Chinese Radar Can Detect, Track, Guide Hitting F-22, B-21, etc.


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!

    Your comment on J-20 is irrelevant. Please make your comment on my post related to J-20.

    But like any radar the site can be detected, attacked and neutralized allowing attacking aircraft to blast holes in the Chinese designed detection network and penetrate at will. China again has accomplished nothing.

      I know what I say, the long-wave radars are extremely hard to destroy. Moreover, the Chinese JY-27 is more mobile, more powerful, harder to jam, harder to be located, mobile, smaller than those of Iraqi radars. This radar can detect any stealth aircraft in the world.

      Furthermore, Chineses, as Russians are already deploying the new generation of quantum -photonic- radars, thus there are none chances for any stealth aircraft in the world to hope to hide. Even the west is admitting this fact :
      https://asiatimes.com/2019/09/stealth-killer-quantum-radar-actually-works/

      For these reasons; Chinese like Russians like any other developed countries they are reluctant to invest infinitely money in a lost cause, unlike the US. If indeed the J-20 does have interesting stealth features, nevertheless it is not its only essential assets. Because J-20 integrates quantities of Chinese breakthrough beginning by the WS-15 -thrust vector 3D-, following its powerful avionics, and new weapons that outclass any US counterparts -because the new generation air to air missile can reach at least Mach-6 if not more-.

      The new challenge now is hypersonic technology and in this field, China, Russia are largely ahead.

        I want to add something that many of you may be ignored.
        With the J-20 China is not only at the step to demonstrate to the world its fantastic know-how, and capable to build a modern fighter bomber on its own, and henceforth RPC joined the closed club of countries in the world capable to design and produce modern aircraft composed by Sweden, France, UK, US, and Russia.
        As Chan Kai Yee said, it was done for a while, with the new and most powerful jet engine in the world the WS-15. But China is struggling to embed the photonic radar with hypersonic weapons that will completely upset the air combat.
        It is noteworthy to add that the radio photonic radar was operational in the early 2010’s in Russia ground, naval, and air forces. The prototype was available somewhere during the middle of 2000’s. At this date it detected any stealth aircraft in the world, Americans were furious and enraged after realizing that all their fleet could be detected so that any US substantial advantages were nullified. For that reason, R. Gates and the US leaders decided to stop the F-22 production and closed the production lines, and they bet on fighters belonging to IV the generation like F-16, F-18, F-15, and F-35.
        With agreements and strategic cooperation between China and Russia, Chineses obtained this strategic asset too. They continue to develop and improve radio photonic technologies, and they are capable of deploying these new radars on the ground, and on see. And now it is decided to embedded on their fighters including J-11, J-10, J-15, and J-16.
        As stealth technology is no longer an asset now, the new challenge is the hypersonic area, for that reason, J-20 as the others chineses fighters will integrate quantities of new assets in the next future.
        However, as I said in the previous comment the greatest bottleneck for China is its fleet of air cargo. To project its forces around the world China urgently does need an asset like an AN-225, or AN-124, Chineses must produce them on their own asap. I don’t know where is China regarding the AN-225 as the US blocked Chinese’s access to this strategic technology.
        Once this step will be met, nothing could deter the development of China.

            If it is true it would be an important step. However, the ultimate milestone will be when China will produce entirely 100% such aircraft on its own. If it succeeds China will be as US among the top power in the world. And I think China can, and China will be and do it next. To buy AN-225 is not enough for China, PLAAF needs an important fleet of such aircraft.
            If you do have information, I wish to learn it, please share.

    The long wave radars are extremely hard to jam, and even more to destroy, except to send risky operations by commandos. This is what US commandos did during Gulf War January 1991, in the goal to allow their F-117 to fly. At that time the long-wave radars were big, huge, and easier to find, and destruct. Moreover, inside Iraqi army, Saddam had too many enemies. The treason came inside the fifth column inside the Iraqi army that allowed US commandos to destroy the -soviet built- Iraqi’s long-wave radar. For evident commercial reasons the US never admit this.
    The US stealth’s strategies lead them nowhere, for that reason, China, like Russia, gave up cumbersome, expensive stealthy aircraft, they bet on hypersonic. I don’t say the J-20 is not stealthy, but chineses focussed more on its maneuverability -WS-15 engine-, lethal hypersonic air-air missiles -able to reach Mach 6 and even more for the new Chinese air-air missiles that is in development-, and maybe the next step will be new engines that allow the J-20 to reach hypersonic speed.
    Moreover, no use to say more about why France, UK, Italy, Germany, Sweden never tried to build stealth aircraft. Because since the beginning stealth aircraft never worked.

      Is that a fact? So why is China spending tremendous sums of money trying to develop the J-20? Are you speaking for yourself about Chinese stealth being a failure?
