Armed unmanned aerial systems (more commonly known as “drones”) have gained worldwide attention for their use on battlefield that range from Afghanistan to Syria, with China’s CH-3 and CH-4 joining the fight in locales like Iraq and Nigeria. But these drones have been built around a winged airplane design, requiring a substantial logistical footprint, including a lengthy runway, to operate from. They also can fly above targets, but can’t perch and stare or enter real or urban canyons.

Enter helicopter drones, an area where the field is headed, including in China. In June 2016, an unmanned V-750 helicopter UAV successfully fired anti-tank missiles at targets. Jointly developed by Weifang Tianxiang Aerospace Industry Co.Ltd., Qingdao Haili Helicopters Manufacturing Co. Ltd and certified by Chinese aviation authorities in 2014, the 750kg V-750 drone is used by both civilian and military users.
