Now the Ministry of Defense officially declared "DF-26"

My understanding is that this DF-21D brigade (the first and only one so far?) has entered combat operation after test and trial of the missile since its establishment.
P.S. the type on the red banner is blurred in the original video, not by me.
Chinese navy’s new ‘compact’ radar will allow it to keep watch over an area the size of India
News of advanced Over-the-Horizon programme for carrier fleet emerges as senior researcher receives China’s top science award
Land-based OTH radars were first developed by the US and Soviet Union during the cold war, letting them keep watch over thousands of kilometres of territory by sending radio waves up into the ionosphere and bouncing them back to earth.
However, many of these facilities have since been shut down or suspended due to their vulnerabilities.
The radars need enormous amounts of power and have to be built on flat and open terrain.
Their immobility also makes them highly vulnerable to attack, prompting military planners to shift their focus to airborne early warning and control systems.
However, a senior member of Liu’s team confirmed to the South China Morning Post that the new system would be a ship-based OTH radar system.
They meant the area coverage of that radar is about the size of India for readers perspective.New OTH-Backscatter system mounted on ships.
Basically 1000km+ range using low frequency signals bounced off the ionosphere.
But I don't understand why they felt the need to mention India in the title, since it is irrelevant
