During an CCTV interview, Fu Qianshao told the media that GJ-11 is the aircraft with the least RCS human have ever made.

Besides the typical RCS-reducation tech like shape/coating/vectorized nozzle/engine cooling etc, GJ-11 apply the world first ever vectorized-nozzle array to control its flight.

Applying such advanced flight control system ensure GJ-11 can fly with minimum control surface installed, further reduce its RCS to minimum level.

Looks like GJ-11 is not just your usual VLO UAV, it is a testbed for China's next generation fighter as well as bombers etc.

In case you dont know, about Fu Qianshao:

He got a BA in Aerodynamics from Xibei(Northwest) Industry university, one of the Top 2 school in aerodynamics in China (the leading designer of J-10/J-20/J-15/Y-20/H-20/JH-7 are all graduted from this university).
He then joined PLA and worked as techian/engineer in PLAAF, after he retired from PLA, he wrote several books/articles and become a defence specilist in CCTV, gave many interviews.

He also got medal for services in science/technology advancement from PLAAF, etc.

GJ-11 is the first and currently only aircraft in the world to be using thrust vectoring along wing. No moving control surfaces. Something BAe said they are researching called MAGMA project. Actually they just make so much noise about things people think only they are at leading in this research fields. Same with variable geometry with is main next generation fighter technology. Totally variable geometry aircraft not just wing sweep.

GJ-11 shown in parade is just mockup like all parade piece. The real one no one is sure whether main engine exhaust has completed that design shown in mockup.

How do you come to this idea? I know there were some rumours on this based on certain gaps found on the mock up seen on the parade, but since we haven't seen a single image of the real GJ-11 by now I would be careful with such claims or taking these as facts.

I just discovered that a drone was shooting the launch scene during the launch, [Yun Bei]

Hurry up and hand over the drone perspective picture! [hee hee]

Known because the mockup is always used in those parades. Almost everything is using mockup. Everything in parades are in service.

Sending supplies to nearby islands off Hainan. Each UAV carried more than 40kg to destination 20km away, taking about 20 minutes flight.
