China Aerospace Science and Industry Corp has begun to develop military drones that can evade radar and anti-aircraft weapons.
CASIC is striving to develop technologies for long-endurance stealth drones. "Within the 13th Five-Year Plan (2016-20) period, CASIC will complete the design of high-speed combat/reconnaissance drones and use these products to tap domestic and international markets," China Daily Asia reported today.
CASIC has put the WJ-500, WJ-600 and WJ-600A/D military drones on the market. Unlike other Chinese drones, which resemble fixed-wing planes with landing gear, CASIC drones all resemble a cruise missile. The company is the only producer of cruise missiles in China.
