Sunday’s Mainichi reported that the Ministry of Defense has begun considering procuring electronic warfare aircraft equipped with the ability to intercept enemy radar and communications, adding that the ministry is aiming to enhance the SDF’s ability to respond to modern networked warfare. The paper noted, however, that since procuring electronic warfare aircraft might mean that Japan would acquire the capability to attack enemy bases, its consistency with Japan’s exclusively defense-oriented policy is likely to be called into question.
