Tokyo will include in the military program the creation of an aircraft carrier

44
The Japanese government intends to include in the new medium-term weapons program a clause on the creation of the country's first aircraft carrier, the publication said Yomiuri.




The program must be accepted before the end of the year. The aircraft carrier is supposed to be created by upgrading the Izumo helicopter carrier in service with the Navy.

In the future, the ship is planned to equip the American F-35B fighter with a short take-off and vertical landing. It is reported that on board the ship can accommodate up to 10 such machines.

According to the newspaper, the government should lay the necessary funds in the military budget for 2019 year. Commissioning of the first light aircraft carrier is scheduled for 2020 year. The official confirmation of this information edition does not have.

Such plans have been reported previously. So in 2017, the Japanese media wrote that during the modernization of the helicopter carrier, the working deck would be reinforced with heat-resistant material capable of withstanding the stresses of aircraft engines. It was also planned to equip the Izumo with a springboard for take-off fighters. It was noted that, if necessary, the aircraft will be able to use the US Navy and Marine Corps.

Recall, "Izumo" was adopted by the Japanese Navy in the spring of 2015. Its displacement is 26 thousand tons, length - 248 meters. It is capable of carrying up to 14 helicopters, as well as delivering up to 470 troops to the landing site. Currently composed fleet there are two ships of this class.

      They have nostalgia for the imperial navy. They have long dreamed of aircraft carriers. We started with destroyer aircraft carriers in the 70s and finally decided on an aircraft carrier ..

        But they swore to the torn gum that they would never base anything on these ships except for helicopters.
        So then trust them about the islands. You can’t believe it. No way. hi

          According to the Japanese constitution, a country should not have offensive weapons, including short-range and long-range bombers and launchers.
          With the F-35, they circumvent the ban, explaining that they intend to use them exclusively as fighters (without using missiles?)
          But the aircraft carrier just can not be attributed to defensive weapons. What excuse do you use this time? Like, he won’t leave the dock at all?

            They no longer need excuses. They will change the law before the ships are converted into aircraft carriers. Such is their plan.
            And the military budget will be officially. Not 5 years old, as before, but annual, so it was convenient to build up. hi

        "Competently wringing out" someone else's territory is a purely Russian "know-how". The Japanese are, after all, the East, and they will make it so that Russia in the end will also beg to take these islands. Of course, this will not happen tomorrow, but the Japanese are in no hurry to go anywhere.

          Yeah, the Americans have already been asked to pick them up, and now they will still ask us? belay

          Yes, and we kind of like that too. We have: oil, gas, Arzamas! And Japan has only debts of 200% of GDP, and a small patch of rocks in the sea.

          Russia eventually will also beg pick up these islands

          As a representative of ancient Sumerian civilization, it’s easy for you to find an example when Russia did this ... we are waiting ...
          Of course, this will not happen tomorrow, but so the Japanese are in no hurry

    They (the Japanese) live on the islands somewhere around 100 million so that they are very willing to fight, if they give the islands away, they and half of Sakhalin will want to. From the beginning, a small aircraft carrier, and then, you can’t stop your appetite. hi

    And I said a few months ago that calling Japanese ships of the Izumo class "helicopter destroyers" is like laughing at common sense yes Destroyer the size of "Peter the Great" and even with a through flight deck laughing ! and even then he said that it was rather a light aircraft carrier. And now, when the masks are reset, everything falls into place. A kind of easy upgrade and voila fellow ... Japan receives aircraft carriers yes
    Though small, but aircraft carriers ... With the same success, the Americans can also correct their UDC, so that in case of something they get aircraft carriers that can carry the Fi-35e yes and able to solve their problems in a more economical way (sometimes it is easier for the Papuans to show such an "ersatz" than to drive expensive "nimites")

      Already corrected. The Marines began to use the F-35B before anyone else.

      Watching whose regiment KTOF does not fit into the carrier-wide globalization. There are US aircraft carriers, the PLA Navy in the Pacific. Now the prospect of the appearance of a Japanese aircraft carrier, given the Japanese pace of shipbuilding, was lit up. As part of the KTOF, there is hardly one KPUG. As you know, the opinion of weak fleets is taken into account.

        This is if we compare the number of carrier wings of carrier-based aviation. And if you compare the salvo power of ICBMs with SSBN CTOF?

          If it’s in parrots, it’s even more. A joke. To ensure the main activity of the KTOF SSBN, there is only one MAPL 971A combat project and the 955th SSBN project without the main ammunition. Politically correct, the KTOF is very unbalanced. Even worse than the KSF. Not to mention the other absent forces to provide the SSB KTOF. The weakest start to beat.

    Aircraft carrier ... this is not about defense ... it’s already planning to support troops during operations outside of Japan ... that is, planning aggression ... other considerations ... so no more bows ...
    whom did Japan decide to fight ?? ... with whom does he plan to conduct field battles ... this is of course a big question ... if you look at the surroundings ... it’s just something small ... either in the USA’s tail ... The rest of the neighbors are just different power levels ... it’s better not to climb there)))

    Who would doubt that after Izumo a full-fledged aircraft carrier is a logical step.
