    now noticed (dated 17 May 2019)
    Japan awards contract extension for development of new ship-launched SAM system https://www.janes.com/article/88607...r-development-of-new-ship-launched-sam-system
    ... and the rest is behind paywall at Jane's: https://www.janes.com/article/88607...r-development-of-new-ship-launched-sam-system

    inside
    Japan's plan to remodel Izumo-class carriers: Needed upgrade or mere show of force? https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2...-needed-upgrade-mere-show-force/#.XOlw_v5S-pp
    :

    "In fact, in announcing the new National Defense Guidelines last December, Iwaya, the defense minister, admitted that the Izumo conversion plan was not based on requests or proposals from Self-Defense Forces leaders, but was adopted based on a top-down decision among high-ranking government officials."

    I think you don't want me to comment, but give me a sign if you do

    Say it Jura..say it.

    IMHO, Civilians need to leave military matters to military personal. Period.

    I called that idea to be fanboish bunk Feb 27, 2018
    and now I see it's worse than that, as it's something Politicians imposed on their Military;

    those particular Politicians could be gone in a year or so, the consequences of their megalomania left to Military to handle

    yeah and once they spend all 16 (sixteen) missiles, which is a really low number considering her displacement, an empty VLS may be displayed all over the circular wall
