China set to export advance combat drones to Pakistan, others
BEIJING: China has granted export license for an unmanned combat drone which can carry several missiles and stay in the air for 60 hours at a stretch. The idea is to expand the country’s exports of military drones, which already covers 10 different countries.
The license came in the midst of interest evinced by overseas buyers for the Caihong drone, CH-5, as it is called, which has been designed by the state-run China Academy of Aerospace Aerodynamics in Beijing. The 1,000kg drone can carry between 16 and 24 air-to-surface missiles in a single flight.
“Several foreign nations have expressed intentions to purchase the CH-5, and we are in talks with them,” said Shi Wen, chief designer of the Caihong, or Rainbow, at CAAA. Shi said the CH-5 is better than MQ-9 Reaper, a hunter-killer drone of the US, because it “can perform whatever operations the MQ-9 Reaper can, and is even better than the US vehicle when it comes to flight duration and operational efficiency,” Shi said.
Do not be worried, super power India is able to buy millions of drones from Taobao, which is an online super market in China.
