As China builds islands to develop army installations and North Korea tests atomic warheads you can understand the reason why their neighbors are on edge. Japan’s military is getting ready for the possible war and that is the reason they have done some improvement to the Mitsubishi X-2 Shinshin. The X-2 Shinshin was developed after the United States rejected Japan’s request for a few F-22 Raptors. Rather, the Japanese Government started to build their own stealth fighter to update their maturing air armada. As China plans to make a big appearance with their stealth aircraft, Japan is getting ready to counter their planes with the X-2.
