We just had the biggest flood in centuries and now we need jets? What for? Plus Trump would not allow high tech out of the country, after payment, we might not get the technology.

Didn't Italy just reduce/cancel its order of Fighter jets from the US?

Just as the Lockheed offer is based on the F-22, Northrop offer is based on the YF-23.

Risks to Japan is higher, but offers greater opportunity to insert Japanese components into the YF-23 since it was never fully developed. In comparison, the modernized F-22 is a straight export offer; the whole thing would be assembled in the US and then flown to Japan for delivery.
