Chinese Radar Can Detect, Track, Guide Hitting F-22, B-21, etc.Posted: May 15, 2020
In National Interest’s article “Not Good: China Claims It Can Find and Track the F-22” by Michael Peck on October 8, 2019, the author says that the physics Chinese experts claim about Chinese radar’s capabilities to detect, track and guide long-range missiles to shoot down F-22 and other stealth warplanes “seem plausible”. That means he cannot deny the claim. He, however, has to ask: “How easily can the Chinese meter-wave radar be spoofed or jammed? How vulnerable are these radar complexes – comprising multiple antennae – to being destroyed by missiles?”
That is practical. Since China has such powerful radar, what the US can do is but to spoof, jam or destroy the radar by missiles. He does not know whether and how the US can do that as he has no answers to his questions!
