CH-4 - multipurpose military unmanned aerial vehicle developed by Chinese corporation «China Aerospace Science Corporation».

Development and design of the Chinese military multipurpose unmanned aircraft carried out by special order from the Ministry of Defense of China. Due to the success of the previous UAV projects, it was decided to provide a similar problem is the corporation «CASC», which later himself entirely justified.

Multipurpose UAV CH-4 designed for reconnaissance, patrol and observation flights, as well as for special missions. Despite the rather narrowly focused application of the drone, the project proved to be very promising in this case, the device still continues to be produced, although it has a rather large cost.

Chinese unmanned aerial vehicle CH-4 has huge dimensions, in particular, for its length and height in 8,5 and 3,4 meters respectively, the wingspan of the drone is 18 meters. Nevertheless, it is important to clarify the fact that this factor did not affect the aerodynamic design of the drone, but rather the contrary increased its flight performance, providing the opportunity to be in the flight a very long time.

Despite the relatively large size of the UAV, its propulsion system is represented by a single piston engine, which allows to carry out drone flights at cruising speed in 180 km \ h., At the same time, the autonomy of operation of the UAV is up to 30 hours (without additional load).
