    Apparently this showed up at the same demo as the J-31 model... There is a high probability that this is a real project.

    There were one or two other UAVs at that same demo...

    But I agree, that particular design looks the most likely to be a real project. It heavily resembles the X-45C and this image from a study considering a large strike ucav of 10mx14m

    Considering the recent exploits of X-47B and Neuron, with western military aviation press trumpeting their progress it's going to dampen the parade a little of SAC show off this UCAV of theirs (huitong calls it skybow) within a month or two. Beyond then, the hype around UCAVs will have died down a little.


    CARRIER HAS ARRIVED! ^^

    Just take it as light-hearted cg.
    Once you have the J-20 directing a squad of these things it could potentially be a game changer.

    I doubt it would be a J-20. Unless you develop an autonomous AI, first you would have to secure the electromagnetic spectrum being used to operate the UAVs. Then you would need to operate them from something that has long loitering abilities, preferably outside the range of reasonable threats.

    $17,000 Linux-powered rifle brings “auto-aim” to the real world | Ars Technica

    a perfect weapon system for UAV, IMO, just need to point multiple target on your epad. and the UAV will aim and shoot them automatically.
