Strategies for Maritime Traffic Safety

Because the majority of material resources and food supplies come from overseas, maritime trade routes are the lifeline of our nation. Furthermore, in the event of a military attack on Japan, maritime trade routes not only guarantee the survival and prosperity of our nation, but also act as the foundation of our ability to sustain strategic resistance in cooperation with the U.S. military.

For this reason, strategies to guarantee maritime traffic safety are paramount.

Destroyers (anti-air warfare) will defend against air attacks against shipping vessels on maritime trade routes, and depending on circumstances, fighter aircraft will support them.
