Japan will build its fifth generation fighter



As the official representative of the Ministry of Defense of Japan, the first flight tests of the prototype of the inconspicuous 5 + fighter of the ATD-X “Sinxing” generation (Jap. 心神?, “Soul”), will be held as early as 2014

ATD-X is a highly maneuverable fighter created using modern Stealth technology. The prototype will allow a variety of technical solutions to be tested under real flight conditions and tracking, which can later be used to build a promising combat aircraft. ATD-X will also allow you to work out many methods of countering other unobtrusive fighters that may well be deployed in the combat area in the future.

Japan announced an official request for information on available jet engines for the national fighter 5 + generation ATD-X Shinshin. Japan is interested in buying jet engines for 2-x prototypes of a promising fighter. The main condition is the power requirements of the power plants, it must be at least 44-89 kN in the outboard mode. Among the companies for which Japan has shown significant interest in engine models are Volvo Aero with RM12, General Electric with F404, Snecma with M88-2. These engines are currently used on Dassault Rafale, Boeing F / A-18 Super Hornet and Saab JAS 39 Gripen fighters.

Previously, Japan planned to purchase X-NUMX + F-5 Raptor fighter jets in the US, but their export was vetoed by the US Congress. As a result, in 22, Japan began funding its own development program for the 2004 + generation fighter, the work on which is entrusted to Mitsubishi. The model of the first Shinshin aircraft was tested for its ability to reflect radio waves in 5 in France. Technical characteristics of the future fighter is still unknown. According to the announced plans, the aircraft will be equipped with a radar with an active antenna array, jet engines with adjustable thrust vectoring and a fiber-optic remote control complex.

As expected, in the framework of the program ATD-X, most of the components for the fighter will be made in Japan. Japanese industry, and for the most part, Mitsubishi Heavy Industry (MHI), which assembles the Japanese version of the F-16C / D (F-2) fighter under license from Lockheed Martin, seeks to obtain a license to manufacture a new aircraft with the aim of the formation of additional jobs and the introduction of modern fighter technology creation.

Meanwhile, Japan in the near future plans to announce a tender for the purchase of fighters for the national air force. Among the candidates are Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II, F / A-18E / F and Eurofighter Typhoon.

According to preliminary information, the Ministry of Defense of Japan plans at the first stage, to purchase 12 aircraft. In the future, the volume of purchases may well increase to 42 aircraft. As previously reported, the F-4EJ "Phantom-2 Kai" fighter is planned to be removed from service since 2015. Tokyo expects that the main applicants will submit their real proposals by the end of September this year. According to the results of the tender, the Ministry of Defense plans to send a request for the allocation of the first tranche of funds for the purchase of FX fighters within the budget for the 2012 fiscal year, the adoption of the aircraft for service according to preliminary estimates is planned for the 2016 year.

    Besides oblique and canon, they are incapable of making nifiga, and even then under an American license.
    Just like atomic reactors, no one can do it without first testing the atomic bomb.
    And these show-offs only in order to throw off prices before buying ready-made sugar candies invisible only to American radars.

    the Japanese decided to transfer from "ZERO" immediately to 5 generation, and even with an expensive radar with an active array !!! OH WELL....

    Judging by the fact that they and the F-22 Raptor are ranked as 5+, this is no plus, and maybe not 5 :) The only nishtyak that can be distinguished from the above is a fiber-optic control system. Surely lead to weight savings.

    The picture clearly shows the layout, the keels are very high (like our Su-27/35), the collapse is small - this increases the visibility.

      Do not forget about the noise immunity of the optical fiber, which is important for example with vigorous fungi.
      Although they don’t have a school, they’re unlikely to rub like a whale, I think that by that time merikos would simply merge legally part of the necessary technologies from the 35th.

        At the expense of tyrit. The Japanese still have a lot of things the USSR has been rubbing. No wonder Japanese companies subscribed to the journal Science and Life.

