Abstract : For various reasons, the United States has generally tried to discourage its allies from developing their own major weapon sys- tems. Perhaps the most prominent example of this policy was America's insistence on cooperative development in the case of Japan's FS-X fighter aircraft. Did the outcome of the divisive struggle over the FS-X serve U.S. aims? What can be learned for future interaction on the FS-X program in particular and coopera- tive development in general?
