    but why is JMSDF running those flat decks empty

    I only see one Seahawk helicopter on the Izumo class?

    thats a bad habit that flat deck can handle some serious loads easily 30+ helicopters

    Completely agree, plus we got to remember that JMSDF have one of the most powerfull ASW helicopter fleets in the world, with almost 100 SH60 units.
