China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation (CASC) showed a mock up of the FH-97 drone at an air show in Zhuhai
According to The Drive, the device is not only similar in appearance to the American unmanned slave XQ-58A Valkyrie, but also intended for the same purposes. The technical characteristics of the drone are unknown.
The unmanned slave XQ-58A Valkyrie is being developed by the American company Kratos for the US Air Force Research Laboratory.
CASC showed a mock-up of the FH-97 drone at the Zhuhai air show, which is very similar to the XQ-58A Valkyrie:
unobtrusive trapezoidal fuselage, wide swept wing and V-shaped tail.
But the FH-97 has a few differences. It has not one, but two engines, and an electro-optical sensor is located under the nose.
In combat, the FH-97 is assigned the same role as the XQ-58A Valkyrie.
The technical characteristics of the FH-97 were not disclosed.
