    185 Million all total based on figures given.
    Ground based systems tend to be cheaper and the F15 could be based off the shelf.
    They didn’t give a figure for the Kawasaki C-2 airlifter based Jammer. But I think there was another post that did.

    Japan Flight Tests Sensor Suite For Future Fighter

    The passive sensors clearly aiming at the J-20. I wonder how its range would compare against the IRST21 block 2 being developed for the F-18 Block 3 which reportedly can pick up any plane that generates IR signature at a range beyond 100 kms.

    Can’t win em all.
    The JGSDF has been looking to replace the type 96 8x8. They had a Komatsu team on it but apparently it fell through. They short listed 3 bidders.
    The Home team Mitsubishi heavy industry. They have shown two 8x8 vehicles the type 16 MGS and we’re offering another 8x8 in the past.

    The visitors.
    General Dynamics land systems LAV 6.0 a heavily updated Canadian 8x8 a cousin to the Stryker A1.

    Patria AMV XP.
