For the first time in stories Japanese fleet the representative of the fair sex took command of a group of warships. We are talking about the captain of the 1st rank of the Japanese Navy Ryoko Azume. She took office at the naval base in Yokosuka. It is known that the captain of the 1st rank Ryoko Azume is 44 years old, and from now on she will command a group of 4 ships of the country's Navy.


Among the four ships - the largest Japanese helicopter "Izumo".

Earlier, Military Review reported that Japan planned to conduct a deep modernization of Izumo so that it could receive F-35B aircraft (American deck fighters aviation with short take-off and vertical landing).

For the first time in Japan, a woman was appointed commander of a naval navy group.


On ships that came under the command of Ryouko Azume, more than a thousand people serve.

It should be noted that Ryouko Azuma is also the first woman in Japan to become a commander of a warship.

Earlier in Japan, women began to be allowed to serve in the country's air force.

Ryouko Azuma herself stated that being a naval officer was her dream from early childhood.

        Initially, geishas were men. And now there are, moreover, some of the highest paid

    Interesting girls are dancing! In Europe, aunts have long been defense ministers and a Japanese woman there too!

      By the way, an interesting trend. Maybe the psychotests showed that the female gender does not hesitate to execute orders, that is, it is more convenient for starting a war? I do not think that the point is only emancipation.

      Aunts in Europe are civilian politicians at the head of defense ministries who do not directly command troops. And in Japan, a female soldier at the head of a military unit. Big difference.

    Well, like the Japanese were not seen in some kind of thoughtless following the trends of the struggle for gender equality and other feminist suitors (as in the same America). So, perhaps this lady took the position quite reasonably and deservedly. request

    Did the Americans approve, or is this Japanese initiative that the colony has not yet reported to the owner?

    The woman on the ship is a bad omen, although it is more convenient to carry out orders even for stupid ones, she will be afraid to hit the men in the mud with her face. Yes, and how much is now deciding the identity of the commander.

      The woman on the ship is a bad omen.

      According to Japanese media reports, on February 29, 2016 in Yokosuka, Commander Miho Otani took charge of the squadron destroyer of the Naval Self-Defense Forces of Japan DD 152 Yamagiri (of the Asagiri type, in service since 1989). 44-year-old Miho Otani became the first female commander of a destroyer (and, in general, a warship of the main classes) in the history of the Japanese fleet. love
      It is reported that in the command of Miho Otani, the crew of the Yamagiri destroyer of 220 people are ten more women. For them, the ship has separate cubicles and latches. In total, the Naval Self-Defense Forces of Japan have about 2400 female military personnel (out of the total number of the Navy, about 42 thousand military personnel).

    For the first time in the history of the Japanese fleet, the representative of the fair sex took command of a group of warships.

    In Europe, all the "presidents" of women, in Japan, were entrusted with commanding a group of ships - the States are doing the right thing - it’s easier to manage women)) - after all, all these countries once occupied the striped)))

    Now, with the report on the bridge, "Captain, we have to flow!" the captain may hang slightly for a few seconds due to the uncertainty of the situation ...
    And, whatever one may say, this is the first case in Japan when a whole "group of warships" gets a hole above the waterline.

      Oooo ... With this I would not spoil even after a very long autonomy. Miho Otani is clearly more sympathetic. Although, on the other hand, it’s still better than a stern male friendship, no matter how you twist it)))
      In general, if there is a choice between Izumo and Yamagiri, I personally am a destroyer.

    Yes, they have many women in officer positions ... Destroyer 3519 Yamayuki is commanded by Captain 2nd Rank Mariko Tezuka, the name speaks for itself. In the photo, the second from the right

    Here are both destroyers of the 1st training division 3519 Yamayuki and 3815 Setoyuki depart from the wall in Shimonoseki. Pay attention to how many women are in the team ... To understand who is who - only officers and midshipmen wear shoulder straps (one thin strip), sleeve insignia gold on a black background - foremen, red on black sleeve insignia - sailors ...

    Here is this woman with the epaulettes of a captain of the 2nd rank - senior officer 3815 "Setoyuki" ... I noticed that she always moors the ship and monitors its departure from the wall. He can smile in the video :)))



    Well, here's a video of the departure of both destroyers after the flag-raising ceremony.
