Fearful of China, Japan plans $276 billon defense spending

A new 10-year defense plan approved by the Japanese Cabinet on Friday describes China's burgeoning military power as a "matter of concern" for other countries in East Asia, and calls for more mobile and flexible Self-Defense Forces to respond to the new threats facing Japan.

The National Defense Program Guidelines document calls the military emergence of China as a "matter of concern both for the region and the international community".

The Kan Cabinet also approved the Mid-Term Defense Program, a projection of defense spending over the next five years, on December 17. In that period, total defense spending is estimated at 23.49 trillion yen ($276 billion). Average annual defense spending is expected to increase by about 0.1 percent. In comparison, the 2005-2009 Mid-Term Defense Program saw cuts in annual defense spending.

The new strategy emphasizes "dynamic defense capabilities" that stress mobility and rapid response by the Self-Defense Forces. It also calls for strengthening of the defense of the Nansei island chain that lies off the south of Kyushu and extends to close to Taiwan. Both are clear reflections of concerns about China's emerging military presence in the region. The disputed Senkaku Islands, which were the focus of a spat with China in September, are in the Nansei region.

12/01/2011

L'image donne une bonne idée de la puissance des destroyers américains et japonais. Lundi, alors que le groupe aéronaval du porte-avions USS Carl Vinson était en route pour la Corée du sud, des manoeuvres ont été organisées avec la marine japonaise. A cette occasion, le destroyer Karuma a navigué entre deux de ses homologues américains, l'USS Gridley et l'USS Stockdale.
Second destroyer du type Shirane, le Kuruma, mis en service en 1981, sera prochainement remplacé par un porte-hélicoptères du type Hyuga. Long de 158.8 mètres pour un déplacement de 7200 tonnes en charge, le Kuruma dispose de deux tourelles de 127mm, deux systèmes multitubes Phalanx, un système surface-air pour missiles Sea Sparrow, un système anti-sous-marin Asroc et six tubes lance-torpilles. Il peut, en outre, embarquer trois hélicoptères de lutte anti-sous-marine.
Les USS Gridley et USS Stockdale sont, quant à eux, des destroyers lance-missiles du type Arleigh Burke Flight IIA. Mis en service en 2007 et 2009, ces bâtiments de 155.3 mètres présentent un déplacement à pleine charge de 9200 tonnes. Ils embarquent 96 cellules de lancement vertical pour missiles SM-2 MR, SM-3, ESSM-RIM et Tomahawk, une tourelle de 127mm, deux canons de 25mm, un système Phalanx, 6 tubes lance-torpilles et deux hélicoptères.

Gates suggests US fighters for Japan


(AFP) – 8 hours ago
TOKYO — Defense Secretary Robert Gates on Thursday suggested Japan should consider buying US fighter jets, during talks in Tokyo, as the country plans for new warplanes, a US official said.
In a meeting with Defence Minister Toshimi Kitazawa, Gates "suggested Japan consider three US planes to upgrade their fleet," the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, the F/A-18 Hornet and the F-15 Eagle, the senior defence official told AFP.
Gates offered that the Pentagon could provide Japan with an analysis of the merits of each aircraft, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
Japan is taking stock of its defence hardware in the face of China's growing military might and assertive stance in the Pacific.
Gates flew to Tokyo Wednesday after a visit to China, where his fence-mending talks were overshadowed by a Chinese stealth fighter test, which came sooner than US military officials had anticipated.
During his visit to Beijing this week, Gates noted that Japan was looking for a new fighter aircraft.
"And so that would give Japan the opportunity -- if they bought the right airplane -- to have a fifth generation capability. And I might have a few suggestions for them," he told reporters on Tuesday.
"Fifth-generation" fighters are equipped with stealth, radar-evading equipment, and the F-35 -- which is still under development -- would meet that requirement.
Lockheed Martin's F-35, the most expensive weapons programme in Pentagon history, has been plagued by cost overruns and technical delays, with the project expected to cost an estimated $382 billion.
The United States is covering 90 percent of the cost of the F-35's development but has participation from Britain, Italy, Turkey, the Netherlands, Canada, Denmark, Norway and Australia.
Other nations, including Israel and Singapore, have signed contracts to buy the aircraft.
Japan initially aimed to acquire the F-22 stealth fighter to replace its ageing F-4EJ fighter fleet, but US law prohibits exports of the F-22 and the United States has announced a plan to halt production of the model.
Japan has also studied other models such as the F/A-18 and F-15FX, and the Eurofighter, produced by a consortium of European manufacturers, as possible replacements for its fighter fleet.

