They've basically removed the trapezoidal shaped upper flightdeck block from Kaga's bow and will change it for a rectangular one to allow F-35B takeoffs to be easier from a wider bow.

November 21st Japanese Mayo Aegis class destroyers Haguro and Maya launched their first SM-3 Block IIA to defeat medium and intermediate-range ballistic missiles, jointly funded and developed with the USN, test fired two missiles off Hawaii which saw a successful engagement of a T4-E an MRBM target missile (a three stage separating missile target with Kratos’ Oriole solid propellant rocket motor mounted atop two tandem USN surplus Mk-70 Terrier booster stages). The engagement involved the Cooperative Engagement Capability fitted on both ships, with the JS Maya detecting and tracking the missile target before the JS Haguro shot it down using the data from its sister ship.

Japan currently plans two new gen 20,000t Aegis destroyers, length 210 m, beam 20 m, crew 110 ?, using Lockheed's SPY-7 radar, not the Raytheon SPY-6 as fitted on the new USN 10,000t AB Aegis Flight IIIs.

PS North Korea November 18th launched what it claims is a new ICBM called the Hwasong 17 with purported ability to strike deep into the continental US.
