        No, Vitalyevich, the Japanese are being prepared for a fight with the DPRK and the PRC, and of course Russia .. This is another future hotbed of tension, it’s worth throwing a match and the carnage will happen (the Anglo-Saxons are specialists in this matter ..)

    And if such purchases (in terms of volume, not even in amount) were made by our MO (of course, our technology), then the stench would not have turned out. The entire "progressive" (read "regressive") public would scream like a cut-throat that Russia is going to attack ... Stolen, sprat extinctions, pshekia ... Yes, even Burkina Faso. Because Russia is always aggressive, and all the others only smell flowers and all these purchases of japam are needed to observe the cherry blossoms.

    And we (Russia) seem to be gone. It's a shame even. We are the closest to Japan ... Even the islands are common, well, almost common ...

    US government approves Japan's sale of nine E-2 AWACS aircraftD Advanced hawkeye

    The Japanese Self-Defense Forces currently have 13 old E-2 aircraftC Hawkeye

    Explain the humanities, but that the old AWACS and U aircraft could not be upgraded and brought to a new analogue? What the hell is a new airplane to buy?
    It is felt that they do not have the Accounts Chamber and the Committee on Corruption in Parliament ....

      The very fact of the presence of such weapons can cool many exuberant heads. And there are quite a few of them next to the Japanese.

        What kind of heads? Is China (as it was announced) threatening to attack Japan or maybe Korea has gone camping?

          For example, Russia has already once tried to solve its problems with the help of a "small victorious war."
