China flaunts its new deadly drone bomber which can fly 35 hours without refuelling and spy on enemies from 23,000ft

China has shown off its latest drone bomber as it releases footage of the unmanned aircraft completing its first flight.

Wing Loong I-D, a type of combat and spy drone, can carry more than 10 different types of weapons and fly up to 35 hours without refuelling.

It is also able to scout information from as high as 7,000 metres (22,965 feet), according to Chinese news site Sina Military.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The problem here, is not that the Chinese military has this weapon, which sounds very formidable indeed; the question which must be raised at this time, is why do American military not have either the equivalent of such a weapon, or better?!?

"Why do American military not have the equivalent or better?"

We don't know what the US military has, Mike. Let me tell you a story: I saw a cutaway technical drawing of the Osprey V-22 in 1975. In an East European children's book. (When the region was still a Soviet satellite.) Yet Wikipedia claims the maiden flight of the V-22 was in 1989.

So the US military knows what it has, and the Russian military knows it too. The only people who don't know is us, civilians, who paid for it. So we cannot really make informed statements what our military has. We can only state what we can see, which is: whatever they have isn't winning the war in Afghanistan, Iraq, etc. This apparently requires something else.
