    The British “Jane’s Defense Weekly” website reported on June 7 that recently the “Dark Sword” drone photos of the China Aviation Industry Corporation have been circulating on the Chinese network. The journal believes that this Drones may have multiple uses.

    The "Dark Sword" drone is considered to be a high-mobility, supersonic unmanned air superiority fighter or a deep strike platform developed by Shenyang Aircraft Design Bureau (601).

    On the other hand, the aircraft has a strong verifier color, so the outside world also believes that since its publication in 2006, its mission may have evolved and may include the task of verifying the design and flight control laws for advanced manned fighter aircraft. It is also a high-surviving, high-speed target platform that can be used for training.

    Any thoughts if the drone will be used for Aerial target practice...

    Plus, an article about a CCTV report that was posted to cjdby, showing what is described as drones designed to simulate the F-22.

    One more thread from pb19980515 about this (much of it was discussed previously here and here, but some things should be new).
