Japan will build additional destroyers with the Aegis system

8

Japanese Ministry of Defense plans to add to its the fleet two new destroyers with the Aegis combat information and control system. This was reported today by the newspaper "Yomiuri".


According to the newspaper, the Ministry of Defense has already begun preparations for the construction of warships. The decision of Tokyo is connected with the DPRK missile program. Over the past two years, Pyongyang has carried out several launches, including long-range missiles. In addition, according to observers, the appearance of additional destroyers at Tokyo’s disposal will also strengthen the defense of the southern Japanese islands against the background of the growing activity of the Chinese Navy and a sharp territorial dispute with Beijing around Senkaku (Diaoyu) in the East China Sea.

At present, six destroyers equipped with the Aegis system and SM-3 long-range anti-aircraft missiles are in service with the Japanese naval self-defense forces. During the latest missile launches of the DPRK, these ships recorded launch moments, and also had the task to shoot down North Korean missiles in the event of a threat to the country's territory, ITAR-TASS reports.

    The Japanese seriously decided to fight for the islands. They have claims to our islands, the Chinese have claims to the disputed islands, so we have to build up the fleet.

      They have a claim

      Well, this is so far, as soon as they really get their teeth (not even in the face), rhetoric will immediately change. Everyone can bend their fingers under the roof of America, we are seeing a lot of similar things, so we are already used to it. We must remember that Japan is only an instrument of America, so for now we are friends with each other. As the real mess begins, everything will open immediately.

        What exactly will be revealed?
        Dzhaponchi on such a real kukan sit that they can not even think, and even cannot think.

        There is no need to narrow the circle of "intrigued persons".
        "The British Commonwealth", "Mattress", "Frogmen" and Norgi with Golandos are all interested and the list is far from complete.

      The Japanese will never decide this issue by force. Japan needs a peace treaty with Russia in order to maintain neutrality in the event of a conflict with China. A conflict with China is very likely. For this, the destroyers were ordered.

    The Japanese fleet - if it’s about garlic, then the enemy most dangerous for our Pacific Fleet, the Chinese will be torn very quickly by order, and more .... the Japanese have extensive experience in naval battles, the discipline of their sailors is not a couple of Chinese, but a quantitative and qualitative composition both the surface and the Submarine group makes our admirals cautiously and enviously look at the historical enemy and potential enemy! only nuclear weapons are what amuses the pride of our admirals ... sadly.

      on the order of the Chinese, he’ll break very quickly,

      Not a fact, the Japanese fought for a long time - I would say that the Chinese have already caught up with the Japanese. This will not be a battle for you where ship to ship — missiles plus aircraft gouge the Navy of Japan. Do not forget the weapons of the PLA Russian and its thousandths of copies.

      Oh, I do not agree how. We have experience, but times are changing, no one has seriously staged naval battles using modern warships.
      And why the Chinese do not suit you? In the direction of the fleet, China is increasing the rate of growth, quantitatively and qualitatively, and we do not know what and how many shipyards were made for the Chinese Navy, both ours and Chinese. So "it will tear very quickly", this is at least not serious, the ships are not made of paper.
      About our Pacific Fleet, even considering that there are a lot of nuclear submarines and diesel-electric submarines undergoing repair and modernization, with the replacement of equipment and weapons, there are enough forces to restrain the Japanese.
      And if we attribute here long-range aviation, anti-submarine, quite powerful NKs with powerful anti-ship missiles, and ships, including submarines from the Northern Fleet, + modernized submarines, then Japan will have to rely on nuclear weapons, which it basically does not have, but the opportunity to create have it.

      No, he would have torn the PLA in 00's, 05's, but then it all starts debatable. Plus the PLA Navy is growing at an accelerated pace. The Japanese fleet, on the contrary, is shrinking, its core 6 Berkov, also has a good Akizuki and 8-10 relative to modern light destroyers with ESSM. The rest is either with old sparrows or even the ancient vessels of the 80's, which are now actively being removed from the composition or converted into training ones. Another trump card is the submarine fleet.

      The PLA already has its own 6 destroyers with S-300F and a new large-area radar. They also have 15 054 frigates, which are stronger than any destroyer with ESSM or Sparrow.

      Now they are building 052D, and with an unprecedented scale! 1 is already on the GI, 2 is launched and 4 is still being built, and the general series can reach 20 ships. This is actually a miniBerry on 64 cells for missiles and the latest radar-BIUS latest generation.

      054A (4 still being built) is also being replaced by the 054В with better weapons.

      The pace of construction of 056 corvettes is staggering, only from the beginning of the year it was built and transferred or is it being transferred 10 ships!

      Here is a picture of one of the bases of the Eastern PLA fleet. 6 ships on it came in the 2013 year. All of Japan this year did not build 6 warships from the corvette and above.

        all the same, the pace of construction of warships of the Japanese and Chinese is surprising.
