IMDEX Asia: China promotes armed UAVs

The Ziyan Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Company, based in Zhuhai, China, promoted three new rotorcraft UAVs at IMDEX Asia 2017 in Singapore. Only one of the types, the Blowfish, was displayed, but Ziyan’s brochure included a military rotorcraft UAV, dubbed the Infiltrator Surveillance and Strike Aircraft, capable of carrying air-to-ground missiles.

The Infiltrator configuration is the same as a standard helicopter and can be fitted with four air-to-ground missiles, said a company representative, although the photograph in the brochure showed only two. 

The official showed Shephard a video on his mobile phone of the Infiltrator firing missiles during a flight test.
