Japan plans to buy multi-purpose helicopters for the Navy

35
The Japanese Defense Ministry announced its intention to purchase universal deck helicopters for its Navy, the newspaper writes MIC with reference to tass.




“We are considering various options for procurement of universal sea-based helicopters,” a military official told reporters. “These machines will be used to transport goods, transport the wounded, and solve other non-combat tasks.”

According to him, the helicopters "are supposed to be placed on the destroyer helicopter carrier Izumo (formally classified as an escort ship)."

The number of cars and the amount that Japan is willing to pay for them has not been disclosed.

The Izumo helicopter carrier in appearance resembles American landing craft, but does not belong to this class due to the current ban on the possession of Japan by offensive arms.

According to "MIC", "Izumo's full displacement is 27 thousand tons, it is able to reach speeds up to 30 nodes and carry on board 14 deck helicopters."

    So they aim to get to the Kuril Islands. Sly glanders are preparing. And not just the Japs in the Far East. May God grant the Russian leadership wisdom and opportunities to keep the situation under control. I'm not talking about the current leadership. The question is who will be in power in 15 or 20 years. After all, Russia only raised its head, and the Americans stsat, suddenly it will rise to its feet .. God forbid again, as in the 90s? It’s scary to think ...

      The United States directs them, arms them and, in the end, sets them up.

      definitely! Japanese militarism again raises its head, fed by the United States, it poses a threat to all neighbors - both China and Russia

      All neighbors hate the Japanese, for the atrocities that they did in the 1 and 2 world wars

      We are all lucky that China has now risen and that it is, as it were, an ally, the main threat from the aggressors is now in the Pacific Ocean, and if there hadn’t been China - which balances the forces of Japan and the United States - now it would be difficult for Russia and for all of us

      С Курилами они летят не хуже фанеры над Парижем. И в Токио это прекрасно понимают... И окромя "северных территорий" у них есть вполне нешутейный территориальный спор с Поднебесной за пару незначительных островков. На данный момент для Японии это более актуальная и насущная проблема, нежели "возвращение северных территорий", поскольку в случае удачного разрешения спора позволит Стране восходящего солнца "сохранить лицо"...

    И тут двойные стандарты."Ой, нет, это не танк, это трактор такой. А впереди не пушка, а продвинутая система вентиляции"

    Помните да? "Если нечто выглядит как утка, плавает как утка и крякает как утка, то это, вероятно, утка и есть"
    And if the ship carries universal sea-based helicopters, then this is a helicopter carrier, and accordingly - offensive weapons.

      These machines will be used for transportation of goods, transportation of the wounded. The question is, where do the wounded come from, fishermen or what? Yes, and the Patriots post.

      Alone, they will not trample, even with South Korea and the states with whom they have an agreement on mutual assistance, they will not trample. If, for example, we converge near Kiev or Talin with Geysoyuz in a meat grinder, then japas will not miss such a moment. Moreover, the Kuril Islands will be only the beginning.

      They won’t buy it, the F-35 will burn the deck there. The Japanese will buy the usual F-35s with shortened takeoffs for ground-based. If an aircraft carrier is needed, they will build it. For Japanese shipbuilding, this is a trifle.

          F-35 should not burn the deck very critically, 50% of the rise is due to the fan. But the deck can be modified.

    At one time in the school in the 70s he wrote an essay on the topic of the self-defense forces of Japan. And the deeper he delved into the topic, the more clearly he realized how serious the enemy was the Japanese army, although it is veiled by self-defense forces.

    In fact, Izumo is a destroyer-helicopter carrier, he is superior to UDCs of the Uosp and Mistral type, since he has torpedo tubes and anti-submarine missiles on board. This vessel is not intended for island defense, but for offensive operations.

        Tricky is not the right word. Otherwise, why would they need TWO different modern MBTs - Type-90 and Type-10, attack helicopters - American Apaches and their own Ninja and artillery of 203 mm caliber?
        Plus MLRS and wheeled armored vehicles similar to the Striker M1128 and the Centaur (these are definitely not needed in defense)?

    Turntables are being bought against us (against the Pacific Fleet and the Far Eastern group - and a possible landing on the Kuril Islands) - how to give.

    This is not to go to the grandmother, as a former fisherman argue it is not a schooner, not a schooner. And they do not need turntables to drive Minka with a bearded man. I am glad that they now have rams with China. This is in our favor.

    Причина в "северных территориях " не дает она им покоя ,видимо и матрасники "подогревают". Хорошо то ,что видимо не зря наши на Курилах строят базу ,закрывать надо "дыру" -Дальний восток.

      Расстояние от Южно-Сахалинска до Токио меньше 1300 км, а с островов Курильской гряды можно "плюнуть" "КЛИБРОМ" ЛЮБОЙ ОСНАСТКИ (фугасной или с ЯЗ), в любую точку страны! К сожалению ДЖАПАНЫ ползают перед заокеанской обезьяной на ПУЗЕ и не только забыли, кто сбросил атомные бомбы на Хиросиму и Нагасаки, но усиленно вбивают в джапанские головы, что это сделали РУССКИЕ!

      Sir, to begin with, change the permanent residence to the Kuriles al-Kamchatka, then let's talk about faults and nuclear weapons. By the way, as the sons of Amateresu themselves say, the Won War is one that has not begun. Of course without prejudice to yourself. (I do not literally, but the essence is that.)

    After the First World War, in one European state, according to the Treaty of Versailles, it was also forbidden to have an army, navy, aviation in the form we were used to. However, Uncle Adik even managed to write the first tanks under tractors. Everyone knows the result.
