Pakistan Air Force has deployed advanced surveillance high tech radars: Janes Report

- *Jane's* has identified a JY-27A CVLO radar in imagery captured of Mianwali Air Base in Pakistan

- A modern VHF-band system, China's JY-27A was not previously known to have been exported to Pakistan

Satellite imagery captured on 29 August has revealed a China Electronics Technology Group Corporation (CETC) JY-27A counter-very-low-observable (CVLO) radar at Mianwali Air Base (AB) in Pakistan.

Imagery examination indicates the radar arrived between 5 June and 29 August and was not yet fully erected as of 2 September.

The sale of the JY-27A to Pakistan has gone unnoticed in the open press, with most air-defence-related reporting concerned with Pakistan's desire to import advanced Chinese surface-to-air missile (SAM) systems.
