Japan refused to cooperate with the United States in the development of a new fighter

Japan refused to develop a new fighter jointly with the United States, preferring cooperation with Great Britain and Italy, writes Shūkan Gendai.

The publication noted that this decision was "unprecedented", as the fighter aviation for Japan has always been made in the USA or developed jointly with the Americans.

It is reported that the reason for Tokyo's refusal to cooperate with the Americans was the unwillingness of Lockheed Martin to share its technologies with Japanese manufacturers. At the same time, the British promised "full transparency" in this regard.



However, according to the publication, cooperation with BAE Systems instead of Lockheed Martin may create additional difficulties for Japan, and therefore, the prospects for the project still look uncertain. The British manufacturer is trying to achieve a 50/50 or even 60/40 development ratio in the new fighter in favor of the UK.

According to experts from Shūkan Gendai, such a position is unlikely to suit Tokyo.

As for the new fighter, I plan to start production by 2035. The winged car, called the FX, will have to replace the outdated F-2, according to the newspaper.

      Of the past 35 years, almost half of them, Japan ranked in the top three countries in terms of military budget.
      An interesting touch in relation to a country that is located far from the continent and the main theaters of hostilities, but, as before, dreams of capturing additional territories of neighboring countries.

      And we are still embarrassed to celebrate on a grand scale the day of the defeat of militaristic Japan and the recognition of this day as the end of WWII. It’s even in vain, given that Japan has not learned any lessons from the last war and continues to arm itself to the fullest.

        Japan cannot threaten us strategically.
        It is erasable by us. From a map of the Earth. Even if she has "five thousand aircraft carriers." It is not a strategic enemy for us. She is very limited.
        Our enemy is the one who occupies it.

    Interestingly, there will be a London-Washington squabble?! Or they will be hushed up "brotherly" like Ukrainian missiles in Poland. And cracklings then run along the "single" West wink.

      No, of course, this is a question of two companies, one offered more favorable conditions. Plus, in a bunch of RR + BAE, they work better.

          They will force you to buy your own plane. Like now.


          Besides, you won't earn all the money. France, Germany, Spain are building their own FCAS.

    Apparently, the Japanese have nothing technologically interesting for the United States, so sit in the corner.

      The Americans have already shown the Japanese once how to go against them. I think they will no longer climb on this bench, if they are smart.

    Europe makes 4+ generation aircraft, while the US 5, let it not be so good. What is the meaning of such cooperation? I don't think gay people will share their technology any more than mattresses.

    At the moment, all the benefits of access to American technology are fading in that:
    1. Following the example of Turkey (Step left or right) - the supply of technologies and systems is stopped.
    2. Paying countries in NATO and nearby - American clients and Americans can use leverage in competition ..... and you won’t sell to the side either (US permission is needed)
    3. And without export, the 5th generation will not pay for itself.
    4. And the US rules are changed very often and they themselves violate them.

    The Japanese are bent pin-do-sy, where will they go when the Italians and the British "suddenly" refuse to cooperate, or simply leak all the data on the Japanese fighter to the United States "who needs it."
    So, after a pause, they will stand with an outstretched hand behind the Germans (who also swaggered) in line for the F-35.
    The reincarnation of ZERO in the 21st century most likely will not pass, America will not allow it.

    In a week, the Japanese will apologize, they will say that the demon has beguiled and will not do it again. Uncle Sam just won't let you get off his kukan.
