Description

China's first attempted to develop an Airborne Early Warning aircraft. It was based on a Tu-4 (Soviet B-29 copy) airframe outfitted with turboprop engines and a Type 843 rotordome mounted on top of the aircraft. However, the radar and equipment was too heavy and the KJ-1 did not meet PLAAF's requirements, thus the project was cancelled in 1971.
