Monday’s Sankei wrote in its lead story that the Defense Ministry has decided to install mobile radar for the ASDF on the Ogasawara Islands in an attempt to fill the “air defense vacuum” caused by the absence of fixed early-warning radar in the area. The ministry has reportedly concluded that the swift installation of the radar will be critical to counter China’s maritime advancement in the Western Pacific.
