Kawasaki P-1

The Kawasaki P-1 (previously P-X, XP-1) is a Japanese maritime patrol aircraft developed and manufactured by Kawasaki Aerospace Company. Unlike many maritime patrol aircraft, which are typically conversions of civilian designs, the P-1 is a purpose-built maritime aircraft with no civil counterpart and was designed from the onset for the role. It has the distinction of being the first operational aircraft in the world to make use of a fly-by-light control system.

The first prototype flew on 28 September 2007. On 26 March 2013 the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF) took delivery of the first two operational P-1 aircraft as a replacement for the P-3C Orion.
