China has released a video that shows the testing of their new terrifying battle truck, which can launch 48 kamikaze drones from the back of a Russian tigr vehicle they call 'Barrage Swarm Done.'
The drones can travel at 110mph and lock on to a single high-value target or hit 48 different targets. They are also synced together to make sure no drones collide mid-air. Each drone carries 4 pounds of high explosive warheads potentially powerful enough to destroy tanks and armored vehicles.
It will be deployed when its mission is to eliminate targets beyond the traditional line of sight and kill from above.
According to DailyMail
China has flaunted its latest military drones: a team of small attacking aircraft that can work together in midair to pinpoint and destroy targets on the ground.
The troop dubbed the 'drone swarm' by its developer, can be launched from the back of a truck or a helicopter and strikes the enemy precisely, a propaganda video shows.
This is the first time China has put into use a group of unmanned aerial vehicles that operate as a unit to complete military tasks, according to their state-controlled manufacturer.
China has stepped up its military drone race with the United States in recent years.
Among others, its arsenal includes unmanned stealth fighter jets fitted with AK-47 rifles and deadly drone bombers which can fly 35 hours without refuelling.
The news comes after China's state broadcaster showed off a military drone that carries two grenade launchers.
The new drone troop completed a series of tests in September, said its state-run creator, China Electronics Technology Group Corporation (CETC).
All of the aircraft are said to be fixed-wing drones, instead of multi-rotor drones. With a rigid structure, fixed-wing drones can fly at higher altitudes and are faster and more stable.
