We are investigating the Kawasaki P-1 maritime patrol and anti-submarine warfare aircraft and whether you can compete with the P-8 Poseidon in the international market. #P1 #jmsdf #patrolaircraft

Due to some copyright issues, we had to remake our Kawasaki P-1 video.

We especially thank the Nigel Woolley (@NigelWoolleyaviation) and 山本一郎 (@ch-xv4jy) channels for allowing us to use its beautiful footage.


Why did the Japan Maritime Self-defense Force demand the development of an indigenous maritime patrol and anti-submarine warfare aircraft?
What are the general characteristics of the P-1?
What variants of the aircraft does Japan plan to develop?
Does the P-1 have a chance against the P-8 in the international market?

Welcome to our channel. All the weapon systems are like books. They tell us their stories. The Weapon Detective investigates these books, reads between the lines, analyse, and tells the untold. At the dawn of the Second Cold War, the fruits of new projects give us clues about the future. But current weapon systems also have their own stories. You can find in our videos technical information, historical backgrounds, what happened during the development processes, combat experience and political projection. Let’s investigate the weapons together when the Second Cold War is rising.
