Reported by Japanese Minstry of Defense
"One Chinese Y10 (twin prop) plane followed by another Y12 (a twin engine transport jet) plane, both were part of Chinese Maritime Custom were immediately followed by two Japanese Air Self Defense fighter jets in East China Sea. No incident reported as they did not enter Japanese Air Space." Paraphrased and translated.
I wonder how much truth or omission are in these reports? What if next time is a J20, or Suk 35 jets?
War can be easily started by trigger happy and gun ho pilot from either side.
