NHK’s metropolitan news reported last night that the municipal government of Kisarazu, Chiba Prefecture, has submitted to the Defense Ministry a list of 25 questions concerning the temporary deployment of GSDF MV-22s to a base in Kisarazu. Local officials and residents are reportedly not convinced by the ministry’s explanation that the temporary deployment is a stopgap measure until the Ospreys can be based at Saga Airport semi-permanently. The municipal government reportedly asked for data proving that Kisarazu is preferable to other sites for hosting the tilt-rotor planes.
