Did i claim something? . Wait a second, I said assuming
. Oh wait, If i assume something i must be claiming it
Posted by ChinawhiteKJ-2000 is a much large plane with a much more powerful radar so im just assuming it can at least go 50km
more so about 500km
Funny attempt . As i remember it you were the one claiming with out any sources
Consider this the Chinese wouldn't be tring to aquire the Phalcon if it wasn't superior to anything the Chinese have.
You might want to consider the timeframe of this
. The deal was made in 1996. Thats 10 years about. This was more of a space filler because
chinese radar at the time was still primary platter arrays and not yet advanced. Considering the small purchase of only 1 plane while a further 3
could be possible this was more of a capability filled since china did not as of yet have a ESA radar.
Since then china has developed and mechanical phased arrays and electical phased array radars. So from the 1996 to now that is 10 years and in those
ten years china went from dish radars to Phased arrays
Do you think china was planning on only having 1-4 AWACS aircraft. Even now there are around 3-4 in testing. with about 5 more smaller Y-8 in testing
also. those radars were only intended as capabilty fillers. So dont compare different time scales
And considering the Phalcon is not the newest of technology and is 13 years old. It is not the most advanced technology either. And considering both
are different technoloies this is surprising you trying to say one is inferior to the other
Ahem, once again you forget what you say. You said that they would use AWACS type aircraft as one of the sensors to find CBG's for targetting
by this so called anti-ship ballistic missile.
No i was talking to mad scientist while you brought up the issue of chinese aircraft being with-in the limits of US fighters or US radar.
Look inot a technology called TVM. Its used on sams. The guiding radar paints the target and keeps radar lock on it until it hits the target. THe
AWACS will be flying some distance away and wouldn't be under immident danger from US fighters because its such a large distance away.
What the downside of this technology used on SAMs is they SAM radar has to keep radar locked on it unitl it hits and this leaves room for
anti-radation missiles. While the AWACS is not under pressure from Anti-radation missiles because of the sheer distance away. And a ballistic missile
can travel a lot faster than any fighter i know
