    During the 1980s the U.S. military wasn�t interested in an updated version of the F-16 so they passed on the opportunity. Japan was replacing some of their aging fleet and decided to develop the new F-16 Agile Falcon in cooperation with Mitsubishi and Lockheed Martin. Production began in 1996 with the first aircraft being delivered in 2000. The new aircraft was named the F-2 and soon earned the nickname �Viper Zero�. Although the F-2 looks similar to the original F-16 it is larger in almost every aspect.

    In June 2010 Mitsubishi F-2A 03-8557 c/n M1057 was delivered to the JASDF and in March 2011 was re-registered as 13-8557. In 2013 13-8557 was one of three aircraft representing the 3rd TFS at the TAC Meet at the Misawa AB. They were painted as �Samurai Spirits� and on the tail is a stylized 3 with a silhouette of a jet behind it and a Samurai Helmet squadron logo below the serial. On October 5, 2014 13-8557 transferred to the 8th Wing/8th TFS based at Tsuiki AB.
