China is currently one of the leading manufacturers of aerial, land and sea drones.  On November 8, international aerospace trade show China Air Show 2022 in Zhuhai will reveal several advance weapons of the global leading military power.

The Chinese Academy of Aerospace Aerodynamics, part of the Chinese Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation (CASC), published a new promo video showing the line of the “Caihong” (Rainbow) series UAVs. The video included footage of the combat use of UAVs of this manufacturer by foreign customers:

The country with the biggest population and industrial base having military drones is scary. They could basically build them faster then they get destroyed and overwhelm anyone else.

Russians were not about carpet bombing and destroying anything moving, including women and children; as USA and NATO do.

USA is a shithole, EU is becoming one

If they were serious about it, they should sent some to be tested in Ukropistan against NATO technology. Total secret, just use them with no media cover.

They might only send them if russia would get into real trouble. China does not support russia gaining territory.

USA is a shithole, EU is becoming one

Why not? Russia might colonize a billion Chinese in the free lands in the Eastern Europe 😅. The only problem of Ukraine is that it is full of Ukrainians.

China despises teritorial changes. The russians accepted the sovereignity of ukraine in the past so this ship has sailed in the eyes of the chines who never accepted the independence of taiwan. They are consequent in their stance support of the territorial integrity everywhere. Be it Serbia (Kosovo), Syria (Al Quaida and Kurds), Ukraine (Krimea and Donbas). The US and Russia support sovereinity when it suits them and ignore it when it does as well.

Serbia and Syria – USA pro seperatists, Russia pro sovereinity, China pro sovereinity

Ukraine and Georgia – USA pro sovereinity, Russia pro seperatists, China pro sovereinity

Chinese drones and weapons are notorious to fail in war . They have a failure rate of 80 percent and you can ask nations which use Chinese weapons can tell you that . They do PR stunts but in reality war they fail miserables, they copy American external shells of weapons while internally these are blanks ,so never trust on Chinese

Maybe China will hit Russia hard in there soft belly. China needs more livingroom so watch out Ruskies. It can be hard against the Chinese military when you are busy in Ukraine.

Chinese might earn a colony in the Eastern Europe by helping Russians. Liberate Odessa and get access to another port.

If China is at this pace now, imagine in 10 years time while China’s opponents are busy just keeping their heads out of the water with no fuel and no industrial capacity. It’s easy to bet that China will rule the world. I would say India could be on its way as soon as they realize Europe and America are not their friends. Being friends with China would put a big belly on Indians and make them the next superpower too.

Well it was your people who are the oligarchs …

What's Up

Airborne drones check! What about humanoid drones, that’s where is going to get really scary. Imagine an underwater drone carrying 100 humanoid drone soldiers. Drops them off a various beaches. Then they walk onto the beach from the sea and towards their target objectives slaughtering any soldier in sight. What a way to prepare a landing zone/bridge head. What will a defender do!

EMP them or even better hack them and use them against their creator. Poetic justice!
