Stealth drone completes successful maiden flight, SCMP says

China has successfully tested its first jet-powered stealth drone, making it the fourth country to use the technology after Britain, France and the United States, the South China Morning Post reported Friday. Military experts said the unmanned combat aerial vehicle will help China strengthen its intelligence gathering capability in the East and South China seas where Beijing has been engaged in territorial disputes with some of its Asian neighbors. In-flight photos of the new drone and video footage were posted on Chinese military forums and picked up by the Global Times website, the report said.
