Little Flying Dragons Of China

I understand the reason for the datalink for target updates, by why is another radar needed? Wouldn't the parent aircraft's radar be more powerful/sensitive, especially in the case of the H-6J?

The pod probably uses a specific frequency, likely Ka or Ku band, and it also has a rear facing antenna so that the plane can turn away from the target and continue sending updates.

There are some rumours that retired J-6 are being converted to unmanned strike craft.

Reminds of how Japan turned about 10 retried F-104s into unmanned drones. They got shot down by F-15Js.

In early October, J-15s over the Bohai Sea simulate attacking a target on an island and intercepting fighters on blue team.



J-15s conducted "partner refueling" training at night in late July.



Some J-15s trained in air-to-air combat over the Bohai Sea in a red vs blue team format in March. A video about that is in the link following the quote.

The link is still providing updates on spotted aircraft. I've been checking it every once in a while and only seen it increasing. From the 61 modern H-6 aircraft (61 H-6Ks) spotted by Nov 2017 to now at 92 modern H-6 aircraft (82 H-6Ks, 6 H-6Js, and 4 H-6Ns). That's plus 31 in 2.5 years.


105 modern H-6 aircraft (87 H-6Ks, 14 H-6Js, and 4 H-6Ns) have been spotted by now.
