That was almost 6 years ago. Which was being compared with a previous model.I just found an old post from the original unveiling of the KLJ7A. It mentions the same 65% increase over the previous model. So safe to say the range of the radar is still around the original 170Km (plus/minus). What a grand confusion:
Post in thread 'JF-17 Block III's proposed AESA Radar KLJ-7A'
In the current article, the prototype of the AESA has a range of 81nm, and its current production version 6 years later is 65% enhanced over the prototype.
This is further corroborated by it exceeding the range of all current and future missiles the Thunder is going to carry. PL-15 has a range greater than or equal to 200km.
81nm = 150km approx
Which is the initially stated range of the KLJ-7A on an NRIET brochure.
Which can be interpreted as the prototype version.
