In 1986 the PLA Air Force (PLAAF) requested a new carrier to replace its ageing Tu-4 to carry and launch the WuZhen-5 (WZ-5, also known as ChangHong-1) unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). Shaanxi began to develop the Y-8E UAV carrier based on its Y-8 turboprop transport aircraft in October 1988. The first prototype was finished in March 1990, and the first UAV launch test was carried out successfully in October of the same year. The aircraft entered service with the PLAAF in late 1990.
在1986年PLA空军(PLAAF)要求一种新的运输机去代替它陈旧的Tu-4去携带并且发射WuZhen-5(WZ-5,也即是ChangHong-1)无人机(UAV)。陕西展在1988年10月以它的Y-8涡轮螺旋桨推进运输机为基础开始发展Y-8E无人机(UAV)运载机。第一架原型在1990年3月完成,而且第一次无人机(UAV)发射测试在同年10月成功地实行。飞机在1990年后期中进入PLAAF服役。
