The development and design of the multi-purpose unmanned aerial vehicle of the model was conducted by the Chinese experts in the field of aerospace technologies and aerospace engineering specifically for deployment in the military sphere. This device is a high-tech drone used to perform a wide range of various tasks, which includes the collection of reconnaissance data, patrol and observation flights, coordination of military units in the battlefields, etc. Among other things, a number of modifications of this device can also be positioned as an independent combat air Means - unmanned aircraft CASC Rainbow is equipped with missiles, which allows you to destroy ground targets.

Depending on the version of the unmanned aerial vehicle, drone CASC Rainbow may be different from each other dimensions of its fuselage, however, thanks to the good aerodynamic properties, the UAV is highly maneuverable.