Japan, U.S. Reach Accord on 5th-Generation Stealth Fighter Jets


Foreign Minister Seiji Maehara said Tuesday that Japan and the United States have reached a confidentiality agreement on the F-35 fighter jet, which is highly likely to become the Japanese Air Self-Defense Force's main next- generation fighter replacing its outdated F-4 fleet.

According to Maehara, he and U.S. Ambassador to Japan John Roos exchanged documents on the security of confidential information on the F-35 fifth-generation multirole fighter system.

The F-35 family of single-engine, single-seat "stealth" fighters descends from the X-35 program -- itself a product of the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) program which has been principally funded by the U.S., with the United Kingdom and other partner governments providing additional funding.

Sources close to the matter said that the Japanese government has budgeted around 600 million yen (7.27 million U.S. dollars) for research costs on the F-35 system in its fiscal 2011 budget and will, in fiscal 2012, seek to have the funds secured to purchase Japan's next generation fighter jet fleet.

Japan was initially eyeing the U.S.'s twin-engined F-22 Raptor - - a fifth-generation stealth and air superiority multirole fighter. However the U.S. export ban on its highly classified technology made this prohibitive.

Although the government now sees the F-35 as its strongest candidate, it is also looking into other options which include the multirole, single-engine Eurofighter and the somewhat aged carrier- capable F/A-18 Hornet from the U.S

Japanese Navy Begins Training with U.S. Navy

PEARL HARBOR | Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF) submarine, JS Uzushio (SS 592) arrived at Naval Station Pearl Harbor to begin annual training exercises with U.S. Navy submarine forces, Feb.7.

"It is a pleasure to extend a heartfelt submarine force 'Aloha' to our friends from Japan on their arrival," said Rear Adm. Frank Caldwell, commander, Submarine Force, U.S. Pacific Fleet. "I'm honored to reciprocate the warm hospitality that Japan shows our U.S. submarines when they deploy to the Western Pacific. While the Pacific Ocean spans many miles, any submariner here in Hawaii will tell you the U.S. and Japan are neighbors."

Commissioned March 9, 2000, and based out of Yokosuka, Japan, the Oyashio-class submarine will be conducting both in-port and at-sea training on undersea tactics, anti-submarine warfare and war time strategies.

Uzushio is scheduled to attend training at the Naval Submarine Training Center Pacific (NSTCP) and the Pacific Missile Range Facility (PMRF) to conduct advanced sonar training and submarine damage control, as well as a series of Harpoon missile and torpedo operations during the visit.

"Your Sailors have a lot of experiences and deep knowledge. We want to learn a lot from them, "said Cmdr. Mitsutake Chihara, Uzushio commanding officer. "It's not only training but also our friendship. I think the friendship between submariners is the strongest in the navies, and I hope this visit will make the Japan-U.S. relationship stronger."

Continued joint training operations are essential aspects of maintaining strong relationships and enhancing interoperability with allies in the Pacific. Chihara emphasized the benefits of working and training together.

"This training gives a lot of merit for both submarine forces," said Chihara. "It is an honor for Uzushio to be invited to the best submarine sanctuary in the Pacific, and we are looking forward to improving our skills through the training at good facilities with good instructors."

The exercises are designed to enhance the tactical proficiency of warfare capabilities in a variety of sea operations and strengthen their knowledge in joint training operations.

US pushes Japan on missile interceptor coproduction




WASHINGTON, Feb 14 (Reuters) - The Pentagon's Missile Defense Agency is pressing Tokyo to clear the sale of advanced missile interceptors, codeveloped with Japan, to third countries and to agree to joint production.

The United States plans to deploy the Standard Missile-3 Block IIA upgrade by 2018, U.S. Army Lieutenant General Patrick O'Reilly said in a Jan. 3 letter to Nobushige Takamizawa, director general of policy at the Japanese defense ministry.

