CASC PW-1 is a Chinese military unmanned aerial vehicle, designed by the specialists of the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation.

The CASC PW-1 unmanned aerial vehicle is oriented exclusively to military applications, although taking into account the capabilities of this aircraft, the drone could also be used in the civil sphere. The Chinese aircraft CASC PW-1 belongs to the class of multifunctional air equipment, in particular, this device can be used for aerial photography, reconnaissance, patrol monitoring and monitoring missions, used to assess damage and coordination of allied forces during hostilities, and To adjust the fire control systems of artillery.

The CASC PW-1 multi-purpose unmanned aerial vehicle was designed by Chinese aircraft builders from the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation with an airplane-type configuration, but due to the lack of an own chassis system in the drone, it is launched by dispersing on special rail rails that Gives the ability to operate the facility even in conditions of unprepared terrain. The drone itself is quite large in size, in particular, the wingspan of the device reaches 4.5 meters, which in turn can cause some difficulties with its transportation.

The power part of the Chinese multifunctional unmanned air vehicle is represented by a single piston gasoline engine, which is capable of accelerating the device to the maximum speed of flight at 150 km / h, while the maximum duration of autonomous airborne exposure reaches 4,5 hours.
