Its a sensitive technology and require too much expertise (read R&D). Although modular technology is in place for sensors (and lots of off-the-shelve components) but the basic issues related to avionics and air frame limitations take quite good time. Once a basic combat/flight profile is finished, there comes the testing part....and that so far hasn't become our friend in drones technology.Are drones weaponized yet?
Why is this taking so long!
So Falco is the size of Alto.
So Nigeria is buying it? Why we also sell them other UAVs which we make for cheap. I think we should do that in Asia and Africa........When suspected Chinese-made combat UAV crashed rainbow 3
According to foreign media reports, local time on January 27, a suspected Chinese-made CH-3 (Rainbow -3) UAV in Borno State in northeastern Nigeria region crashed, the aircraft was probably being executed counter-insurgency task.
Rainbow -3 (CH-3) UAV by the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation independent research and development, is an unmanned aircraft by radio remote control device or program control device manipulation itself.
Rainbow -3 main medium-range UAV UAV systems and equipment constitute include: medium-range unmanned aerial vehicles, ground stations and car remote telemetry ground support equipment. Rainbow -3 UAV uses a piston engine, the farthest range can reach 2400 km, cruising time up to 12 hours, during which no oil. The aircraft is equipped with camera, camera and other devices can be used as reconnaissance aircraft.
Rainbow -3 wheeled autonomous UAV landing, takeoff weight of 640 kg, 60 kg load capacity, flight time from 12 hours to 15 hours at an altitude of 5000 meters, the farthest range 2400 km. This series of performance indicators show that the rainbow to the international level of similar drone UAV.

Embraers E-175 have Windows 95 as their operating system, whats your point?WIndowsXP, can't controller your CASC CH-3 and CH-4 combat UAVs without it.
Hmmmm, still running Windows XP huh, this might explain the recent crash. Blue-screen-of-death much?
Photographs emerged on social media websites on 27 January showing a CASC CH-3 (or improved CH-3A) unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that had purportedly crashed in the northeastern Nigerian state of Borno.
Although operated by Pakistan, the CH-3 was not previously reported to be in service with Nigeria or neighboring countries.
While the photographs show the UAV being inspected by African men, the claim that the CH-3 came down in Nigeria remains unconfirmed.
Two guided munitions can be seen on the upside-down aircraft; one appears to be an AR-1 laser-guided missile, while the other may be an FT-5: a small Chinese guided bomb that was designed for use with UAVs.
ch-4 our next ucav
conclusion : urgent need to upgrade of OS xp to 7
plz give ur expert opnion
bro OS is different thingEmbraers E-175 have Windows 95 as their operating system, whats your point?
These things are not connected to internet. They only do what they're design to do, and so they work really well in that role.
why not win7 64bittry Linux
