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.

央视新闻客户端3月27日消息,近日,海军舰载航空兵部队在渤海某空域组织歼-15舰载战斗机进行大强度多课目飞行训练,检验飞行员空中对抗、战术突防等多种技战术水平。

记者在现场看到,数架歼-15舰载战斗机依次升空,奔向预定海域。此时,扮演蓝方的战机已组成战术编队,对红方海面模拟目标开始发起进攻。巡逻的红方战机搜索到目标后,立即对蓝方飞机进行拦截。为避免与红方交战,蓝方战机利用云层遮挡,展开超低空掠海飞行,快速完成打击任务。

海军舰载航空兵某部飞行员 孙明杰:空中态势瞬息万变,对抗中双方战机高速机动,争相占据有利位置,这就需要我们飞行员具有较强的战场态势感知能力,迅速作出判断,果断决策,对目标实施压制。

训练中,红方战机采取调整航线、大角度机动等战术动作重新锁定蓝方战机,成功实施模拟攻击。每个飞行架次结束后,各机组对空中动作、战术协同、攻击效果等进行复盘分析,最大限度把飞行架次转化为实战能力。

海军舰载航空兵某部参谋长 邓伟:在连续多天的高强度训练中,我们将战术编队、低空突防、空中拦截等多个实战化科目进行有效融合,提升飞行员战场态势感知、综合效能运用、武器全功能使用等能力,为部队执行远海多样化任务打下坚实的基础。

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.
