Another American ship with a missile defense system arrived in Japan

35
The American destroyer Benfold with the Aegis missile system arrived at the Japanese port of Yokosuka. This is the second of three ships with missile defense systems, which are planned to be deployed in Japan, reports RIA News message agency "Kyodo".




According to the publication, "Benfold missile destroyer (USS Benfold), whose length is 153,9 meters, arrived in Japan to balance the US forces in Asia for possible counteraction against China and North Korea." The agency notes that by the US Navy 2020 g will mark out about half of their ships in this region.

In June, the modernized cruiser Chancellorzvil, which also had a missile defense system on board, entered the port of Yokosuka.

As previously reported, Japan will take part in the creation of the Aegis PRO system by supplying advanced software to the USA. It was noted that the new program will allow ships to "share information about multiple targets - ships, aircraft, ballistic flights, as well as anti-ship missiles."

To date, the Japanese fleet has four of its own ships with the Aegis complexes. However, while they are vulnerable, as they recognize only those goals that they discover themselves. New software should eliminate this shortcoming.

          What genius of literature wrote this? The destroyers are armed with missiles, cannons, machine guns at worst, but not Aegis. Aegis is a control system, BIUS in our opinion.

            Yeah, somehow from the very beginning the article didn't work: "The American destroyer Benfold with the Aegis missile system."
            There is no such missile system - "Aegis". There is a control system with that name. And it has been there for a long time.

            Then you just lose interest in the article.

        The nation's degradation is fantastic. For seventy years have changed "Banzai!" on yaoi and hentai.
        Non-independent occupied state. The pedos are in Japan and behave accordingly - a hundred rapes a year that are not investigated. We put the missile defense now. Which only knocks down the INF. And against ICBMs and supersonic anti-ship missiles. But the Russian army will take them on a pencil and aim some hydrogen at everyone - about everyone. Well, whore they come with foam in hatred, and the rest that do not understand that they are voluntarily targets?

    Our military locals say that soon there will be a war, but with whom it is silent. From the fact that constantly flashes on the news feeds immediately come to mind the invasion of Ukraine in the Crimea, or the invasion of Islamists in Tajikistan.

    And where is their great Japanese spirit, Yamato, a samurai code of honor that prevents him from living if his honor is disgraced? The Americans have lowered them below the plinth; they even have those positions that are not even in the Kama Sutra. A country with a millennium of civilization and culture has turned into an economically rich, but lost its roots and dignity territory, after Japan signed the act of surrender, and became a country nominally independent from the states. Since then, such a thing as: - The Code of Honor has become nothing more than insignificant words.
    God bless the independence of Japan ...

    Hmm .... their proud ancestors of the samurai, the zealous followers of the Bushido code in the graves turn over from such slavish behavior of their descendants. But Japanese soldiers were among the three most valiant armies, Russian Germans were among them, and the Yapis were right after us, occupying the second line. Where is it now, where are the Japs? The Americans bent them to such an extent that the restoration of national dignity would take decades. Shinzo Abe is a worthy citizen of his country, he is trying to restore the authority of the country, but in the government there are a lot of agents of influence. But in Germany this is not and in the near future will not be seen

      In Japanese society, not everything is so simple and unambiguous, there are patriots there! About a year ago, the Americans convicted them of holding secret secret negotiations with the Chinese on a rather high level ... The Japanese were justified, supposedly resolving the issue on the islands of Sen-kaku (Diaoyu) with an area of ​​several square kilometers !!!

    what nonsense? Yapis are well aware of what, where and why. and therefore they are in the same boat with the states, America is not their enemy, trying on the situation of the 1940s today, Hiroshima and Nagasaki is simply stupid.
    their real opponents are those who are near, above all, the People's Republic of China. and to rely in the upcoming butting with the Chinese, they have no one but the United States. the anti-Chinese American-Japanese alliance is absolutely natural and logical.
    Are there any other candidates for Japan's allies?

And they intend to intercept our missiles, not Kim. They are still trapped in their plans for a quick disarming strike at us, but they need to remember about our system, which they call the "dead hand"!

      Americans will not attack. If, purely hypothetically, even the mess begins, then they will not get into it. The reasons will be too obvious, and the consequences are irreversible. They have the power of money, without a tangible share of the population, only one zilch will remain of this power. Therefore, they will only provoke someone to local clashes.

    Let them think about unresolved issues. With us, Comrade Zhukov decided everything, but it was not necessary to climb where they would pinch. When our businessmen in the 90s in the Far East ran into the Japanese at a restaurant at dinner, the joke was: "Bolt to you, not the islands." and the gesture is appropriate. The effect was good. Where are you climbing, huh? Wooden, or something, well, after all, they will pinch the nose.
