Japanese missiles take control of the Kuril Islands

The Japanese military announced plans to significantly strengthen the country's anti-ship defense. The official reason is the tightening of control over islands and straits in the South China Sea. However, it should be understood that this Tokyo measure is also associated with a dispute around the Kuril ridge.




The Ministry of Defense of Japan intends to increase the range of anti-ship missiles in the arsenal of the country. As stated in the military department, we are talking about ground-based complexes, without specifying a specific type. However, it is easy to guess that the statement concerned the SSM-2 Type 12 coastal defense system. Adopted only 7 years ago, a missile, as part of a ground-based complex, is capable of hitting an enemy ship at a distance of 200 km. Now they plan to double the maximum range - up to 400 km.

In the coming years, Japan’s anti-ship aircraft will receive the same missiles, which will significantly increase the range of the complex.


Note that SSM-2 Type 12 missiles with extended ranges deployed on the Japanese island of Hokkaido will be able to control the space up to the Kuril island of Urup (including the controversial Iturup, Kunashir, Shikotan) and also cover the southern part of Sakhalin Island.

The deployment of such missiles in close proximity to Russia fits into Tokyo’s external policiesaccording to which he does not recognize the sovereignty of Russia over the "northern territories".

    After Hiroshima and Nagasaki, these warriors do not control their country.

            Fortunately, I served in the Navy of the USSR and Russia for 27 years, and unlike you, I indicate the place
            residence in profile. Shame on Russia? Therefore, keep your reprise for yourself. Sitting on the pot, you will have something to have fun.

              You see, child, I served in the Baltic and the Pacific when you were not in the project (the bud) in the middle of the 20th century. So re-read the reprisals while sitting on the pot, have fun shorter, but be careful not to fall and turn the pot over.

    It's amazing how the Merikans changed or emasculated the brain convolutions of the Japanese in their own way. After all, the Japanese do not even remember what happened to Hiroshima, Nagasaki. After all, the Merikans simply "broke" their honor, dignity and sovereignty, but they doubled their long-standing atrocities against their entourage, that is, the DPRK, and South Korea, China, and Russia.

    Iskanders, Daggers and Zircons from Primorye will easily reach all the Japanese islands. Therefore, there is no need to overload the arms of Sakhalin and the Kuril Islands. Several divisions of DBK Bastion and Ball are quite enough to suppress the landing operation.
    After the "cleansing" of Hokkaido, all the Japs' wishlist concerning the "northern territories" will disappear by themselves ...

    Anti-ship missile. Its specificity is the defeat of surface targets. You can, of course, land and shoot, but the accuracy will not be high.
    Coastal anti-ship systems are designed to protect its coast from attacks from the sea. And certainly not intended to attack the opposite coast.
