The Air Self-Defense Force is short of people, and hundreds of liftoffs are just to deal with Chinese fighters. Expert:Be a thief
After the Second World War, the United States and Japan maintained a high degree of defense cooperation. Such cooperation is not limited to the permanent military presence of the United States by sending a large number of military forces in Japan. Japan is also highly consistent with the United States in the field of weapons and equipment. At present, Japan’s Air Self-Defense Force a large number of weapons and equipment for the Maritime Self-Defense Force and the Land Self-Defense Force originate from the United States. Self-Defense Forces have a large part of their weapons and equipment that have begun to appear to varying degrees of aging.
As early as the 1980s, Japan began to sell large quantities from the United States The introduction of the F-15J heavy fighter, which also made the strength of the Japan Air Self-Defense Force quickly ahead of China’s navy and air force, when the Chinese navy and air force used a large number of J-8II fighters are simply unable to fight against these F-15J heavy fighters. It was not until the 1990s that China introduced the Su 27 and Su 30MKK fighters one after another. Nearly 30 years later, the Japan Air Self-Defense Force is still These F-15Jheavy fighters are in use, and China’s navy and air force have carried out multiple rounds of refitting, domestic J-11S heavy fighters, J-16 Heavy fighters have begun to equip naval and air forces in batches.
From a set of data released by the Japanese Ministry of Defense recently In the past two months, the Japan Air Self-Defense Force has made a total of 194 emergency missions. It is worth noting that the Air Self-Defense Force has made 131 emergency lifts against Chinese Air Force and naval aviation fighters, judging from the distribution of the Air Self-Defense Forces, these fighters are mainly derived from the South West Division of the Air Self-Defense Force, so it seems that whenever our sea and air forces go to During the airspace in southwestern Taiwan, the Japan Air Self-Defense Forces stationed at Naha bases F-15J fighters will carry out emergency launches, and these fighters Normally, it will not make close contact with China’s military aircraft, but hover in the designated airspace. Once the Chinese military aircraft comes closer, or goes out of the first island chain, the F-15J fighter will approach and conduct full-range tracking and surveillance.
The frequent emergency dispatch has also made the Air Self-Defense Force feel sleepy After all, the life of these old F-15J fighters is on the verge of going online. Although Japan has carried out many life extensions, this does not change the fact that the aircraft is old. The Japan Air Self-Defense Force has appeared many times because of the old aircraft. The accidents caused, even the F-15 fighters were directly disintegrated in the sky. The United States has always claimed that the F-15 fighter is a fighter that has never been shot down. However, the repeated accidents have also caused the F-15 fighter to lose. Full face.
From the current flight path of China’s aviation, basically All are in the airspace of southwestern Taiwan or the international neutral airspace of the first island chain, and they have not entered the so-called airspace of Japan. Some experts pointed out that the performance of the Air Self-Defense Forces’ aggressiveness is also a guilty conscience. In the future, our navy and air force fighters will also be frequent Appears in this airspace, Japanese habits are just fine. Text/ZH.
