China Deploys Over-the-horizon Radars to Counter THAADPosted: March 16, 2017
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.
