Yomiuri reported that the GOJ is considering tasking GSDF troops with protecting the bases used by the MSDF and the ASDF so that these branches can use their personnel for more pressing missions involving the deployment of aircraft and warships to defend against possible aggression by China or nuclear and missile provocations by North Korea. By introducing a “cross-service” system to defend some 900 MSDF and the ASDF facilities, the two branches will probably be able to assign several hundred of their personnel to other critical missions. Transportation services for the two branches may also be transferred to the GSDF in the future.