        At the expense of their glider - it seems (judging by the form) that it will be possible to set speed records on it, but maneuverability will be much worse. Pay attention to the small number of aerodynamic control elements, especially in the front half of the airframe, even steering “socks”, as there is no PAK FA.

    while for the Japanese it’s a technology demonstrator, they work for a possible future hurt, but it’s useful, and it appeared in the media because the Americans would think about canceling the sale of f-22 which the Japanese do not seem to need at all

    Do not underestimate them - this is a terrible ancient enemy. And their budget can become 10 times bigger than ours at any moment - the second - the third most powerful state - and they will set up more planes than we if necessary
    God bless us to get away from conflict with all of them at once and get up in time

      The history of Japan is almost 150 years old.
      In 1860, the Entente (England, France, Turkey) tortured victory in the Crimea. After that, the defeated Russian Empire annexed Central Asia, the Far East and threatened to wipe out small-brit from India. The exhausted insolents could not oppose anything to this except how to train and arm the samurai. Until 1860, there weren’t even guns at the iphos, but only silicon shotguns, bows and spears like those of the North American Indians. However, the British began to fill the holds of ships with Japanese boys and send to England for training - for free. Then the equipment was imported - for free.
      Just recently, Americans handed atomic reactors to the Ibizan Abyssinian ... Just the other day, two Ipanish robots opened the Pandora's box - they opened the door to the station, took pictures of each other, and they were petrified by radiation from both the view of the Gargona
      Now we have Forty Chernobyls in Japan, only with the difference that FOUR nuclear reactors have turned into FOUR nuclear outstanding volcanoes that heat water and merge into the ocean with radiation.

    They have very good electronics, and on the plane this is one of the most important, if they don’t create a new one, they’ll coolly upgrade the old ones ...

    The history of Japan is more than 4000 years old, more than Russia will be.

    And always it was a very warlike and cruel people.
    And the fact that now they have moral degradation is not a fact that they will not rise to the next redistribution of land.

      pity that the chronicle of history is measured .... the militant descendants of the Ahrimans from Aramia almost completely supplanted the Ainu (the last mention is the end of the 19th-beginning of the 20th century), but partially the Ahrimans adopted their cult in the form of self-improvement on the path to enlightenment which poured into Buddhism, etc. ... and the fact that the Ahrimans are a warlike and cruel people, it is true that they say to themselves that they are descendants of the NAGs (serpent-like people)))) ... (doesn’t resemble anything ... and their god in their image and likeness. .. and they were NAGS .... ???? !!!!!) ... and so it is ... and it finds all the small reflection in the big ...

    all krants krashka. she with her MIG, SU brand air junk can now only frighten poor Georgians.
    if MIGs scored dozens with F-15s. now now every F-22 or a new Japanese is worth the entire fleet of the Air Force Air Force’s Air Force.
    finally, the world will become more secure and calm.

      I honestly don’t understand where these come from - it seems to write in Russian - after all, either a Russian or a former Soviet person. And the enemy is cleaner than Pindos! I’m thinking - maybe the repressions were carried out correctly before the war. It seems like you have to spend it again ...

    ------- "The history of Japan for more than 4000 years, more than Russia will be." --------

    Let's do without violent mythology. That at that time people lived there is indisputable. The Japanese "modestly" lead the history of their state from the XNUMXthth centuries. Although in the Middle Ages there was no single state, Hokkaido and the northern part of Honshu belonged to the Ainu.
    In addition, the Japanese themselves were not concerned about the dating of historical events. For them, the past was important only as a moral experience, and the chronological connection of events appeared only with the filing of Europeans.

    A photo of this model for purging appeared four years ago. For a couple of years there was no information at all, the project seemed to be standing. Although Mitsubishi Heavy Industry (MHI) is assembling the Japanese version of the F-16C / D (F-2) fighter Lockheed Martin company and replaces local electronics on airplanes, grabbing a 5+ generation fighter right away is in my opinion. The Japanese lack experience and the aircraft school was destroyed after the war. Here China also builds a 5 generation aircraft, although on a Chinese scale F-22 Raptor belong to the 4th generation.

    And I believe that Japan now has problems more important than the problem with the shortage of fighters. Take at least Fukushima. Huge amounts of money are required to clean up infection and restore infrastructure.

    Question to the author of the "fiber-optic complex remote control" can explain in more detail. In particular, I am interested in the issue (fiber-optic and remote). And in my opinion, the cockpit lantern would be more suitable for an attack aircraft than a fighter, though I can’t judge professionally, not an aviator.

    Well, you’ll try the “rushka" on Russia, there’s nothing more than this country, so you shouldn’t ... And still - the world probably sleeps peacefully when it’s guarded by AUG, you go tell it in the Middle East on the street, maybe passers-by which they will explain.
    T-50, so they don’t say it’s already flying (the “Raska” is where it is), and this is just a mockup.
