    I know. I just say, there is no contradiction: this is an intended feature, a very old one at that.

    IIRC the Irbis-E max range is at full power with a rather slow scanning rate (about 400 km for a 3m^2 target). I remember comments sometime back at AFM forum that if the Su-35 used its radar like that, passive sensors of the F-22 and F-35 will light-up handsomely. One analog given was like shining a lighthouse beam. Both

    Idea is, this mode is used under external guidance(say, ground-controlled intercept environment or any other source), i.e. when fighter already knows where to search and only needs to get weapon-quality data to engage.
    Against 4th generation targets, it allows to bluntly outrange them in detection and engagement planning.
    Against 5th gens - engage(ambush) targets unreachable otherwise, getting radar return at reasonable ranges through simple power output. Not the worst possible situation for the 4th gen fighter in an unfavourable match.

    Not many deny the Russian contribution. Some scientists from SibNIA, TsAGI and other research and tech institutes have lived in China since the '90s. I believe our very own flateric has some Chinese connection. But the dismissive tone of Piotr Butowski's article is strange.
