China aiming to become global fighter jet supplier with cheap new radar

Updated 2017-05-22 15:01:23 CGTN

China has developed a cheap, lightweight radar for fighter jets as it bids to supply more such technology to developing nations.

Announcing the breakthrough on Monday, state-owned aviation and defense company AVIC explained that it features a new cooling system and said it will be installed in nearly 1,000 existing Chinese jets, increasing their combat effectiveness.

The technology should prove attractive to Pakistan, with whom China already has an arrangement to supply fighter jets, and other developing countries, said sources with the AVIC's Radar Research Institute.
