    Should the Japanese join theTempest, FCAS, TFX or AMCA program... OR VICE VERSA?

    multi-role combat jets are getting more complicated and expensive to make..... and the 5th or 6th gen (whatever u wanna call it), its even harder to go at it alone.

    since Japan hasn't built anything yet.. would it be best they give up on the F-3 and join the Tempest, or FCAS? or TFX? or MCAS or whatever India is calling it?

    OR

    Should they actually join Japan and adopt the F-3 instead.. since Japan already has the engine technology and apparently the radar too, with a configuration that appears to be decided (although a bit boring)

    For me India joining the F-3 project as a junior partner would benefit both parties.

    What can India offer Japan? A contribution to development costs, cheaper development engineering (where India has the know how to undertake development tasks), cheaper production and assembly and a larger production run, possibly making F-3 sufficiently price competitive to win export contracts.

    What can Japan offer India? The technology (or ability to develop or acquire such) to actually build the F-3, decision making discipline, organised project management etc

    On the political level both India and Japan are unsettled by China's rise to prominence.
    Sum ergo cogito
