During the Air Show China 2006, the Chengdu Aircraft Corporation (CAC) unveiled the model of its “Xianglong” unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) concept. The UAV appeared to be a high-altitude, long-duration UAV for strategic reconnaissance role, similar in size and arrangement to the U.S. RQ-4 Global Hawk. The Xianglong completed its high-speed taxing test in October 2008, and the maiden flight is expected to take place in early 2009.

在中国2006年航空展,成都飞机公司(CAC)公开它的“翔龙”(Xianglong)无人机(UAV)概念。UAV似乎是一种高空、长-时UAV用于战略侦察角色,在大小方面和布局类似美国RQ-4“全球鹰”。2008年10月“翔龙”完成了它的高速滑行测试,而且首次飞行期望在2009年进行。

Xianglong is equipped with a jet engine mounted on top of the fuselage between the V-shape tail wings. According to Chinese media reports, Xianglong has a normal take-off weight of 7,500kg and a mission payload of 650kg. The UAV has a cruise speed of 750km/h and a maximum range of 7,000km. Unlike the Global Hawk, Xianglong does not possess global operation capability. The UAV is only intended to operate in Asia and Pacific region.

“翔龙”在机身上V-形尾翼之间装备一台喷气发动机。依照中国媒体报道,“翔龙”标准起飞重量7,500公斤和任务负载650公斤。UAV巡航速度750公里/小时和最大航程7,000公里。不像“全球鹰”,“翔龙”不具有全球操作能力。UAV仅仅预期在亚洲和太平洋区域中操作。
