Both Americans and Japanese are very happy that that invasion did not happen.

That seems astounding to me.

Kind of correct. They used what had been created for WWII up until 2000. Then they had more manufactured. Still, very impressive since they used the WWII stockpile through the Korean war, Vietnam, Desert Storm, etc.

While they did manufacture an additional 15,000, the actual issue is still from the WWII stockpile.
