Japan signs its first major arms export contract

Japan has signed its first major arms export contract. According to the portal defensenews.com, Tokyo has signed an agreement with the Ministry of Defense of the Philippines on the supply of air defense radars.


The Japanese company Mitsubishi Electric has signed a major contract with the Ministry of Defense of the Philippines, this is the first contract for the supply of military equipment since 2014, when Japan lifted its self-imposed restrictions on the supply of finished military products. Despite the fact that the restrictions were lifted and Japan tried to put its products on the arms market, Japanese companies have not been able to win a single tender for five-plus years.

And now the first success is the conclusion of a contract with the Ministry of Defense of the Philippines for the supply of three stationary long-range air surveillance radars and a mobile air surveillance radar. The message itself does not say which radars Mitsubishi Electric will supply, but it was previously reported that an improved version of the Mitsubishi Electric J / FPS-3 active electronic scanning radar, along with the J / TPS-P14 mobile radar, would be supplied for stationary objects. It is reported that both radar models are equipped with an active phased array.

The delivery, in addition to the radars themselves, will also include all related infrastructure, equipment, and a number of other services. The start of deliveries is planned for 2022, the total cost of the contract was $ 103,5 million.

The Philippines intends to use Japanese radars to monitor the airspace over the southern South China Sea, the southern islands of the Philippine archipelago, and the strategic Benham region.

    A new player is entering the arms market. I am sure this is just the beginning, they will still find their niche, and the competition will become much more difficult. Over time, they will squeeze the United States, and us, and the Chinese. ... these can!

      I would not rate the Japanese so strongly, I think that they will take an equal position with Israel, they will sell a little, but not cheap.
      Perhaps they will supply their electronics and equipment to Southeast Asia, Australia.
      Arabs are unlikely.
      Africa - China will reign there in 10 years.
      Latin America - perhaps partially.
      Europe, the Mediterranean - hardly.

        Yes, it's straight, Maxim ... My car and scooter are Japanese, I took it in terms of price-quality ratio. Civilian products, I agree, but with the military the same story will be for potential buyers, I'm sure ... They do it well.

          FURUNO radars are the best in the world! And we installed and repaired radars of almost all companies.

      There is a slight inaccuracy. The United States can be squeezed in technology, but in sales it is unlikely. Americans do not hesitate to push their allies where they can make money themselves

      In many ways I agree! A strong player turns out. Their technology is at an altitude, and the quality. With service, there is no experience yet. And to compete, yes, the United States (if not push), the European Union, Korea. With Russia and China, we are not competitors, they have a cost price big, ours is simpler and cheaper.

    Japan is bankrupt in the upcoming global currency and debt cascade crisis of late 2020-early 2021 (deduct external debt from reserves). Before we died we got a tiny contract, let them breathe a little

        endlessly acting by the methods of the united states
        like endless borrowing
        pressure with sanctions on competitors
        pressure with sanctions or their threat to allies
        everything has its limit

    I don’t remember who exactly, but we were already predicted here and the collapse of the United States in the spring of 2019 and in the spring of 2020. Now they are wanging across Japan ...

      I didn't wang the collapse of Japan. Only an economic collapse (however, it is already happening, but it’s still berries). And I originally planned the collapse of the United States in 2021, but everything will happen earlier

      I'm just wondering, where did this Dutere of ours come from? Just the last steps in MTC and procurement:

      Korean advanced UBS - FA50.

      6 Brazilian SuperToucans are flying right now.
      Israeli howitzers M-71

      16 Bell 412EPI helicopters

      2 + 2 anti-submarine AW159

      6 AH-1Z and AN-64E - according to the latest Foreign Military Sales protocol.
      New contract for used junk from Korea - 345 KIA trucks KM250 and KM450 (in addition to the previous contract for "190 units KM-250, 60 units KM-451 and 219 units KM-450".
      12 ACS ATMOS 2000
      the patrol ship OCEA under the OPV 270 Mk II project from France for 5,142 billion Philippine pesos (about 97 million euros).
      Corvette RSS 762 Chungju from Korea as a gift - for a small amount of money for repair, additional equipment and training + a contract for normal ships.
      The head frigate FF 150 Jose Rizal from Korea, the second is under construction, money - 15,744571584 billion Philippine pesos (about 311 million dollars).
      DKVD BRP "Tarlac" and BRP "Davao del Sur" from Indonesia for 3,964 billion Philippine pesos (about 91 million dollars).
      Two Japanese patrol ships Multi-Role Response Vessels (MRRV) under a 2019 contract for 14,55 billion Japanese yen (132,57 million dollars) - though on credit.


      What is from Russia? A couple of promises.
      Free URALS.
      Free AK, SVD, PKM.
      37 trucks GAZ-3308 "Sadko" and 37 trucks URAL Next. And in terms of money, everything is very vague there.
      Все.

    IMHO almost the first disaster film that was shown in the Union.
