Here's how the entire two carrier strike group will look when they have them noth finished, because the Kaga is agetting a similar upgrad:


For those who might be interested, I am selling my entire South Korean two carrier group with both Dokdo vessels, and two Se Jong the great AEGIS vessels, which are currently the heaviest armed AEGIS vessels in the west with a total of 165 missile launchers on her.

Here's the eBay page:

I think Izumo is destroyer, not carrier.

It's just a how Japanese calling their major surface combatants as destroyers at this time. It shouldn't be long that the amendment to their Constitution be come to pass, and with "Japanese Navy" (now known as JMSDF) once more in the official literature, Izumo will be reclassified properly as aircraft carrier...though of course if it's Akagi instead of Izumo, Ichikō-sen could indeed be resurrected in both name and deed... certainly even now they can do so with Izumo and Kaga.

I'm not sure any constitutional changes will come soon. The Japanese public are still against the change and it requires their support in a national referendum. The Japanese government can modify the law generally but they can't change the constitution itself with the referendum.

That said I don't think there's any need to change the constitution to allow JS Izumo to work as an aircraft carrier. The plans (obviously) have already been approved and put in motion.

All over the world nationalism fascist mentality is taking hold. Trump in the US, Erdogan in Turkey, Netanyahu in Israel, Abe in Japan, Tsai in Taiwan, Putin in Russia, Merkel in Germany, Johnson in Britain, just to name a few. The world is becoming more fascist. Japanese people will surely rearm and I guess they'll build 10 aircraft carriers.

That's complete hyperbole. I would agree with you that Erdogan, Putin and Trump are nationalists with autocratic/fascist tendancies. However, you certainly can't describe Abe, Tsai, Merkel or Johnson as fascist. They all believe in and support multi-party democracy.

Arguably they have already rearmed. However, there's no chance of them building 10 aircraft carriers, because their economy wouldn't support it.
