Japan’s 1st Airborne Brigade also known as the Narashino Airborne Brigade is an elite paratrooper unit meant to counter terrorist threats. The unit was formed in 1958 as a rescue operation group but over the years it grew to include reconnaissance, direct action, air assault and unconventional warfare.

“About 500 soldiers and 19 aircraft conducted an island defense display based on a scenario of counter the military threat of invasion on Japanese territory islands by a hostile country, according to military officials.”
