Japan intends to develop the latest fighter on its own


Procurement Agency, technology and logistics, the Ministry of Defense of Japan has assembled a special team to develop a stealth fighter of a new generation, writes The Japan Times. The group so far will include about 30 people: officers of the Air Force Self-Defense, engineers and other specialists.


Some additional information on the topic publishes and Jane's. The site indicates that the Ministry of Defense of Japan rejected the proposals of foreign contractors, including Lockheed Martin, who promised to build a next-generation combat aircraft for the island monarchy. Instead, a new fighter will be developed under the leadership of the Japanese themselves.

Tokyo plans to replace the Mitsubishi F-2 fighters with a new machine in the thirties. A Japanese source at the Agency told Jane's that options for further production of currently used aircraft are not being considered.

We have developed enough technology to make the creation of domestic fighters possible

- added a representative of the Agency.

Nevertheless, the project provides for the possibility of limited international cooperation involving foreign technologies. The partners of Japanese industry here may be the American companies Boeing, Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman, as well as the British BAE Systems.

      It was a kind of pen test. To find out if they can build a 5th generation fighter themselves. And now it seems, having realized that they can, they decided before 2030 to create a 5-generation car for a new project.

    Why not? Of course it will. Even the tiny Israel, which is in an enemy environment, managed to develop its own aircraft, and Japan even more so.

      This is what, interestingly, Israel managed to develop a plane, can you tell me? The Israeli Air Force consists of American fighters F-16, F-15, F-35.

        By the beginning of the 1980s, the level of the Israeli aviation industry had grown significantly in connection with the experience gained in creating the Kfir fighter based on the French Mirage 5. This allowed us to set the task of creating a more advanced combat aircraft of a completely original design, which would further reduce Israel's dependence on foreign arms supplies. The new aircraft, called the Lavi, was intended to perform strike operations (direct air support and isolation of the battlefield) with the ability to conduct air combat for self-defense.

            Strange, you probably have not heard, but tiny Israel designs, manufactures and sells a wide range of military equipment and weapons. It is used in various countries, including the Russian Federation. These are high-tech modern weapons. Tiny Israel sells technology more than the Russian Federation and earns on it much more than the Russian Federation.

              Once again, for those who hear and read, only what they want to read or see bully - how many times did your colleagues beat themselves in the chest and other parts of the body with everything, anything in the media, on different sites, that Merkava is a super-duper, and so on - in your place, yes, in other places, Alas...
              And this example is far from being single, but some limitations - the HHGT are called, do not allow us to talk about it here, but you can easily continue to assume that your armed forces are the most powerful and invincible, only those who serve in these same armed forces are by no means torn in the battle with the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, and quite respectfully responded and speak about a lot with us, but this is definitely NOT interesting to you, you have other tasks ... hi

                Merkava is a superfood

                You do not strain so. Merkava is not for sale, not super and not duper. This is Merkava, she is for Israel.

                DO NOT rush into battle with the Russian Armed Forces

                No one is eager for battle, maybe only couch fighters. But Israel smashed the Soviet armed forces, fired tanks, shot down planes, the Soviet people darted from the Jews so that their ears were wrapped.

      But he did not enter the arsenal of any army, including Israel, moreover, you are talking about an attempt to create a 4th generation fighter by Israel and draw a parallel with the creation of a 5th generation fighter by Japan, which is incorrect due to different technological levels of aircraft 4 and 5 generations.

        not entered service

        No, I didn’t. At that moment, when the development of the aircraft was completed and it was undergoing flight tests, the Americans offered Israel to curtail the project and in return promised to sell the most modern aircraft. Moreover, they were allowed to make their own Israeli changes. Therefore, for example, the F-16, F-15 or F-35 are not entirely American, they are remade by the Jews, many systems are replaced.

        incorrect due

        Since it’s incorrect, then sorry.
