The combat Winnebago certainly is large.


:lol:

I would have compared the Bushmaster rather with a small bus, but a RV is also a good comparison.

The Bushmaster is the first foreign made military acquisition not made in USA I think?

No, Japan's previously bought marine GTs for its warships from the UK, technology for warship AESA radars from Thales Nederland, jet engines for the F-1 fighter & T-2 trainer from RR/Turbomeca, helicopters from AgustaWestland & Eurocopter, 76 & 127mm guns for ships from Oto Melara, FH70 155mm guns . . 

 

Much of that lot has been built under licence.

More news about Japan-UK co-operation on a new AAM. Basically, Meteor with a Japanese seeker, as already thought.

Countries like Japan that received the protection of the United States during the Cold War were tacitly obligated to either buy American or to otherwise not damage the bottom line of the U.S. military industrial complex.

 

The Japan of today is seeking to change that profit equation.

 

To do so, export restrictions must be lifted and the military must be expanded in role, technology level, and size. This was unthinkable just 25 years ago, when Japan was still dealing with the effects of the Toshiba disaster.

Two 8200 ton standard weight Aegis Destroyers are under development, one funded by the 2015 defense budget and the following funded by the 2016 defense budget. The giving standard weight is 500 tons heavier than the Atago class.

The super structure looks cluttered. I thought today a clean outside shell was desired to reduce the radar signature?


What is a COGLAG engine?

edit: japanese wiki knows https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/COGLAG

(英語 : COmbined G as turbine e Lectric A nd G as turbine, COGLAG )

I guess to have more electric power generation.

The wiki says that fuel economy is bad during low speed and cruising so more than 1 gas turbine engine is installed. During low speed or cruising, only 1 engine is used which uses a turbo-electric type of electric propulsion in order to increase fuel economy and to extend range. During high speeds, both (or all) engines are used.

That makes eight big Aegis ships with 90 or 96 VLS cells & ABM abilities.

The  "Shinshin" or "ATD-X" also now called just the "X-2" demonstrator was presented to journalists at the Mitsubishi Nagoya Aerospace factory today. It has performed testing on the runway and will make it's first flight no earlier than the middle of February. For that first flight test, it'll fly from Nagoya airport to ASDF Gifu airbase. It'll fly a maximum of 200 hours for 2016.

 

For the 8 years since 2009, the cost of the X-2 was 39.4 billion yen (about 350 million US dollars). The successor of the F-2, the F-3, is being aimed to enter service in the 2030s. The F-3 is meant to go beyond 5th generation fighters and be a 6th generation stealth counter fighter.

 

In 2018, it will decided whether or not to develop the F-3 entirely domestically or with international cooperation. And it will be decided if the F-3 should be exportable.

Gojira will never see these aircraft coming and will never know wot hit it.

 

Then again, Gojira don't care and will likely just shrug it off like before.

The 2016 defense budget includes the acquisition of one C-2. Plans are to eventually acquire 20-40 of them.

I seem to recall that the US had developed (prototype) "rocket ramjets" where the ramjet internals were filled with solid rocket fuel to act as a boost phase, then switching to ramjet thereafter (with presumably a liquid injected fuel). Might have been in the context of either 120mm ramjet boosted rounds or maybe one of the proposed hypersonic ATGM designs that was all the rage 10 years ago or so.

Dunno about US ramjet tank AP rounds, but at least the Soviet ones were found to be lacking precision. Would not be a problem if guidance tech robust enough to survive a stout gun launch were available by then. Today, dunno...

A correction. While on page 12 of the 2016 defense budget doesn't specifically indicate the number of C-2s to be procured, so it seemed like just one. Note on the same page it has 4 ospreys, 36 MCVs, and 11 AAV7s.
http://www.mod.go.jp.../2016/yosan.pdf

New news articles like the following one report three C-2s will be deployed to Miho Air Base in Tottori Prefecture during the year. Eight will be deployed by the end of 2018.

Another runway test with a little more thrust this time at 3:35. Title says full afterburner but I doubt that.

Chief Cabinet Secretary (Suga Yoshihide) said at a press conference on March 17th that Prime Minister Abe was going to attend the graduation ceremony at the Japan Coast Guard School on March 19th. It would be the first time for a prime minster to attend a graduation ceremony at the school (Maizurushi, Kyoto).

 

Suga said that "it is to encourage the personnel in the important mission that is directly connected to national interest such as the maintenance of law and security in sea territory around Japan as well as the defense for the sea territory around the Senkaku islands (Ishigakishi, Okinawa prefecture).

Not long ago, the Acquisition, Technology & Logistics Agency made a contract worth 9,473,060,160¥ with Kawasaki Heavy Industries for next generation onboard electronics observation equipment completly fitted out on an aircraft.

 

In order to mount the next generation electronic observation equipment onto the next generation transport aircraft number 2, improvements and modifications will be made and built into part of the loading section of the fuselage (a section of the C-2 transport fuselage).

 

The picture is of a XC-2 electronics observation modified model on display at the technology symposium [2015]