The system is a centerpiece of President Barack Obama's plan to thwart any Iranian long-range ballistic missiles that could be tipped with chemical, biological or nuclear warheads. It took on greater significance after Obama scrapped George W. Bush-era plans to deploy a long-range missile defense system in Poland and the Czech Republic. The missile is due to start intercept tests in 2014.

The cooperative development program is rapidly heading for "key milestones at which production planning decisions will need to be made," O'Reilly wrote.
Absent a coproduction deal, the United States will assume it will produce the missiles at a Raytheon Co facility in the United States, he said.
The letter was first reported by Aviation Week. A copy was obtained by Reuters. Rear Admiral Randall Hendrickson, the MDA's deputy director, discussed the contents Monday with reporters during a briefing on the agency's 2012 budget request.
The United States is interested in a coproduction deal with Japan, the top U.S. ally on missile defense, "but we're going to make the decisions that we need to make obviously," he said in a teleconference.
Raytheon, the world's biggest missile maker, is cooperating on the project with Japan's Mitsubishi Heavy Industries. Neither company responded to requests for comment. The Japanese embassy in Washington had no comment.
O'Reilly in his letter sought to clarify Japan's stand on the Block IIA's availability for transfer to other nations that might want to acquire it.
"It is essential that Japan and the United States expedite our efforts to reach an understanding in which Japan assures the United States that Japan has a policy and established procedures to approve third-party sales and transfers of missile defense technical data and equipment," he wrote.
Riki Ellison, head of the Missile Defense Advocacy Alliance, a grass-roots activist group, said a preliminary design review had found shortcomings with the Block IIA's nose cone and propulsion among other problems. He cited people involved in the U.S. missile defense effort as his source.
The new missile will include larger second- and third-stage rocket motors and a larger warhead to provide a greater area of defense against ballistic missile threats. The missile is to be deployed at sea and ashore, including in Poland. (Reporting by Jim Wolf; Editing by Phil Berlowitz)

Japan stealth jet prototype set to fly in 2014



Japan is looking to join the United States, China and Russia with a stealth fighter that senior Japanese air force officials say can be ready for a prototype test flight in just three years, significantly upping the ante in the intensifying battle for air superiority in the Pacific.


TOKYO — Japan is looking to join the United States, China and Russia with a stealth fighter that senior Japanese air force

officials say can be ready for a prototype test flight in just three years, significantly upping the ante in the intensifying battle for air superiority in the Pacific.
The prototype will likely be able to fly in 2014, Lt. Gen. Hideyuki Yoshioka, director of air systems development at Japan's Ministry of Defense, said in an interview with The Associated Press.
He said Japan has put 39 billion yen ($473 million) into the project since 2009, after it became clear the United States was not likely to sell it the F-22 "Raptor" - America's most advanced fighter jet - because of a congressional export ban.
"We are two years into the project, and we are on schedule," Yoshioka said Monday.
Yoshioka stressed that a successful test flight of the prototype, dubbed "Shinshin," or "Spirit," does not mean Japan will immediately start producing stealth aircraft. The prototype is designed to test advanced technologies, and if it is successful the government will decide in 2016 how to proceed.
Japan is feeling the pressure of a regional dogfight over fighter superiority.
"If the countries surrounding Japan have stealth capabilities, Japan will need to develop those capabilities itself to ensure our own defense," said Col. Yoshikazu Takizawa of the Defense Ministry's Technical Research and Development Institute.
Japan relies to a large degree for its defense on its alliance with the United States, which has a significant number of fighters and other aircraft, along with some 50,000 troops, stationed around the Japanese archipelago.
But that alliance, and Japan's relatively deep pockets, did not prove convincing enough for Tokyo to get the coveted F-22. Congress repeatedly squashed the idea due to fears that the F-22 contained too much secret technology to share with even Washington's closest friends.
"Japan wanted the F-22, but Congress didn't agree to that," Yoshioka said. "We realized that it was important for us to develop our domestic capabilities."
China and Russia, meanwhile, have made great strides toward perfecting advanced stealth fighters that could rival the F-22, out-fly Japan's aircraft and - coupled with other rapid advances now under way, particularly by China's navy - tip the regional balance of power.
China surprised experts when it sent a stealth fighter, the Chengdu J-20, up for a test flight in January during a high-profile visit to Beijing by U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates

