    Izumo in the South China Sea. Now it's time to train with aircraft carriers during joint India-US-Japan exercise on the Indian Ocean.

    国産初、超音速の空対艦ミサイルを来年度導入へ http://www.yomiuri.co.jp/politics/20170716-OYT1T50101.html
    "First domestic production, to introduce a supersonic air-to-ship missile next fiscal year"


    "The procurement costs of several hundred million yen are posted in the estimate request for FY 2018, and the mass production system is entered. It is the first supersonic speed as a domestic air-to-ship missile, which is characterized by being hard to intercept. There is an aim to check the Chinese Navy where stern activities are prominent in the East China Sea.

    The domestically produced air-to-ship missile that has already been introduced has "80 type" and "93 type" close to the sound speed, but the new model has a dramatically faster speed of about 3 times the flight speed of 93 type than the 93 type . In terms of speed, we line up with the same kind of state-of-the-art missiles abroad.

    The time to hit the target is greatly shortened, and enemy ships are less likely to intercept missiles because they can fly at low altitude near the sea surface that can not be caught by the radar. It is said that the range will be longer than 93 (hundreds of kilometers)."

    It seems like XASM3 hits the targets at least. Ex-Shirane went out from Maizuru on July 11th like this...

    With the money request for the next fiscal year of the 'new air-to-surface missile' that Yomiuri wrote about I think that this live fire test was the last step in acceptance process.
