    No, its not. It's a Type 382 sea eagle 3D air/surface search radar. A development of the earlier 381. Compare and contrast between "Top plate" and the Type 382:

    Type 382 is clearly larger

    No where near ready enough mate. The Chinese Navy won't be ready to face the USN for more than a decade to come.

    Would love to see all Y9 transports and associated variants equipped made in-flight refueling capable as well as all the H6K's.

    So you're of the opinion that MRSAM's shouldn't be able to intercept cruise missiles at close range?

    HQ16, its naval equivalent HHQ16 and its export version LY80 can intercept cruise missiles from 3.5kms from the launcher. Is that supposed to be a bad thing? Mistral is basically a CIWS missile system mate... Why are you even bringing it up in this context?

    Because it is a sorry excuse of a test made for photo ops that only proves it can do the job of a $10k MANPAD. If you ever witnessed French and Indian tests there are multiple camera angels, day/thermal imaging and control monitors. HQ16 is touted as superior to Akash that intercepts Lakshya cruise missile target at 23km yet cannot display this in its testing.

    And there-in lies your problem. You're comparing footage of a test of an in-development system with footage of a military exercise of an operational air defense unit.

    The Akash footage is from a test. You can see contractors as well as armed forces representation. Its really informative footage, and as a defense enthusiast I enjoy watching it, but IT IS A TEST. The video title literally has "Trials" in it.

    The HQ16 footage is from an EXERCISE. There isn't going to be "IR and footage from multiple angles" because its not a demonstration. There are technical evaluators. Calm yourself and use a bit of logic during your anti-China dung slinging sessions