The J-20 resembles the F-22 in many respects and has caused a great deal of consternation among U.S. and Japanese military planners because its development appears to be going faster than forecast. Its first flight came amid rising nervousness over Beijing's heavy defense spending, overall military modernization and increasingly assertive stance on territorial issues.
Though the J-20 is still years away from combat readiness, it could complicate efforts to control potential conflicts over Taiwan or North Korea and dramatically improve China's air defenses.
Russia's new fighter, the Sukhoi T-50, took to the air last year. It is being jointly developed with India's air force. The T-50 is seen not only as a boost to Russian air power - which is of concern to Japan because of a lingering dispute over islands both claim in the north Pacific - but also as a strong indication that it wants to sell more top-of-the-line fighters abroad.
Japan's own air force is rapidly aging.
Tokyo wants to replace its old F-4EJ and F-15 fighters with more current aircraft, most likely the U.S.-built F-35 Joint Strike Aircraft or F/A-18, or the Eurofighter "Typhoon." A much-delayed decision worth billions of dollars on which plane it will select is expected soon.
Japan's ATD-X program - the acronym stands for advanced technologies demonstrator - is not aimed at supplanting those acquisition plans. Instead, a domestically made stealth fighter would provide an alternative for a third fighter Japan uses - the domestically produced F-2.
Officials stress that it also is crucial for Japan to hone the ability of its engineers to build a state-of-the-art fighter if foreign sources refuse to sell - like Washington did with the F-22.
"It is extremely important to maintain and improve domestic fighter production and technology bases," the Defense Ministry said in an outline of the ATD-X program released in late 2009, when development began in earnest.
Another big consideration is money.
The Defense Ministry expects the economic impact of domestic research, development and production to reach 8.3 trillion yen ($101 billion) and create 240,000 jobs.

