AVIC 601-S Shape Varying is a Chinese military unmanned aerial vehicle, designed by Aviation Industry Corporation of China.

The multifunctional unmanned aerial vehicle of the AVIC 601-S Shape Varying model began to be designed by Chinese aircraft builders at the beginning of the 2000-ies of the past, and initially the project was intended exclusively for experimental purposes, however, due to the fact that the drone tests were completed successfully enough, the project was modernized, And later it was put into serial production.

The Chinese military unmanned aerial vehicle is designed to perform tasks related to reconnaissance, observation and patrol flights, for use in target designation and fire control of artillery systems, etc. Moreover, it was initially assumed that the drone would also be equipped with its own weapon systems to combat With the positions and armored vehicles of the potential adversary, however, ultimately, to minimize the cost of the UAV, it was decided to abandon it.

The military drone of the AVIC 601-S Shape Varying was first introduced in 2008, however, this device was subjected to its early flight tests much later. The aircraft itself is made in the configuration of an aircraft type, and because of the rather large dimensions, the device can take off and land only on specially prepared runways.

The power part of the AVIC 601-S Shape Varying is represented by one jet engine. Which allows to develop the speed of the flight in 750 km / h, and overcome the distance to 1200 kilometers.
