The Type 346 radar is Chinese shipborne Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar[citation needed]. It entered service with the People's Liberation Army Navy aboard the Type 052C destroyers in 2004; the radar was used in conjunction with the HQ-9 SAM.


The radar mounted on the Type 052C has been called both the Type 346 and the Type 348.[citation needed]. It is not certain which designation belongs to the indigenous Chinese system described in this article, and which was given to a system imported to China from the Kvant Design Bureau of Ukraine. The Kvant radar operated in the C band and had a range of only 150–160 km.[1]
