    Btw, comparing radar performance based on type of array alone is, erm, misleading.
    Much less country-wide "know how".

    Radar tech and missile tech aren't the same things.

    Yeah, but China is ahead of the game in BOTH with the DF-21D and DF-26 ASBM along with the new quantum anti-stealth radar. BOTH programs are progressing steadily and surely. No other country could ever match it. Oh and don't get me started with the success of China's HGV program.;)

    Like I said before in anything: IT'S ALL ABOUT THE PROGRAM.:D

    Ballistic missile tech and non-ballistic missile tech also aren't the same things. High end weapons technology is very specific and not usually transferrable to other weapons systems.

    And yet keep designing, implementing and producing far more vulnerable, inferior subsonic sea skimming&supersonic missiles.
    Probably because PLA doesn't read forums.

    And keep underestimating China and you'll be sorry. China hating fan bois don't read science, history, and facts. Thank goodness the Pentagon and CIA doesn't hire you and your kind as analysis.:rolleyes::D

    Overestimating equally doesn't help.
    Explosive chinese military expansion is still in progress, and yet has much to fix(or create from anew).

    It's notable what US aren't in any hurry to increase naval ABM.
    Even more notable what despite some buzz in mass media, USN generally keep very modest approach to capability extension, one more or less decided on in mid-1990s, when impossibility of any recovery of soviet war machine became fact.
    Degree of menace felt by Pentagon&CIA is better described by their action than anything else.

    Making fun of China's ability will not change the fact that the programs are healthy and progressing as we speak. Keep ignoring the reality won't help either.

    Excuses are very convenient when one doesn't have a program of one's own to study, research, and build prototypes for testing and further evaluations. Pentagon and CIA lack of actions proves to us that they don't have a viable program going on. Enough said.:rolleyes: NEXT!!
