Why no DF-41?
Not sure if posted elsewhere in regards to "FX500 Sky Saker." Interesting part is that its related to long range artillery + MLRS ( A200/A300 type. )
"This high speed/high altitude reconnaissance UAV was co-developed by NUAA and NORINCO for rapid artillery directing, especially for the long range MRLS (~300km). The UAV features short straight wings and a V tail. It is powered by a small turbobjet with the S-shaped air intake located above the rear fuselage and between the V tail. This helps to improve its stealth capability and survivability on the battlefield. Based upon customer's request, FX500 can have the options of SAR and SATCOM installed in its head and nose, datalink antenna on its back, as well as EO turret underneath its head. FX500 is normally transported and launched from the launch vehicle using RATO, making it more flexible and versatile on the battlefield. Some specifications: TO weight 500kg, speed 800km/hr, ceiling 9,000m, load 50kg, loitering time: 2 hr. FX500 was first unveiled at the 2018 Zhuhai Airshow. Recently FX500 was publicly displayed at the military parade celebrating China's 70th anniversary on October 1, 2019, indicating it has entered the service with PLA Army (exact designation unknown)."
