【Japan’s Mitsui E&S Launches ‘Kumano’ 】
From YouTube / Quote / Reprint / Japanese shipyard Mitsui E & S Shipbuilding Co., Ltd in Okayama launched on 19 November 2020 a new type of next generation frigate for the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF) known as 30FFM.
The vessel is named after the Kumano river in the Kii Peninsula of central Japan. The shipyard will now proceed to the fitting out stage of the frigate, ahead of its delivery set for 2021.
“Kumano” is actually the second vessel of the series. The first-in-class ship is still under construction at Mitsubishi Heavy Industries in Nagasaki.
For the record, MHI won a contract from the Japanese MoD in August 2018 for the production of the first two frigates. Mitsui E&S received a subcontracting order from MHI for the construction of the second frigate. Kumano is the company’s 2050th ship.
Taking a close look at Japan’s latest frigate, Naval News can tell that stealth was a key requirement of the design and was pushed to the limit with some very sleek and modern lines. 30FMM will act as a UUV and USV mothership but all the launch and recovery systems are hidden inside its main structure, behind large doors which are flush with the hull. Likewise, most sensors will be integrated on the mast to minimize the radar cross section.
The Imperial Japanese Navy was looking at the potential of submarines！
However, the Imperial Japanese Navy did not make good use of submarines！
It also suffered great damage from attacks by US submarines！
The Japanese reflected！
Postwar Japanese place the highest priority on the balance of power between the shield and the halberd.
