Global Times give a description of China’s new 4th-generation anti-stealth radars displayed at Paris air show that has just closed this week.

China’s integrated anti-stealth radar systems of YLC-8B, SLC-7 and SLC-12 radars and JY-27A, JY-26 and JYL-1A radars can not only detect and accurately find the position of stealth aircrafts but also guide missiles to shoot down them.

As a result, F-22s and F-35s are utterly unable to come close to China’s coasts to attack China.

The above-mentioned anti-stealth radars represent world most advanced long-range radar technologies.

They mark the speedy application of the integration of the coordinate surveillance and combined active and passive monitoring technologies and intelligent minute processing technology

The integrated system of JY-27A, JY-26 and JYL-1A codenamed “Sky Guard” is based on the experience in shooting down US F-117A stealth fighter in 1999 with a meter-wave anti-stealth radar.

JY-27A is the newest meter-wave radar much more advanced than that used 20 years ago to shoot down F-117A. It is an all-round digital array active phased array radar with agile wave beam scanning and strong task scheduling and resources management capabilities, which make it a strong multi-task and multifunction radar with much greater maneuverability and reliability in carrying out its tasks.

It adopts a series of new technology such as super resolution height measuring that is commensurate with complicate topography, continuous vertical coverage of air space and integrated anti-jamming technology. Such technologies enable it to overcome the traditional shortcomings of meter-wave radar that fails to cover low elevation, monitor airspace continuously or to measure the height of a target.

JY-26 is a UHF-waveband long-range three dimension early warning and guiding radar with duel frequency and super large aperture anti-stealth capabilities. JYL-1A is a new-generation S-waveband multifunction and multi-task radar with integrated capabilities of air defense early warning, anti-missile early warning, gun position detection and adjustment and airspace control.

In the system of YLC-8B, SLC-7 and SLC-12 radars YLC-8B is the core. It works at UHF-waveband, which due to its long wavelength can be diffracted by a stealth aircraft. It is thus able to serve as air battle command system and weapon interception system and can provide air force with integrated information of the position, distance, height and friend-or-foe nature of any target. It has strong intelligence integration and independent guiding capabilities.

SLC-7 radar in the system works at L waveband and has the advantages of high accuracy and maneuverability while SLC-12 in the system works in S waveband and is able to detect various targets such as conventional and stealth targets, drones, cruise missiles, air-to-ground missiles, static missiles and rocket artillery with high measuring accuracy and ratio of data.

The three radars supplement one another to form an anti-stealth early warning and monitoring system that can not only ensure detection of stealth targets but also guide air defense system in conducting accurate strikes.

The system provide a anti-stealth solution with complete types and wavebands for international users.

In the airshow, China also promotes its YLC-29 passive surveillance radar system that can detect a stealth warplane through its reflection of civilian FM radio signals. It may supplement the above two systems.

Some readers may wonder, since the systems are able to deal with China’s J-20 and J-31 stealth fighter jets, why China provide them for international users. To enable them to shoot down China’s stealth fighter jets?

China’s J-20 and J-31 have been developed for defending its airspace especially against the bully from US stealth warplanes.

China has no intention to attack other countries with its stealth warplanes. Selling the systems to other countries will enable not only China to recover its development costs but also other countries to resist US bully.

    Congratulations! Chinese engineers are second to none. Putting one of this UHF system on one of the Spraty’s islands will discourage US stealth jets coming in via her aircraft carrier or from PH which is probably not likely given Duterte disgust with Washington now.

    So for example, US carrier groups doing FON in the SCS with F35C version onboard, this will be defeated making the F35’s totally useless as Hainan will have the UHF system as well. F35C’s with about 600 NM combat radius probably operational next year, so China will be ready to keep it away. China should park her UHF radars at least 500 NM from Hainan to be safe, so probably one on Fiery Cross Reef, another on Subi/Mischief Reefs, but need to be covered before use to avoid corrosion from salty air.

    Finally China should export lots of these radars to countries buying F35’s so making the stealth totally useless. Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand should buy these UHF radars as Singapore will be buying the F35’s.

      …….And as a result the J-20 has been rendered useless and obsolete as well. This is before J-20 could even be deployed. Too bad. Turns out J-20 was a bad bet.

        Sorry you fail to read my post in full.

        I knew some readers would have the stupid idea as shown in your comment so that I have the following passages in my post:

        In spite of all the teachings you have received in various comments, you still seem to have hostility only but no wisdom at all.

          Radar obeys the laws of physics. These same laws are consistent all over the world. That includes China. This means that if this Chinese radar can really detect stealthy aircraft like the F-35 or F-22, then a Japanese or American version can detect the J-20.
          The next step is to build this stealth detecting capability into AWAC aircraft like the E-2 so that J-20s attempting to come after the carrier are detected hundreds of miles away.

        What’s the connection that F-22 and F-35 unable to come close to China, with J-20 being useless and obsolete? Is it because without F-22 and F-35, the the J-20 has no purpose? That’s a childish tantrum, even for American. Of course the J-20 is a bad bet, for the American. They cannot even match the J-20. They have to design a totally new aircraft, and they don’t have even the data, and the expertise.

        If you dig deeper, you will get to understand the F35 program is the biggest con job the Pentagon and MIC is doing to US taxpayers. This is not a plane that can defend itself and will need an armada of F22’s which is in limited supply to escort her. Even senator John McCain hate it as overly expensive and not really a defensible plane. The biggest Asian fools are Japan and Singapore forced to buy them.

        Together with the continual hypoxia problem, F35 will not be fully functional. It is the most expensive flying toys that is useful only against weaker enemies and serve like Christmas decorations during major events like an air show. Next time China should put on a demo of the UHF tracking capability in the Paris air show and show how useless F35 is, totally naked.

          If your statement is true then why is China working overtime to build their version of the F-35, the J-31?

          And for your information the F-35 performance wowed the crowd at the just completed Paris air show. You can see it on YouTube.
          The invitation is extended to J-20 to stop hiding and show what it can do before the world at one of the many international airshows being held this year.

          Better yet invite the J-20 to Red Flag in Nevada to come participate in the world’s most intense air combat training exercise. India did it. What does China have to lose?

          Let the world see if Chinese pilots can back up all the bragging they have been doing about how professional they are.

            F35 Paris airshow just an advertisement to sell more jets. It never go higher for fear of hypoxia, so not ready for prime time. It is only good for very limited mission for now.

            Chinese J20 for border and coastal defense against US and VN in particular. There is no such radar in VN, no such radar on CSG or even Okiinawa, so J20 is invisible.

            J31 a bit less capable but useful for export markets perhaps 5X cheaper than F35, so say Singapore one F35 vs Indonesia or Malaysia five J31, Singapore lose big time PLUS China will sell the UHF radars together with the J31 package. So F35 buyers are fools taken for a ride by US.

    It makes sense to export competent radars if the goal to develop infrastructure in other countries. development policies wouldn’t be successful if the US idealism was allowed to freely destroy other countries like it has been.

    Anything China exhibited at the Paris Airshow is available for sale. It can be sold to Iran, Russia, North Korea, any country which has a problem with America. I’m pretty sure China has even more advance radars they don’t reveal at foreign airshows.
