Pakistan has installed a Chinese JY-27A anti-stealth radar at an airbase in Mianwali, Jane’s Defence Weekly, a magazine reporting on military and corporate affairs, reported.
According to report, satellite imagery on August 29 has revealed that a JY-27A radar developed by China Electronics Technology Group Corporation was installed at the Mianwali airbase.
The report said that the “counter-very-low-observable” radar may have arrived in Pakistan between June 5 and August 29.
The Chinese JY-27A long-range air surveillance and guidance radar is not only capable of detecting advanced stealth aircraft but also guiding missiles to destroy them, a senior Chinese radar designer had told Global Times a few months ago.
The radar could be deployed on vehicles, on land and warships, the Global Times reported quoting the Chinese military officials.
