The Type 14 radar is a large air radar.
Since it used a British radar as reference, it has higher precision compared to other anti-air radars.
Since its aerials are large, it is mainly equipped on large ships, such as Battleships, Carriers and Heavy Cruisers.

The Type 14 was a shipboard system designed for long-range, air-search applications. With a peak power of 100 kW and operating at 6 m (50 MHz), this weighed a huge 30,000 kg. Only two of these systems were placed in service in May 1945, just at the end of the war.
However the illustration of the air radar probably based from the captured SCR-268 radar, which was reversed engineered by both IJA and IJN in a rare cooperative effort.
