            The 2 sq of F-35Bs won't receive a permanent station on the Kaga and Izumo. They will start in Nyutabaru until Mageshima is up and running. Any sq not deployed on Izumo or Kaga will stay at Mageshima.

                >has the JSDF mentioned how the F-35 airframes will be allocated?
                I'm pretty sure it's just 2 squadrons which fall under the JASDF command even on Izumo and Kaga although it will be much less of an issue now that Japan has it's newest joint command system in place. At the very least it's confirmed that a temp squadron will be in Nyutabaru this year with 6 airframes under the 5th AW until Mageshima is finished and more airframes are delivered.

          More like the late 1940s as they were already shipping tanks to arm Japan's "police force" by 1953. It was unironically one of the most moronic and short sighted choices made as a surrender agreement up there will all the shit that was forced on post-WWI Germany. It will always be tragically hilarious to me that 2 of the most praised Generals of WW2 spent every day from 1946 till their deaths going "oh god oh frick we fought the wrong people". Too bad your average university of reddit "WWII historian" stops paying attention after Sept 2nd 1945 because "WWII ended".

            Yeah. The Americans even requested deployment of the National Police Reserve to Korea which Yoshida flat denied, as he knew that there's no way Koreans would be happy about Japanese soldiers treading on their soil again nor would the Japanese populace appreciate the involvement. So former IJN crews got contracted to run minesweeping operations in the Korean War. They were meant to be far from the front but they were actually deployed to battle zones in some cases. Then when one ship was sunk a group of captains threatened a bloodless mutiny. They got fired and the Japanese and US governments swept it under the rug.

              Nah it wasn't even like they thought the war in Europe and the Pacific were justified, but also we should have done the same in China and Russia. They straight up just think we killed the wrong people. Patton called the Germans the last decent people in Europe while MacArthur said he was never consulted on the atomic bombing of Japan and thought it was entirely unnecessary, but wholeheartedly pushed for the glassing of China and Russia.
              Both were subsequently fired for taking these positions, yet in America they are seen as patriots of WW2. The idea of assisting the communists in any war was incredibly unpopular beforehand and incredibly unpopular afterwards, yet we are supposed to believe that for a brief 7 years the communists were actually the good guys and supporting them was right, but then the magically went back to being evil the moment Germany surrendered.

                But it was not unpopular during the war, that's the important thing. Orwell wrote about this during the war in Britain where people became pro-Russian once Barbarossa started, and the only exception were Catholic papers that, I reckon, were read by Irish Catholics who lived in Britain (but the Catholics also split over it). People can flip on a dime when a war starts. Look at American israelites who were marching in BLM protests in 2020, and then once Hamas attacked Israel, they started flipping channels to Fox News and then waylaid that one incompetent congressman in New York who a lot of them had voted for in 2020.

                Quite so, and given recent events, It's particularly inexcusable for anyone online today to be ignorant of that.
                In addition to the Israel example you mention, there was also a massive change in sentiment w/r/t Ukrainian nationalism generally, and Azov particularly, when Russia invaded. One day the left is righteously cancelling Nazi memoirs, the next day Azov is heroic defenders and Putin was literally Hitler all along.
                Now I hate Russia as much as the next guy, so of course I'm glad they switched; nevertheless it was chilling to watch such an enormous mob about-face so quickly.

          USNI follows the official English designation of DD (including DDH and DDG) as destroyers, DE as frigates.
          Jane's Naval Yearbook is more or less the same, but treats full-flight deck DDHs as helicopter carriers.

          JSMDF nomenclature also includes CVH (helicopter carrier) in addition to DDH. Jane's current classification is gonna look dumb if japs ever build a CVH. But I wouldn't hold my breath, they first had that idea in 1960s...

      > Saratoga, placed close to Baker, sank 7.5 hours after the underwater shock wave opened up leaks in the hull. Immediately after the shock wave passed, the water wave lifted the stern 43 feet (13 m) and the bow 29 feet (8.8 m), rocked the ship side to side, and crashed over her, sweeping all five moored airplanes off the flight deck and knocking the stack over onto the deck. She remained upright and outside the spray column, but close enough to be drenched by radioactive water from the collapsing cauliflower head as well as by the base surge. Blandy ordered tugs to tow the carrier to Enyu island for beaching, but Saratoga and the surrounding water remained too radioactive for close approach until after she sank. She settled upright on the bottom, with the top of her mast 40 feet (12 m) below the surface.

