  BEIJING, January 5 (ChinaMil) – The Pterosaur, a new unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) independently developed by China, has ushered in its maiden test flight in formations in early 2015. The mass delivery of this type of UAV can be expected this year, according to plan.

  With a body length of more than 9 meters and a wingspan of 14 meters, the Pterosaur UAV may stay in the air for a long time.

  Flying in formations may help the Pterosaurs collaborate better during tasks performance, which is also a big test for the control system.

  After more than 20 minutes of flying over mountainous in south China’s Guizhou province, the Pterosaurs found the airport accurately and landed successfully.

  As an advanced UAV in the world capable of carrying gout reconnaissance and precise strikes, Pterosaur, with its outstanding performance, has attracted a number of domestic and foreign users.

The screen capture of the CCTV news shows a flight formation of the Pterosaur UAVs preparing to take off.
