    Yes, the Hyuga class (DDH-181 and DDH-182) are very nice ships. The two, Hyuga, 181, and Ise, 182 were launched in 2007 and 2009 respectfully.

    But most focus is now on the Izumo class, which is much larger and more capable.

    The Izumo, DDH-183 was launched in 2013 and is expected to be commissioned in March.

    The second, DDH-184, is building now and expected to be launched in August of this year.

    This is the Izumo departing for sea trials.

    NOTE : I moved a couple of posts that were specifically about the V-22 Osprey to a new thread:

    V-22 Osprey Thread

    If you are looking for those posts, they are there.

    In the future, lets post specific V-22 Osprey news there.

    It's all fun and games until a North Korean skipper comes across the Liaoning and thinks that is his chance to launch a torpedo toward "American imperialism".

    The Korean leader has visions of grandeur and is delusional. but he also has the absolute power of life and death and so his military officers are in a situation where they have to placate him...or literally run the risk of being fed to the dogs.

    The idea of submarines and aircraft using an island as the simulated US Aircraft Carrier tells you all you need to know.

    Hey Kim "un", an island can't move at 32 knots or maneuver...and is not defended all around by AEGIS vessels, nuclear attack subs, and 70 or more sophisticated and modern aircraft...but what the heck? Is makes for great fun, lots of laughs for the fearless leader, and good propaganda I suppose.

    That's mighty close to an "aircraft carrier" island to be firing that torpedo. Any CV would've have spotted that thing long before it even opens it's torpedo doors.

    Akasha, such news and "tweets" should be posted to the LCA and the Indian Military news thread.

    This thread is about major Aircraft Carriers news specifically and should include verifiable and credible news sources and links to them.

    As far as the LCA is concerned, when India creates its first Indian Carrier LCA air wing squadron, or conducts its first tests of the LCA aboard a carrier...that might be worthy of posting on the carrier thread...but not every small bit of info regarding the LCA or other aircraft.

    As I said, post those on the Tejas thread or the Indian Military News thread.
