Key Points
  • Jane's has identified a JY-27A CVLO radar in imagery captured of Mianwali Air Base in Pakistan
  • A modern VHF-band system, China's JY-27A was not previously known to have been exported to Pakistan
Satellite imagery captured on 29 August has revealed a China Electronics Technology Group Corporation (CETC) JY-27A counter-very-low-observable (CVLO) radar at Mianwali Air Base (AB) in Pakistan. Imagery examination indicates the radar arrived between 5 June and 29 August and was not yet fully erected as of 2 September.

The sale of the JY-27A to Pakistan has gone unnoticed in the open press, with most air-defence-related reporting concerned with Pakistan's desire to import advanced Chinese surface-to-air missile (SAM) systems.

How significant is this threat?
AFAIK, its a volume scan radar. Similar in design(dare I say copied) to the LANZA long range volume scan radars that we've ordered. But then the LANZA uses tech from Raytheon and this is Chinese, I'll leave the judgement of quality up to you.

Volume scan radars provide great situational awareness, but they don't have enough resolution for targeting. This is because of their operating wavelengths being very long. Volume search radars also have either a directional bias or a slow scanning rate(one or the other). These radars are effective when large distances are involved.

At relatively short distances, this doesn't bring much of anything new to the table. As for how much a threat this is, I'd say about the same amount of threat that PA acquiring a new gun would bring.

Speaking of which weren't they buying the CZ assault rifle ? How is that going ?

PA has been testing the CZ-806/807 since 2016 and negotiations have been going on. I guess their current economy is holding em back. Also, POF recently released two new license manufactured rifles with one of them being AK-103. Since IA opted AK-203, there is a high possibility PA might go for an AK variant
