Sawayuki's missiles

Two Japanese ships are docked at the Inner Harbor until Thursday. These missiles (4 at right) on the Sawayuki (DD125) can be launched from a surface ship against another ship, and from aircraft or submarine platforms. After launch, it can process date internally and flies over the ocean at a low altitude to avoid radar detection. The Sawayuki and the Kashima, also docked in the Inner Harbor, are two of three ships which are part of the 2010 Japan Training Squadron.
