I am more interested in the H-X concept with the expander bleed cycle main thrusters. This seems to be another exercise to show Japan can build an ICBM^H^H^H^H rapid response launch system if they want to.

Heh, the truck hauling the first stage motor broke down (hydraulic problems) on the slope 300 meters from the KASC main gate! Looks like it will stay there for a few days waiting for replacement parts...
