Aboard JS Izumo DDH-183 Helicopter Destroyer of the JMSDF

Helicopter Destroyer

During IMDEX Asia 2019 in Singapore, we had the chance to get aboard and tour JS Izumo (DDH-183) いずも (護衛艦) of the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF).
Displacing 27,000 tons (full load), the Izumo-class DDH are the largest and flagships of the JMSDF.
They have a length of 248 meters, accommodations for up to 970 (including crew and troops) and can carry and deploy up to 14 maritime helicopters like the SH-60K.
Izumo was built by Japan Marine United (JMU), launched in August 2013 and commissioned in March 2015. Izumo has one sistership: JS Kaga.
