"Integrated into the US missile defense system": the Japanese Navy has been replenished with a new missile defense destroyer "Haguro"

The Japanese naval forces have been replenished with the latest missile defense destroyer Haguro. The ceremony of handing over the ship took place on March 18, 2021 at the military shipyard in the port of Yokohama. This is reported by Kyodo.


"Haguro" is the second and last ship of the new generation of project 27DDG after the lead destroyer "May", which is armed with SM-3 Block IIA missiles capable of intercepting ballistic targets at altitudes up to 500 km. The new destroyer is equipped with the modernized Aegis combat information management system and will be integrated into the US missile defense system in the region.

Japan's missile defense system today includes two Atago-class destroyers, four Congo-class destroyers and, counting Haguro, two Maya-class destroyers. Of all the ships, only Maya and Haguro received the upgraded Aegis system, the rest of the ships have an earlier version installed.

"Haguro" will be deployed at the Sasebo naval base on the island of Kyushu, facing the Korean Peninsula and China. The Aegis computerized tracking and guidance system installed on the destroyer allows you to instantly receive data on missiles and enemy aircraft, even if they are not yet visible to the ship's radars. According to the Japanese military, this significantly increases the ability to intercept North Korea's Chinese cruise missiles and ballistic missiles.

The new destroyer is 169,9 meters long and 22,2 meters wide. Displacement - 8,2 thousand tons. The destroyer is capable of speeds up to 30 knots. It is a development of a series of Atago-class destroyers equipped with the upgraded Aegis BIUS with SM-3 Block IIA interceptor missiles.

      And with which ship would you like to compare this displacement? Why is it not enough? With "Grigorovich? - 3810t, with the destroyer pr.956? - 6800 / 7500t. With Burke? - 8300 / 9200t. Normal displacement.
      I'd like to receive news of this order about our fleet: "commissioned", "handed over to the fleet", "adopted and ordered a series." And not the order "I will promise now, and then you will calm down."

        Yes, I read it already. Indeed, a full 10250 tons.
        I did not compare it with anyone, just the dimensions are identical to Atago, and the displacement is suspiciously small.
        And what to compare with others ... It remains only to envy the Japanese and Chinese navies. Such ships are being built ... Anyway, it's expensive to see. True, in the case of Japan, all this beauty will be against us ...

          Perhaps the Aegis BIUS is not small in itself: generating capacities are needed, areas for microwave transceivers, and a computing part. In addition, the dimensions of the SM-3 Block IIA are not small: length 6,55m, diameter 53cm. By the way, the maximum range of its flight is 2500 km, and the maximum altitude is declared at 1500 km, so this rocket should get the ballistics. But it's better not to have to check, of course.
          With North Korea close at hand, you will inevitably attend to the need for such missile defense destroyers. It is clear that the Koreans themselves will not be the first to start if they are not bullied, but they do not think in military categories: if there is a threat, we need to answer, we need such ships, at least 9: 3 are on duty, 3 are under repair, 3 are in readiness.

            ---
            1050 km. But this is also doubtful. ICBMs do not fly above 500 km.
            In one of the tests, sm-3 shot down a spoiled satellite flying at an altitude of 250 km.
            Kinetic interception in space on a collision course is a tricky one.
            On average, 50% is the result of the missile defense They expect that each BR will have to shoot
            three consecutive times, at least, from different destroyers.

        Yes, this is a cool air defense cruiser. Not even auxiliary. As far as I remember, in addition to the Aegis, the Japanese ships are equipped with radars designed for early detection of low-flying targets and are specially designed to ensure the protection of American AUGs from Soviet cruise missiles.

      Arming "samurai" ...

      the power of the sm3 rocket is conditionally sufficient (500 km is most likely a lie)
      but its effectiveness raises a lot of questions - so much so that there have already been 2 scandals from the Japanese and Koreans. Unlike the United States, Japan has made real attempts to intercept North Korean missiles and they have failed. the problem is that the missiles are designed for a direct hit, and it is quite difficult to achieve it with such speed parameters. To make a rocket light and satisfying performance characteristics, they sacrificed its shock capabilities.
      Formally, it is capable of intercepting, but the probability ... it is now estimated at around 2-3 percent. Is that very old scuds she can more or less intercept, but also at the level of a patriot, and this is 20-30% The Israelis with an iron dome are not doing well either. Formally, they report about a 60% hit probability, and eyewitnesses also talk about 20-30.
      At the very least, it is reliably known that two-missile launches do not guarantee defeat even at the 40% level.
      So with the weapons of the samurai, not everything is smooth.

