In the initial budget request for the new fiscal year, submitted under the previous Democratic Party government, the defense ministry asked for 4.59 trillion yen.
Under the revised budget, the ministry requests 4.65 trillion yen ($53 billion) plus costs for last-minute items, such as an unspecified rise in the number of soldiers, fuel and surveillance planes, which are likely to exceed 100 billion yen ($1.13.billion).
The Ministry of Defense has also been allocated an extra 212 billion yen in the 2012/2013 fiscal year to boost communications, transport and missile defense capability.
