China has unveiled a new armoured vehicle that is capable of firing 12 suicide drones to launch attacks on targets and to conduct reconnaissance operations on Tuesday at the Beijing Civil-Military Integration Expo 2019.

The 5.7 meter-long, 2.4 meter-wide 4x4 off-road vehicle was developed by Beijing Zhongzi Yanjing Auto Co Ltd.

It has a max speed of 125kmph and can adapt to the various demands of highly mobile troops.

It carries 12 pneumatic launch tubes that fire drones into the air, which then spread their wings and become operationally controllable.

Among the 12 drones the vehicle can launch, four of them are the smaller SULA30 reconnaissance drones that can stay in the air for more than an hour.

Eight of the drones are two meter-wide SULA89 reconnaissance and attack drones that can carry more than two kilograms of explosives each.

The SULA89 is designed to destroy mobile light armored vehicles, field fortifications and armed personnel in cover, the company said. »
