Photos of the day: WZ-19 millimeter wave radar platform variant inducted into PLA Army Aviation service

This Chinese "AH-64D Apache Light" variant featuring a millimeter wave radar platform similar to that of An/APG-78 Longbow made its first pubic debut at the 2017 China Helicopter Expo.   The new millimeter wave radar is geared to improve WZ19's target acquisition as well as its reconnaissance capability.

Existing WZ-19 already in service can be retrofitted with this new millimeter wave radar enhancement in due course.
