Its like Russian platform with most of flight related electronics plus avionics specially put together and collectively called A-50 married with Israeli EL/M-2075, communication aids and tactical payload, making it A-50EI. A-50 for platform and EI for radar. Phalcon is just popular name just like Hornet is for F/A-18.
