    US Navy and JMSDF conduct bilateral ASW operations

    JMSDF-US-OPs-01.jpg

    The US Navy used two Burke class DDGs one a Flight I and the other a Flight IIA. These are very similar to the Japanese Kongo and Atago class AEGIS DDGs.

    They also used an Akizulki class DDG, which was designed as an escort for BMD shooting JApanese AEGIS DDGs.

    The exerciese also included an LA Class SSN< and a JSMDF Oyashio class SSK.

    All of this was conducted in the Philippine Sea.

    IMHO, they are working on ensuring that they can find and prosecute SSNs and SSKs in those waters.

    They also did other exercises including the maneuvering drills and visit, board, search, and seizure (VBSS) exercises...but make no mistake, the ASW exercises and operations were the real focus of these exercises.

    I will leave it to your imagination as to which SSKs and SSNs they were most concerned with in the Philippine Sea.

    USS Decatur, DDG-73, Flight I Arleigh Burke AEGIS DDG

    USS Spruance, DDG-111, Flight IIA Arleigh Burke AEGIS DDG

    JMSDF Teruzuki DDG-116, Akizuki Class DDG

    US Navy Los Angeles Class SSN

    LA-Class-SSN.jpg

    JMSDF Oyashio Class SSK

    Those were probably some very intensive and serious exercises, and make pretty clear what the US and JMSDF policy is in the SCS should FON ever fail, or be militarily challenged.

    These are going to b GREAT replacements for the Whidbey Island (8) and Harper's Ferry (4) LSDs. Those were commissioned from 1985 to 1998.

    They will build twelve of these to replace those LSDs...and Ingalls will just keep on chugging.

    Plus, using the same basic hull form as the San Antonio Class LPDs drives up the economy of scale and drives down the price.

    Most excellent.

    There were four of these harassing maneuver last week.

    Seems to me its past time to employ the new VLS launched, fire and forget Lockheed martin AGM-114L Longbow Hellfire missile that the US Navy tested in 2015 aboard the LCS.

    They fied three missiles at three individual targets and destroyed each one in succession.

    Here's some pics of one of those engagements:


    VLS-Hellfire-01.jpg

    VLS-Hellfire-02.jpg

    VLS-Hellfire-03.jpg

    VLS-Hellfire-04.jpg

    They then ripple fired three missiles at three boats...and destroyed all three of them.

    Here's a pic from that last engagement:

    VLS-Hellfire-07.jpg

    I think we ought to load up the Cyclones, or even the Burkes with these missiles.

    It is a VLS canister than bolts onto the deck, a canister of 24 missiles which is small as ASMs go. They can be targeted either by the vessel, or a helo or aircraft.

    Once fired, it uses its own guidance to then take it into the target it received from the original sensors.

    I believe a few Iranian fast boats would be an excellent live test if they keep pushing it like they are.

    Amazing ! one submarine launched variant seems necessary.

    If do same length than AGM-158B, 4.27 m the booster is long do 3 m + 4.27 : 7.27 m we can envisaged a weight of 1.5 t.

    Can fit only in MK 41 strike version host missiles of max 7.7 m, tactical 6.8 m, defense 5.3 m max

    A Tomahawk do 6.3 m, SM-3/6, 6,65 m

    CMV-22B

    Enough logic the CAW deployed to Atsugi move soon for Iwakuni with USMC aircrafts had already been
    the first to have 4 Super Hornets Sqns with its location, privileged.

    Replace 32 C-2A
    Norfolk
    VAW-120 OCU for E-2 also have 5
    VRC-40 have 16
    North Island
    VRC-40 have 10

    Used in CAW Detachments of 2.

    Planned 44 CMV-22B
