China has developed a long-range early warning radar system, similar to that of the US and Russia.

The photos of the array warning system, which is similar to US PAVE PAWS, were taken last May, according to Guancha Syndicate, a political website in Shangai. 

The long-range radar system is able to detect targets 5,500 kilometers away. It can be used to direct the People's Liberation Army's air defense missiles to intercept incoming ballistic missiles.

The system is established at a space monitoring station in Heilongjiang province in the northeast region of the nation. Internet users have posted photos of similar facilities in Xinjiang in China's northwest and Fujian in the southeast. The warning system in Xinjiang is apparently designed to monitor Siberia while the one in Fujian at check Alaska and Japan.

The Guancha Syndicate also stated that with early warning systems in various regions, China will have a comprehensive anti-ballistic missile defense capability like the US.

The PAVE Phased Array Warning System (PAVE PAWS) Cold War system of computer and radar equipment was developed by the US to detect and characterize a sea-launched ballistic missile attack against the nation.
