Japanese Navy plans to acquire its own aircraft carrier

37
The Government of Japan, together with military experts, is considering the possibility of creating the country's first aircraft carrier based on the largest available fleet helicopter carrier Izumo, transmits TASS the message of the newspaper Yomiuri.




To this end, it is planned to carry out work "to strengthen the deck with the use of heat-resistant materials that can withstand loads from aircraft engines." Taking off from the deck is expected to be carried out using a springboard, which also needs to be equipped with Izumo.

Funds for the alteration of the helicopter carrier of the Ministry of Defense of Japan should be included in their budget for 2019 year, and the commissioning of the new ship is scheduled for 2020 year.

The defense ministry expects to use the aircraft carrier to protect remote areas, as well as during joint exercises with the United States to provide logistical support.

Also, the ship, if necessary, can be used by American aircraft for refueling.

Earlier it was reported that Tokyo is studying the issue of acquiring American F-35B aircraft with the possibility of short takeoff and vertical landing. According to calculations, the improved helicopter carrier will be able to place up to ten such fighters on deck.

The largest warship in Japan, the Izumo helicopter carrier with a maximum displacement of 26 thousand tons, was accepted into the fleet in the spring of 2015. Its length is 248 meters. He is able to carry up to 14 helicopters, as well as deliver paratroopers to the scene of operations before 470.

        Or maybe it was the other way around? The USA puzzled Japan with the purchase of F-35 and Yapi frantically looking for a floating base? wink

      We Japs on the example of the Mistral showed what can be done with helicopter carriers, and they decided to use it. After all, it was believed that from the Mistral, we wanted to plan light aircraft carriers.

        And what, did we exploit the Mistrals? I don’t remember something like that ... But the F-35 ams put them on their UDCs and gave them a chance to try out the yap ... So they have "worthy" aircraft carrier teachers ... We have such an experience, unfortunately , can’t boast.
        A video of flights of F-35B vertical take-off and landing fighter aircraft of the United States Marine Corps (ILC) from the deck of the LHA-6 America universal landing ship (UDC) was published. Fighter squadron VMFA-121 Green Knights conduct training flights before the upcoming deployment in Japan.

      There is nothing dumber than laughing at China.
      In ten years, China will have 6 aircraft carriers. The last 2 are atomic with catapults.

    Japanese Navy plans to acquire its own aircraft carrier
    As I understand it, the UN ban on the army in Japan has long been poher. An army has long grown out of self-defense forces, which today aircraft carriers already desire. As far as I understand, aircraft carriers are clearly not for defense.

      The UN did not impose any restrictions on the composition and quantity of the Japanese armed forces; the Japanese themselves voluntarily imposed such restrictions. In addition, Kim’s nuclear missiles are also clearly not for self-defense.

    With a new aircraft carrier, an additional area will appear on their island, otherwise they live like sprats in a bank. Closely to them there on the island

        Melnichenko is an honest businessman, he honestly takes Russia's natural resources abroad, honestly pays legal and not very payments. He is a typical oligarch of today's Russia.

    Aircraft carrier offensive weapons. Judging because Japan reconsidered the state of self-defense forces and allowed the use of the army outside the state, we can conclude that the revival of militaristic Japan, which means that Japan is not going to solve issues like the Kuril ridge and other diplomatically.
    just like in the proverb "How many wolves do not feed, but he looks into the forest"

      It is interesting for forum users to dance - when a North Korean fat man conducts nuclear explosions and shoots through Japan with his own missiles - this is the defense of the country's sovereignty, the struggle for peace, rebuffing the aggressor and another damn pancake - damn it. But with respect to Japan, this is not covered aggression and nothing more !! Well, it’s also impossible, dear fellow forum users !! From your such assessments of the actions of different countries for a mile away it bears double standards in which you always blame this "damned West!" wassat

    Japan had both destroyers and armadillos and aircraft carriers, and not so long ago, they remembered. And there were two atomic bombs in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and after that there was a rejection of the offensive doctrine, only self-sufficient defense.
    Is there a memory problem?
    Or again from the states prompt?
    So after all, the story develops in a spiral, then it ended badly, now it can simply END.

    Why do they need an aircraft carrier. Who do they want to scare? Want to revive an empire? It’s ridiculous.

    Logically, due to geography, the fleet is a priority for them. I wonder what kind of aircraft they will place on the aircraft carrier with a springboard? For the F-35B, it is not needed. F / A-18 to procure
