US worried about the capabilities of Chinese UAVs

12
The Iraqi Ministry of Defense announced almost one hundred percent effectiveness of the Chinese CH-4B unmanned aerial vehicles in the fight against the Islamic State (IS, organization banned in Russia), reports the War is Boring publication.


The reason for the publication was the video where the Iraqi military claims that since January 2015, the moment of adopting the CH-4B, drones executed at least 260 air strikes against the targets of the IG, almost all of which were successful.

US worried about the capabilities of Chinese UAVs


Based on this, the publication notes that "the Chinese drones in the armament of Iraq are really good."

Following War is Boring, the publication was duplicated by the American magazine The National Interest, which noted that such successes of the PRC "should disturb the United States."

The CH-4 is a clone of the American MQ-1 Predator drone, which in March 2018 will be decommissioned by the US Air Force. The CH-4B version, which differs from the CH-4A with increased payload, carries two anti-tank guided missiles HJ-10, the Chinese counterparts of the American AGM-114 Hellfire, and the high-precision FT-9 bombs, equipped with GPS.

China introduced a drone in 2012 year, except Iraq, it is exported to Algeria, Egypt and Saudi Arabia, which received a license for the serial release of all versions of CH-4, reports "Lenta.ru"

    Considering that American UAVs are constantly beating in the wrong direction, the point is most likely in the training of operators ... Of course, the performance characteristics are the same, the Chinese, using the fact that the whole world makes their components, use this ...

    The Chinese have overtaken us - we have been testing our attack drones for at least three years, but the results, at least for the army, are not visible! We have all sorts, except for purely our own strike drones! In the sky, then they fly beautifully and quickly, I watched, but this is all they are tested and experienced. ...

    I quite believe in Chinese copies of Predators. The only question is - when will we see our analogs? Sometimes these devices are simply irreplaceable, especially in long-term reconnaissance barrage. Although there may simply be no satellite control capabilities? because I don't see any technological obstacles to the creation of such UAVs as such ..

      Completed stage. The Americans are taking off arms, the Chinese are sculpting for sale. Does it make sense to make a copy? To buy a lot of junk for urgent needs in the same China or Israel and work for the future.

      White for soothing and all tip-top.
      The Yankees will simply increase the number of psychoanalysts! Pharmacologists will earn another lard!
      True, it is not clear, if the country will consist of some lawyers, financiers and psychoanalysts, who will work?
      They sho, the Chinese. Indians. Are there few Mexicans and other visitors?
