Yomiuri wrote that the Ministry of Defense has given up on its plan to install the U.S.-developed long range anti-ship missile (LRASM) on the ASDF’s F-15 fighter jet because the U.S. side had asked for a large increase in renovation costs. The ASDF is planning to install a domestically produced long-range missile and the U.S.-made joint air-to-surface standoff missile on its F-2 fighters as alternatives to the LRASM in response to China’s rapid modernization of its fighter jets.
