"Its characteristic is that the electronic support measures/electronic intelligence (ELINT) radomes both at the front and rear part are much bigger than those of Y-9JB, which means it has “electronic attack” (EA) capability beyond ELINT collection. "

Are there any other sources that say Y9JB has EA capability? Couldn't bigger radome just mean better detection capability?

I think anyone who wants to follow that twitter account has already done so. Why repeating propagandas that have very little value?

Come on, it is not propaganda! It is just the post of a certain information most often spiced by images of the scrambled aircraft. As such these posts have indeed some value.
