الصين تعرض قوتها الجوية الجديدة

By Jordi Bou

September 29, 2021 - كشفت الصين عن الطائرات الجديدة المتطورة في أهم معارضها الجوية في تشوهاي، في ظل مطالبتها بالمناطق المتنازع عليها من تايوان إلى بحر الصين الجنوبي والتنافس المتزايد مع الولايات المتحدة.

The new aircraft, unveiled at the China International Aviation and Aerospace Exhibition in the southern city of Zhuhai, included a prototype of the CH-6 long-endurance drone, capable of reconnaissance and strike operations, and the WZ-7 high-altitude surveillance drone.

Also capturing attention for the first time was the J-16D, an electronic attack version of China’s J-16 fighter.

The South China Sea is one of the most disputed regions in the world. China claims most of it but surrounding countries and the U.S. disagree.
