    @Gargantua:

    What Japan needs is a galaxy class federation starship.

    Most sensible thing that has been said here.

    I was almost the third comment on this thread, but decided not to because I didn’t think it was going anywhere interesting. Boy was I wrong…  :roll:

    Maybe even a mecha?  A Coyote Tango?



  • @rjpeters70:

    Why the Japanese haven’t built Mecha’s by now is beyond me.

    Or, at least a Mechagodzilla…

    That’s funny. I got the “Monster Zero March” stuck in my head after looking at the Japanese navy ships in this thread.



  • Thanks!

    IL, you started this one. You showed up, without any evidence, and said, “It’s a carrier”. Then you started trolling anyone who disagreed.

    No that is not how it went. I posted this with a picture of the vessel.

    This is not a destroyer.

    Then Gargantua posted gibberish post after post in a rude and typical fashion of which said nothing to my point. It does not look like a Destroyer and nobody needs to take exception to that.



  • Ok, so here’s the answer…  The design of it is a Helo Carrier that is primarily used for Submarine warfare (Koreans, Chinese, Russians in mind). In addition to that capability, it carriers the typical defensive weapons with CIWS, torpedoes, and an AEGIS like system.  It can also be used for troop transport.  This is not designed to replace it’s existing DD fleet.  This is more of a command ship, which the LCC 19 Blue Ridge and Mount Whitney (if she even leaves Gaeta, I have no idea) now serve as…just its 50 years upgraded from the Blue Ridge…or as we say in the Navy, late 1990’s technology!  😄
