FILE - In this Aug. 29, 2017, file photo, Japan Air Self-Defense Force demonstrates a training to utilize the PAC-3 surface to air interceptors at the U.S. Yokota Air Base on the outskirts of Tokyo. Japan’s Cabinet approved a plan Tuesday, Dec. 19, 2017, to purchase a set of costly land-based missile combat system from the U.S. to step up Japanese missile defense capability amid escalating threat from North Korea. The decision would allow the Defense Ministry to buy a set of two Aegis Ashore systems to add to Japan’s current two-step missile defense consisting of Patriot batteries and Aegis-equipped destroyers.
