In the Yokosuka Naval Base, a pair of destroyers from the First Guard Fleet were escorting an aircraft carrier. The carrier boasted an impressive displacement of 100,000 tons, and its escort was an obvious display of power. It was originally a Nimitz class carrier, but after being decommissioned by the US Navy and handed over to the Japanese Naval Defense Force, it was rechristened as the "Kaga." Over the previous two years, 3000 men of the Japanese Naval Defense Force trained on the carrier, handled repairs, then processed handover at an American naval base. Then the ship was officially transferred to the Japanese Naval Defense Force and sailed into the Yokosuka Naval Base. The Kaga (CV-2001) also carried 80 F-35C fighter jets and eight of the latest electronic warfare fighter jets EA-18G and Growler.
