Izumo, Japan’s biggest warship unveiled
Japan has unveiled its biggest warship since World War II called Izumo.
Flat top destroyer resembling a conventional aircraft carrier. Nearly 250 metres (820 feet) long flight deck which can carry up to 14 helicopters. Used particularly in anti-submarine warfare and border-area surveillance missions. It will boost Japan’s ability to transport personnel and supplies in response to large-scale natural disasters, like the devastating earthquake and tsunami in 2011.
