Japan received two AWACS E-2D Advanced Hawkeye

The naval forces of Japan were replenished with two modernized deck-based aircraft for early warning and control (AWACS) E-2D Advanced Hawkeye. It is reported by Naval News.


Aircraft were delivered in the first ten days of March, both sides landed at the Iwakuni Marine Corps, and after several test flights went to Misawa Air Base in Aomori Prefecture in northern Japan. The 601th squadron, which has E-2D aircraft in service, is based at the airbase.

The first E-2D was transferred to Japan in March 2019. Thus, the Japanese Navy currently has three E-2D Advanced Hawkeye AWACS aircraft, the first of which is located in the United States, where it is used to train pilots.

In total, Japan ordered the delivery of nine DRLO E-2D Advanced Hawkeye aircraft in the amount of $ 3,14 billion. It is stated that the AWACS aircraft received from the United States will be used in conjunction with the F-35 to counter the increased power of China and North Korea.

The Japanese Self-Defense Forces currently have 13 old E-2C Hawkeye aircraft and four modern E-767s. The signed contract provides for the first delivery of four E-2D in the amount of $ 633 million. Also, under the signed contract, the United States will supply Japan with 28 turboprop engines T56-A-427A engines (18 on airplanes and 10 additional), 10 APY-9 radars (9 on airplanes and one additional) and other related equipment.

    But why, with whom are you going to fight? Indeed, on occasion, in the place of Japan the sea will be, why should they seek adventure.

      It would be like then, and we have "new straits" will appear with large funnels in place of cities. Why would they need AWACS to watch over us, for the Chinese, for the Koreans along the way, telling the USA. Quite logical purchase on their part as a whole.

        Japan mom, but how many cross-eyed defenders are here, it’s amazing. Do not judge by their auto industry, it will happen if, if possible, they won’t stick with you, they will cut off their heads and don’t ask their names, or have they forgotten the story? Samurai and their descendants did not go anywhere, only they wait time.

          You should not be so, because you are not right in: "cross-eyed defenders." I just stated a fact and no more, you understand that if such a situation occurs where instead of Japan the sea becomes, it means from the Russian Federation - like the United States, little remains, and from the whole civilization. I do not belittle our capabilities, but also adequately assess the capabilities of the "partners".

        No, it’s easy to live independently and independently, having driven the Yankees out of the country .. I think we (China, North Korea, etc.) would agree with Japan on mutually beneficial cooperation in a peaceful and constructive way .. Is that so?

          When did US bases in their territories (which were bombed by nuclear weapons) and one hundred thousand in only one city immediately destroy them?

          The Japanese are well aware that they themselves are to blame for the bombing, it was the Japanese who attacked the States.
          And the military bases are dumbfounded by the locals, this is not a secret, but they are tin as the government needs. The same China does not scramble on Japan, while there are US bases.

          No, just living independently and independently, having driven the Yankees out of the country ..

          This is stupid, at least. Yapi from the USA have financial, technological, political and military support.
          Which one will refuse it? If you refuse this, then this is no longer an “honor”, ​​it is a diagnosis!

          I think we (China, DPRK, etc.) would have agreed with Japan on mutually beneficial cooperation in a peaceful and constructive way .. Is that so?

          Quite possible. But with the United States, the benefits are far greater.

          It is doubtful. Although, I just put on a video from the Soviet "Elegia" of the 1987th year of production on the Japanese Technics of 1997. It worked fine, narrow-eyed.

    Such aircraft are good for controlling space in peacetime, for war with terrorists and against a frankly weak enemy. And in a war against a country that has intercontinental missiles, simply the places where these planes are based will be quickly swept away, and then the batch will go, as they say, with swords and pistols.

      If a global war, then in general everything can go according to a different scenario.
      If the incident is in the classic version, various measures will be taken, incl. dispersal over spare bases and much more.

    That's right, reconnaissance and reconnaissance again.
    Without operational, reliable information, there was always no way. And at the current speeds of movement, there are a lot of things, without reconnaissance, nowhere.

    I would like to ask our military-industrial complex, at the expense of our lightweight AWACS aircraft. When will the Shee begin to produce such aircraft, after all, they even planned to build an aircraft carrier, and without such vehicles the AUG is not complete, in fact, just an airfield at sea

      it is not E2C
      This is the latest multi-purpose E2D with new features.
      Improvements to the APY-9 compared to the E-2C radar (AN / APS-145):
      -Enhanced detection range including cruise missiles
      -Increased probability of detecting air targets above sea and land
      -Objects on the surface of the earth are tracked from the radio horizon
      -General interference reduction
      - Improved tracking accuracy of maneuvering targets
      Representatives of Northrop Grumman emphasized that great efforts have been put into increasing the detection range of cruise missiles both above the sea and over land. This was one of the requirements of the U.S. Navy.

      Three modes for operators, depending on the situation.

      AAS (Advanced AEW Surveillance): Advanced radar surveillance. Provides uniform circular coverage with tracking of air and surface targets.

      ESS (Enhanced Sector Scan): Combines traditional mechanical scanning with electronic beam control when targets are detected in specified sectors.

      ETS (Enhanced Tracking Sector): Purely electronic scanning, the field of view is geographically stabilized, this mode provides an increased probability of detection and quality of tracking in the selected sector. No track loss during antenna rotation.

    The Japanese Self-Defense Forces currently have 13 old E-2C Hawkeye aircraft and four modern E-767
    plus another pair of E-2D Advanced Hawkeye. Total - 19 boards. Microscopic Japan in terms of the number of AWACS aircraft overtook Russia (18 boards, 14 A-50 and 4 A-50U)

      firstly, there’s something ready-made, and not “about ten years from now” (remember how the British flew past the brand new Hokkai E-2C, trying to give birth to their own AWACS aircraft - as a result, they remained with their noses, exploiting the ancient Shackleton right up to 1991. And almost fell in love with the Falklands, including due to the lack of AWACS)
      secondly, NATO standards
