 Us amphibious force in Japan doubled, quasi aircraft carrier loaded with F-35B deployed in Japan


Reported that the U.S. New Orleans dock landing ship across the Pacific Ocean, arrived at Sasebo base on December 1. This large amphibious ship with a displacement of 25000 tons, known as all-around player, can carry advanced amphibious assault vehicles, air cushion landing craft and Osprey tilt rotor aircraft to ensure the three-dimensional landing capability of the US Marine Corps. Whats more, the amphibious attack ship America, which has a displacement of 45000 tons and can carry F-35B stealth fighters, will also arrive at the Sasebo base in the near future, and it will become the flagship of the amphibious ship force in the Asia Pacific region. These ships will work with other landing ships currently deployed by Sasebo to provide the most efficient amphibious capability in the Asia Pacific region, the report said.

According to reports, with the addition of these two new warships, the total number of amphibious vessels in the seventh fleet of the US Army will increase from three to five. The change behind is not only the increase in the number of ships, but also the dramatic change in their combat power. The report said that the amphibious ships previously stationed in Japan included the dock landing ship Germantown, Ashland and the new dock landing ship Green Bay of San Antonio. These ships pay more attention to the transport function. When carrying out the landing mission in the high-risk area, they must be strongly protected by their own fleet. This weakness of the old huidebei island class landing ship is particularly prominent. The coming amphibious assault ship America not only has a larger tonnage, but also can rely on a strong air assault capability to carry out a deep strike from sea to land, with a large-scale helicopter landing vertically.

In October this year, the Pentagon released a picture of the amphibious attack ship America carrying 13 F-35B fighters in the East Pacific region to demonstrate its strong air combat capability. US media claimed that the drill confirmed that the F-35B, which carries the Marine Corps, can quickly transform amphibious assault ships into light aircraft carriers. The F-35Bs powerful air combat capability makes the actual combat power of the U.S. far exceed that of most light aircraft carriers. According to reports, because the number of U.S. aircraft carriers is difficult to support the Pentagons global deployment needs, the U.S. military intends to carry F-35B fighters through large amphibious attack ships to undertake some carrier missions. In addition to the latest U.S.A., the eight older hornet class amphibious attack ships will also be adapted to take off and land F-35B fighters.

Japans Kyodo news agency said that compared with the previous deployment of Japans wasp amphibious attack ship, the United States has a wider deck and more comprehensive hangar facilities. Through optimized design, the amphibious attack ship America can support the simultaneous operation of F-35B and Osprey. The Osprey is responsible for assault landing and the F-35B provides air cover. Japan believes that the U.S. mission to Japan aims at North Koreas nuclear missile development and Chinas maritime activities, and strengthens its air attack capability in the Asia Pacific region.

The U.S. Navys actions against China and Russia are more than that. The U.S. Navys maritime systems command awarded General Dynamics electric ship company the largest submarine contract ever: nine new improved Virginia class attack nuclear submarines worth 22.2 billion US dollars, defense news said Wednesday. Eight of the new submarines will be equipped with additional missile compartments to improve their long-range missile strike capability, the report said. The U.S. Navy believes that the rapid modernization of Chinese and Russian underwater forces poses a strong challenge to the U.S. Navy, Forbes said Wednesday. The Russian navy has been developing more lethal advanced submarines while abandoning the construction of new large surface ships; with quieter design and the deployment of long-range submarine launched missiles, the threat of Chinese submarines has increased 10 times compared with 1996.
