   According to CCTV7, the flight lasted more than 20 minutes and ended at the airfield in Hebei Province. Project leader Ou Zhongming said after the tests that "several countries, including both users of the previous models of the Tsaihun series, and new potential customers are already negotiating the acquisition of CH-5 with the developer - the Chinese Academy of Aerospace Aerodynamics".

   "The vehicle is not inferior to the UQ MQ-9 Reaper of the US corporation General Atomics - a hunter-drone, which is considered the best by Western analysts," said the chief designer of the "Tsaihun" series Shi Wen.

   According to the designer, "a UAV made of composite materials can be in the air for up to 60 hours - three times as long as its predecessors", the range of its flight is 10 thousand km, the take-off mass can reach 3.3 tons.

   The report notes that "UAV can carry up to a ton of payload, in one version - 24 missiles." The UAV can also be used for long-range radar detection and control and carry EW assets. Shi Wen added that the CH-5, in addition, "can be equipped for patrolling the water areas and searching for submarines."

   CH-5 - medium-altitude long-haul drone (MALE, medium altitude long endurance). His prototype made the first flight in August 2015.
