    New Pictures of Chinese Global Hawk UCAV has emerged ,locally known as Xiang Long (flying dragon) , Xiang Long has very close resemblance of the American made Global Hawk UCAV , but it does not have the same Range and Payload carrying capacity of Global Hawk .

    Chinese have carried out ground trials and fligth trials of the UCAV ,and will have a range of 7000 km making it ,Second highest ranged UCAV after Global Hawk which has a Range of 22,000 km , third is the Israeli Heron TP which has about 3300 km .

    Village Hawk... sounds about right. All it does is run up and down the runway being chased by a truck with an RC controller trying to keep it from getting out of range.

    China is trying real hard to get whatever US has, and what happened in the past 5 years are really aplausible, who knows, CCP might really be able to reach its goal in another 10 yrs

    The only way to know China has reached success is by seeing mass production of new equipment. If they induct it in large numbers, then you know it reaches some level of capability, although guarantee it is not as good as claimed.
