The smaller radar to the right is much more advanced. Official label for it is still unrevealed.I'm not an electronics expert, but that radar on top of Type 075 seems so outdated, so Russian...
OK, I understand that maybe LHDs or LSDs don't need something much better, but I think that frigates should need.The smaller radar to the right is much more advanced. Official label for it is still unrevealed.
The top radar on the 075, Type 382, is the same radar you see on the Type 054A. Its certainly has aged, and the design goes back to the Soviet Navy in the Cold War, but its not any more outdated than the SPS-48 search radar still used on the Nimitz, Wasp, America and San Antonio classes. Still, those US ships are quite older even if they remain in service for years to come and, and succeeding LHDs and LPDs are going to use something else. Type 382 radar is still used with the Liaoning and Shandong as a supporting radar, but the Type 075 might be the last application of the Type 382 radar given that a possible successor is already on testing.
You still have to remember that the second radar installed on the Type 075 is quite advanced and the first of its Type installed on a ship.OK, I understand that maybe LHDs or LSDs don't need something much better, but I think that frigates should need.
