Military Review

In Tokyo, said they are ready to shoot down a North Korean rocket

28
The press service of the Ministry of Defense of Japan issued a statement that the North Korean rocket, the launch of which was announced by Pyongyang, can be shot down if "there is a security threat to the Japanese population." Such an order was given by the Minister of Defense of the Country of the Rising Sun, Gen Nagatani. The press service of the Defense Ministry of Japan said that they plan to shoot down a missile with the SM-3 antimissiles, which are in service with destroyers (we are talking about destroyers with Aegis systems).


In Japan, they say that a rocket fired from one of the DPRK ranges can fly over a group of islands in the southern part of the country. We are talking about the Sakishima Archipelago (Okinawa Prefecture, in which there are American military bases).

Information Agency Kyodo News reports that the order of the head of the Japanese defense department is valid until February 25, however, if Pyongyang decides to move the launch dates, the order will be extended.

Recall that Pyongyang informed Tokyo and international organizations about the upcoming launch, which, as announced, is scheduled for the period from 8 to 25 in February.

In Tokyo, said they are ready to shoot down a North Korean rocket


Earlier in Pyongyang, they said that a DPRK had a hydrogen bomb in its arsenal. In the West, they believe that the DPRK leadership is bluffing. However, despite all the allegations of Pyongyang's bluffing, the West and its eastern ally, Japan, with obvious concern, are following the news from the DPRK, including news about the upcoming missile launch, as a result of which the North Korean satellite should be put into orbit.

    No, well, if a missile is launched directly through Japan, then the Japanese, in principle, have the right to shoot it down. Another question is whether it will be possible to do this, or whether the Patriot air defense system (evil jet brick) will show itself as usual.

    And yes, in the place of the Japanese government, I would have made exactly the same statement, for my citizens must be reassured.

      SM-3, not Patriot, which are in service with destroyers (we are talking about destroyers, 8 pieces, with Aegis systems, S-band radar using 3-4 GHz frequencies, wavelength 7,5-10 cm. )
      In the field conditions for intercepting BRs, they showed themselves well, of course.
      Put them a little interference (see frequency above) - "Donald Cook" in the Black Sea will be laughing .

      It is very interesting whether the SM-3 (not Patriot) will be able to shoot down the North Korean ICBM.
      I think our specialists of the appropriate profile will be ready to monitor how everything goes.
      Although, most likely, the Americans will prohibit the Japanese from launching SM-3 combat launches in an area that will be closely monitored by both us and China. Moreover, there is a possibility of an unsuccessful interception attempt - and this will seriously damage the "reputation" of Aegis.

    Negotiations and diplomatic solutions to problems are no longer in vogue? If anything, shoot right away? Where's the samurai endurance?

      You correctly noticed. Zamoshki something cowboy. From which we can conclude that the Japanese only open their mouths. Dolls. As in Ukraine.
      And the ears of screenwriters and directors stick out in the United States.

    may be shot down

    No sooner had the Americans strengthened their air defenses in Japan, when Japan immediately began to bend her fingers. Maybe soon they will start making claims to us about launches from the Vostochny cosmodrome?

    "There will be a security threat to the people of Japan."

    And before this order, their air defense "threatening the safety of the population" was not required to shoot down missiles? belay

    An anti-aircraft missile system "Triumph" has been deployed in the Russian Far East to protect against North Korean weapons, the chief of the General Staff of the RF Armed Forces said today. Military analysts doubt that this information is entirely true. The DPRK's danger is greatly exaggerated, on the eastern borders Moscow is creating its own missile defense and air defense system to counterbalance the growing American one.

    Russia has deployed S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems in the Far East and plans to use them to protect itself in connection with the DPRK missile tests, Chief of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces Nikolai Makarov told reporters on Wednesday.

    And you yourself try to agree with the DPRK about something! They defiantly withdraw from the Treaties on the non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, ballistic missiles, nuclear tests. Only the northerners succeed in this. But the people cannot be fed! In my opinion, it looks like blackmail, soon the DPRK will allow "persuade" yourself to negotiate. And free food, fuel, etc. will go like a river. hi

    Without pre-installed beacons, they’ll only get your finger in .... well, you get the idea. All these iron mouse domes, sm3 and so on - money laundering, even the old gigantic SCUDS with an unchanged trajectory and inseparable warhead are capable of dropping no more than 70% of those sent, where there to shoot medium-range missiles, not to mention intercontinental ...

