China’s unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) attack and reconnaissance drone designated CH-5, completed a live-fire exercise earlier this month.

The CH-5 also called “Caihong (Rainbow) 5,” is the latest drone developed by the Chinese Academy of Aerospace and Aerodynamics.

According to deputy chief designer Lan Wenbo, quoted in a Peoples’ Daily report, the CH-5 has already completed performance flight testing and entered into small-scale production.

The drone, which measures about 11 meters in length and stands over four meters high, has a wingspan of 21 meters. It is China’s largest drone for reconnaissance, surveillance, patrols, target positioning, and strike missions.

A model of the CH-5 was displayed at this year’s Paris Air Show and its capabilities are considered comparable to the US-made Predator drone.
