China has created two versions of the DRLO aircraft based on the Y-8 An-12

14

According to the forum of the portal china-defense.com, the PLA Air Force is adopting a new version of the “medium aircraft” of the AEWO with the KJ-500 index based on the Y-8 (An-12) transporter.


Unlike the KJ-200 version with a log-like radar, the new aircraft has a rotating circular radar antenna on the mast (as on the E-3, A-50, KJ-2000 and E-2).

      In this respect, China has been marking time for decades. And returning to the "mushroom" antenna fairing is generally a step back.

    Yes, they pulled it up already .... can it be that gray matter itself does not work? or cunning in the blood?

      The second one. Clever-assed red blood cells. laughing Why invent something that has already been invented. It’s also easier.

        you are humorous, Scandinavus is perplexed, but any engineer will tell you that to borrow an existing and most important working mechanism is a basic principle. No kidding. Why reinvent the wheel?

    Trickiness and copy paste. It’s a pity that the Chinese people used to come up with

    Just such a method is the most cost-effective / cheap.

    Everything is very simple - AN-12 is the best aircraft of all time, it is better not to create something even for the Chinese.

      It’s stupid to let out a military-transport aircraft. Here the Chinese are clearly copying us. On the other hand, the production of passenger aircraft in China is only getting better, and perhaps we will still see the AWACS aircraft based on the Comac C919 ...

    Well done. We should create something like that. And then the A-50 is still too expensive to drive sometimes. But patrolling the expanses of the Arctic is necessary.

    I don’t remember how many years ago the American AWACS plane wandered back to them for violating the border, then pulled the cat by the balls in negotiations on the return of property taking measurements from the product, when it came time to return the plane it was necessary to collect it in parts because they could not collect it back.
    More than 10 years have passed, they are only rolling out an option, moreover, the option is past, and how much more time will pass on landing.
    The dubious progress of Xerox technology is what I wanted to say, you are guaranteed behind, and you can also throw a fake to an amateur copy, so that to send

    On the basis of the AN-12! Even ours did not think of this before! I wonder how the strength characteristics of the glider "mushroom" were perceived? The Chinamians are joking, to all evil!
