    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.

    inside the USNI News https://news.usni.org/2019/06/19/navy-next-large-surface-combatant-will-look-a-lot-like-zumwalt
    :
    When introducing Galinis and Selby, retired Navy Capt. Richard White, the TSS 2019 committee chair, said Secretary of the Navy Richard V. Spencer had requested that conference attendees not ask questions about aircraft carriers. No reason was offered for the request.

    When asked by USNI News to clarify what instructions Spencer may have given Navy personnel and conference organizers, Navy spokesmen from the secretary’s and assistant secretary’s offices said they were unaware of any direction not to discuss aircraft carriers at the conference.

    During his keynote address highlighting recent advances naval ship design, Galinis merely said, “the one new design over the last couple of years is obviously the Ford-class carrier, but we’re not going to talk a lot about that over the next couple of days.”

    Nowhere in that link does it say there is a carrier group in the Persian Gulf.

    Perhaps you can show me where it says that?


    I presume you know the Gulf of Oman is not the same thing as the Persian Gulf...

    If you think that orange dot is in the Persian Gulf then you are either blind, or just don't know geography?
