China has begun flight tests of the latest promising attack drone WJ-700

In China, flight tests of the latest promising strike drone have begun. According to local media reports, the first flight of the WJ-700, which took place on January 11, 2021, was successful.


The device was developed by the Chinese company Haiying Aviation General Equipment in cooperation with the third research institute CASIC, for the first time the WJ-700 was shown in 2018. The drone with a maximum take-off weight of 3,5 tons is equipped with a turbojet engine. The time spent in the air is announced at 20 o'clock, the drone is designed for reconnaissance and strike operations. The shock version has two suspension points under the wings, where various ammunition can be placed.

the drone is capable of delivering high-precision air-to-ground strikes, such as ground attacks outside the defensive network, anti-ship, anti-radar strikes, and is also capable of reconnaissance over a wide area

- writes the Guancha edition.

The drone is equipped with an automatic take-off and landing system. The developers have not yet disclosed other details about the drone.

It is noted that the WJ-700 will be offered not only for arming the PLA, but also for export. It is planned that this drone will be relevant in the domestic and international markets for the next 5-10 years.

    as ground attacks outside the zone of the defensive network, anti-ship, anti-radiation blows,

    Ummm ... what

      Difficulties in translation. This makes it easier for perception:
      the specimen was armed with models of the CM-102 anti-radar missile, the C701 air-to-ground missile and the C705KD anti-ship missile.

      Probably, all the same, anti-radar.

        then anti-radar. Because locations are different, but the rocket is still aimed at the source Radioradiation wink

    We need to create similar projects. For this, everything is there. Considering the difference in the quality of turbojet engines, we will have higher performance.
    We need 2 massive projects, multifunctional UAVs (scouts, drums, AWACS, electronic warfare, repeaters, etc.)
    1. MALE with a maximum takeoff weight of 5-6 tons.
    2. HALE with a maximum takeoff weight of 12-14 tons.

      Fiery cat - we have enough projects and developments, probably more than anyone in the world of frozen programs and prototypes of ubpl we have! It is necessary to give the "green light" to the maximum of what is now being brought to mind, so that at least something to saturate the army! And then there were a dozen prototypes, and zero was adopted! Now they are trying to bring at least a couple of types to mind, but they are already lagging behind the same beytractors, for example, Orion, in many characteristics. Not to be unfounded, one example - the Turks will have a ceiling of 10000 meters, against the ceiling of 7500 at Orion! Ours will be much easier to shoot down. ..

        Orion and the hunter are misdirected. We have no technology for them. What I'm talking about, everything is there. One is put on MALE, two AI-222-25 on HALE.
        If we talk about the Turks, they will put the Ukrainian version of the AI-222-25 on their jet UAVs. What I am talking about in 3-4 years you will see them.

        -turk will have a ceiling of 10000 meters

        Is it fashionable for you to overestimate the parameters of your competitors? TV-2 has a ceiling of 8000 and this does not take into account the payload (which Bayraktar carries 2 times less). No matter how hard you tried to be unfounded, but you did not succeed as always negative

      China is 5-7 years ahead of us ...... The Russian Federation is only adopting ORION. The next stage is control via satellite, to ensure the range ... the next stage of a larger UAV with a TVD ..... the rest is a matter of a large airframe and a turbojet engine to it.

    The performance of two world machines is surprising:
    1st. American - "FRS", prints dollars around the clock.
    2nd. Chinese - "3 G printer", prints whatever you put.

      3rd Russian - ruined the country, took the money offshore, almost ruined the aircraft industry, and in 2008, after meeting with Georgian UAVs of Jewish production, they realized what to do with UAVs. And to the house it is necessary to add the achievements of the Russian Federation in electronics and thermal imagers.

        malo ... These "calls" have already been ... I am glad that finally

        We took it a long time ago, but we do not attach any scale to it.
        We need to bring strategic weapons to the proper level,
        on which all efforts are directed.
        UAVs are tactical weapons. Yes, it became a "discovery" in conflicts of "local importance" (Syria, Libya, Karabakh).
        Russia has other threats, they are more global, and there are still "holes".
        We will close these holes and make up for the UAV. There are developments, and serial products, to the extent of their today's needs. And there are means of protection against UAVs. hi

      for what? Why force? Everything goes on as usual. And forcing means underfunding of other programs. And we have a shaft of holes in armaments and equipment, without the closure of which the country's defense becomes in front of a real threat (and not imaginary as you have from an UAV)

    I will speak out. I think it would be nice to buy something like that from China, as an introduction. And in general, it's time to study. If we are lagging behind in some direction, then it is better to buy than to lag behind for generations

        To make a copy from a copy?

        To do this, you need your own electronics, it is not there, so it's easy to at least buy, especially since copies are not in vain for export being pushed

      And in general, it's time to study

      what is learning? It is not difficult to design the aircraft itself. The main difficulties here may arise in the equipment (engines, on-board optical and radar equipment, PC, PPS, etc.). There may be delays in development from subcontractors. And China in these things is not ahead of the rest.
      Our problem may lie elsewhere - in the interdepartmental struggle for budgets. For example, Sukhoi could draw out all the resources for the development of his heavyweight. And the developers of medium and light UAVs were left with only crumbs. Which will not be enough to quickly bring the development to state acceptance

    3.5 tons is the same mosquito compared to a hunter 70, that lead more than 20 tons and fly the same 1000 km / h
