The coaxial rotor is one of the most technologically advanced in the world. No more than 10 countries can be produced. The export of coaxial rotor UAVs could affect the national interests of China in the future, the technology will spread and fall into the hands of many hostile countries.

China should now focus on R&D towards tandem-rotor and tiltrotor designs. Even if they are not produced in the near future, China shouldn't lag significantly behind in the potential for any platform capability.

China wanted to buy coaxial helicopter technology from Russia in the 1990s, but the Russians rejected China

Several years ago, many Russians disagreed with the government's decision to sell Ka-32 to China. They fear that China may develop advanced coaxial helicopter technology.

The Russians are happy to sell Ka helicopters to India, as India is incapable of researching coaxial rotor technology. China is on a different level.

Could you do me a favor? Take your off-topic political nonsense elsewhere.

Can we do something about @FangYuan and his repeated chest-thumping and his attempts to inject nationalist politics into our flagship threads? I've been reporting offending posts from him and a few others. The posts are usually removed, however little to nothing was done to the offenders, which only serves to encourage and embolden their off-topic behavior. I guess I'm just a little fed up.

Guide: On November 27th, Anhui Hangrui Aviation Power Equipment Co., Ltd.'s DB416 heavy oil aero engine was equipped with China Aviation Industry Helicopter AR. The 500B carrier-based helicopter successfully flew for the first time in Panyang Base, realizing the product development of China's first heavy oil carrier-based unmanned aircraft, filling the gap in the domestic unmanned helicopter carrier-based field. Fang Guohua, vice chairman of the Wuhu CPPCC, attended the first flight ceremony.
