First Showing: KJ500 AWACS prototype

After a successful introduction of 11 KJ200 "Balance Beam" mid-size AWAC into PLAN-AF and PLAAAF service, the Chinese military is switching gear to a fixed rotodome based approach for housing their three ASEA radars.

Newly constructed KJ-200 AWAC spotted.

Notice the extra "antennas" on top of the cockpit.

The current KJ-200 service model. Notice there are no antennas in the "forehead"

The external structure of the KJ-200 is very similar to the Brazilian radar aircraft, builded by the Embraer. The biggest problem here is that the own government does not buy its products of defense.
