Members of a tank unit of Japan's Self-Defense Forces (SDF) riding on Type-10 armoured tanks take part in a military review during the annual troop review ceremony at Asaka Base in Asaka, near Tokyo, in this October 27, 2013 file picture. Mitsubishi Heavy Industries has lost a potential deal to supply tank engines to Turkey because of restrictions that remain in place on Japan's military exports, officials in Turkey and Japan said. The development shows the limits of Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's effort to dismantle a near total ban on Japanese weapons exports that has shut the country's defence contractors out of overseas markets since World War Two.
