JSDF Conducting Land Based Exercise.
Successor of Type-90 MBT
JGSDF Type 87, at 1.6 billion yen per unit, is world's most expensive SPAAG. It shares the same 35mm gun with Germany's Gepard.
Despite its apparent level of sophistication, Type 87 integrates no missiles. Its radar suite and fire control system had so much growth potential to accommodate a Tunguska M1-like hybrid design, but Japan turned to Type 93 short-range SAM instead in search for another independent set of organic air defense.
As always great find, Your a Legend Kunal!

It is impressive that Japanese train so extensively for a (till now) non-existential threat huh? Well now looking at Senkaku Island problem, they will need all this training. If we take this into perspective, we should be armed to what level Chinese are armed today in quantity and Israeli level in quality.
