That #Japanesemilitary shit

I got her broken down about as far as I will take her. Not much residue, but this old girl saw a lot of neglect some years ago. There is a fair amount of pitting under parts of the furniture. She's solid, though. #wwii #ww2 #worldwarii #worldwar2 #military #militarysurplus #militaryhistory #militarycollection #guns #gunsofinstagram #igmilitia #boltaction #rifle #arisaka #arisakatype99 #type99 #japan #japanesearmy #japanesemilitary #milsurpguys .

"🇯🇵 Izumo-class helicopter carrier/light aircraft carrier" -------------------------------------------- First Japanese aircraft carriers since WW2 ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• The 🇯🇵Izumo-class helicopter carrier/light aircraft carrier is a type of new helicopter carrier/light aircraft carrier class constructed for the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force. The ships of this class are the largest surface combatants of the JMSDF, taking over the mantle currently held by the Hyūga-class helicopter carriers. -------------------------------------------- The ship carries up to 28 aircraft. However, only 7 ASW helicopters and 2 search and rescue helicopters are used for the initial aircraft complement. For other operations, 400 troops and 50 3.5 ton trucks can also be carried. The flight deck has 5 helicopter landing spots that allow simultaneous landings or take-offs. The ship is equipped with 2 Phalanx CIWS and 2 SeaRAM for its defense. The carriers of this class were initially intended to replace the two ships of the Shirane class, which were originally scheduled to begin decommissioning in 2014. -------------------------------------------- Some design features were intended to support fixed wing aircraft such as the Bell-Boeing V-22 Osprey and Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II, although the JMSDF has not mentioned the possibility of introducing carrier-based fixed-wing aircraft. The ship has neither a "ski-jump" nor a catapult, typical features for launching fixed-wing aircraft. If the Izumo class were to operate fixed-wing aircraft, they would be limited to those capable of STOVL (short take-off, vertical landing) operations; Japan has acquired the F-35A for use by the JASDF, but has not indicated whether it would purchase the STOVL F-35B version. Even if they did, the ship's lack of a ski jump limiting the plane's range and payload, lack of specialized landing pads to withstand the F-35B's immense heat generated upon vertical thrusts, and small space to accommodate very many planes would make it a poor "offensive" aircraft carrier.

Thank you to the Japanese Military for the giving us a tour of the JS Harusame ship.

Sporting the latest @lvrsrlntcs !
