The China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation (CASIC) appears to be developing a stealthy long-range drone which will “drastically increase” capabilities of the People’s Liberation Army in the Pacific, Russian defense analyst Vasily Kashin told Sputnik.

When it comes to drones, CASIC has mainly been known as the company behind the WJ series unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Kashin described them as “rather basic systems” manufactured by the company’s department specializing in the development and construction of cruise missiles.

The WJ-series drones “essentially resemble reusable cruise missiles outfitted with reconnaissance equipment instead of warheads. They can be used for assigning targets, making adjustments and assessing the outcome of the strikes. They could also be used as aerial targets during missile defense drills. Some types could be equipped with warheads and carry out combat tasks,” he detailed.
