Even as China faces an increasingly hostile neighborhood, it is expanding its military capabilities. According to a report by the state-run Chinese Global Times, China has developed a stealth detection radar.

The reports describe the radar as one of the “star products” at the Nanjing exhibition, which ends on Saturday. The radar is touted as capable of detecting stealth aircraft, including drones and low-flying missiles.

The so-called “YLC-48 radar” is portable and, according to the Global Times, can be carried by a soldier. The report states that the radar can conduct missions in all weather conditions and can be deployed and withdrawn with ease.

China is traditionally and comparatively considered to be somewhat weaker in its shipping assets. But in the last few decades it has rapidly developed its naval forces.

China has now deployed its first advanced amphibious assault ship and two more ships. According to local media, President Xi Jinping himself attended the commissioning ceremony.

The Hainan, Dalian, and Changzheng-18s entered active service on Friday. Of these ships, the Hainan is China’s first amphibious assault ship of the Type 075. The Dalian is a Type 055 destroyer, while the Changzheng-18 is a nuclear-powered submarine.
