it is mostly to counter enemy EW and maybe to engage in EW. The range is limited by the gunsI saw a video and pic of the 003 carrier's CIWS radar. It's rectangular in shape and looks different than the previous 1130 CIWS guns' round dish radars found in 055. The narrator claimed it's a new 相控雷達 AESA(?) radar that allows the 1130 gun sees and engages incoming missiles farther. She didn't mention how much further the CIWS can engage. It's excellent China installs a small AESA radar onto a small but critical anti-air systems.
Chinese naval aircraft battle group in full force they look very deadly with these new 100000 tonnage type 003 along with type 055,052D destroyers and type 054 frigate and yuan subs will definitely chalkange USA not only in south china sea but in Pacific sea
With KJ 600 they will be even more deadly against super hornets attack on Chinese battle group
003 is not designed to challenge the U.S. navy anyway. It's just a power projection tool. The flying wing bomber is.Oh well, grow up, get mature, calm down and hold your horses ... for now it remain on the pier for fitting out for almost 1 if not 2 years , then trials will begin, which again will take more than one year and even if then handed over to the PLAN it will not be a "big threat to USA" but a single then unproven carrier which will pave the way for more, but I'm pretty sure the PLAN knows exactly the value of this asset and this is not to "spread for against the USN"!
Stick to facts talk, this forum is not for you to spew personal hatred loser. If you cannot stay neutral and stick to ethics, please resign from moderator postI know a fourth option: it is a common practice done all over the world and you are again spreading lies of fabricated plain stupid theories just in order to look very smart!
Thanks for reminding me on Ford class covering its EMALS.
Thanks for reminding on USS Ford Class when launched. Guess it's for the same reason

engagement range won't change. 30mm rounds would start falling off at around 10km. the APFSDS rounds shot by these CIWS cannons would suffer even more due to lowered projectile mass.I think besides improving engagement range, the new radar allows the gun to engage low RCS or stealthy missiles. This is great thinking, ahead of the curve.
