China is the country, today, a reference within the drone world, especially thanks to its impressive advances in technology. With this in mind, it is not surprising that, when the time comes, they want to take advantage of all that capacity in the military, hence it should not surprise us when the People's Liberation Army Chinese shows us his new kamikaze drones.
The idea, as you are surely thinking, comes from all those actions that are being carried out by ISIS where certain members modify certain aircraft in a very rustic way in order to turn them into real flying bombs. The Chinese idea goes a little further since these drones have been manufactured, designed and equipped with the best technology to achieve this objective.
The Chinese People's Liberation Army presents its CH-901, a new generation of kamikaze drones
As has been communicated, this drone has been baptized with the name of CH-901. It stands out for certain technical characteristics such as homologate a weight of about 9 kilograms and have a small but powerful warhead so that it can travel up to two kilometers to end up attacking a specific target. This attack can be carried out at a speed of between 14 and 144 kilometers per hour.
The idea behind the development of this type of kamikaze drones is that the drone is capable, using its camera, of detecting and recognizing a target. Once it has detected you it travels at full speed until it collides and explodes on you. As a detail, or at least this has been what its developers have commented, in addition to exploiting, the drone can be used in surveillance tasks, although its main purpose in terms of design and development of the project is that the drone serves as a weapon of attack.