    Our "Great Leader" should be pinned down. He's not going anywhere. Should dance to the Russian tune and be a scarecrow for the entire region, especially for the Americans.

    It will be interesting if they really try to bring down. Moreover, regardless of the result. We think there is someone to analyze how the Korean missile and the American missile defense will behave.

    Fans of "chyuchkhe" only put the minuses, but explain their position is weak! This country since its inception lives ONLY for foreign handouts. From the 50s to the beginning of the 90s, these were the countries of socialism. Then socialism became a thing of the past, and the "market" relations "- and there was HUNGER. The shy Korean authorities call the number of victims - 10 thousand dead. Various international organizations call the number completely different - from 1 to 3 MILLION V. Now the DPRK is mainly fed by their" enemies ", evil imperialists" - this is the USA , Japan, South Korea (main sponsors), millions of tons of food, medicines for billions of dollars. The EU, China, Russia also help. hi RS-Maybe someone wants to say that the territory of the DPRK is not very suitable for farming, there is little arable land. But there is little land and mountains in Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, but they work, they sell and buy something! And do not wait until they bring them !! hi

    The space launch vehicle and the intercontinental ICBM are no different and no different ..? In addition, in North Korea, it is customary to invite foreign specialists before launching a rocket, as last time to make sure that it is a peaceful satellite .. But for some reason, they only defiantly refuse ..

    And you yourself try to reach an agreement with the DPRK! They defiantly withdraw from the Treaties on the Non-Proliferation of WMD, BR, Nuclear Tests

    And this is not some kind of blackmail, but the defense of their national interests .. by the way .. the agreement on the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons provides legalthe procedure for leaving it having the appropriate grounds on oo. North Korea has them. Here is the text:
    http://www.un.org/ru/documents/decl_conv/conventions/npt.shtml
    Article X
    1. Each Party to this Treaty, in the exercise of state sovereignty, has the right to withdraw from the Treaty if it decides that the exceptional circumstances related to the content of this Treaty have jeopardized the highest interests of its country. He shall notify such withdrawal in three months to all Parties to the Treaty and to the United Nations Security Council. Such a notice should contain a statement of exceptional circumstances, which he considers to be in jeopardy of his highest interests.

    Read article 10 paragraph 1 of the Agreement ..
    As for the agreement on the prohibition of nuclear tests, the DPRK did not sign it once, secondly, this agreement has not yet been ratified by anyone i.e. not entered into force. third, why the United States also recently conducted its test of nuclear weapons, but no one condemns them for violating this treaty ..?

    As for launching a rocket with a satellite, then the international community has an "ambush" too .. accusing the DPRK of allegedly violating international law by launching a missile with a satellite, ostensibly thereby covering up the tests of their ICBMs, they themselves violate international law .. The proof is here:
    Treaty on the Principles of the Activities of States for the Exploration and Use of Outer Space, including the Moon and Other Celestial Bodies
    http://www.un.org/ru/documents/decl_conv/conventions/outer_space_governing.shtml

    Here we read .. Article 1:
    Article I
    The exploration and use of outer space, including the moon and other celestial bodies, is carried out for the benefit and in the interests of all countries, regardless of the degree of their economic or scientific development, and are the property of all mankind.

    Outer space, including the moon and other celestial bodies, is open for research and use by all states without any discrimination on the basis of equality and in accordance with international law, with free access to all areas of celestial bodies.

    Outer space, including the moon and other celestial bodies, is free for scientific research, and states promote and encourage international cooperation in such research.

    so that the international community can go the forest with their accusations .. let them first learn to abide by the international law that they themselves created .. And not as they now require compliance from others, but the bolts themselves put international law on this ..

    Nobody will allow them to shoot down this missile, and especially the states. Imagine what embarrassment America will experience if they "shoot" and do not hit. And what they can't bring down is true.

    To knock down or not to knock down? That is the question! In fact, the Korean topic is also interesting because we are discussing the DPRK, and the sources of information - the cat cried, we use only official information or rumors, in short, fortune-telling on coffee grounds.
