Chinese UAV & UCAV development

Take note of the direction of the trails of white smoke. Flares don't travel in one direction,in a straght line and in front of a launching aircraft. Possibly some kind of test rounds?

Re: New Chinese UAV

this is a picture of a couple of UAVs attacking tanks. Although I can't actually tell which UAVs they are. If we look at the wingspan of the UAVs compared to the frontal width of tank, then we can judge the wing to be 3 to 4 times, so the wings should be around 12-15 m. Which, if you take a look at the length of every UAV on sinodefence, would be a completely new UAV.
Those are Cessna C162 Skycatcher's built by Shenyang Aircraft Corporation

They are UAVs according to the news report. Besides, they just signed the skycatcher agreement, no way the planes could've been built by SAC and join the service so fast.

don't concern too much with what they are dropping, they may choose to destroy or not destroy the tank. The important part is the ability to find and then bomb the tanks.

Those don't look like they have very much in the way of RCS features, though.

I hope that those tanks (or whatever armored vehicles they are) are remotely controlled.

I think RCS reduction would tend to make the UAV more difficult to fly, requiring more complex controls. Traditional small planes like Cessnas are very stable. You can take your hands off the controls and they just level out on their own. And this is without any electronic aid whatsoever.

I could imagine a good niche for dirt-cheap, simple UAVs that are easy to handle and expendable. They force the enemy to turn on their radars and waste missiles. If they get shot down, you call in more sophisticated air support.

Another possibility is that the CCTV clip used stock footage which is not actually the new UAV, but more of a demo of what role the UAV would perform. We have seen this substitution in the past, and there are plenty of reasons why it would be done. An amateur would not care or tell the difference anyway.

近日,记者从西北工业大学获悉,2007年该校新增项目合同总经费8.5亿元,比2006年同期增长89%;50项科研成果获国家、省部级奖励,其中国家技术发明奖二等奖1项;国防科技进步奖29项,其中一等奖5项;陕西省科技奖15项,其中一等奖5项;军队科技进步奖一等奖1项。专利申请320件,其中发明专利248件、专利授权142件,比去年增长30%。

无人机研究所重点工程型号研制取得重大突破,获国家表彰,其中我国首架新型气动布局无人机验证机成功试飞并作为国家重点型号正式立项,获得1亿元研制经费;基础研究也取得重大进展,学校首个牵头重大科研项目“自愈合陶瓷基复合材料基础问题研究”立项;国家自然科学基金2007年自然基金获资助67项,其中重点项目3项、重大国际合作项目1项。
talking about Xian ASN and they are well known for their UAV developments

They've done some reconnaissance UAV and target drones.

Looks like this is a new project and got 100 million Yuan - 12.5 to 15 million USD. Talks about a new UAV with different aerodynamics than previous ones finally taking the first flight. It's part of a national major defense project. Sounds like an advanced URAV in development.

I am new to the CD Forum. I am just lurking for the moment. I had tried to start a new thread but I can't find the inout box to do so. Any instructions as yo where to click on?

Re: New Chinese UAV

You see above all the thread the yellow box, the one saying "Forum Tools" click the arrow and then select "Post a new thread" then presto....

With all these developments of large UCAV, URAV I cannot find any hint about China's micro URAV since its internet released micro URAV helicopter...probably high level security equipment for agents or other purposes...
