China Deploys Over-the-horizon Radars to Counter THAAD

The website of Chosun Ilbo says in its report “China is deploying radar for surveillance of Korean Penisula and Japan” on March 14 that China deployed an over-the-horizon radar (OTHR) in Inner Mongolia with a range of 3,000 km, much stronger than that of THAAD.

Now, China has begun work on the deployment of a new radar with the range of 5,500 km at Shuangya Hill, Heilongjiang Province. It is said that the over-the-horizon radar can detect F-35B stealth fighter jet.

    New and better ways to jam and fool over-the-horizon radars have emerged. China should not put all their eggs in one basket.

    And S Korea better not criticise. They and the Yanks created this mess and they have to clean it up.
    Remember in 2007 when George W Bush refuse to sign an international order not to weaponize space, China immediately responded by shooting down one of its old satellite to show what America can do Chna can do better. Here we have OTHR trumping THAAD and render all American military assets including F35 and F22 obselete.
