The Japanese edition of Asahi Shimbun writes about the modernization of the anti-ballistic system in the metropolitan region of the country. It was announced that the modernized PAC-3 MSE interceptor missiles will be deployed on the territory of the complex of the Ministry of Defense facilities. We are talking about deploying a missile defense system based on Patriot systems in the Tokyo area of ​​Ichigaya.

It is noteworthy that the PAC-3 MSE was deployed in central Tokyo after the decision of the country's authorities to abandon the deployment of Aegis Ashore missile defense systems.

The PAC-3 MSE missiles are manufactured in the United States by Lockheed Martin. These missiles were developed in 2014 on the basis of the previous version - PAC-3. It differs from the earlier version in increased range, updated targeting system, greater engine power. According to the latest information, the PAC-3 MSE of the Patriot complex is capable of hitting missiles at an altitude of up to 20 thousand meters, the interception radius is about 32 km.

The PAC-3 MSE anti-missiles located on the territory of the Japanese Ministry of Defense complex are designed primarily to intercept ballistic missiles that approach their target - at the final stage of the trajectory after leaving space.
The new PAC-3 MSE was the first of its kind in the center of the Japanese capital.

The PAC-3 MSE missiles are the second line of defense after the SM-3 missiles deployed on Aegis SDF class destroyers. The third line of defense was supposed to be the Aegis Ashore missiles, but the Japanese authorities refused to deploy them some time ago, citing the high cost and opposition protests.

      For Russia, there are no disputed islands. There are territories on which lapas lick.

        The connection is that missile defense can be used and not only for defense.

          So what? Mk41 and the fleet is enough to shoot with "Axes". Why should they shoot Axes from the center of the capital? You did mean the unification of TPK / PU, right?
          And again, where does the Kuril Islands?

            Russia will consider these actions of Japan as unfriendly. And the Russian leadership does not behave when Japanese officials visit Japanese territory like the Japanese government, when the Japanese raise turbidity due to certain actions of Russia in the Kuril Islands ..

              What are these, enhanced missile defense?
              Well, if we are going to attack Japan, then this is logical.

              And the Russian leadership does not behave when Japanese officials visit Japanese territory like the Japanese government, when the Japanese raise turbidity due to certain actions of Russia in the Kuril Islands ..

              This has nothing to do with the PAC-3 MSE. And how do you know that we allow ourselves, and what are the Japanese? All that is needed will be discussed behind closed doors, and the rest can be sent to the press. Well, they say, the Prime Minister is like this, said this and so on.
              Diplomacy is a pretty nasty thing.

                If you listen to the statements of Western leaders and their Ukrainian singers, then Russia is ready to attack anyone any day. However, everything pulls with this affair and pulls. It accumulates forces in order to immediately attack all together.

                The Japanese, as they were at the beck and call of the United States, continue to do so, and this obviously will not improve relations between Russia and Japan. I don’t argue about closed doors. However, screams of discontent with Russia from the Japanese islands are almost always heard in the open.

                  I do not think that Japan is so worried about improving relations with Russia. What can we give to Japan? Nothing.
                  And Japan has an allied relationship with the United States, even friendly ones.

                  However, screams of discontent with Russia from the Japanese islands are almost always heard in the open.

                    Good reason. But the decision of Russia regarding the islands is for the better for the Japanese, this clearly will not improve.

                    What can we give to Japan? Nothing.


                    In the worst case, they can give Japan a snot. To not be forgotten.

                    And Japan has an allied relationship with the United States, even friendly ones.


                    This is the relationship of the slaves and the owners of these slaves, but not as friends. By the least measure in Germany in recent 30 years, Americans have not acted so impudently with the local population as this happens from time to time. Especially in Okinawa.

                    Game to the public.


                    And here I do not argue. Just the point of this game to the public? Is it just one more time to remind yourself.

                      Well, it is unlikely that we will give the islands back to Japan if they are not armed.

                      In the worst case, they can give Japan a snot. To not be forgotten.

                      So Japan can give us a snot. And Japan also has a big and strong friend.

                        In German news, the actions of the police in the USA are clearly not approved and the presentation of this news is not much different from the Russian media. Germans may not pay attention to many little things, but not in such cases. And what happens, the Germans say about this, it’s even more interesting. Not all Germans are crazy about the USA.

                        The fact that there are people who do not like Americans, then there is nothing surprising. There are groups of people who do not like us - Russians, Tatars, Germans, British or Jews. Nothing new.
