    This chart gives you a more better idea on the latest(2018) import/export breakdown data.

    http://www.sjac.or.jp/common/pdf/toukei/4_H30nen_boueki.pdf

    It states that Japan exports a total of 393,101,000,000 yen in engine parts and imports 507,112,000,000 yen which includes fully assembled engines.
    In terms of other components for aircrafts both fixed wing and rotary wings, Japan exported a total of 435,600,000,000 yen while importing 240,565,000,000 yen.
    The gap in import/export is fully assembled aircrafts both fixed wing and rotary in which export 809,000,000 yen while import is 481,195,000,000.
    No the only large difference is in the fully assembled aircraft division which is totally understandable but in the engine and other components Japan has a very nice balance.

    Those Type 19 are a cool set up. A Self propelled Howitzer mounted on the back of a cargo truck.

    what gun does it have, as in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Type_99_155_mm_self-propelled_howitzer perhaps?

    loading, automatic?

    how many shells in that truck?

    etc., can't find a decent link

    by the way I like the Bereg which is sorta similar

    I mean https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A-222E_Bereg-E_130mm_coastal_mobile_artillery_system 'welcome to littorals' type of weapon hahaha

    155mm Howitzer on a MAN 8x8 this set up appears to be manually operated but in this in this configuration that means it’s speed is only limited by the crew. No word on ammo capacity. A 5 man crew.
