Japan to Sell ShinMaywa US-2 Amphibious Planes to Indian Navy (01:24)
Japan is close to signing an agreement to supply ShinMaywa US-2 amphibious planes to India. During a four-day visit to Tokyo by PM Manmohan Singh, the two sides are set to firm up plans for India to purchase the domestically-developed aircraft used by Japan's armed forces. If finalized, this will be the first sale of hardware used by the military since the decades-old weapons exports ban that was eased in 2011. Delhi is expected to purchase around 15 units of the US-2, used by Japan's Self Defense Forces and developed by ShinMaywa Industries. It costs around 99 million dollars per unit, has a range of 4,700 kilometres and can land in water with waves of up to three meters. However, the aircraft must be used for civilian purposes to comply with Japan's 1967 self-imposed ban on arms exports as part of its post-World War II anti-militarist efforts. The ban was eased in 2011, allowing Japanese firms to bid for multinational weapons projects. Japan has exported technology or military hardware parts, but is now looking to expand its market by selling finished products as well. The plane can be used for non-military purposes, like search and rescue missions, as long as the "friend or foe" identification systems are disabled.
