Japan Need 4 Companies To Finish F-2 Generation Latest Aircraft

Northrop Grumman's position for Japan's F-2 replacement program Northrop Grumman wants to engage with Japan in meeting its need to acquire or develop a new generation fighter to replace Japan Air Self-Defense Force's Mitsubishi F-2 (JASDF) platform. A spokeswoman from Northrop Grumman confirmed to Jane on July 11 that the company had responded to a request for information (RFI) from the latest Ministry of Defense (Ministry of Defense) to support the program. While the US company did not provide details about its response, an official source quoted by local media in Japan said Northrop Grumman had offered MoD a sophisticated aerospace technology menu that could be feasible to be integrated into new combat aircraft. In support of its offer Northrop Grumman is also likely to have approached the Japanese defense company with a view to collaborating on aerospace technology, although the company did not provide any details regarding its involvement with the local industry. In addition to Northrop Grumman, Jane understands that Japan is also considering RFI responses from companies including Lockheed Martin, Boeing, and BAE Systems. The Agency for the Acquisition, Technology and Logistics of the Ministry of Defense of Japan (ATLA) issued the latest RFI for this program in March; such third demand since 2016. Lockheed Martin had previously confirmed to Jane that his offer was based on a fifth-generation "fifth-generation" fighter technology sourced from two corporate frontline combat platforms: the F-22 Raptor and the F-35 Lightning II. The RFI responses filed by Boeing and BAE Systems are likely to be based on technologies sourced from F / A-18E / F Super Hornet and Eurofighter Typhoon respectively. ATLA officials recently told Jane that the agency is considering some F-2 replacement options. This includes the joint development of new aircraft with international manufacturers; production of existing foreign design licenses through government-to-government channels; custom platform development; or a program to upgrade and upgrade the F-2, which discontinued Mitsubishi's production in 2011.
