Shenyang CK-1 

Create an aircraft Shenyang CK-1 was initiated by Chinese designers in the spring of 1968 years. The formulation has been almost completely taken the Soviet development of the aircraft under the designation La-17. Despite the fact that this machine was produced in the USSR in 1953 year, China's designers managed to make a lot of innovations in the unmanned vehicle. First of all, it has been significantly redesigned fuselage and fuel system that will allow for better flight performance than the original model.

During the development, it was decided to apply a normal aerodynamic scheme with a rectangular wing. Also, for convenience of operation, the horizontal and vertical tails were made the same and could be replaced with each other. As a power plant, the aircraft used a single engine of a turbojet engine, which was mounted under the body of the machine. The takeoff of the Shenyang CK-1 UAV was possible only with the use of a ground-based launcher and additional powder accelerators, which accelerated the car to a certain speed and height, after which the main engine was started. The entire flight was controlled from the control control station located on the ground, in addition, automatic flight is possible at the expense of a given program.
