Chinese scientists say they have a radar system that can spy on stealth jets. That is bad news for the US Air Force’s stealth jets, the F-22 and F-35.

According to National Interest, stealth aircraft are designed to be unobtrusive by conventional radar systems, while long-range radars are capable of reconnaissance. China will now build a network of long-wavelength radars as a group, and its system will be so dense that it will not only be able to detect stealth aircraft, but also to shoot down them with anti-aircraft weapons.
According to Chinese media reports, China has acquired the technology and is one step ahead of other countries in the military. Wu Jianqi, a scientist involved in implementing the radar system, told the Global Times that air defense radars capable of detecting one-meter-wave aircraft have never been seen in other countries. But Russia already has such a system, and the United States does not, the National Interest states.
