Japan is considering deploying ground-based missiles with a range of up to 3 kilometers

Japan intends to deploy new ground-based missiles with a range of up to 3 kilometers to protect "remote territories". According to The Mainichi newspaper, today the military is considering three potential deployment sites.


The Japanese authorities are solving the issue of deploying long-range missiles, not only the location of missiles, but also the issue of their potential is on the agenda. Tokyo decides whether to place purely defensive missiles to protect its territories, or not be limited to this and deploy installations to strike at the territory of a potential enemy, and these are all the countries surrounding Japan, including Russia.

Preliminarily, the southwestern Nansei Islands are considered as missile deployment areas, where Japan is waging a territorial dispute with China over the Senkaku (Diaoyu) Islands, the vicinity of Mount Fuji and the island of Hokkaido, the closest to Russia. In Hokkaido, the first missiles with a range of up to 3 km should appear already in the mid-30s.

The Japanese are planning to deploy missiles of their own design, so the timing depends on the completion of work and the start of mass production of missiles. According to available information, Tokyo is planning to modernize Type-12 missiles to strike at the territory of a potential enemy. As part of the ongoing work, it is planned to increase the range of destruction from several hundred kilometers to more than 1, as well as develop new ones with a range of up to 3. The upgraded missiles should enter service in 2024.

In total, Tokyo plans to adopt about 1 long-range cruise missiles against the backdrop of a "deteriorating security situation in the region." Japan's military plans and rising military spending have recently caused concern among neighboring countries.

      What a dream... the harrakiri is coming to them in 2024... the emperor has been waiting.
      And so, despite the large fleet of the Japanese Self-Defense Forces, Japan is still very vulnerable to the modern weapons of Eun, China and Russia.

    Well, well, it means that soon we will have such missiles. While the contract is tacitly observed, but when it ends.

      It is possible to continue to comply with the INF Treaty: "This is not against Europe and the United States, this is exclusively against Japan and Micronesia!" wink
      The main thing is not to forget to fasten mobile launchers to the IRBM, preferably air transport! smile

    Tell me, what is the sacred meaning of deploying long-range missiles on the border? So that air defense would shoot them down at launch? laughing

      Conventional air defense will not bring down, you need "specialized", and there are generally few such systems in life. And I still strongly suspect that if an air defense missile can shoot down a missile "towards", then this does not mean that it can shoot down "in pursuit".

    Why are the Americans silent, and ours as well? We signed an agreement with America, such as from 500 to 5 is prohibited, but the Japanese do not care ... for such an agreement?

      You are absolutely right about the Japanese (as well as the Chinese, Koreans, Israelis, Europeans and ~ 150 other states). We concluded an agreement with the United States, and, by the way, the United States "withdrew from it unilaterally", so now we have an agreement between the USSR and Russia wassat

      The contract has long since been cancelled.
      And it never extended to the allies, with the exception, of course, of the missile technology limitation regime.

        From Rostov-on-Don to Lvov in a straight line is only 1200 km. So, is it already possible?

    as well as develop new ones with a range of up to 3 thousand.

    Got permission? What territories does Japan have at a distance of 3 km?
    It's time for Russia to finally decide on the "partnership" and "alliance" of Japan. By the way, I hope the "samurai" buy oil and gas for rubles?

        From the one who determined this country's self-defense forces, and not full-fledged armed forces.

          No one determined, this is their own internal decision. They themselves determine what is self-defense and what is full-fledged armed forces. As with aircraft carriers, for example.

            Nobody defined

            Formed in 1954 from the National Security Forces created two years earlier (Japanese 保安 анта hoantai). The main task of the Self-Defense Forces is to defend the state, protect the freedoms and independence of Japan. The ninth article of the Japanese Constitution severely limits the military activities of the Self-Defense Forces, not directly related to the country's defense.
            After the defeat in World War II, the Imperial Japanese Army, which supported the Nazi forces of Germany, was disbanded, and military factories and educational institutions were closed. Occupation authorities banned even martial arts. A ban on the manufacture of Japanese swords was also established, which lasted until 1953. In May 1947, the Constitution of Japan was adopted, which legally enshrined Japan's refusal to participate in military conflicts.

              Japanese constitution adopted

              Which is an intra-Japanese document. As they want, they interpret it or even change it as they see fit.
              Unlike an international agreement.
              the fact that during the occupation (from 1945 to 1952) something was forbidden there, it was a long time ago

    So Japan, in violation of international agreements, becomes an aggressor and a member of military blocs.
    We don't hear the indignation of the United States and the United Nations about this.

        According to the Japanese constitution, adopted in 1947, after World War II, Japan is prohibited from having its own army in the country and sending self-defense forces abroad. Article 9 of the country's constitution states that "the Japanese people forever renounce war as the sovereign right of the nation, and the threat or use of armed force as a means of settling international disputes."
        Recorded at the insistence of the USA.
        Something like that.

          According to the Japanese constitution...

          The Japanese constitution is not an international document, but an internal affair of Japan. And how to interpret or change it is also purely their internal affair.
          In 2015, they passed a law on the right to self-defense outside of Japan and can now send troops outside the country.
          No international agreements limit them in this.

    It is quite obvious that an arms race is taking place in which we are already falling behind, and in the future we will fall even further behind. Our only weapon that still holds back the enemy is our strategic nuclear forces. But over time, the West has the latest means of interception, which will be able to more or less reliably intercept the missiles launched by us. And then nothing will save us.

    All this means that in this situation we cannot relax and wait for "our guys to come up with something else." If we don’t prove right now to the West and the rest of the world our right to a place under the sun, then tomorrow no one will stand on ceremony with us, but will simply be ground to powder.
