This is an interesting documentary about the development of the P1, if for anything, some interesting footage of testing and manufacturing in it.

Rather I'd think it being the opposite. Samurai mask was removed and smashed to pieces. But a new one has been made and is getting put on :ninja:

New long term defense strategy and general plan.

http://www.mod.go.jp...df/20181218.pdf

 

New mid-term defense procurement plan which covers years 2019 to 2023.

http://www.mod.go.jp..._seibi31-35.pdf

Of course there are many points, but out of the announced 105 F-35s, 45 are planned to be procured in this time frame, of the 45, 18 are the B models.

 

New illustrated and concise file that takes the long time guideline and 5 year procurement plan together.

Plans to develop a new AShM were made. The ASM-3 finished development in 2017 however due to political consideration about abilities that can attack bases, the range was kept down to the level of that of the previous AShM types. While ASM-3 can fly at Mach 3, its range is 140-200km. The new "Aegis style" Chinese warships have anti-air missiles with a range of 150km. And in the last 13-18 years, over 15 of these kinds of warships have entered service and even more are projected to come into service. So Japanese MoD sees it necessary to have a stand-off-missile that can be launched beyond the range of those anti-air missiles for increasing deterrence. The new missile is to take the ASM-3 and increase fuel and add other improvements to give it a range of over 400km. MoD hopes to put the new missile into practice within several years.

Japan is now in the position of figuring out appropriate retaliatory countermeasures against Korea after the recent South Korean court approval of asset seizure from Japanese firms as World War 2 forced labor compensation for 4 individual Korea plaintiffs, and after South Korea's unsatisfactory response this past week to the MFA's warning to Korea and Koreans of consequences for any actions that would harm Japanese firms mentioned in the dispute.

 

Abe and Japan must get a handle on this dispute firmly and quickly, as the setting of precedent for the right of individuals to claim wartime damages again Japan could have serious ramifications in various ways.

The essential fear is that if the Supreme Court of Korea's ruling on Japan's liability for damages to individual wartime forced labor plaintiffs is upheld by asset seizures from overseas Japanese firms such as Mitsubishi Heavy Industry, there is little preventing individual plaintiffs from the rest of Asia and the world from doing so as well.

 

The danger is in the MFA and Abe himself not taking this matter as seriously as they should for the protection of Japan and Japanese as a whole.

 

I am concerned.

Yes, the X-2 mounted engine had 5 tons of thrust with afterburner. This has about 15 tons of thrust with afterburner.

I see. So for X-2 sized single engine aircraft. Or there are plans for T-10 sized heavy fighter?

Not quite since X-2 was a tech demonstrator, not a prototype. The T-10 is the prototype for the SU-27 if I'm not mistaken. I recall some reports a month or two ago saying something that the more specific role for the new fighter is to be drawn later. But as of now, all basic level concepts of the new fighter have it using two engines so I would expect it to do so.

T-10 is family, in which Su-27 belongs. As for last - doubt it. If they already testing engine, they should have at least basic concept chosen. Engines are built to match requirements of chosen aircraft concept, not the other way around.

the U.S. government is reportedly considering approving the disclosure of at least a portion of the computer code behind the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter’s avionics and mission systems to Japan to support the development of a new stealth fighter jet for that country. Given that this is Lockheed Martin’s proprietary data, this would strongly point to ongoing discussions between that company and Japanese authorities about the potential design that blends together features and design considerations leveraged from the F-35 and the F-22 Raptor.

Japanese newspaper The Yomiuri Shimbun first reported on the potential arrangement on Apr. 18, 2019. Just a little over a year ago, the reports first emerged that Japan was in talks with Lockheed Martin about a new aircraft derived, at least in some part, from the F-35 and the F-22 that would meet that country’s requirements for a stealthy fifth-generation fighter jet.

It seems to me all you'd have to do to make a dedicated interceptor is stretch the F35 fuselage. The shape was constrained by the deck elevators of gator freights and to a lesser degree the lift fan; if you made a 'D' version you better follow the area rule and easily get it to super cruise.

The F-35 is really heavy that uses a single very powerful engine which Japan doesn't have. An F-22 shell would be more appropriate so as to fit two engines. Also to note is that all past concepts of the F-3 have been of twin engine designs.

The consideration of showing some of the code of weapon systems and avionics showing is probably something to sweeten working with LM after the attention was given to BAE.
