Chy-Nah, Conducts Test Of Suicide Drone Swarm Launched From A Truck


China recently conducted a test involving a swarm of loitering munitions, also often referred to as suicide drones, deployed from a box-like array of tubular launchers on a light tactical vehicle and from helicopters. This underscores how the drone swarm threat, broadly, is becoming ever-more real and will present increasingly serious challenges for military forces around the world in future conflicts.


Some reports have suggested that the drone swarm seen in the CAEIT video represents an actual operational capability that the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) now has, but whether or not this is the case is unclear. The overall system, especially the ground-based mobile launcher, certainly looks very mature and, as already noted, CETC and its subsidiaries have been actively working on swarming technology for years now.
