The Japanese government decided to develop a strike aircraft to conduct electronic warfare. About it reports RBC-Ukraine with reference to the newspaper Yomiuri.
The aircraft will be capable of disabling the radar and communication systems of the enemy.
In particular, the main purpose of such aircraft is the ability to counter the armed forces of Russia and China. The development of attack aircraft, according to officials, embodies the content of the plan of defence adopted by the Cabinet of Ministers in December 2018.
The first aircraft is planned to transfer to the armed forces around 2027 .
