BAE Systems has responded to a Request for Information (RFI) from the Japanese Ministry of Defence (JMOD), proposing a package of integration support to Japan’s F-X next generation fighter development programme.

Japan wants to build F-X stealth jet by the time its F-2 aircraft retires in 2035. The project is expected to cost $40 billion.

The response to the RFI, which was issued by the JMOD’s Acquisition, Technology and Logistics Agency, outlines technical capabilities across a range of key areas, which BAE Systems can offer into supporting development of the F-X programme.

Andy Latham, Campaign Delivery Director – Japan, for BAE Systems’ Air business, said: “We firmly believe that we can add significant value to the F-X programme. We look forward to further progressing our discussions and we are honoured to have the opportunity to collaborate with Japan on this programme.”