Massive tsunami submerges towns, washes away houses, cars


TOKYO (Kyodo) -- The strongest recorded earthquake to hit Japan rocked the northeastern coast Friday, triggering a series of tsunami including a 10-meter wall of water that submerged residential areas and farms with muddy streams and washed away scores of people, vehicles and boats in fields and ports in the region.
The 10-meter tsunami was observed at Sendai port in Sendai, Miyagi Prefecture, at around 3:55 p.m. after the quake with a magnitude of 8.8 rocked the region, local police said.
A tsunami expert at the government-affiliated Port and Airport Research Institute described the tsunami following the 2:46 p.m. quake as "one of the highest and widest in terms of areas of devastation in the nation's history."
Shigeo Takahashi, senior researcher at the institute, said, "It's a tsunami of a once-in-a-century scale."
The strong quake and a series of aftershocks prompted the Japan Meteorological Agency to issue a series of tsunami warnings and advisories covering the whole coast of Japan.
The agency warned of huge tsunami in the Pacific coastal region from Hokkaido in northern Japan to Tokushima Prefecture in western Japan on Friday, following the 2:46 p.m. quake which measured the highest level of 7 on the Japanese seismic intensity scale, and issued a tsunami advisory for areas on the Sea of Japan coast in the Kinki and Chugoku regions in western Japan early Saturday.
It also advised residents in Pacific coastal areas to move to higher ground and stay away from the sea.
The agency called for the public to stay alert over the next month for aftershocks that could register a magnitude of 7 or more and trigger tsunami.
On Friday, the Defense Ministry said around 1,800 houses in the city of Minamisoma in Fukushima Prefecture were found to have been devastated.
TV footage showed quake-triggered tsunami causing the Natori River in Sendai to swell in spots near its mouth and a wide, muddy stream from the river rapidly moving to submerge a number of houses and buildings in residential areas and fields nearby, leveling everything in its path and hitting boats, containers, vehicles and a massive amount of lumber near the river.
After the tsunami, around 200 to 300 bodies were washed ashore in Sendai's Wakabayashi Ward. Officials of the ward facing the Pacific Ocean said almost all of the approximately 1,200 households within a district where a tsunami alert had been issued were affected by a tsunami.
At least two Japan Coast Guard patrol boats of the 2nd Coast Guard Regional Headquarters in Shiogama in the prefecture were also washed away following a tsunami, while a fishing boat with nine crew members was struck by a tidal wave, leaving four of them, all Indonesian nationals, missing, coast guard officials said.
Other footage showed more than 20 cars and containers being washed into the sea when a tsunami hit Kamaishi port.
The National Police Agency said the area of tsunami devastation in Iwate Prefecture, also in northeastern Japan, has spread to include Kamaishi, Miyako and Iwaizumi, while quite a number of people have died or are missing following a tsunami in the coastal town of Yamada in the prefecture, where many houses were washed away.
According to the Miyagi prefectural government, 50 teachers and workers at Kesennuma Koyo Prefectural Senior High School are stranded in a school building which was flooded to its fourth floor after a tsunami hit the area.
The government also said 50 percent of the city of Higashimatsushima in the prefecture has been submerged and many residents have been left on the roofs of their homes while many buildings are on fire in the city.
The Ibaraki prefectural police said three people were carried away by tsunami while watching the ocean from their home in the eastern prefecture, while the Miyagi police said a ship carrying 100 people was washed away by tsunami.
Meanwhile, the Fire and Disaster Management Agency said about 300 buildings were washed away by tsunami in Ofunato, Iwate Prefecture.
The Sendai airport authority in Miyagi Prefecture said the airport's runways were submerged by tidal waves. The Air Self-Defense Force's Matsushima Air Base in Miyagi was inundated with seawater, damaging 18 F-2 fighters and a number of other aircraft possibly permanently, the Defense Ministry said.
A 7.3-meter tsunami was also observed in Soma port in Fukushima Prefecture and elsewhere, the meteorological agency said, adding a 4.1-meter tsunami was observed in Kamaishi port in Iwate Prefecture.
The city government of Soma said it had confirmed that tsunami surged to around 4 to 5 kilometers inland from the coast.
The Tokyo metropolitan government said it has shut 19 of its floodgates to prepare for possible tsunami.
Meanwhile, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Hawaii said a tsunami warning was in effect for more than 50 countries and regions on the Pacific coast including Russia, Taiwan, New Zealand, Chile, Marcus Island and the Northern Marianas, while weather agencies in the Philippines, Indonesia, Australia, Papua New Guinea, Mexico, Panama and Peru also issued similar warnings.
Tsunami from the quake reached countries and regions in the Pacific basin including the state of Hawaii, three islets in the Kuril Islands, including four Russian-held islands claimed by Japan, and the Philippines.

Japan: aerospace survives the flood
By Greg Waldron

On 11 March the sleepy Japanese airport at Sendai was the focus of the world. Aerial footage from Japanese television showed a tsunami of muddy seawater and debris, unleashed by a 9.0-magnitude offshore earthquake, sweeping across the airport, flooding runways and taxiways. The airport handles around 40 flights daily, but no commercial aircraft were present when the tsunami hit.

After the water subsided, pictures show the airport's parking lot littered with overturned cars and mud. Airbridges remained attached to the terminal building, although the apron was strewn with trees, vehicles, and other debris. Flightglobal was unable to contact airport officials to learn the true extent of the damage or to ascertain when it aims to reopen.



Aviation services firm Jamco operates two hangars at Sendai that provide maintenance services for small aircraft and business jets. The company also provides fixed-base operations at the airport.

None of the company's Sendai personnel were injured or lost their lives, and its facilities were undamaged by the tsunami, says Jamco. A number of light aircraft and helicopters were affected, but exact figures are unavailable. The company is compiling a report calculating the disaster's impact.

At the nearby Matsushima airbase, more airborne footage shows a Japanese air self-defence force Mitsubishi F-2 fighter jutting from a mud-filled hangar, its trailing surfaces covered with debris. Another F-2 was washed into an office building, its nose lodged in a first floor window.

Reports suggest that up to 18 F-2s could be complete write-offs. If true, this could put yet more urgency behind Japan's plans to replace its ageing McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantoms.

