Several papers reported on a GSDF exercise held in Shizuoka yesterday, noting that some 27,000 people, including Defense Minister Inada, observed the event, which was opened to the public and the media. One of simulated drills involved an integrated operation by the three SDF branches to recapture a remote island occupied by an enemy. According to Tokyo Shimbun, although unlike last year there was no demonstration flight by USMC Ospreys, a large screen showed an image of the tilt-rotor aircraft with text explaining it is used for transporting goods and personnel.
