Japan formed a large grouping of ships to guard the islands in the East China Sea

33
The Japanese Navy completed the creation of the country's largest grouping of border ships to patrol islands in the East China Sea, some of which are claimed by China, reports TASS Post by the Japanese Maritime Safety Authority.




On Wednesday, "the group consisted of two newest border ships Izena and Aguni" with a displacement of 1,5 thousand tons each, armed with 20-millimeter cannons and powerful water cannons, "the message reads. Currently in the grouping there are 14 ships.

It is also reported that “two helicopter carriers from the group are based in the port of Naha (Okinawa island), the rest of the 12 patrol aircraft are located on the island of Ishigaki, i.e. in the immediate vicinity of the Senkaku archipelago, which China considers its “illegally occupied territory”.

Beijing claims that Japan captured these islands along with Taiwan at the end of the 19 century after the victory over imperial China. As a result of World War 2, Tokyo gave up its rights to Taiwan, and, in Beijing’s opinion, should also give up Senkaku.

Japan, in turn, argues that it did not conquer these uninhabited islands from anyone, but joined them peacefully in accordance with international laws.

            20mm guns and powerful water cannons ...
            I do not want to instill panic in the Japanese, but this is not the weapon of retaliation that China will pay attention to.
            Our drunken fishermen are even more dangerous.

              Japanese aggressors during the Second World War sowed horror and hatred among all the neighbors around.
              They are hated by all the neighbors, without exception. there will be no peace in yap

              but in fact, the Yaps have the strongest Navy and will argue with the Chinese

              water cannons, as you read everything, are necessarily used for all border conflicts in that area - both by the Chinese and others. I understand that it sounds ridiculous for site commentators - as if water cannons are not RCC - but they are simply used at the first level of the conflict. so as not to immediately drown each other

            And what is a Japanese large ship grouping?
            Yes, all sorts of little things ... 3 helicopter carriers, 1 destroyer (with a reinforced aviation group), 8 URO destroyers, up to 30 destroyers of different generations and classes, 6 frigates, 16 submarines, almost 50 thousand personnel, not counting about 12 thousand. coastal defense forces. Compared to our Pacific Fleet? 1 Cruiser, 4 destroyers, 12 MBK (MRK + IPK), 19 missile boats, 4 BDK (they have some kind of weapons), everything else is trifle, SSBN - 2, SSGN - 3, PLAB - 1, SSK - 4 (total 10 submarines), something about ~ 22 thousand personnel. Yes, we have where to add, but the Japanese also have where -> USA, South Korea, Europe, Asia-Pacific countries. So I don't understand your dismissive attitude towards the Japanese fleet.

                True, it’s also worth considering aviation and coastal batteries
                In general, it was a question of the fleet, but here's an example of their capabilities: F-15 Eagle ~ 200, Mitsubishi F-2 (licensed F-16) ~ 70, F-4 Phantom II ~ 75 In total, about 340 in total, also they are waiting with 50-60 F-35, developing their project of the 5th generation machine. In addition, the United States uses a base in Okinawa, and with 10 aircraft carriers they have, they can quickly fly planes from Hawaii and Alaska, and the South Korean and Australian Air Force are nearby. We have the 303rd mixed aviation division (fighter, assault, bomber aviation regiments: Su-27SM, MiG-31 (modifications), Su-30M2, Su-35S, Su-24M, Su-25SM), 120th separate fighter Su-30SM aviation regiment (like) and the 266th separate assault aviation regiment: Su-25, plus the Navy aviation (31st Migi and PLO aircraft). I don’t know the full list of airborne personnel, but so on a vaping (if we subtract from the total composition of vehicles in all the Air Force and Navy) in that region ~ 400-450 airborne. In general, they are approximately equal (we have a slight advantage) if we subtract the air forces of other countries and leave only Japan.

                  And where does "we" and the dispute between China and Japan have to do with it?

                  Let them understand their territorial dispute. China, except for good-natured nods in our direction, no longer helps us in our disputes. So why should we fight for them and die ?! No, really. China is not a friend to us, but a partner (and then on its own terms), and do not forget that. They will not die for us, but at a convenient time, due to us, we will rise, it is easy.

                    1: And despite the fact that if you looked above and saw where the discussion began, then you would not be asked such questions. 2: Not only China has territorial disputes with Japan, we even more principledly and on that side there are voices (albeit unofficially) to resolve these disputes by force of arms and if you remember why these disputes have not yet been resolved although Habomai and Shikotan Since the USSR was ready to give, it was important to understand that keeping a finger on the pulse would not be superfluous.

      Let's get the guys. Quarrel with China even more and, if possible, shoot a little. I do not believe in this, because the samurai still have brains, but that would be only for our good. In general, I would really like Japan to quarrel with everyone in the region. Because she has claims and territorial disputes against everyone. To Russia along the Kuril Islands, to China along the Spratly Islands, to South Korea along the Dokdo Islands. We stock up on pop food.

        It seems that the doctrine of deterring China is not just proactive, but directly pushes to war. I don’t dare discuss the whole range of legal issues regarding island ownership, but pressure on China is increasing and third countries are doing it in good American habit.
        I can imagine how American firms will work in at least a short-term military clash between China and Japan.

    This is a new show that involves the whole region - "give the islands back"! The bottom line is simple - they take a bunch of countries that have or think that they have territorial claims even to those countries with which they do not border, and play off among themselves. .. and the puppeteers look with gloating. ..

    and then they’re shirking their mouths on the Kuril Islands? Japan before the occupation of the Kuril Islands in Nikolaev Russia generally did not belong to them at all