Possible Phantom replacements include the Eurofighter Typhoon and Boeing F-18 E/F Super Hornet. However, given the potential cost of rebuilding parts of the country, there will be questions over where defence procurement sits in the country's list of priorities.

The longer-term impact of the disaster is less certain, although major aerospace firms appear to have escaped unscathed.

Japan's aerospace sector is clustered around the city of Nagoya, on the main island of Honshu and several hundred kilometres from the earthquake's epicentre.

Japan's three first tier aerospace firms Mitsubishi, Kawasaki and Fuji Heavy Industries all have major roles in the Boeing 787 programme, and all have 787-related production facilities in Nagoya, as do the subcontractors that supply them.

The city was largely unaffected by the disaster, and some airlines, such as Lufthansa, even diverted flights to Nagoya's Chubu Centrair airport, which says it was undamaged by the earthquake. Chubu Centrair is also the primary airport that supports 747 Dreamlifter deliveries of 787 structures to Boeing's Everett, Washington and Charleston, South Carolina facilities.

In the immediate aftermath of the disaster, Boeing's 787 programme chief Scott Francher says there was "no major disruption" to suppliers following the earthquake and tsunami.

Additionally, Francher said the company's 787 Production Integration Centre in Everett had been monitoring the situation in Japan from the beginning of the catastrophe.

Fuji says its Nagoya-based 787 facility was unaffected and suffered no power cuts. Fuji's Utsonomiya components factory, however, is closer to the disaster area. It was undamaged, but continues to suffer periodic, scheduled power cuts lasting up to 6h a day.

Kawasaki and Mitsubishi say their plants in Nagoya are unaffected by the earthquake and are not suffering any production disruption.

Boeing to Upgrade Japan AWACS Aircraft



Boeing has been awarded a contract to modify four Japanese airborne warning and control system (AWACS) aircraft on behalf of the Japan Air Defence Force.
The $35.6m contract is a fixed-price contract modification awarded by the US Aerial Air Surveillance Systems Division.
An AWACS system is a high altitude airborne radar system designed to detect friendly and hostile aircraft.
The system is used for defensive and offensive air operations, surveillance, command and control and battle management (C2BM) functions.
Work will be performed at the company's facility in Kent, Washington, US.

Airspace border tensions soar / ASDF scrambled 386 times to ward off foreign aircraft in FY10



The Yomiuri Shimbun





The number of Air Self-Defense Force sorties to intercept foreign aircraft flying near Japanese airspace jumped to 386 last fiscal year, up 29 percent from fiscal 2009, according to the Defense Ministry.
In the past two decades, the 2010 figure was the second-largest after the 488 sorties in fiscal 1991.
ASDF jets were scrambled to ward off planes from China 96 times, an increase of about 2.5 times from the previous fiscal year, and Russian aircraft on 264 occasions, an increase of 30 percent.
According to the ministry's Joint Staff Office, Russian aircraft accounted for 68 percent of the total number and Chinese planes 25 percent. Taiwan jets comprised 2 percent, or seven instances, while planes of other nationalities together made up 5 percent, or 19 incidents.
Last fiscal year, there were no instances of North Korean aircraft approaching Japanese airspace, although the ASDF scrambled on eight occasions against that country's jets in fiscal 2009.
The ministry said no foreign aircraft actually violated Japanese airspace in fiscal 2010.
However, Chinese military planes flew past the median line between Japan and China and came close to Japanese airspace over the Senkaku Islands in Okinawa Prefecture for the first time on March 2. ASDF jets were scrambled after the Chinese aircraft--two Y-8 surveillance planes--were spotted flying over the East China Sea toward the Nansei Islands and approaching a point about 50 kilometers from Japanese airspace.
Meanwhile, two Russian aircraft--Sukhoi-27 and AN-12 fighters--came close to Japanese territory on March 21.
During the period after the March 11 Great East Japan Earthquake through March 31, Russian aircraft were spotted 14 times and Chinese jets four times. This is little different from before the disaster, observers said.
The number of ASDF intercepts peaked in fiscal 1984 at 944, after which the figures declined. But the number rose again for two consecutive years in fiscal 2009 and fiscal 2010.
The increase in sorties to ward off foreign aircraft approaching the nation's airspace appears to correlate with the Democratic Party of Japan's 2009 ascent to power and subsequent tensions in the Japan-U.S. defense relationship.
A Defense Ministry senior official said, "[Foreign countries] might have been testing Japan's defense capability as they regarded Japan-U.S. relations as weakened."(Apr. 30, 2011)

