China has released a new propaganda video of its deadly unmanned fighter jet, which shows the aircraft striking still and moving targets.

CH-5, also known as Rainbow-5, was unveiled in 2016 and is said to be China’s largest and most powerful drone bomber.

The aircraft can carry 16 missiles and strike targets while flying at an altitude of 6,000 metres (19,685 feet), Chinese media have claimed.

It can fly up to 60 hours without refuelling with a maximum flight altitude of 8,000 metres (26,246 feet) and a maximum range of 10,000 kilometres (6,213 miles).

The propaganda film, shared by Chinese state media People’s Daily on its social media account, was released ahead of China’s largest airshow which will take place from November 6 to 11 in Zhuhai.

The clip includes a recent live-fire drill during which CH-5, billed as an ‘air bomb truck’, successfully blew up moving targets.

It also shows the footage of the aircraft’s flight test in May on the Tibetan Plateau.

During the test, the warplane successfully took off and landed at an airport 3,500 metres (11,482 feet) above sea level.

CH-5 is developed and manufactured by the China Academy of Aerospace Aerodynamics.

It’s the latest member of the country’s Rainbow Drone Project.

The drone bomber has reported entered a mass-producing stage.
