The Ministry of Defense of Japan approved the purchase of short-take-off and vertical landing aircraft F-35B from the United States.


“The F-35B meets all the necessary requirements as a short-range fighter and a vertical landing for the needs of the Self-Defense Forces,” the agency’s website said in a statement.

Japan acquires this part of the aircraft for the light aircraft carriers Izumo and Kaga, which will be converted from helicopter carriers, TASS reports.

It is noted that 42 F-35B aircraft will be purchased for the needs of the Japanese Self-Defense Forces.

On May 27, US President Donald Trump said at a press conference following talks with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe that Japan plans to buy 105 F-35 fighters.
