    Finally, I hope for more ASW capabilty for both nations and later maybe MBT and 5./6. gen fighter developments. Japan would be a good partner for us with future techs in mind.

    Certainly. This is a welcoming article. Japanese are extremely smart people and their expertise in arms technology will be definitely an asset in our weapons development. There are many regions where they are experts and some regions where we are.

    A combination could be terrific. However I doubt any JV for fighters will ever come since Japanese economy is really down and we already have too many projects right now to handle. Perhaps creation of SMART SOLDIER is an option for ground troops parallel and similar to FINSAS.

    Well Shin Shin fighter is on the cards. If we can manage to rope these guys in for our AMCA joint development and production it would be awesome. and they can bring in their expertise in avionics and radar.

    But will Japanese pride allow them to co-operate with us?
