Hot off the press.

The JMSDF is ordering 42 F-35Bs for operating off its Izumo class Helicopter Destroyers.

I am guessing that somebody will be having fun with that in a couple of years.

Small correction. All indications right now are that JASDF will actually own the aircraft even though they will be operated off JMSDF ships.

It makes some sense that was since JMSDF has no tactical jet experience or training program.

Fair enough. I made the assumption that it would be the JMSDF but Brent has more of a focus on Japanese things than myself. So I will go with that until the existence of a stealthy ninja marine corps gets revealed.
