China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) is likely to deploy unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in the near future that can be operated in swarms, as shown in video footage released by the China Electronics Technology Group Corporation (CETC) around mid-October.
中国电子科技集团公司(CETC)于10月中旬发布的视频片段显示,中国人民解放军(PLA)可能会在近期部署可以成群飞行的无人机。
 
The footage showed a modified Dongfeng Mengshi 6×6 CTL181A armoured vehicle fitted with a 48-tube multiple UAV launcher being used in trials at an undisclosed location. The video also shows several UAVs being deployed from civil helicopters, indicating that development work on multiple launch platforms is in progress.
录像显示,一辆改装后的“东风猛士”6×6 CTL181A装甲汽车装配有48架多管无人机发射器,正在未知地点进行试验。视频还显示了从民用直升机部署的几架无人机,表明在多个发射平台上的开发工作正在进行中。

Subsequent footage showed the UAVs forming a small swarm along with a simulated attack on a mock target. It also showed how imagery from the UAVs was being relayed to the operator.
随后的镜头显示,这些无人机形成了一个小集群,并对模拟目标进行了模拟攻击。它还显示了如何将来自无人机的图像中继给操作员。
 
No further details were provided about these development programmes but the release of the CETC footage comes after the authoritative Chinese magazine Ordnance Technology reported on 17 October that the successful conclusion of these trials will likely result in the vehicle-borne system entering PLA service shortly.
没有提供有关这些开发计划的更多详细信息,但在中国权威兵器技术杂志10月17日报道成功完成这些试验之后,中国电子科技集团有限公司(CETC)录像片段的发布可能会导致车载系统不久将进入中国人民解放军(PLA)服役。
 
The launcher seen on the vehicle could be adapted for installation in warships and, if installed on amphibious landing vessels, it could be used to support amphibious operations.
车辆上看到的发射器可以改装安装在军舰上,如果安装在两栖登陆舰上,则可以用来支援两栖作战。
 
China has been working for several years on using small UAVs in a swarm. In June 2017 CETC claimed a ‘world record’ of the largest number of UAVs operated as a swarm, when it launched 119 UAVs in a trial, which was increased to 200 UAVs in a trial conducted in November of that same year.
中国多年来一直致力于在集群中使用小型无人机。 2017年6月,中国电子科技集团有限公司(CETC)在一次试验中发射了119架无人机,并在同年11月进行的一次试验中增加到200架无人机,创下了“蜂群”无人机数量最多的“世界纪录”。