          the navy is their main defensive force. like our tanks.
          When China, North Korea, the "aggressor" in the northern territories and the US base are nearby, it would be strange that they would not replenish the fleet. Moreover, the sea is the basis of their survival.
          I have nothing against this ship. I am annoyed by their 2 destroyers - an aircraft carrier and a lurch towards reorganizing the self-defense forces into an attacking army.

        Naturally. North Koreans did not shoot at Japan, but in the ocean far away
        beyond the Japanese islands. Korean MRBMs were launched specially at a very high
        trajectories in space so that they cannot be shot down by the Aegis system.

          the problem is that according to the technical specifications it was declared that they could shoot down.
          and the Japanese, who like to do it by the rules, tried to intercept the missiles coming over them. The results were very disappointing. So much so that they canceled orders for Rayteon for $ 3.5 billion. And the Koreans also said - what for do we need such missiles that do not help, but anger our neighbors?

And in total we have more than 250 shipbuilding facilities, from the Sochi shipyard, which is urgently trying to make 6 taxi boats with a capacity of 20 people to the complex in Severodvinsk.

                      You twist. Initially, it was about nuclear bombing. The Kuril Islands and their affiliation have nothing to do with it.

                      well .. everyone loves us ... the entire Japanese fleet against China, p. Korea and Iran ...

        The japa coastline is only 10000 km smaller than ours. So you should "smear" the case on it.
        But nevertheless, the "shipping company" is serious. And in conjunction with Yuzhkors, Viets and other Southeast Asian people who are dissatisfied with Beijing, they will be able to beat the dishes in the Chinese shop.

        strains the composition of the japanese navy?

        You take it high. The fleet of South Korea already surpasses the Pacific Fleet by several heads. 16 submarines, 9 destroyers (3 of them are referred to as cruisers by some), 17 frigates, 32 corvettes. On the way there are 3 more destroyers / cruisers, several submarines, and a light aircraft carrier is planned.

        Indeed, we need a strong fleet quantitatively in all directions, so we are inferior to Italy ... if Russia were as small as Japan or Italy, then the number of the fleet would be equal.

        The Russian Federation will not dare to use nuclear weapons in the event of non-nuclear combat operations by the enemy. In my opinion, this is obvious. Moreover, the same thing happened in Soviet times, therefore, in addition to nuclear weapons, the Soviet industry was actively saturating the army with non-nuclear weapons.

                Before threatening Japan with shifts of the earth's crust, think about how this threatens the Russian Primorsky Territory, Sakhalin, China, both Koreas and the entire water area of ​​the Sea of ​​Japan. They are very close to Japan. Or are you ready to sacrifice the population of all the listed regions ?!

            In the doctrine, there are only two options for the use of nuclear weapons - either about to launch a nuclear strike, or in the event of a threat to the existence of a state
            Because of the Kuriles, Russia will not collapse, so you can forget about nuclear weapons in such a conflict

    Nominally, the ships seem to be Japanese.
    But they are integrated into the American missile defense system.
    Those. de facto these are American ships, but with a Japanese crew and for Japanese money.
    The Yankees are well settled, well done.

    The question is, who needs war again? Who is striving for world domination again? Who is once again playing off peoples, talking about the "exclusiveness" and the special position of some over others? As they say, look for who benefits from it. The fact remains that it is definitely not profitable for ordinary people.
    The Japanese have forgotten how the Americans dropped atomic bombs on them and how many Japanese then died of leukemia, how they were deprived of their rights for many years after the war, how many troubles and suffering that war brought them. Is it profitable for the Japanese to be at war again? Or is it a people who hopes that the next war will be victorious for them? In this case, the Japanese must be put in their place, reminded and shown what they will receive as a result of such aspirations, if they can preserve themselves as a people at all.

      The Japanese know everything and remember everything, do not fantasize. There is a planned upgrade of weapons. You will not say that when the Russian Federation adopts new equipment, it "shows the aggressive plans of the Russian Federation to seize world domination." Why are the Japanese worse?
