Time for Korea, Japan and Austrailia to get serous about the F35 Stealth Jet. And if it is delayed then Korea and Japan should consider the Silent eagle F15. Korea and Japan should get at least one squadron of the F35 B VSTOL model which could if need be , fly from their Helicopter carrier ships to off set the new Chinese Aircraft Carrier. And Thailand should ask the US to sell ten Harrier Jump jets to equip the Thai Aircraft carrier.

Since Korea usually has a trade surplus with Russia. They should ask Russia for two of these AWACS Helicopters for the Korean Dokdo Class Helicopter Carrier.
