    What about air traffic control?

    There is J-4. It was a prototype/test of Mig-9 together with J-3, never went into production. So nobody knows until very recently like J-9, J-12, J-13 (all known date and design institute) and J-14 (nothing known).

    And we have DF-41.

    There are skipped or unheard 4s, but there are equally lots of skipped and unheard "lucky" 8s or 9s. Such as J-19?, J18?

    To everybody who still think CCP cares about the superstition shit, please be serious.;) (no offense intended). If CCP believes any of these craps it would not have survived to this day.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but also with CEC (Cooperative Engagement Capability), the powerful radar on the ship can direct for FFG which might not have the same detection range due to power constraints. (Or whatever is in battle group, other aircraft etc.)

    Same reason as of Ford class CVN. They are meant to be volume search early warning. They can also track their own aircraft from a longer distance for air traffic management, think of launching and recovering 40 aircraft that need a much bigger airspace than 20km.

    Their wives would certainly be very happy. I'm surprised they haven't started using robots instead.
