China has developed an unmanned carrier of reconnaissance drones

13

China continues to rapidly develop unmanned Aviation, testing more and more drones. Another novelty was demonstrated by the Chinese company Zhongtian Feilong.


According to Jane's, citing the local press, the first flight tests of a promising unmanned aerial vehicle, a carrier of reconnaissance drones, took place in China. The flight took place at the end of March this year at one of the airfields and was considered completely successful.

There is very little information about the new development in the public domain. At the moment, it is known that the unmanned drone carrier was created according to a two-boom aircraft scheme. The drone is equipped with five electric motors, allowing it to take off and land by helicopter and fly like a regular plane.

According to the published photo, two engines with rotors are located on each of the drone's beams, and another one with a pusher rotor is located in the tail section. On the bottom surface of the drone is a container that houses reconnaissance drones. Instead, the drone can carry kamikaze drones. In addition, various equipment can be installed in the container, for example, electronic warfare.

Presumably, reconnaissance drones released by the carrier can no longer return to the container, but return on their own or simply fall, having exhausted their resource. There are no details.

The technical characteristics of the new Chinese drone were also not disclosed.

    Most likely they stole the development, but still great.

      There is nothing special about tyrit ... the theme / technique is being developed by everyone who does such work himself.

        But the Chinese are ahead of the rest of the UAV
        Their first software for swarm UAVs reached the level that they put on shows for civil holidays. The rest began to repeat after them. They were the first marine UAV boats thought to combine into a swarm. And now they were the first to create an unmanned swarm carrier. Yes, the idea is simple, they will quickly be repeated. But they are the first.

    Another thing is interesting - which Chinese device will become an unmanned carrier of an unmanned carrier of reconnaissance drones laughing

      From the last trip to Shanghai, I can say -
      specification, coupled with a technological map,
      that's all our partners in China need.
      Including production of lines or at least
      machines to fulfill the contract.
      They are smart guys, believe me.
      They will produce anything.
      And they will never work for a reserve.
      And exclusively - to order.

    Pampering is not a carrier. On a not very large aircraft, several tiny drones with very limited capabilities were accommodated. Here is an airship with several dozen Hunters on board - this is the carrier. Not this toy.
