Japan on 6 August 2013 unveiled its biggest warship since World War II called Izumo. Izomo is a flat top destroyer and it bears a strong resemblance to a conventional aircraft carrier. The ship has a flight deck that is nearly 250 metres (820 feet) long, is designed to carry up to 14 helicopters.
It will be used particularly in anti-submarine warfare and border-area surveillance missions. Moreover, it can enhance Japan’s ability to transport personnel and supplies in response to large-scale natural disasters, like the devastating earthquake and tsunami in 2011.

Its unveiling comes as Japan and China are having a dispute over several small islands located between southern Japan and Taiwan. For months, ships from both nations are conducting patrols around the isles, called the Senkaku in Japan and the Diaoyu in China.
