China's new radar said to detect U.S. F-22 stealth fighter
The new phased array named JY-26 was showcased at the 10th China International Aviation and Aerospace Exhibition in Zhuhai.
Designed to detect fifth-generation stealth fighters, the JY-26 phased array radar is capable of high accuracy, target tracking, and separation, and can operate up to a range of 500 kilometers.
Chinese media reported recently that the JY-26 radar had spotted an F-22 Raptor stealth fighter when it flew over South Korea during a recent military exercise.
