Japan will buy anti-missiles from the US amid their failed tests

38
The director of the missile defense agency of the main US military department, Gary Pennett, reported on the progress of the implementation of the American interceptor missiles in Japan. According to Pennett, the recent failed test "should not affect" the delivery of antimissiles to the Japanese self-defense forces.


The question of whether something changed in agreements with Tokyo after the American interceptor missile missed the target without harming it, was asked by journalists during a briefing. A Pentagon spokesman confirmed the information that the Aegis missile defense system’s tests had ended in failure at the moment, but in the agreements with Japan “this has not changed anything.”

Thus, it can be stated that Japan acquires anti-missile systems from the United States, which did not really show themselves even during standard tests to intercept various types of targets in the United States itself. Tests, by the way, were carried out in the area of ​​the Hawaiian Islands.

Japan will buy anti-missiles from the US amid their failed tests


Tokyo is planning to spend a considerable amount of approximately 133 million dollars on the implementation of the contract with the United States. For these funds, the Japanese will receive missiles SM-3 Block IIA and launchers Mk-29. In addition, it is known that American military specialists will be engaged in servicing the missile defense system in Japan.

      This purchase allows you to circumvent the INF Treaty. The installation is probably universal, and Tomogak is installed on it.
      So the United States is not going to defend Japan, but is going to bomb it. Spend 2500 km from Japan - this is the radius of attack.

        Of course, such an installation adds another goal to the Russian Defense Ministry on the map of Japan. And the INF Treaty has been violated so many times by the Americans that it doesn’t do more weather at once

          Do you think that after the HYDROBON BOMBS of North Korea, something will remain as targets? The Koreans will not be the first to attack, but they will strike back, albeit posthumously

            Do not dramatize wink The USA, with all its egoism and spit on others, will not agree to such a development of the situation.

              Everything goes to this.
              They had two serious competitors - United Europe and China. Russia, with all its important political significance, the USA is not a competitor, the volume of production is too small.
              They managed to weaken Europe, flooding with refugees. China's next turn. They will not attack directly, but refugee tactics have proven effective. So what a war to be. 19th or 20th year North Korea, 21st or 22nd Iran

                  You’ll run from radiation anywhere. And from the DPRK there is nowhere else to run, except to China. The south will also become radioactive. From South Korea, too, will run to China, by boat

      According to Pennett, recent unsuccessful trials “should not affect the delivery of anti-missile missiles to Japanese self-defense forces

      Of course, they should not, how can a slave be against the will of his master. request

    Three arguments speak in favor of this: first, they put their "missile defense" on the security of the Japanese of the United States ever since they learned about the existence of Japan and did not remove it; secondly, it is necessary to squander the suckers or their vassals (equivalent to the suckers) of the victim of an unsuccessful project and recapture the mani spent on it; the third - an excellent occasion - to "protect" Japan from the threat of the DPRK. Well, everything just coincided perfectly.

    The settings for these missiles are important, not the missiles themselves. The installations are universal, for 5 minutes the tomahawks are screwed onto them.

      Everyone is so focused on these "universal installations" as if the matars and so there is nothing to launch the tomahawks from hundreds of. fool They seemed to be going to either "Virginia" or another nuclear submarine from the "Balistica" just to remake the tomahawks and fit them there for a total of 128 pieces. belay So what’s the problem this and that way mattresses can keep one or two boats off duty in Japan and have two hundred tomahawks on hand.

    Japan does not buy missiles from the United States, but military and political cover, and it’s not important to transfer money specifically for what.

    Aegis - not a 100% umbrella, but some kind of protection along with the TAAAD
    gives. Nothing is better anyway.
    The Japanese did the right thing. You have to have your own cities
    protect, even if the defense is imperfect.
    An example is Moscow. Her missile defense is a "dead poultice." But better than nothing.
    Something will bring down.

        You did not understand my post. I say that bad missile defense is better than none.
        No one has a reliable missile defense yet: neither the United States, nor Israel, nor Russia.
        But this does not mean that missile defense is not needed.
        This applies to both Japan and Moscow.

          If you put it this way, then yes
          But you specifically, derogatoryly, spoke out against the Moscow missile defense.
          Although neither I, nor you, and even those close to this issue, can know who has which capital is more protected. So far, history knows only the results of the defense of Moscow, London and Berlin. (not taking into account: Pyongyang, Belgrade, Baghdad,
          etc ) hi
