According to the information, the length of the ship is about 250 meters, displacement - more than 40 000 tons. UDC is capable of carrying 1600 marines. His crew is a 1100 man.
The ship was upgraded to accommodate Osprey converters and the newest X-NUMX-generation F-5B fighter jets with a short take-off and vertical landing.
The arrival of Uosp to Japan is "part of the long-term US efforts to deploy the most advanced military assets in the region" against the background of the North Korean threat, the report said.
The television company notes that "dozens of union members gathered in the port in protest against the arrival of the American ship." In their opinion, this step "will only increase tension in the region."
The deployment of the UDC in Japan has already caused concern in Pyongyang, which sees in it the threat of a landing on its coast.
