Description: The Type 346 is a multi-functional active phased array radar developed to fit into the Chinese Navy destroyers equipped with advanced area air defense capability such as Type 052C and Type 052D classes. The radar system is intended to detect and track several hundreds of airborne targets such as fast jets and helicopters as well as surface threats such as fast speed boats and sea-skimming anti-ship missiles. The Chinese Type 346 is similar to the US Navy's SPY-1 active phased array radar mounted on AEGIS-equipped destroyers and cruisers. The Type 346 radar system entered service in 2004 onboard the lead ship of the Type 052C class which was the first boat equipped with the Chinese AEGIS.

The People's Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) has provided the Type 346 radar to six Type 052C destroyers and has plans to build 16 Type 052D air warfare destroyers.