      > USS Independence survived Able with spectacular damage to the flight deck. She was moored far enough away from Baker to avoid further physical damage, but was severely contaminated.

      Crossroads Baker proved that a nuke detonating within 500m of a capital ship would likely damage it significantly, irradiate it, and probably capsize it.
      The consequence is that both NATO and the USSR aimed for this CEP figure, and expected to use nuclear weapons against ships for the longest time, until proper precision antiship missiles such as Exocet and Harpoon were more available. Which was at the very end of the Cold War.

      IMHO that's why early Soviet antiship cruise missiles such as the ones that hit the Kramatosk mall display this degree of (in)accuracy.

    According to Peter Zeihan, the most respected thinker on /k/, the RN has a less capable carrier force and projection ability than the JMSDF

    Zeihan on the JMSDF:
    >Japan doesn’t only build but also designs its own naval vessels and has since the 1880s. Japan’s navy is easily the second-most powerful expeditionary force in the world…the entire Japanese fleet is blue-water capable.

    >It is Japan, not China, that boasts the world’s second most capable navy. It is that navy that is second only to the United States in the number of aircraft carriers floated (Japan claims those carriers are only for helicopters but that is, if you’ll forgive the repeat, just some more PR bullshit).

    >Japan…has four aircraft carrier battle groups that can make it that far. The point is less that the Japanese would use carriers for convoy duty, and more that the Japanese could scrub Chinese naval power out of existence from Hormuz to Malacca with a minimum of fuss.

    Zeihan on the RN:
    >At each step the Queen Elizabeth carrier program had to re-justify itself and fight for funding anew. And now, with Brexit looming, they’re having to slim the rest of the naval force to keep their supercarrier program on track.

    >Which means the Brits no longer have sufficient ships to protect their new supers once they are fully operational.

    >The British Navy has atrophied so much for so long that it can no longer assemble two credible battlegroups and still defend Great Britain itself.

    >For the Queen Elizabeths’ deployments, this is nothing short of a Charlie Foxtrot. The new British supercarriers dare not venture further away from shore than the reach of British air power, whether that air power be launched from the United Kingdom itself or from the territory of a trusted ally. Support ships can certainly be built up more quickly (and cheaply) than the supercarriers themselves, but ships don’t grow on trees. This will be the state of the British Navy for at least a decade. Probably two.

      First, nice digits.
      He's right that Japan is likely more capable but makes critical errors.
      >made and designed their own vessels since the 1880s
      No, they were mostly provided by UK and USA at that time. It wasn't until the 1910s they really started making their own stiff
      >four aircraft carrier battle groups
      Two at a push. They have only adapted two carriers, and they have only ordered 3 and a half squadrons of carrier capable jets, (not even two carriers worth) none of which have been delivered yet. They are strictly STOVL carrier, without even a ramp so their takeoff payload means that they're gimped compared to a proper carrier jet.

        >so their takeoff payload means that they're gimped compared to a proper carrier jet.
        They've got aerial refuelling capability and will likely have the ability to take off with a full loadout and get a top off in the air. Though I doubt they'll bother in most cases as coordinating a multi-hour mission over water for tankers isn't a cakewalk, I'm sure they'll still practice it occasionally though.

        Maybe do training with US tanker assets in the region too.

    Also, speaking of George Orwell, that influenced 1984 where "we've always been at war with Eurasia." There are three big superpower blocs in the 1984 planet and they flip sides to fight each other but ensuring that nobody comes out on top, and the propaganda deletes any memory that today's ally was yesterday's enemy.

        I thought there was, or at least there wasn't a war that was intended to be won, but to burn up human labor power through military resources which are just blown up. What was odd about him is that he depicted this nightmare vision of the future based in part on his experiences with war propaganda and rationing, but he pressed hard for rationing on the BBC during the war, and would write about "well... it's strange for me to say this, but I hope Stalin wins this one... for England." Even though the Stalinists killed his friends and was obviously, to him anyways, a totalitarian dictatorship.
