Japan Orders F-35

This is very good news for Lockheed-Martin.

I think that the devil will be in the details though.

The details that most likely cause problems is that, “But Japanese companies are likely to be excluded from work on the confidential and more lucrative stealth and radar capabilities of the fighters.”

Seeing as how Japanese defense contractors are constitutionally prohibited from exporting their wares, I think that this might end up a major area of contention with their defense contractors.
