Japan Does Exactly What We Told You it Would Do

What did we say here about 5-yrs ago?
...let's work on some proper fixed wing assets for 'ya ... and you need a half-dozen more.
...and here we are.
There is also a proposal to retrofit its Izumo helicopter carrier into what would in effect be a full-fledged aircraft carrier -- a type of ship the country has not had since World War II. The idea is to have it carry F-35B stealth fighters, which require only a short takeoff and can land vertically. Japan wants to buy more F-35s, including F-35As already deployed domestically.
Good for Japan ... and good for our partnership.

Faster please.
