Publication: Monitor Volume: 2 Issue: 157
In what some observers are interpreting at least in part as a message to Beijing, Japanese defense officials indicated on August 23 that Tokyo hopes to send several military pilots to Russia to train on advanced Russian Su-27 jet fighters. Japanese pilots would reportedly like to become familiar with the highly-praised aircraft, which is the centerpiece of China’s plans to modernize its own Air Force. (Reuter, UPI, August 23)
