    actually the source is not the video. The source was a Japanese graphic novel called Kubo Ibuki. That model is of the DDV192 JSDF Ibuki the namesake of the Novel. That was inspired by early reports of the JSMDF ( or is it JMSDF?) Were building Destroyer flattops that could potentially deck F35Bs. It was written by Osamu Eya and Kaiji Kawaguchi and was launched back in 2014.
    Kawaguchi is a bit of a Japanese Tom Clancy... If Tom Clancy wrote comics. The Japanese are infact making a live action movie based off it.
    His previous titles include Eagle, the plot being that the Democrats (as in U.S. DNC) decide to nominate a American of Japanese decent for POTUS, Zipang, where a modern Japnese AEGIS class destroyer is dropped into the second world war (plot similar to an 1980 American film The Final Countdown where the Nimitz carrier group finds its self days before the attack on Pearl Harbor)
    And The Silent Service, where a Joint American Japanese SSN is given to the Really wrong captain and basically starts world war III by bluffing the world to think the SSN has Nuclear torpedoes, and sinking the Enterprise And Carl Vincent.

    looks like I need to explicitly say what's the point of my Today at 10:38 AM
    post; the point has been this:
    in the sticky thread, dealing with the biggest military program ever, toys and, ehm, pop art should be distinguished from reality

    Accordingly, which is why I don't favor that image. You cannot take this.
    DDH-183_いずも_(11).jpg
    And make it this.

    It's longer and requires more than bolting on a ramp.
    But you can operate Izumo class with F35B. And the SDF. Is buying them for Izumo and her sister. That is a reality.

    one of the things I've learned from Jeff is to wait for an official announcement AND don't take seriously journalists' spin (based on their 'unnamed sources', 'understanding' etc.);

    in other words, what matters is what an Admiral; General; Minister; President etc. exactly said (this still might not become true anyway!), and it doesn't matter what journalists made it sound;

    in the present case, Japanese officials were vague Friday at 4:48 PM
    if I didn't miss anything, if something didn't get lost in translation, or what ever
