look nice , but abit too low on vls number , 32 vls will be much better then 16 seeing how the Chinese pumping ship out , the reason japan building ffm instead of DDG cause now japan need more ship to counter china _ it seem like japan try to export the FFM to lower the cost ( Indonesia are offer 8 ship 4 build in japan 4 in Indonesia , meanwhile the Japanese also talking to Vietnam about the ship , the more the ship are being built and active the lower the cost to built / operate it which will benefit japan and other Asian country ) each batch cost nearly 500 mil ( for the ship hull each batch = 2 ship ) from what I read the Japanese are planning to built around 30 FFM
