    I don't believe that it is EASA, why need to turn it mechanical?

    this is the main problem with Russian hardware, because lack on technology they are still with cold war technology. Every one is making the radar smaller but the Russian are still the same, doesn't matter EASE or PESA still to big. To fly that big radar you need a big plane, i mean look to the americans. Small and they are using civil aviaton plane. No need for big millitary heavy big plane.

    The rotodom rotates. E-2D's rotodom also rotates while the radar is AESA.

    E-2D AESA rotates.

    While the APY-9 does rotate inside the E-2D’s dish-shaped radome to achieve 360-degree coverage, the crew of the aircraft can control the antenna rotation speed to focus on an area of interest according to NAVAIR. Further, the 18-channel passive phased-array ADS-18 antenna has the ability to steer its radar beam electronically.

    No aesa and latest update was in 2009, and us navy doesn't want to scrap a lot of awacs. Still not a argument from your side, empty argument.

    Russian awac lacks on AESA technic, and you comparing with 60 years old awac what is updated 10 years ago for the last time. Next time they will use a new awac us navy. The latest awac from Russia use no EASA, thats for now the fact.

    Yeah it has AESA. Even Russia's rival Americans admit it.
