In Tokyo, told where to place the US missile defense system

30
The head of the Japanese Defense Ministry, Itsunori Onodera, announced that two Aegis Ashore ground-based missile defense complexes will be located at opposite ends of Honshu Island: in Akita Prefecture (in the north) and in Yamaguchi Prefecture (in the south-west), reports TASS.




These two areas will be candidates for the deployment of complexes,
said the minister at a press conference.

These prefectures were previously called experts, as the most suitable for deploying missile defense installations. However, officials have so far avoided talking about it openly.

According to the Ministry of Defense, two such complexes will be enough to cover the entire territory of the country from a ballistic missile strike. The main threat, according to the military, remains North Korea, however, the Aegis Ashore can also be used to protect against long-range cruise missiles, including Chinese.

Initially, the placement of installations was planned to be completed by the 2023 year, but the process of their deployment can be accelerated at the insistence of the Japanese side.

Recall that each Aegis Ashore complex will cost the Japanese budget approximately 100 billion yen (about $ 917 million).

    The Japanese are not masters even in their own country, and in general, Japan is nominally Japanese, and so the United States rule rules there. And they’ll put the base where the Yankees point!

      So they need islands in the "disputed territories" to become masters.

        Here is an indicative combination of USA + DPRK affects the Japanese - missile defense can be put at least in Tokyo on the main street ... As well as the South Koreans .... bully The union of the USA and the DPRK (a peculiar, but nevertheless alliance) is very effective! good

        After intimidation and the deployment of missile defense ("in response to intimidation") - the DPRK curtailed its nuclear program (until next time!) tongue

          Somehow the Japanese do not take into account that in English “friend”, “rude”, “hypocrite”, “hauler” and “big failure” can be denoted in one word - mucker
          Language is a reflection of the nation.

              You can call your close friends by any nicknames.
              That's just in the dictionary "moron" has nothing to do with "friend".

      Until Yapi withdraw American bases from Japan, they can’t see them smoking! The document that was signed in the Kuril Islands (Soviet-Japanese Declaration (1956)) states that we can transfer 2 islands after signing the peace treaty, but there are provisions (like Minsk agreements) that clearly indicate the step-by-step actions of Japan - 1- The withdrawal of all American soldiers and liquidation of their bases !!

        Tiksi-3 for any Kuril can not be seen, because right there on the islands will be an American military base with nuclear weapons! So let the new islands be poured onto themselves, or let the Chinese be paid, they will do everything faster, and the islands will be poured, and Tokyo will be razed to the ground along the way.

          I think the same thing, BUT ..... would you believe in the 70s that the Turks would bring down our plane and they won’t have anything for it? ... so time will tell, but it’s necessary by the Far East and the Kuril Islands to strengthen and first of all Pacific Fleet !!!

    Japan is the US bridgehead in the military confrontation with Russia. The mattresses all do not abandon the thought of the Anaconda ring and slowly and methodically build bases along the perimeter of our borders with radar, missile defense and deploy their military contingent.
    What kind of Soviet general could have dreamed of in a terrible dream?

        And who is talking about erasing? There is a question about what we do in response. For example ... the USSR, when the United States deployed missiles in Turkey, delivered its missiles in Cuba. It was a symmetrical answer.
        I’m interested in what the USA would say if, say, our missile defense elements and the military contingent appeared in Mexico.

    North Korea seems to be phasing out nuclear activities, is it really to protect against Iran?

    All the worse for Japan, they won’t save from Russian missiles, but the fact that nuclear missiles will be additionally targeted is a fact. Looking for problems ...

    What will they pack? Standard Missile 3 or cruise missile?

      What will they pack? Standard Missile 3 or cruise missile?

      hi ... Currently, the main ammunition of the Aegis BMD systems in two variants of basing is the RIM-161C SM-3 Block IB anti-missile. This product is equipped with a dual-band infrared homing head and intercepts the target using a special kinetic combat stage. Developing a flight speed of up to 3 km / s, such a missile is capable of hitting a target at ranges of up to 700 km.
      In the foreseeable future, the SM-3 Block IIA missile, which is characterized by higher characteristics, will have to enter service. Through the use of a new power plant, such an ammunition will have to reach speeds of 4-4,5 km / s.
      ... The basis of the Aegis Ashore project is a simple idea that allows you to organize missile defense of a given area without the need to develop completely new systems. It consists in the placement of equipment, originally developed for ships, in the corresponding land facilities. For example, to accommodate a radar station, a multi-story building should be built that looks similar to the superstructure of ships of the Ticonderoga and Arleigh Burke projects. At a certain distance from the radar and the command post, a “box” should be built to accommodate the vertical anti-missile launcher.
      The main means of destroying enemy ballistic missiles in the Aegis Ashor complex are SM-3 interceptor missiles. This weapon, originally created for ships with missile defense functions, along with other equipment was adapted for operation on land. Like the original ship complex, the land system is capable of using all existing SM-3 missiles, regardless of their modification ...

    Japan is so small that Korean missiles flew by without stopping.
    Japan decided to forcibly stop them, over its territory.
