China developing spy plane to operate from aircraft carrier
BEIJING: China is developing a new surveillance plane designed to be launched from its aircraft carrier and fitted with a radar system to spot enemy stealth jets.
State media confirmed for the first time on Monday that China was building its first carrier-borne early-warning plane (AWCS) called the KJ-600, Hong Kong-based South China Morning Post reported on Saturday.
Chinese military observers said the KJ-600 would be fitted with an advanced active electronically scanned array, or AESA, radar which could enable it to spot stealth aircraft such as America's F-22s and F-35s.

Look at the satellite pictures of Indian and Chinese airforce bases around doklam. If there is war between India and China over doklam, Indians will once again have to run with their dhotis.

The fun is that Aircraft Carriers and these spy planes can easily be detected with modern "active / passive" multimode sensors and neutralised. Stealth is good against radars. For China to develop even an export quality US "P" series maritime aircrafts will be a miracle.
