China’s unmanned aerial vehicle CH-5, or “Caihong (Rainbow) 5,” completed a live-fire exercise earlier this month. The CH-5 is the latest drone developed by the Chinese Academy of Aerospace and Aerodynamics.

According to deputy chief designer Lan Wenbo, the CH-5 has already completed performance flight testing and entered into small-scale production. The drone, which measures about 11 meters in length and stands over four meters high, has a wingspan of 21 meters. It is China’s largest drone for reconnaissance, surveillance, patrols, target positioning, and strike missions.
