I mentioned about Type 346/A radars long time ago, even today nobody knows about their performance, and I saw some heated discussions compare to SPY-1. The only confirmation is 346/A are AESA, and the game did gave them better jammimg-resistence than SPY-1. However, many doubts were casted due to the smaller energy usage compare to SPY-1, as well as the powerplant in 052C/D are subpar to Burke, many analysts suggests they are at best have the same range, if Type 346 may incur some inferior outputs.
That's why the new 055 destroyer have a slightly bigger Type 346A than old one from 052D, thanks by richly provided powerplants. Yet, it's too soon to tell how far it can detect even the "output issue" has been solved. I remember thewood1 mentioned why Chinese were hesitant to install new sensors, and one of the reason could be the energy deficiency.
