Topic: AEW systems


I was wondering is there any alternatives to the American AEW systems in the world, the E-3 sentry is the main one i know of but i think it is getting a bit old now, i had read somewhere the australia was getting an AEW system on an arbus but i dont know if this was true! thanks i am just curious.

There are Russian ones, and the Israeli one...Dont remember the names though. Ill go check....

EDIT:
Here we go...Israeli one callled "Phalcon". Based on 707, with an Israeli made Radar.
There is a Sweedish one called Saab 340 AEW&C.
The Russians had the Ilyushin-38 "May", and the Briev/Ilyuusin A50 "Mainstay".
I assume that there are more, but those are a few. Those are AEW&C planes, but there are other catagories that can be considered as espects of AW.
