    JMSDF Submarines moored at night at Kure Naval Base, Hiroshima

    [​IMG]
    Photographer: Kenichi Nobusue, dated 4th of May, 2008. It's a bit hard to tell, but I think the two submarines in front are Harushio-class, and the third one behind them is an Oyashio-class. The Harushio is the oldest of three submarine classes currently serving in the JMSDF. The Oyashio is the second. The ship in the back is the submarine rescue ship JS Chihaya (ASR-403):

    The Japanese are the leaders in many fields but not defense. Think about that. It is out of incompetence - fear from others.

    And to move the Japanese to strengthen its resolve to have more defense preparedness - is that wise thinking from others.

    Its good India has good understanding and potential to expand Japan relationship be it in defense and non-defense areas irrespective of what others say and think (but it helps if there is conformity and motivation by the important state(s)).

    Showing off the striking color scheme, a JASDF F-2 taxies on the apron of Nagoya - Komaki (Airport codes NKM / RJNA). The F-2 is an enlarged F-16 built for Japan only, being the primary anti-ship fighter in service to replace the aging F-1. Capable of carrying up to four anti-ship missiles, it has nearly double the load capacity of the aircraft that it replaced.
