Y-7J AEW aircraft

The Y-7J (03) Chinese carrier-capable tactical airborne early warning (AEW) aircraft and also name JZY-01. New Chinese AEW aircraft based on the Soviet-designed Antonov An-24 series.

Designated Y-7J, the aircraft seems be a sort of hybrid: the front half is based on the Xian Y-7, the Chinese version of the famous Antonov An-26; the tail section is much similar to the Northrop Grumman C-2 and, above all, the E-2 Hawkeye that is the U.S. AEW platform serving on all the American supercarrier.
