A fistful of yen...
Code name ShinShin!
From Japan Probe:
After being repeatedly turned down by the US Congress in its attempts to purchase the F-22, the Japanese government has turned to its own stealth fighter program. As the video shows, they seem to be making significant progress in the development of the “Shinshin” fighter [with a little help from France], but it will take years to produce a final product. For more information, check out Aviation Week’s post on the ATD-X.
If at first you do not succeed, steal the plans and build it yourself!
