Does the load capacity that you mention means cargo capacity? Because if you watch the video, the chief designer very clearly said that the MTOW is the one that is 650kg and the cargo capacity itself is 300kg.
Yes you are correct sorry I don't pay attention what he said so it it garden variety UAH not much better than AR 500C

An all-female operating team for BZK-008. Interestingly, up until now, this UAV has been photographed with mostly female operators.

From all the news in Myanmar, I spotted this image from an ethnic militia army (Wa State Army).

What kind of drone is this? It doesn't look terribly sophisticated (don't see any big sensors), but it doesn't look totally improvised either (looks like a proper launcher on the EQ2050).

, which was previously covered here and here. The experts observed the test run of a certain unnamed engine. I wonder if it's the ZF1000A intended for an unmanned combat drone similar to the Loyal Wingman or simply the ZF850 turbojet for the Cloud Shadow...

Of interest is the image below. In the background it shows a project development timeline. For the year 2021 and 2022, it appears to show the ZF1000A turbofan introduction/integration into what appears to be Loyal Wingman-like UCAV.
