CASC CH-5 - Chinese military impact drone, developed by «China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation» in 2016 year.

The design of an unmanned aerial vehicle of the CASC CH-5 model began by Chinese aircraft manufacturers in 2011, while this device, although it was intended for operation in the military sphere, its potential was very high, which is associated with the effectiveness of the use of a drone that is capable of performing terrain reconnaissance, carrying out patrolling the airspace, carrying out special missions related to inflicting pinpoint strikes on the positions of a potential enemy, providing fire cover, etc.

Its first flight model of an unmanned aerial vehicle CASC CH-5 2016 has made in the year, and at the end of the same year, the device was officially presented to the public, and therefore, also been deployed and the mass production of these drones.

Drone CASC CH-5 equipped 8 precision missiles designed to destroy ground targets and 8 missiles designed to counter air targets, and, in the autonomous flight mode, the drone may be about 48 hours, which secured him a high attractiveness for military structures.

However, it is important to note that when the length of the fuselage in its 12 meters, swing wing UAV is 21 meter, which in turn requires to operate drone presence of a specially prepared runway.

Power section UAV CASC CH-5 represented by one rotary engine, which enables the system to develop the maximum allowable airspeed in 300 km \ h.
