J17 is operating in VHF-Band 2D air surveillance and target acquisition radar that is designed for detecting low-flying aims. The VHF range is particularly advantageous for action against so-called stealth aircraft. The relatively narrow-band Yagi antennas are mounted on a telescopic mast. The flat antenna in front of the traverse is used by the secondary radar (IFF).
