Chinese belligerents in the Indo-Pacific and having military friction with Tokyo over Senkaku Islands and in East Ladakh with India, Japan is considering taking up joint ventures within the defence sector in India for the development of weapons systems that can be locally manufactured in both countries and come as military aid in event of conflict for both countries.
Japan and India over the last few years have increased the frequency of military exercises between both countries but both are yet to collaborate on the sale of military weapons to each other.
India and Japan were close to inking a deal for the sale of 15 ShinMaywa US-2 amphibious aircraft for the Indian Navy with local production rights but the deal fell through due to the high cost of amphibious aircraft.
