    funding
    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

    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.

    more expansive
    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

    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

    p2prada@@@

    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.

    good info
    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

    *more coverage
    *less expansive
    *the upgraded y8 is a better platform than saab 2000 with a much greater range
    *reliable source
