A Japan Maritime Self-Defense Forces US-2 search-and-rescue amphibian plane, manufactured by ShinMaywa Industries Ltd, is seen in this updated file handout photo released by the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Forces and obtained by Reuters on November 4, 2013. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's three-day visit to India, which started on January 25, 2014, is underscoring growing business and political ties between the two countries as they face mutual rival China. Japan is looking to sell ShinMaywa US-2i planes that could be outfitted for firefighting or as a kind of amphibious hospital and cost an estimated $110 million per unit.
