Naval News reported that Japan is developing a project to develop a new generation of stealth missiles for naval defense systems.
The site indicates that Kawasaki Heavy Industry (KHI) during the DSEI Japan 2023 exhibition in Tokyo presented a new model of anti-sea missiles with characteristics that make them difficult to detect for enemy radars.
The website states: “The new missiles will be produced exclusively from Japanese components and will work with maritime defense systems designed to protect the coast and islands.”
For its part, the spokesperson (KHI) indicated that funding for research into the development of technologies for these missiles came from the defense budget allocated by Japan between 2018 and 2022, and $261 million was also allocated this year. support the project to develop these missiles.
According to information provided by Kawasaki Heavy Industry, the company’s specialists are currently working on the development of the missile body and the development of its engines separately, KJ300 class side jet engines are being developed for it, and what is unique about the new missiles is that they will be able to hit their targets at long range. distances, and their design. The materials from which they will be made will reduce the effective dispersion area, which makes them difficult to detect by enemy radars, in addition to the fact that these missiles will have high maneuverability.
