The Wing Loong, the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) made by the China Aviation Industry Corporation, bears a striking resemblance to the United States' larger MQ-9 Reaper, but is similar in size to its MQ-1 Predator.
The Wing Loong weighs 1.1 tonnes, is nine metres long and has a 14-metre wingspan, according to the Guangzhou-based Southern Metropolis Daily.
It can fly at a maximum altitude of 5,300 metres and has a range of 4,000 kilometres, and can be used for both military and non-military operations.
Macau-based military affairs commentator Antony Wong Dong said the drone, with a price tag of less than US$1 million each, could find easy success on the international arms market.
"As the Wing Loong can carry two air-to-surface missiles, aside from featuring other UAV characteristics, such as being smaller and quieter than traditional fighters, dozens of countries, especially those in the third world, will have a keen interest in buying them," Wong said.
