Monday’s Sankei led with a report claiming that the ASDF is likely to conduct a joint drill with the Indian Air Force during this fiscal year, speculating that as the Indian side plans to mobilize its Sukhoi fighters, Japanese pilots will be able to engage in combat training with the Russian-made jets for the first time. As the PLA Air Force also uses the Sukhoi fighters, the papers said the planned drill will present the ASDF an opportunity to enhance its capability to deal with Chinese provocations in the airspace around the Japanese archipelago.
