And Beijing won't be happy.
Get Ready, China: Japan is Joining the Hypersonic Missile Club

北京要不开心了。
准备好,中国:日本将加入高超音速导弹俱乐部
路透社



Japan is developing its own hypersonic missile. Tokyo has allocated about $57 million in the 2019 defense budget to develop hypersonic weapons—which achieve speeds of Mach 5 or greater—according to UPI, citing Japan’s Kyodo News.

日本正在研发自己的高超音速导弹。合众国际社援引自日本共同社的消息称,东京在2019年国防预算中拨款约5700万美元用于研发超音速武器 --- 其速度能达到5马赫甚至更高。

Japan also wants to buy cruise missiles, including America’s Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile-Extended Range (JASSM-ER) and the Norwegian/U.S. Joint Strike Missile. These weapons could be used to destroy North Korean ballistic missiles aimed at Japan.

日本还想购买巡航导弹,包括美国的扩展射程的联合远程空对地导弹(JASSM-ER)和挪威/美国的联合打击导弹。这些武器可以用来摧毁针对日本的朝鲜弹道导弹。

Missiles tend to make people nervous, but none more so than Japan. Like Germany, Japan still labors under its World War II legacy of fascist aggression (which its neighbor China isn’t likely to let them forget). Additionally, Japan’s 1947 constitution outlaws war as a means of settling international disputes, and Japan’s military is named the Japan Self Defense Force.

导弹往往让人紧张,但最紧张的就是日本了。与德国一样,现在的日本仍然因为其第二次世界大战的法西斯侵略行为受到约束(其邻国中国不太可能让他们忘记这段历史)。此外,日本的1947年宪法规定,放弃将战争作为解决国际争端的手段,日本的军队被命名为日本自卫队。

Japan armed with high-speed or long-range weapons will certainly increase the tension in an already-paranoid North Korea, which fears a surprise attack aimed at its missiles, nuclear weapons and leaders. But it is China, armed with a formidable nuclear arsenal and a large conventional military to match that could get nervous. The same could be said for Russia, which also has outstanding territorial disputes with Japan.

拥有高速或远程武器的日本肯定会加剧与偏执狂朝鲜之间的紧张局势,朝鲜会担心针对他们国家的导弹,核武器和领导人的突然袭击。但是还有个中国,他拥有强大的核武库和足以让人紧张的大型常规军队。俄罗斯也是如此,俄罗斯也与日本存在明显的领土争端。
