The Hyuga Class Helicopter Carrier was designed to be a light weight helicopter carrier with capability to carry a relatively large helicopter wing.
It has a full length flight deck and elevators forward and aft leading to a hanger deck. They are capable of carrying VTOL aircraft such as F-35 Lightnings and Ospreys. Many critics claim it is a true aircraft carrier and that they are an attempt by the Japanese to rebuild their naval strength. These ships also have an enhanced command and control system and carry up to eleven aircraft. These ships are classified by Janes Ships as Helicopter Carriers and by Global Security classifies them as Helicopter Destroyers.
These ships displace 13950 tons standard and 18000 tons loaded. They are 646 feet long and have a beam of 108 feet. They have a complement of about 360 crew. Two ships have been built in this class including the Hyuga and the Ise. They are capable of carrying up to 4000 troops on board for amphibious action.
