Zeke I tried to get some information on the Maritime Patrol Aircraft (P-X) and Cargo Transport Aircraft (C-X) some time ago.

http://www.airliners.net/discussions/military/read.main/15850

Totally in house designed aircraft, including engines, must cost many bilions.

A project kept out of the media succesfully for years. The P-X should fly next year and hardly any drawing / picture / progress to find.

Only picture I know of the C-X..


The assembly hall for the C-X was opened in 2004:

Right so. I was referring to the engine developped for the P-X.

If this is brand new turbo fan engine in the RJ trust category odd it doesn't get more attention / promotions.

Looking closer at huge Japanese Aerospace R&D budgets and ambiteous projects (JAXA/JADC) it is amazing how domestically focussed it all is.

Combined with close by East China production power I think we are looking at a sleeping aeospace bear here..

What are the constrains?

Ok, but how about civil aircraft. They should be able to for years, they do major parts of the 787.

Found another picture of the P-X, that is suppose to fly in 2007. One up in terms of range & capasity it seems.

Why does the P-X has four engines ?
Wouldn�t it have winglets you could think it is Lockheed project from the sixties and the trial of putting the Electra into jetage in order to compete with Convair Corronadas, 707s and DC 8s.
I like it though  Wink Four engine planes do look so much cooler than twins. Too bad Japan does not sell these aircraft would love to see this two with the German Airforce/Navy.



It will forever be a McDonnell Douglas MD 80 , Boeing MD 80 sounds so wrong
