Japan's first stealth fighter jet X2 makes its maiden flight, as the country moves to bolster air superiority over China.

X2 is built by Mitsubishi and developed by the Japanese Ministry of Defense Technical Research and Development Institute (TRDI).

The Mitsubishi ATD-X, now dubbed the X-2, was actually unveiled a year and a half ago, albeit in a much less intimate manner than the media event that occurred today. But with today’s reveal came many more details about this very important design.
