The drones are part of a five-year defense buildup program that also includes three new aerial refueling planes, three high-speed destroyers for the Maritime Self-Defense Force, two new Aegis destroyers equipped with missile defense systems, five new submarines, 99 combat vehicles, 52 amphibious vehicles and 17 tilt-rotor transport aircraft.
