    What a warship and also cool name

    Any idea what the 2nd unit to due to be launched?

    Japan should have built 4 and also 4 Atago class

    Plus they have 4 x Kongo class

    2 x Maya
    2 x Atago
    4 x Kongo

    8 x AEGIS units

    It'll be interesting to see how quickly Japan will start retrofitting SPY-6 derivatives onto its Aegis destroyers.

    I would expect the follow up to Maya, to get the full version of SPY-6 AMDR, making it comparable to a Flight III.

    It is "Attago" that I arranged at the same angle as possible with Alsace's "Maya" picture for comparison of the ship shadow. Please pay attention as well. <(_ _)>
