Boeing announced on 28 July that it had signed a direct commercial sale agreement with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) to modernise Japan’s fleet of F-15J fighters into a Japan Super Interceptor configuration.

It falls under a Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) approval worth $4.5 billion that was granted by the US in October 2019.
