Sweden Finalizes AEW&C Contract With Pakistan
Pakistan, China ink deal to develop long-range radar - Hindustan Times
ZDK-03 Y8F-400 AEW
what role pakistan will play in this venture???
Saab 2000 ERIEYE AEW&C - Technical specifications
did u and china pay licence fee to Russia for copying AN-12???
since this project was based on older kj200 but this was developed as per requirements of paf with paf inputs
while since this was a jv
pak engineers might have not contributed to this project but must have learnt alot
with China help and our engineer whom were involved in the project we May even manufacture zdk03 in home once the Nescom electronics complex is completed.
Pakistan contributed less but learnt alot and got a better platform as well than the expansive saab 2000
by sapper about paf choosing the saab 2000
mazak mat karo bhai
plz dont ruin this thread
yes funded by Pakistan
I expect its a good idea for Pakistan to buy Chinese equipment, I dont think Americans would be motivated to do their best by maintaining Pakistan Military Equipment any more, I know I wouldnt.
why PAF not going for KJ 2000 ???
this is remotely close to what is with IAF.
acquiring il76 might be a problem
considering the airspace zdk03 and Erieye are enough
by next year we might have all those 8 awacs in service but we need Atleast 15 awacs in total(only i think so)
15 awacs should be the target for 2020-25.and this is pretty much Possible as we will have 8 awacs in service by 2013
while purchasing American equipment was the biggest mistake pak has ever made
ALWAYS PRONE KO SANCTIONS
such as in the case of f16
can you give break down of different AWAC with PAF.
3 erieye(yes 3 not 2.3rd one receiving announcement was not done but i can post pictures of 3 pakistani Erieye with different serial numbers but not now because the pdf site down)
2 zdk03 already in service while picture of third one in China emerged few months before.delivery of all to be completed by 2013
a total of 8 by 2013 end
After that paf might order more as well
since zdk03 is now like local stuff aka jft
i Am 100% sure that sapper said zdk03 has aesa radar
he further explained unlike kj2000 it doesnt provide full 360 degree coverage each seconds because it has only 2 aesa radar while the kj2000 has 3
I don't know who Sapper is, but fine, I will take your word for it.
As for the array distribution, yeah there are two and the dome rotates for a 360 degree capability. The radar itself works in different modes, so there will be 360 degree capability in some modes and no 360 degree capability in some. It works something like the E-2C/D.
So, I can tell you one thing. While there may be a PESA or AESA, whatever is fine. The AWACS will have 360 degree capability.
Maybe he is talking about the KJ-200 with the Balance Beam structure.
KJ-2000/Phalcon have 3 arrays because they are on larger aircraft and the size of the dome is big enough to house the 3 large arrays. The arrays on the ZDK-03 will be a little smaller and fit 2. It is fine. It does not degrade capability as much in some modes, but a lot of special features will be missing like Over the Horizon capability.
while there are no official specs of zdk03 except the official said that the range is better than Erieye(obviously they operate both platform there info must be more accurate)
even if the range is same it still holds edge over friend for paf
*the upgraded y8 is a better platform than saab 2000 with a much greater range
