Chinese state-owned media have released video footage showing People’s Liberation Army Ground Force (PLAGF) units conducting training exercises with two of the vehicle-mounted electronic warfare (EW) systems paraded by Beijing on 1 October 2019: a confirmation that these systems have entered service.

The systems, both of which are mounted on 6×6 Dongfeng Mengshi CSZ181 armoured vehicles and have a crew of four, were shown in a 10 May report by the China Central Television 7 (CCTV 7) channel being operated by a unit within the 78th Group Army of the PLA’s Northern Theatre Command.
这两套系统均安装在6×6东风猛士CSZ181装甲车上,并有4名乘员,由中央电视台第7套(CCTV 7)频道在5月10日的报道中显示,该系统由中国人民解放军北方战区司令部第78集团军的其中一个部队操作。

Among other things, one of the systems uses two telescopic masts suitable for VHF/UHF/SHF spectrum monitoring and direction-finding, making it capable of communications electronic support measures (ESM).
除其他外,其中一个系统使用两个适用于VHF / UHF / SHF频谱监视和测向的伸缩式桅杆,使其能够进行通信电子支援措施(ESM)。

A total of five vehicles were shown in the CCTV 7 report, two of which have been fitted with these masts. It is not entirely clear what EW equipment is part of the system seen on the other three vehicles, but it is possible that this second system may be suitable for radar ESM.
CCTV 7报道总共显示了五辆车,其中两辆已经安装了这些桅杆。尚不清楚在其他三辆车上看到的系统中有哪些电子战设备,但这第二个系统可能适用于雷达电子支援测量(ESM)。

No information was disclosed in the CCTV 7 report about how many of either of these systems, the designation of which was not disclosed, are now in service with the PLAGF.
在CCTV 7的报道中,没有透露这些系统中有多少现在已经在中国陆军(PLAGF)服役,而这些系统的名称也没有透露。

The recently shown EW systems are two of several new platforms and weapon systems that were displayed by the PLA in a large-scale parade held on 1 October in Beijing to mark the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China.
