WZ-2000 UAV from China

Guizhou Aviation Industry Group (GAIG) revealed its WZ-2000 (Wuren Zhencha-2000, or WuZhen-2000) unmanned reconnaissance aerial vehicle (UAV) programme for the first time in the 2000 Zhuhai Air Show.

A more accurate model of the WZ-2000 was revealed later in the 2002 Zhuhai Air Show. Powered by a single WS-11 turbofan engine, the WZ-2000 design shows some evident radar cross-section reductions features, making it ‘stealthy’ to the enemy radar. The UAV made its first flight in December 2003. The onboard remote sensing system was successfully tested in August 2004.
