    The Akizuki calss and its follow-on are GREAT vessels.

    I put DDG-118 Fuyuzuki in my Japanese dual carrier strike group as one of the escorts. She was the 4th Akizuki class built, Shw was then followed by the two follow ons, DDG-119 Asahi and DDG-120 Shiranui.

    Umm, have you actually been reading the threads on the Forum, as opposed to trolling?

    Like their sister ships, the Akizuki class, these are also great vesels. Japan continues t develop strong systems and vessels.

    with the Muraaami, the Takinami, the Akizuki and the Asahi classes, they have a total of 20 very decent destroyers...then add the eight AEGIS DDGs to that. Good vessels and good personnel. Very squared away.

    @SamuraiBlue

    Did you get a chance to see this?

    Youtube video of Dual Carrier Strike Force using F-35Bs

    Hope you enjoy it. I am happy to see Japan step up to this plate. It is a critical step and will help support all Wetern Pacific freedom loving nations IMHO.

    When I first saw the initial story I thought it was rather strange that it was on a solo flight as the F-35 typically train in a four plane formation. The MADL network supposedly enables the flight formation to be totally aware of each plane's relative location in the formation and to operate as one unit. They would know the exact location when it went missing - if it did.

    now I recalled something I had wanted to ask you Brumby, but then forgot:

    to Mar 31, 2019
    you reacted with Apr 1, 2019
    did you answer what I specifically asked
    "the question is how many F-35As is there now in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/302nd_Tactical_Fighter_Squadron_(JASDF)?"
    or you referred to Japan in general?
