        If the Chinese want some cats it would be fairly easy for them to design and produce an EMCAT. They have lots of experts in electromagnetics.

          Yes, was speaking to the E-2C......Grumman makes good airplanes, but many of my friends who fly it don't have the greatest things to say about it these days. That being from a piloting standpoint, rather than a systems capability perspective

            Grumman used to make good airplanes.
            And carrier planes such as these, HQ typically gets squeezed out from every which way.

              Same image, but in link for for those who can't see it: http://alert5.com/wp-content/uploads...e7ea47b901.jpg

              This is the suppossed wind tunnel model of the "chinese Hawkeye".

              I guess they are going for some CATOBAR CVs after the STOBAR.

                True, and we don't have nearly the budget of the AF, or at least after all the other non-aviation assets in the USN inventory are addressed. I just find it humorous that they would copy such a dated design.

                  I am not sure it is a copy. They didn't have a E-2 and even if the configuration looks same you may find a lot of details coming from Y-7/An-24 than a E-2.

                  May be the reason they went for a turbo-prop solution is in engines after all.

                  They do have a working reliable 5000 hp Turboprop. They don't have a good working CF34 class high by-pass-turbofan.

                      I like the plane it looks interesting and kind of new, what type of engines will this thing have? Are they turboprops?

                          Of course. In this universe, this is E-2D WT model in BLR Aerospace wind tunnel.

                            Thank you for the clarification Flateric. I wasn't sure, hence I wrote suppossed on my post. It is clear that it is an E2 then, yet that chinese mistery plane is quite similar.

                            Here is the link from where I got the picture: http://alert5.com/2011/05/09/photo-w...inese-hawkeye/

                              I must apologize. This is me living in other universe, and Alert5 guys living in right one. Sorry.

                              compare tunnel interior to that that we've definitely seen before in connection to other Chinese projects

                                Oh man, those chinos are clonning everything. You're right flateric, it is deffinetely a chinese model, or at least a yankee model inside a chinese wind tunnel! That last seccion with a single window to the bottom left makes the diagnostic.

                                It will be very weird to see the actual plane once more photos are available, and even weirder to see them from a chinese CATOBAR.

                                Saludos Flateric.

                                  There is no point reinventing what's already working. To master it is the true challenge...
                                  One thing is sure, the US isn't going to like to see these thing flying since it's thank to AWACs platform they have such advantage over most potential enemies.
                                  Nothing is impossible, the word itself says 'I'm possible'!

                                    Yeah looks like that old NF-3 lowspeed tunnel in Mianyang in Sichuan Province.

                                      just for fun.

                                      oh no those Chinos are cloning f-16s!

                                          looks more like a shrunken version of the Yak-44E with a 6-bladed prop
