China is systematically increasing the capabilities of its aircraft carriers, bringing them closer to American ships such as the Gerald R. Ford and Nimitz. As it became known now, the Chinese aircraft DRLO KJ-600 took to the skies for the first time. It took off from the Xi’an Aircraft Industrial Corporation in Xi’an.
The vehicle received a KLC-7 radar station equipped with an active phased antenna grille. In the future, the KJ-600 intends to include the newest Chinese aircraft carrier, which is currently being built at the Shanghai Shipyard.
