In view of the threat from China and North Korea, Japan and Taiwan are trying to buy Israeli missile defense systems. Although their plan is to have S–400 and US THAAD defense system, but for now they will not be able to spend that much money because China and North Korea’s attack on Japan is equal to the one. But Taiwan also wants this but it is very important for Taiwan to buy US THAAD Defense System but Israeli Arrow 3 Defense System is the world’s top missile defense system. Taiwan and Japan do not want US THAAD and S-400 to be bought in their country as it may create a lot of tension.
Why South Korea, Taiwan & Japan planning to Buy US THAAD or Israeli Arrow 3 Air Defense System?
Because of being close to US, there are only two ways for them, either buy Israeli defense system or buy US THAAD (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense) because the friendship between Russia, China, and North Korea is very bad for them. Even Japan and Taiwan build a lot of things and have the best army and defense but fighting with China and North Korea can be a very bad experience for them. For this, Japan and Taiwan want that China should not suddenly attack Taiwan because it is difficult for Taiwan to get the opportunity to buy Defense Systems and Weapons from US, Israel aur EU because it cannot depend too much on the US. Especially for South Korea, Arrow 3 and Iron Dome will be in fair demand and helpful if there is a surprise attack from North Korea.
Why Israeli Defense Systems is most powerful for Japan, South Korea and Taiwan?
Israel’s first such Arrow 3 and Iron Dome is a joint venture between the US and Israel and is capable of hitting both short range and long range missiles. All Japan and Taiwan do not want that installing missile defense system like Russia and USA will not benefit them much because both enemy and friendly countries are near them. Russian and US missile defense systems is good for those countries that either have more enemies around them or share more borders. It is not impossible for Japan and Taiwan to buy Russian missile defense system because it is tantamount to not getting S-400 defense system in the face of US sanctions. On the other hand, it is not cheap for every country to buy US THAAD and US Patrick defense system.
