CHINA has developed a world-first stealth drone capable of flying for extended periods of time and hitting targets with extreme precision completely undetected.
The craft, named Sharp Sword, is part of a new generation of unmanned combat air vehicles, and is thought to be capable of evading current US defence systems.
It was unveiled at China National Day parade on October 1, when president Xi Jinping declared that “no force can stop the Chinese people and the Chinese nation forging ahead”.
The craft is similar in appearance to the Predator drone used by the US since 1995, but its wing design and the concealment of components like its exhaust gives it enhanced stealth capabilities.
