PLA’s JY-26 radar said to have detected US F-22 over S Korea

China’s JY-26 counter stealth radar, which is said to have successfully detected a US Air Force F-22 fighter over the skies of South Korea, was among five radar systems displayed by the PLA Air Force at the 10th China International Aviation & Aerospace Exhibition, also known as the Zhuhai Airshow, according to our Chinese-language sister paper Want Daily.

If the JY-26 is able to detect the F-22, it will represent a serious threat to F-35 fighters purchased by Japan and South Korea in the future and may serve as the PLA’s answer to the US Asia pivot strategy.
