That's some pretty impressive material.
I'm a bit suprised India, Thailand, and Brazil have aircraft carriers, considering these countries are not even close to par with the military budgets of the UK and US.

I know that the Japanese are calling this new design a helicopter carrying destroyer but look at it and tell me this is not a small carrier.

According to GlobalSecurity.org the Japanese have scheduled to build 2 of these ships to replace the aging Shirane and Haruna class DDH's they have now which act as flagships in the their escort flotillas. The current design calls for the ships to displace about 20,000 tons (fully loaded) and carry both the SH-60J and MH-53E type helicopters but given the traditional aircraft carrier type flight deck V-STOL capable fixed wing aircraft operations would not be beyond the realm of the possible.
