This is an interesting documentary about the development of the P1, if for anything, some interesting footage of testing and manufacturing in it.

Rather I'd think it being the opposite. Samurai mask was removed and smashed to pieces. But a new one has been made and is getting put on :ninja:

Pigs might fly one day, colonel, but I doubt it.

New long term defense strategy and general plan.

http://www.mod.go.jp...df/20181218.pdf

 

New mid-term defense procurement plan which covers years 2019 to 2023.

http://www.mod.go.jp..._seibi31-35.pdf

Of course there are many points, but out of the announced 105 F-35s, 45 are planned to be procured in this time frame, of the 45, 18 are the B models.

 

New illustrated and concise file that takes the long time guideline and 5 year procurement plan together.

Plans to develop a new AShM were made. The ASM-3 finished development in 2017 however due to political consideration about abilities that can attack bases, the range was kept down to the level of that of the previous AShM types. While ASM-3 can fly at Mach 3, its range is 140-200km. The new "Aegis style" Chinese warships have anti-air missiles with a range of 150km. And in the last 13-18 years, over 15 of these kinds of warships have entered service and even more are projected to come into service. So Japanese MoD sees it necessary to have a stand-off-missile that can be launched beyond the range of those anti-air missiles for increasing deterrence. The new missile is to take the ASM-3 and increase fuel and add other improvements to give it a range of over 400km. MoD hopes to put the new missile into practice within several years.

Japan is now in the position of figuring out appropriate retaliatory countermeasures against Korea after the recent South Korean court approval of asset seizure from Japanese firms as World War 2 forced labor compensation for 4 individual Korea plaintiffs, and after South Korea's unsatisfactory response this past week to the MFA's warning to Korea and Koreans of consequences for any actions that would harm Japanese firms mentioned in the dispute.

 

Abe and Japan must get a handle on this dispute firmly and quickly, as the setting of precedent for the right of individuals to claim wartime damages again Japan could have serious ramifications in various ways.

The essential fear is that if the Supreme Court of Korea's ruling on Japan's liability for damages to individual wartime forced labor plaintiffs is upheld by asset seizures from overseas Japanese firms such as Mitsubishi Heavy Industry, there is little preventing individual plaintiffs from the rest of Asia and the world from doing so as well.

 

The danger is in the MFA and Abe himself not taking this matter as seriously as they should for the protection of Japan and Japanese as a whole.

 

I am concerned.
