But this is much cheaper and easy to mass produce.
10 unit of this UCAV, will easily destroy 1 expensive Armored division from 10 km away

1 armored division cost 1 billion USD. tens of thousands of soldiers.
10 helicopter drone, cost just 1%, a few soldiers. Safer, no risk of lives, destroy enemies BVR.
I have read Armenian comments on reddit, there are a lot of Armenians who want to cooperate with China for UAV production.

The problem is that Armenians don't have money and they don't want to pay as much money for TOT as Saudi Arabia but they want 100% TOT from China to produce Wing Loong locally.
not possible. Armenia industry is very weak, they may built the body with some help, but how about electronics, such as sensor packages and communication systems.
Even China provide TOT, Armenia doesn't have the industry to build drone all by themselves. Too small population, industry too weak.

China won't provide TOT to Armenia, not China ally at all.

The name of the international customer was not revealed nor the number of drones contracted. The customer could be from the Middle East or even Pakistan given the popularity of Chinese drones there.

The South Asian nation has recently inducted Chinese-made VT-4 battle tanks and the CR500 has been designed to work with this type of tank as a target spotter and to guide its fire.
Well that is a give away, only PA is inducting VT-4s in Southa Asia.

These drones look really practical ,not only will they be harder to engage by InAF compared to attack choppers they can be fielded in larger numbers and cheaper.

For COIN PA can use attack helicopters but for conventional warfare against armored targets this is perfect and risk reduced.

What about these, which are shown in this picture.
This is the picture of Rahwali Cantonment Airbase.
I always wanted to know, that what are these little white ones, are these unmanned helicopters?

Fit them with PL-10E and they might be good cover against enemy Apaches, when our forces are moving through an area. Considering their small size they could move in the back of a Truck, and spring up to take out pop-up targets. Their small size would make them a hard target to detect and enagage. It’s only their short range (based on their small size) and possible altitude limitations (based on their rotor blades) that would need to be looked at if they are to be deployed in the mountains.

it might be a good asset to attach to a company sized special forces unit to provide organic armed overwatch along a mountainous area or area filled with unknown potential hostile like CPEC motorways, if it can fly that high and that far.
There is a light-weight AAM called TY-90 which is being used by PLA for killing enemy's helicopters. However I am not quite sure if it can be used on UAVs as it seems the missile has to be used incorporate with pilot's HMD.

Just Hope that the weapon loads are real, not just for the display .. from the photos, seems like these cuties can give Mi 24 Hind run for money in terms of weapon loads.. :)

We have worked on similar project with China. Is something coming out? Who knows.
The armed battlefield rotary drones add a new dimension within armed forces even if we talk about 'standard' kinetic warfare only.
May be we need dedicated formations in military structure to fully utalize such systems or such systems can be distributed within army upto company level to collectively distribute its benefits. @Signalian @PanzerKiel
The news of undisclosed customer is already in the air...
Let's hope for best.

PAC can license-produced these for the armed forces.

Army & Navy would need them in big numbers and can integrate weapons from the West on to it. This will increase its potential for exports.

Such systems are ideal for LOC. To hit Indian posts and not crossing LOC. Although this new order of this drone I really doubt it's from Pakistan. I personally think it's from some arab country.
