Japan To Develop 3,000 Km Long-Range Missiles

Japan’s Ministry of Defense is set to develop multiple long-range missiles with a range of up to about 3,000 kilometers (1,860 miles).

The government is also looking to deploy a 2,000-km range missile by the early 2030s and a 3,000-km hypersonic missile that can reach anywhere in North Korea and some parts of China by around 2035.

Japan this month unveiled its biggest military build-up since World War Two with a $320 billion plan that will buy missiles capable of striking and ready it for sustained conflict.

This comes as Japan said it would begin a $320 billion military build-up that would arm it with missiles capable of striking countries amid conflict and regional tensions.

In its sweeping five-year plan and revamped national security strategy, the government said that it would also stockpile spare parts and other munitions.

It will reinforce logistics, develop cyber-warfare capabilities, and cooperate more closely with the United States and other like-minded nations to deter threats to the established international order.
