Under development by the Japanese defense Agency as a replacement for their P3C fleet. Should have 4 (japanese, IHI) turbofans, an Orion like hull, boeing like tail & swept wings.

Maritime Patrol Aircraft (P-X) Under development to replace the current P-3C.

Looks like a expensive program ... Japanese billions, quality, reliability and high tech electronics ?

Will this be the long term P3C replacement for the hundreds of P3´s around the world ?

looking at the airframe & wings I can see thsi aircarft as basis for AWACS, Tanker and EW variants. Stretched it could even look like an airliner .. however 4 engines are expensive for an airliner this size. Cross section looks like that of the P3.

A solution must be find to replace the hundreds of Orions flying around the world. Some are getting very old..
