaper will add. That considering that the closest Iskander brigade is the 20th brigade in Ussuriysk, and at least 900 km from Ussuriysk to Tokyo, there is a violation by Russia of the INF Treaty. The Russian Iskander’s turn out to fly 900 km, which is a direct violation of the INF Treaty.

    And Lavrov will have to prove (assert) that all this is a lie. And other publications, in the same Japan, will reprint this note, while the Japanese edition will be reprinted by the Americans from their central publications. And that’s all. A public opinion is forming about non-contracting Russians who violate all treaties.

    Here is the price of such statements, for which Lavrov has to puff. In intelligence, this technique (reprint from foreign publications in order to give weight and hide the original source) is called "Precipitation." THAT is such statements and serve for such "Precipitation"

    They choose the lesser of two evils. Less is now for them Americans than North Koreans. And forgiven or not Hiroshima - the older generation most likely not. Young - and you are sure that it knows that the Americans delivered the atomic strike, not the Russians
    Indeed, many times repeated lies begin to believe more than the truth.

    Nda. There is still no long-range missile at the S-400, and some here already begin to talk about the structure of the complex that does not yet exist and has not passed the test. And most importantly, how much will be and what in 2020