F-X Bidders Could Gain From Tsunami Damage





BEIJING — Enlargement of the Japanese F-X fighter program is under consideration as the repair of all 18 Mitsubishi Heavy Industries F-2B trainers damaged in the March 11 tsunami looks increasingly unlikely.
The defense ministry’s initial assessment — that it will be lucky to repair as many as three of the aircraft — also seems to raise the possibility of the F-X program being pursued more urgently. Lockheed Martin, Boeing and the Eurofighter consortium are competing for the order for 40-50 fighters, with the prospect of further production after the initial requirement — replacement of F-4EJ Phantoms — is met.
Just pulling apart the damaged 18 F-2Bs and examining them will cost ¥13.6 billion ($166 million), the ministry tells the Asahi newspaper.
The air force had 33 F-2Bs before 18 were submerged at Matsushima air base by the tsunami, according to Forecast International data (Aerospace DAILY, March 18). So repairs, if any, will leave only 15-18 available.
As a result, the country appears to have four choices: accept a reduction in aircraft numbers, build replacement F-2Bs, acquire Boeing F-15Ds from U.S. stocks, or add units to the F-X program.
Although there is no official comment on the matter, neither of the first two options looks easy.
Since the damaged aircraft are all two-seaters, the training fleet has taken a heavy hit; restoring its numbers should be a priority.
And while Mitsubishi Heavy Industries is still building the last few F-2s before closing its production line this year, its suppliers have already stopped making parts and systems.
So placing an order for more aircraft would now be unusually costly — even if Japan wanted to spend more money on the 1990s model instead of moving on to a new type.
Indeed, the cost of restarting parts production is probably a reason behind the ministry’s bleak assessment, although it could presumably look at using some of its stock of spare parts to refit the damaged aircraft.

Japan may drop F-35 from shortlist of next mainstay fighter -Kyodo



May 20 (Reuters) - Japan may drop the F-35 stealth fighter from a shortlist for the country's next generation fighter due to a sharp delay in the plane's development plan, Kyodo agency reported on Friday citing diplomatic and defense sources.
The operational test of the radar-evading F-35 -- being developed by Lockheed Martin Corp and Britain, Italy, Netherlands, Turkey, Canada, Australia, Denmark and Norway -- is not expected to begin until 2017 and this would not satisfy Japan's desire to receive delivery of the next fighter by March that year, Kyodo said.
The development of the multi role F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, due to replace various aircraft in the military fleets of both the United States and its partners, has been hampered by delays and ballooning costs. [ID:nN19138761]
If Japan were to drop the F-35 its shortlist will be narrowed down to Boeing Co's F/A-18 Super Hornet and the Eurofighter Typhoon. Eurofighter is a four-nation consortium of EADS , representing Germany and Spain, Britain's BAE Systems and Italy's Finmeccanica .
The Eurofighter Typhoon, used by NATO nations and Saudi Arabia, would be Japan's first European fighter jet.
But the sources reckon that Japan, which has emphasised coordination with U.S. forces, could pick the F/A-18, Kyodo said.
Japan is looking to make the selection at the end of the year. The new fighter will replace Japan's aging F-4 Phantoms.

$36 billlion submarine project

Construction of 12 new submarines will go ahead in Adelaide despite the uncertainty cast by cuts in the Federal budget.

Defence materiel minister Jason Clare says these 12 new Collins Class submarines will not be scrapped after $2.7 billion was cut last month.
The $36 billion project will replace the current six current Collins Class submarines serving in the Royal Australian Navy.
However, speculation over construction of a fourth Air Warfare Destroyer has been quashed by Minister Clare.
'There is no bid for a fourth AWD,' Mr Clare said. 'The Howard government approved the construction of three ships and we are building three ships.'Premier Mike Rann welcomed the confirmation by the Federal Government.

