Chinese state-owned television has released video footage showing what appears to be the X-Chimera vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) being used by a brigade of the People’s Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF) Airborne Corps: an indication that the twin-tailboom UAV is either being tested or is already in service with the corps.

Weihutang, a programme on military affairs from state broadcaster China Central Television (CCTV), released footage on 27 September showing the platform, which is made by Chengdu-based company Aossci, taking part in a large-scale exercise that CCTV said took place recently in the Chinese autonomous regions of Inner Mongolia and Xinjiang.
