China unveils its first STEALTH SPY DRONE that can fly 40 hours without refuelling and scout ground targets from 9,800ft


China has unveiled its first stealth spy drone that is invisible to radar and can fly 40 hours without refuelling.


The 'Sky Hawk' warplane is capable of taking a clear picture of a car's number plate while flying at the altitude of 3,000 metres (9,800 feet), according to its developer.


The 'Sky Hawk', or Tianying in Chinese, is the brainchild of Sea Hawke General Aviation Equipment Company Ltd, which was set up in 2012 by state-run China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation to develop and manufacture military drones.



The plane is capable of avoiding radar detection and penetrating key enemy targets in a 'highly threatening battling environment', says Sea Hawke in a post on Chinese social media on New Year's Day.

The post also released the first video of the spy drone.


While the majority of the footage uses computer-generated imaging of the plane, it contains a 10-second real-life clip which captures the drone taking off from an airport in an unspecified location.


The drone is equipped with China's most advanced photo-electric aerial platform, according to the plane's deputy designer Wang Jianping, who spoke to China Central Television Station.


The platform contains seven different cameras, including an infrared camera and a multispectral camera, all of which can turn 360 degrees while spying on enemies without being captured by radar.


With a wingspan of 18 metres (59 feet), the plane can reach a maximum cruising altitude of 7,500 metres (24,600 feet) and carry 370 kilograms (815 pounds) of goods. Its maximum take-off load is 1.5 tonnes.

@cockney in exile 那嫦娥四号呢?中国从哪里窃取了相关技术?

Probably copied from the CIA drone which crashed in Iran in 2011



Bill Blinky, Coffs Harbour NSW, Australia, 2 days ago

Is that claim about car number plates even possible?



ClubfootCatherine, Clocktown, Australia, 2 days ago

sure, if you put your number plate on the roof of your car

@Bill Blinky当然,把你的车牌放在车顶上就行。


cockney in exile, utopia, United Kingdom, 2 days ago

British design .



Dan Sur, Lhasa, China, 2 days ago

Britain's BAE copied the American RQ drone.



Jabba the wocky, Plymouth, United Kingdom, 2 days ago

Presumably using battery tech copied from Apple & Tesla.



illbill, UK, United Kingdom, 2 days ago

Well clearly they've copied or reverse engineered everything else, including this.



The Oyster Baker, City of Earth, United States, 2 days ago

Great! This looks exactly like the American one! Well done.



FlyOverStateGOP, MidWest, United States, 3 days ago

Let's hope the quality of the drone is as good as the quality of their CGI.



CNI, DFW, United States, 3 days ago

Wonder where they stole the flying wing technology ????



RealOne, Tatooine, United States, 2 days ago

They probably stole the tech from the US as the US stole it from Germany, so the story continues.



Dan Sur, Lhasa, China, 2 days ago

A bird.



gt, Corpus Christi, United States, 3 days ago

It should be called the STEALTH SPY CLONE!



Von Balldinger, Chetville, United States, 3 days ago

Wow, they don't even try to hide their thievery of American technology and design.



Ranger99, London, United Kingdom, 3 days ago

Looks like a model of a B2 bomber. Just don't fly it near Gatwick.



stockers101, Swindon, United Kingdom, 3 days ago

Another cheap Chinese knock off.



WeHaveSomeConcerns, Sydney, Australia, 3 days ago

For the unaware, this "Chinese" drone is actually a direct copy of the Lockheed Martin RQ-170 Sentinel, a stealth drone that has been in service with the US Air-force since 2007.

这架“中国”无人机实际上是洛克希德·马丁公司RQ-170 “哨兵”隐形无人机的复制品,RQ-170 “哨兵”自2007年起在美国空军服役


spepper, Great Britain, United Kingdom, 3 days ago

Made in China with USA technology.



Gr8Dane, Phoenix MD, United States, 3 days ago

Made in China? Yeah, that's a guarantee it won't work right after you have unwrapped it and thrown the receipt away.



crisser, Manchester or thereabouts, United Kingdom, 3 days ago

When the RQ-170 Sentinel crashed in Iran in December 2011, it was reported at the time that both Russia and China were bidding for access to it. Looks like China was the highest bidder.



Gzxs Runner, London, United Kingdom, 3 days ago

Russians would at least add some improvements and change the look . The former don't know how to do that do the just copy everything. I am actually shocked they didn't copy the name also.



unothetruth, paradiselost, United Kingdom, 3 days ago

All tech stolen from the West.



wendyM, glasgow, United Kingdom, 3 days ago

Remarkable resemblance to the UK BAE Taranis UAV



rebelrouser, slough, United Kingdom, 3 days ago

Will be able to deliver a lot of takeaways.



DaveOn, London, Germany, 3 days ago

Is it just coincidence that it looks every bit like a carbon copy of US aircraft ?



unothetruth, paradiselost, United Kingdom, 3 days ago

We got there 50 years ago.



Conservative NY, Ballston Spa, United States, 3 days ago

Looks like the Northrop X-47B. Wonder where they got the tech from?
