Strange, I've always considered the Rising Sun flag to be closer to the Iron Cross in symbolism than the Swastika (the latter being a twisted version of something once good). Background: The Iron Cross was used in various roles during Nazi Germany, but it dates back to the 12th /13th century (depending on one's interpretation) and is still used by the modern German military.

The Hyuga and the Ise were a pretty huge investment, It's only natural that the ministry of defense wants to see how they can get the most out of them. Still leaves the question whether the Osprey is actually worth it or just an endless money pit.
