would there be the possibility of gun armed UAVs to mimic and supplement attack helicopters?

A turboprop powered drone with a 12.7 mm gun and a few rockets seems like it would be devastating for CAS.

There are quad drones and small helicopter drones with rocket launcher, grenade launcher, and light machinegun, etc.

These will be very useful against Taiwanese defenses. It's hard to imagine SAM sites and runways being repaired while being shot at by armed drones. Machine guns provide persistence that rockets may not.
