Today’s Nikkei said the Defense Ministry is considering jointly developing with the U.S. a next-generation amphibious vehicle for use in SDF operations to win back remote islets captured by an enemy. The ministry hopes to further strengthen defense equipment cooperation with the U.S. based on the assessment that greater U.S. involvement will be essential for the defense of islands including the Senkakus.
