    So in addition to the truck mounted variant, you have the six wheeler variant for the HQ-17A. Via LKJ86 at the PDF.

    The top radar, which is thin and has the IFF at the bottom, IMO is a PESA. This is the search radar. But the bottom radar, which is the track and fire control radar, that looks like a thick box, that's an AESA.

    Two more SAM related radars posted by LKJ86 at the PDF.

    I wonder what's the rational behind fielding HQ-6A, HQ-12A, and HQ-22 (it appears in limited numbers), which would complicate logistics as well as training, when their HQ-17A, HQ-16B and HQ-9B already provide comparable or greater air defence coverage, and with VLS being more flexible and faster responding at the same time?

    HQ-17 and HQ-16 - it's air defence systems of land forces. HQ-6A - it's specific system for air defence of important objects. HQ-12 and later HQ-22 was designed as inexpensive replacement of old HQ-2, since replacing all the numerous HQ-2 systems with the S-300\S-400\HQ-9, even for China, was expensive and delayed the modernization process.
    For example, after HQ-22 were adopted in service, only for 2016-18 years at least 13 former HQ-2 sites were replaced by HQ-22.

    I wonder if HQ-12A procurement for PLA has ended? And if HQ-22 procurement has taken its place, to replace the remaining HQ-2 in select units? Or if the procurement of both is still going on, side by side.
