Un­manned com­bat drone to be ex­ported

China Daily (USA) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

China has granted an ex­port li­cense for the CH-5 re­con­nais­sance/com­bat drone, which is be­lieved to be one of the most pow­er­ful un­manned com­bat air­craft in the world.

“Sev­eral for­eign na­tions have ex­pressed in­ten­tions to pur­chase the CH-5, and we are in talks with them,” said Shi Wen, chief de­signer of the Cai­hong, or Rain­bow, se­ries at the China Academy of Aerospace Aero­dy­nam­ics in Bei­jing.

The CH-5 made its first flight in Au­gust last year, be­com­ing the might­i­est mil­i­tary drone in China in terms of op­er­a­tional en­durance and pay­load ca­pac­ity. (Photo 3)
