It's funny how Chinese drone technology looks to be decades ahead of Russia, considering they only became a military power like a decade ago lol.

Even stealth jets. China looks to have built one from scratch, while Russia simply modified a 40 year old airframe..

Come on Russia.. we expect more from you than that. Hell, at the height of Soviet power, your defense budgets made even the most red blooded Republican in the US tinkle a little..

The only difference is that Russians desigm theor own no matter how crude or obsolete but Chinese thieves just copy and reengineer anything that comes their way. That Chinese drone is an exact replica of the Reaper. Their second so called stealth is a copy of the F35 with dual engines but doubt the same tech. I can go on and on but i guess you catch the drift

Dual engine compared to single engine takes a bit more engineering than what the Russians did. I'm still convinced they took an existing airframe, painted it black, and added some jagged edges lol..

Chinese drones are combat tested and they work. Quantity > quality what is the point of having drones if they cost as much as a plane.

The Soviet Union was world renown for its (bad) copying. The Concordski is a good example ^^
