    On June 11, 017, the Ministry of Defense issued a training photo of a rare group of Chinese Air Force UAV units displaying the training and life of the first UAW force of the Chinese Air Force.

    The use of the UAVs by the Chinese military is more and more widespread. Not only has the long-range reconnaissance drone equipped by the former general-purpose reconnaissance department, but also the medium-sized UAVs equipped by the Army's remote artillery units have become standard reconnaissance equipment and the Air Force has also formed Special UAV flight mission. UAV combat on land has become an emerging field, Chazhu UAV began a large number of troops into service.

    The PLAAF started its work of selecting pilot drone pilots in 2010. UAV pilots are active duty pilots of the Air Force, and control devices are similar to manned fighter planes. In February this year, there were even two third-generation fighter pilots flying drones. One of them also had outstanding achievements in free-air combat , Won the highest honor Air Force pilots - "Golden Helmet." Although these old pilots have reached the age of grounded flight, their accession means no breakthrough in the actual combat level of unmanned combat forces.

    (Zhejiang online reporter Ding Shan trainee reporter Xia Yifan) today at 4:30, Long Eagle series of UAV first aircraft in Taizhou Bay circular economy industrial agglomeration Beihang Eagle New Plant Assembly off the assembly line

    TYW-1 Long Eagle UAV is a large multi-purpose long-range aircraft UAV system, modular, redundant design technology, with high security and high autonomy and other characteristics of the same flight platform Equipped with various types of mission equipment, the formation of a variety of task configurations, to adapt to different mission scenarios, can be widely used in long-time reconnaissance operations in land and marine environments, and has some plug-in capabilities.

    Standard ground system is equipped with ground command and control stations, line-of-sight link ground stations, satellite communication links can also be equipped with ground station according to user needs. Performance parameters: Captain: 9.85m; Wingspan: 18m; Height: 2.5m; Maximum take-off weight: 1500kg; Maximum load weight: 370kg; Maximum life time: 40h, Maximum flying height: 7500m; Maximum flying speed: 200km / h

    The UAV's fuselage is small, but all-encompassing, equipped with a flight control computer, is the drone's "brain." The unmanned aerial vehicle is equipped with a photoelectric detection platform, which is the "big eye" of the drone. Even at a height of 5,000 meters, the UAV can photograph license plates up to 50 kilometers away.

    Cloud Shadow UAV flight radius of 13000 meters, the use of advanced electronic detection and image detection equipment, mounted fire control radar cover 400 km. In an hour you can collect more than 10,000 square kilometers within the scope of the image, if necessary, within 60 km long-range precision strike, destroy the target, technically leading in the world.

    From the airshow supporting weapons point of view, the biggest highlight of the cloud shadow is that it can launch anti-ship missiles, its super payload ensure the capability to launch a lightning attack on a large aircraft carrier battle group within 1000-2000 km from shore-based, is a great blessing for the countries as Iran and Pakistan.
