CAIG Sky Wing III is a Chinese military multi-purpose unmanned aerial vehicle developed by the Chengdu Aircraft Industry Corporation.

The CAIG Sky Wing III unmanned aerial vehicle was designed by Chinese aircraft manufacturers exclusively for military purposes, however, despite this fact, the multifunctional aircraft proved to be quite practical, since it can perform a wide range of various tasks, including reconnaissance of airspace and terrain, Observation, patrol and monitoring operations, aerial photography and aerial photography, etc.

The Chinese military unmanned aerial vehicle CAIG Sky Wing III was designed by engineers and scientists from the Chengdu Aircraft Industry Group in an aircraft-type configuration, while experts point to the apparent similarity of this drone to the US Northrop Grumman RQ-4 Grobal Hawk. This device has very large overall dimensions, in particular, with the length of the fuselage of the drone in 8 meters 90 centimeters, the wingspan of the aircraft reaches 18 meters 80 centimeters, so that the operation of the UAV requires the presence of a specially prepared airstrip.

The CAIG Sky Wing III multi-purpose unmanned aerial vehicle is equipped with one jet engine, which allows the device to develop the maximum possible speed of flight at 850 km / h, with a maximum range of missions of 7 thousand kilometers, and the duration of stay in the air to 6,5 hours.
