Do you think they would show a program that is still ongoing? Doesn't sound like PLA policy to me. This is the direction they are going for and emphasizing in, that's all.Is this big shrimp usually associated with news from Shenyang? The only UCAV program that's been revealed is the "Dark Sword".
On one had it's surprising something that advanced is being tested. On the other hand, it's not surprising since they've already revealed the project at Zhuhai some time ago.
If this news is true, then the manned stealth aircraft projects must be very far along in development also.
