MILLITARY PREP: JAPAN PLANS TO ACQUIRE CLOSE TO 150 F-35 FIGHTER JETS FROM US

The move is designed to make the country better able to defend itself against a more aggressive China and revanchist Russia.



TOKYO — Japan plans to purchase nearly 150 F-35 stealth fighter jets from the US — a move intended to revitalize the country’s aging military equipment to make it better able to defend itself against a more aggressive China and revanchist Russia.



It’s a big purchase for Japan, as each F-35 costs about $100 million. The goal, Ohno said, is to replace 147 older fighter jets with the more modern planes, giving the country greater capabilities to defend itself militarily.



But global reactions will likely differ strongly. The news will surely please President Donald Trump, who has long criticized Japan for not investing enough in America’s economy.
