Japan is conducting a joint exercise with U.S. forces in the Kagoshima prefecture

p.s. perhaps it should have better been posted in Japan mil news or even Taiwan contingency topics(Kagoshima is about as far down south as you can make such drills non provocative). But whatever.

Awkward American moment:


Could you imagine their reactions if brand new PLAN ships looked like this. It's kind of symbolic of the whole country though: A decaying, overhyped, astronomically overpriced yet unnecessary piece of military industrial complex junk.
For a nation that prides itself on quality, this is the one evidence to show that unless they have something in the wings, well the USA seems to be in quite a scary predicament and that all those stories about the f-35 being a major disaster holds real weight. No American should be proud of something like this travesty

I disagree about the unnecessary.
The US Navy decides to install hypersonic missiles on the Zumwalt destroyers in place of the 155mm AGS cannons. There is talk of 4 large silos each with a capacity for 3 missiles, making a total of 12 of them. There will still be the original 80 vertical silos, some of which will hold 4 “ESSMs” totaling more than 100 ready-to-use missiles in the 80 silos. The Zumwalt has helicopter facilities even better than those on a “Ticonderoga” and a much smaller crew, and there will certainly be room and weight reserve for other weapons and missions.

That's what I love about this forum lately - an insightful look taken through the eyes of an expert into some technical matters delivered on a daily basis. Keep it up, please!
