The original antenna of Type 751 radar was parabolic, and later a slotted array was also developed in the later production stage. The maximum range is 48 nautical miles, and it utilizes a 31 cm display. The radar can be integrated to electronic support measures and IFF. To support the urgent production need, Qingdao 3rd Radio Factory was also tasked with the production.
