The Japanese Ministry of Defense plans to complete the development of the unmanned fighter by 2035. According to the Nikkei newspaper, in 14 years the board should already see the sky.

The fighter is designed without a cockpit, this will save on its size. The drone will be cheaper than the manned counterparts. But a lot of costs are expected in the field of artificial intelligence and remote control.

2.7 billion yen (about $ 26.1 million) will be allocated for development. Flight control and monitoring technologies will be entrusted to Subaru Corporation. In turn, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and Mitsubishi Electric will create a system for instant data transfer between combat vehicles. Perhaps Japan will involve the UK and the United States in the development.

Prototype tests should take place in 2024.
