    I think one thing that was mentioned before but often overlooked is the fact that the CH-7 was an actual engineering prototype, not a mere model.

    The other interesting thing was the lack of any reference to the “CH 6” to complete the line up... I wonder what it’ll look like sitting somewhere between the CH 5 and CH 7...

    All fancy names are for export, PLA only keep numbers and letters.

    Does my pose look cool?

    Doesn't look like the launch pose at all.

    Yes ... my still biggest question is: is this indeed a member of the well known Sky Wing III, which is now known as the Wind Shadow with two engines or as the Cloud Shadow with one?

    I thought the Cloud Shadow was exclusively an export-oriented version of the Sky Wing III / Wind Shadow.
