Japan is eyeing proposals for its new advanced jet fighter worth around $40 billion based on existing western aircraft and has issued a third request for information (RFI) to American and European nations.

 

 

 

 

 

Unlike the first two requests, the third one was sent only to foreign companies in the US and Europe with a separate, more detailed document delivered to London and Washington, the sources said.

The requests for a design based on existing aircraft and the separate documents sent to the British and U.S. governments have not been previously reported.

 

The sources declined to be identified because they are not authorized to speak to the media.

 

 

 

 

 

Japan could use existing airframes that include Lockheed Martin’s F-35 Lightning stealth jet fighter, Boeing’s F/A-18E/F Super Hornet and Eurofighter Typhoon.

Japan's last domestically produced jet fighter, the F-2, which entered service in 2000, was built jointly by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) and Lockheed Martin based on the U.S. F-16 multi-role fighter. As Japan's leading fighter maker, MHI, which built the World War Two-era A6M Zero, would anchor the Japanese share of the F-3 project.
