Warplanes: Scorned Japan Turns To The Familiar F-2
If this information is correct then not only is this a major development for reviving Mitsubishi military sectors which are nearly completely atrophied, but also the JASDF who know must structure their air force without the F-22 or F-35, F-X competition (why bother procuring a new type of fighter when F-2 production has resumed) and the F-35 program as a whole (if a major potential buyer like Japan is dropping out then what does that mean for other countries considering the F-35?)Originally Posted by Strategy Page
