Japan is considering the modification of its ‘Izumo’ helicopter carrier to be able to land and operate the F-35B short-take-off and vertical landing stealth fighter jets.

It is also mulling to increase the order of its 42 F-35A land based stealth fighters to 100 which will include a mix of the F-35A and F-35B versions, local media and agencies reported today.

The helicopter carrier, if remodeled with a strengthened runway could be called ‘multipurpose mother ship’ instead of ‘aircraft carrier’ so as not to flout the war-renouncing Article 9 of the Constitution which says that Tokyo cannot possess attack aircraft carriers as it is only allowed to use force for self-defense.

Modifying the helicopter carrier with stealth-aircraft capabilities is seen as necessary in the face of China’s maritime assertiveness in the waters around the disputed Senkaku Islands in the East China Sea.
