    Now it's even more difficult ! Can anyone help me out ....

    For me it seems as if the original concept of this configuration (aka mini-Global Hawk) was the single engined Sky Wing (2011), ....

    CAC UAV - Sky Wing I - 29.6.2011.jpg

    ... which was then modified and reappeared (2014) as the twin engined SkyWing II or Wind Shadow ....

    CAC UAV Sky Wing II Tian Yi - 23.12.14 - 4 mod.jpg

    ... and now (2016) again different to the first one the single engined Cloud Shadow !???

    CAC Cloud Shadow UAV - Zhuhai - 27.10.16 - 6.jpg


    Or am I wrong ???

    O.k. ... soo the first aircraft was something like a prototype/demonstrator and then it evolved into two separate UAV/UCAVs WindShadow and CloudShadow. Seems as if WindShadow is then more a recce-system and CloudShadow is an UCAV??

    O.k. ... so they modified the design ?

    Indeed a more than interesting topic...

    China presents a Combat Drone with 16 Missiles
    The Chinese CH-5 will compete with the American MQ-9 Reaper of General Atomics. Its current maximum range is 6,500 km, and a future upgrade will enable it to fly as far as 10,000 km

    According to a report on People, China has granted an export license for the CH-5 reconnaissance/combat drone, which is believed to be one of the most powerful unmanned combat aircraft in the world.

    "Several foreign nations have expressed intentions to purchase the CH-5, and we are in talks with them," said Shi Wen, chief designer of the Caihong, or Rainbow, series at the China Academy of Aerospace Aerodynamics in Beijing.

    The CH-5 Drone is made of composite materials and has a wingspan of 21 meters. The drone can stay in the air for about 60 hours and operate at an altitude of up to 10 km. Its current maximum range is 6,500 km, and a future upgrade will enable it to fly as far as 10,000 km.

    The CH-5 can carry 1,000 kg of equipment and weapons. It will carry 16 air-to-surface missiles when displayed at the air show, but its largest capacity is 24 missiles in a single flight, engineers at the academy said.

    Compared with the prototype for the test flight, the drone's mass-production model has a more streamlined nose, and an electro-optical instrument mounted under the nose.

    Shi said designers plan to develop a CH-5 that will be capable of staying in the air for up to 120 hours, with a 20,000-km range.

    The China Academy of Aerospace Aerodynamics, part of China Aerospace Science and Technology Corp, is China's largest military drone exporter by a number of products sold overseas. Its CH-series drones have been sold to military users in more than ten countries, he said.

    Lan Wenbo, the project manager of the CH-5, said his academy is willing to transfer technologies to users, an attraction that Western suppliers do not offer.