Disasters May Help Redefine Japan’s Self-Defense Forces

At the beginning of the film “ Bokoku no Aegis ” (“Aegis of a Ruined Country”), based on the popular novel by Fukui Haruhito, the special agent of the fictional Japanese defense intelligence agency DAIS reads from the thesis of a murdered naval student: “Aegis: the mythical shield of the god Zeus. A ship armed with the Aegis system is the ultimate defensive weapon but dare we ask: What is the purpose of such a shield?

“If Japan cannot change, it will no longer be worth defending, then Aegis will be nothing more than a shield for a lost nation.”

Its theme seemed to capture the complexities and ambivalence, what Richard Samuels dubbed the “ghost of Yamagata Aritomo,” that stalks the country’s Self Defense Forces and the question of its post-war purpose.

For much of Japan’s post-war era, a subtle artifice was pragmatically utilized to evade an open avowal of the goals and purpose of national security. It was, at its crux, an effort at strategic avoidance that sought to transfer any such reckoning to the distant future. Yet it is the nature of such a policy of evasion that has proven to be ultimately eroding to Japan, for it is forced to seek its identity in reaction to events, rather than in their anticipation, and in the process becomes their prisoner.

The tension and catastrophe of the March 11 triple disaster in Japan shattered what little remained of this ambivalence and artifice, and once more focused attention on the role and purpose of the SDF. It is a question that is necessarily inseparable from the content and form of Japanese power and its relation to balance and equilibrium in East Asia.

The physical and spatial isolation of Japan no longer affords it the margin of protection it relied upon throughout its history. The shield of the United States can no longer obscure the realities of the post-cold war era.

The material, psychological and political limitations of the new era shattered the consensus upon which such illusions were based. This would be the first lesson of the post-cold war era. The second lesson would be that the principles and nature of the legitimacy of post-war security could no longer obscure the crisis of purpose that afflicted the SDF.

The post-cold war transformation of the SDF at once reflected the ascendancy of a more pragmatic and astute calculation of national interest and the long-term implications of relative economic decline. A turbulent decade characterized by natural disaster and the rise of substantive economic, military and political threats had sobered the strategic calculus of what was desirable and indeed possible.

Japanese policy makers moved cautiously and pragmatically to alter the post-war limitations on national security and transform its security alliance with the United States. Each change reflected a shifting assessment of the relative importance of military capability to national power.

It was a success because it was based at once on a misunderstanding and an evasion. A misunderstanding because it continued to cloak Japan’s sustained security evolution in the well-worn garb of “defensive defense” and “comprehensive security” and not as an explicit attempt to rebalance the instruments of Japanese power. And an evasion because it was based on misdirection in order to justify security transformation, highlighting the threat which emanated from the Korean peninsula whilst in content and form it was an unmistakable reaction to the growth of Chinese power.

It has been observed that statesmen cannot choose their policy with the illusion that all options are available; rather the material, psychological and political limitations of the moment serve necessarily as the contours within which policy must be conceived. Yet there are moments when weakness may be turned into renewed strength and purpose.

For just as Yamagata Aritomo and his proteges interpreted the era during and after World War I as an “opportunity,” the triple disaster might similarly provide the impetus for a new definition of Japanese purpose. Such a purpose rests on the construction of a robust and flexible legislative framework for national security that replaces the artifice and evasions that characterized the country’s post-war choices.

Concretely, it entails a reinterpretation of the meaning of “war potential” and revision of the ban on collective security, to permit the SDF to engage in collective action alongside the United States and its regional allies. This would permit Japan to deploy a “full-spectrum” military force configured toward a robust expeditionary and asymmetric capability.

Such operational capabilities would provide Japan with the strategic option to respond rapidly to regional contingencies on the Korean peninsula or further afield to provide disaster relief in Southeast Asia and the Middle East. It would provide it with the capability to assist Asean states if threatened and to forge deeper security partnerships with Australia, India and South Korea. And it would finally replace Japan’s post-war ambivalence and artifice with an active commitment to regional security and prosperity.

An expansive commitment to regional security in content and form provides an answer to the question of the purpose of the post-war armed forces. Its success rests on Japan’s willingness to act as a key component in the revitalization, re-conceptualization and rebalancing of the security order in East Asia.
