- Japan To Double F-15 Missile Payload Ahead Of “China Confrontation” After Latest Chinese Threat

In the most recent escalation involving China’s latest foray into the East China Sea, we reported that Japan’s coast guard released a video of several hundred Chinese ships located near the disputed naval territory, among which 18 patrol vessels of which seven were equipped with what looked like machine guns. “Actions by the Chinese side like this, which will escalate the situation, are not tolerable,” the Japanese Coast Guard said in a statement.
This took place just days after Japan announced it would deploy land-to-sea missiles with a 300 km range to protect the nation’s isolated islands, including the Senkakus, with costs for the deployment borne by the defense ministry’s budgetary request for the March 2018 fiscal year, which means even more bonds for the BOJ to monetize.
