Aoshima Sci-Fi Space 1/72 Patriot PAC3 JASDF Launching System Kit
The MIM-104 Patriot is a surface-to-air-missile (SAM) system, the primary of its kind used by the U.S. Army and several allied nations. It is manufactured by the U.S. defense contractor Raytehon and derives its name from the radar component of the weapon system.
Patriot systems have been sold to Taiwan, Egypt, Germany, Greece, Israel, Japan, Kuvait, Netherland, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Jordan and Spain. Poland hosts training rotations of a battery of U.S. Patriot launchers. This started in the town of Morag in May 2010 but was later moved further from the Russian border to Torun and Ustka due to Russian objections. South Korea also purchased several second-hand Patriot systems from Germany after North Korea test-launched ballistic missiles to the Sea of Japan and proceeded with underground nuclear testing in 2006. On 4 December 2012, NATO authorized the deployment of Patriot missile launchers in Turkey to protect the country from missiles fired in the civil war in neighboring Syria.
