Photo Journal: Double defense


The Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force's "aircraft carrier-type" escort vessel "Kaga," foreground, is seen from a Mainichi Shimbun helicopter in Yokohama after the vessel was put into commission on March 22, 2017. The flat-top helicopter destroyer is the country's second ship of its kind, measuring some 248 meters in length, after the destroyer "Izumo," which is seen at rear in this photo. Kaga can load nine patrol helicopters and has a flight deck for aircrafts including the Osprey. (Mainichi)
