Weirdly Shaped Chinese Attack Drone Revealed at LIMA-2019

A weirdly shaped Chinese attack drone Blowfish A2 was unveiled at Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace Exhibition-2019 (LIMA) held in Malaysia.

According to the Guangdong-based Zhuhai Ziyan UAV company, the 1.87-meter long, 0.62-meter tall helicopter drone can fly at speeds of 130 kmph, has maximum take-off weight of 38 kilograms and is capable of carrying a 12-kilogram payload, Global Times reported Tuesday.

In its strange belly-less fuselage, the Blowfish A2 can carry radar, jamming devices, guns or bombs under its spine. 

The People's Liberation Army could equip basic combat units with the drone, allowing them to conduct reconnaissance and attack in time, the Ziyan statement said.

A video the company sent to the Global Times on Tuesday shows the drone dropping four bombs, which detonated some meters above the target, as the guided explosions accurately scorched a wide area.

"Many countries have approached the company about potential purchases of the drone," a Ziyan representative said.
