Chinese military officials are demonstrating a range of drones and other aerial vehicles at a recent trade show. These include the CH-805 training drone, the concept CK-20 stealth target drone, and the SW-6 small "marsupial" drone. They are both designed to carry out reconnaissance tasks. SW-6 is also a prime candidate to the China drone "swarm", which involves hundreds small drones linked together.
Caihong drones debut
Chinese military officials just deployed eight Wing Loong 2 long-endurance medium-altitude drones and Caihong 5, a pair of Wing Loong 2, at a mixed military-civilian aircraft in western China. This deployment is the first major Chinese drone deployment. The drones have a similar design to the U.S. MQ-9 Reaper. These drones could become future military assets. Here is a closer look at Caihong 5.
China and Islamic countries have been friends for many years and have enjoyed successful win-win collaboration. Their cooperation has resulted in a new model that allows for peaceful coexistence across cultures. Chinese Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation opened the first Middle East-based factory for state-owned drones. The factory will produce drones of the CH-4 and CH-5 types and other equipment. It will also provide after-sales support to the Middle East.
Yilong/Wing Loong LE380 sensor Turret
The first variant of the Wing Loong family, the Wing Loong I, flew on its maiden flight in October 2007. The device can carry up four kilograms of payload and can reach speeds of 200km. A sensor turret is installed under the nose to allow for easy targeting of its sensors and payload.
The Wing Loong is equipped with a camera along with a sensor tower. Its wing-shaped body and three-bladed propeller enable it to fly at speeds of up to 280km per hour. It can also fly up to five kilometers at maximum altitude. Without refueling, the Yilong can complete its mission in 20 hour. The Yilong can transmit data over line-of-sight distances of 200km and has a remarkable take-off roll distance of 600m, 800m, and landing roll distances of 600m.
Yilong/Wing Loong LE380 sensor
These drones are being developed by Chinese companies since many years. Their latest version, Wing Loong 1, was the first in a new series. The Wing Loong 1 can carry 200 kg and has a top speed 200 km/h. The Yilong/Wing Loong LE380 sensor is used to monitor the drones' surroundings. Drones can also be equipped with weapons.
The Wing Loong drones were designed for military and business use. China plans to sell drones to different countries. At the Beijing Aviation Exhibition, September 2015 saw the unveiling of Wing Loong II. More than 100 Wing Loong II drones have been sold. The Wing Loong family of drones is currently being used in several countries, including the UAE (Algeria, Egypt), Nigeria, Pakistan and Uzbekistan.
