Wing Loong II
Китайский БЛА "Wing Loong" I
The Yi Long medium-altitude long-endurance unmanned air vehicle was displayed for the first time during Airshow China, at Zhuhai in China on November 13, 2012. The UAV was designed by Chengdu from 2005 and first flew in 2008, although it previously only appeared in model form at trade shows. It has a wingspan of 14m (45ft 11in), a length of 9.34m (30ft 8in) and can fly to 17,388ft (5,300m) with an endurance of up to 20 hours. China claims that the Yi Long has already been exported, but has not identified the customer.

На той же выставке Китай впервые представил БПЛА "Илун". Он очень похож на американский "беспилотник" Reaper, но стоит в 30 раз меньше, примерно 1 млн. USD. Китайский аппарат меньше американского и несколько уступает ему по летным характеристикам. Так, его размах составляет 14 м, а дальность полета - 4 тыс. км, тогда как у "Рипера" размах - 20 м, а дальность - 5,9 тыс. км.

Модель БЛА Wing Loong
Inside its exhibition hall, the Aviation Industry Corporation of China displayed a small model of the Wing Loong l-D, an interim upgrade between versions I and II, featuring a composite airframe and an upgraded engine, probably a diesel. The design process of the Wing Loong l-D characterised for long endurance is complete and the prototype is expected to fly next year.
