EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. - The Air Force conducted another successful hypersonic test off the Southern California coast on July 12, 2022. The Air-Launched Rapid Response Weapon Booster Test Flight-3 was the 12th flight for the program and third release demonstration. The AGM-183A weapon system reached hypersonic speeds and primary and secondary objectives were met.
"E-3 cannot see stealthy aircraft like J-20 out to long ranges where it can be useful, that's why I need that E-7"
For all the mockery the j-20 gets its RCS is somewhere near 0.01-0.1 sqm RCS at worst. That is good enough for the j-20 to get close enough to fire it's pl-15 on a superhornet or E-3. The question is whether the Americans can reliably detect the j-20 without using radars like the Rafale does.E-3 has passive as well as active capabilities, that also appears to be the opinion of some random Chinese guy. The US has had stealth technology for longer than anyone else, so they're probably experts in knowing how to detect it.
