    Default Mitsubishi Stealth

    Toyota? Honda? no, Mitsubishi.

    Sin tanta promocion como los Rusos, los Japoneses estarian desarrollando su propio avion invisible, una mezcla de F-15 con F-22. No estan tan lejos de lograrlo pero al menos ya saben a donde apuntar, y plata, tecnologia y conocimiento no les falta.

    Aqui les dejo el link

    Eso SI es una copia bien barata del F-22, asi como el PAK-FA lo es del YF-23.

    El proyecto fue cancelado hace tiempo, y se soltaron fondos para mas aviones F-2 que es la version Japonesa del F-16 corregido y aumentado.

    Estimado Arquitecto, creo que el "shin shin" no andaba muerto, solo estaba de parranda...

    Officials say Japanese stealth fighter prototype on track for test flight in 2014
    By Eric Talmadge (CP)

    TOKYO — Japan is looking to join the United States, China and Russia with a stealth fighter that senior Japanese air force officials say can be ready for a prototype test flight in just three years, significantly upping the ante in the intensifying battle for air superiority in the Pacific.
    The prototype will likely be able to fly in 2014, Lt. Gen. Hideyuki Yoshioka, director of air systems development at Japan's Ministry of Defence, said in an interview with The Associated Press.
    He said Japan has put 39 billion yen ($473 million) into the project since 2009, after it became clear the United States was not likely to sell it the F-22 "Raptor" — America's most advanced fighter jet — because of a congressional export ban.
    "We are two years into the project, and we are on schedule," Yoshioka said Monday.
    Yoshioka stressed that a successful test flight of the prototype, dubbed "Shinshin," or "Spirit," does not mean Japan will immediately start producing stealth aircraft. The prototype is designed to test advanced technologies, and if it is successful the government will decide in 2016 how to proceed.
    Japan is feeling the pressure of a regional dogfight over fighter superiority.
    "If the countries surrounding Japan have stealth capabilities, Japan will need to develop those capabilities itself to ensure our own defence," said Col. Yoshikazu Takizawa of the Defence Ministry's Technical Research and Development Institute.
    Japan relies to a large degree for its defence on its alliance with the United States, which has a significant number of fighters and other aircraft, along with some 50,000 troops, stationed around the Japanese archipelago.
    But that alliance, and Japan's relatively deep pockets, did not prove convincing enough for Tokyo to get the coveted F-22. Congress repeatedly squashed the idea due to fears that the F-22 contained too much secret technology to share with even Washington's closest friends.
    "Japan wanted the F-22, but Congress didn't agree to that," Yoshioka said. "We realized that it was important for us to develop our domestic capabilities."
    China and Russia, meanwhile, have made great strides toward perfecting advanced stealth fighters that could rival the F-22, out-fly Japan's aircraft and — coupled with other rapid advances now under way, particularly by China's navy — tip the regional balance of power.
    China surprised experts when it sent a stealth fighter, the Chengdu J-20, up for a test flight in January during a high-profile visit to Beijing by U.S. Defence Secretary Robert Gates.
    The J-20 resembles the F-22 in many respects and has caused a great deal of consternation among U.S. and Japanese military planners because its development appears to be going faster than forecast. Its first flight came amid rising nervousness over Beijing's heavy defence spending, overall military modernization and increasingly assertive stance on territorial issues.
    Though the J-20 is still years away from combat readiness, it could complicate efforts to control potential conflicts over Taiwan or North Korea and dramatically improve China's air defences.
    Russia's new fighter, the Sukhoi T-50, took to the air last year. It is being jointly developed with India's air force. The T-50 is seen not only as a boost to Russian air power — which is of concern to Japan because of a lingering dispute over islands both claim in the north Pacific — but also as a strong indication that it wants to sell more top-of-the-line fighters abroad.
    Japan's own air force is rapidly aging.
    Tokyo wants to replace its old F-4EJ and F-15 fighters with more current aircraft, most likely the U.S.-built F-35 Joint Strike Aircraft or F/A-18, or the Eurofighter "Typhoon." A much-delayed decision worth billions of dollars on which plane it will select is expected soon.
    Japan's ATD-X program — the acronym stands for advanced technologies demonstrator — is not aimed at supplanting those acquisition plans. Instead, a domestically made stealth fighter would provide an alternative for a third fighter Japan uses — the domestically produced F-2.
    Officials stress that it also is crucial for Japan to hone the ability of its engineers to build a state-of-the-art fighter if foreign sources refuse to sell — like Washington did with the F-22.
    "It is extremely important to maintain and improve domestic fighter production and technology bases," the Defence Ministry said in an outline of the ATD-X program released in late 2009, when development began in earnest.
    Another big consideration is money.
    The Defence Ministry expects the economic impact of domestic research, development and production to reach 8.3 trillion yen ($101 billion) and create 240,000 jobs.

    Casi apostaria que cuando vean las bondades del F35 se iran por el, y si les permiten meterle la mano, mejor aun. No es que los Japoneses no puedan sacar un tremendo avion, pero tampoco tienen un pelo de tontos, y primero podrian sacarle provecho al F35 y luego sacar un mitsubishi de lujo.

    Concuerdo con el comentario de Giancarlo. Si bien es verdad que si alguien ademas de los EEUU hoy esta en capacidad de desarrollar un caza de 5a generacion, es el Japon, sin embargo, la necesidad ineludible de inversion masiva en investigacion y desarrollo para solo un numero limitado de unidades que solo serian de uso exclusivo por este pais, definitivamente no lo harian viable para una economia que esta luchando duramente por recuperarse de una decada de recesion que recien pareceria estar estabilizandose moderadamente.
    El Japon ya tiene propuestas para el F-35, SuperHornet, Rafale e inclusive Eurofighter, sin embargo parece que no quieren transar con nada menos que el top de las verdaderas capacidades 5a generacion, es decir, supercruiser y furtividad a nivel Raptor entre otras...
    La verdadera amenaza para la hegemonia del Raptor, podria venir de una alianza estrategica que encontrara en medio camino a una empresa con amplia experiencia en la industria militar aeronautica, como MBDA y al gigante industrial Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, con capacidad de desarrollar tecnologias afines al concepto de 5a generacion antes mencionados.
