Turkmenistan took delivery the new Chinese high-speed WJ-600A/D combat unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV).

Turkmenistan on Thursday (Oct 27) marked 25 years of independence from the Soviet Union with celebrations across the country and a grandiose military parade in the capital Ashgabat. The Turkmen military has shown a new Chinese high-speed WJ-600A/D combat unmanned aerial vehicles during the parade.

The WJ-600A/D is a combat unmanned aerial vehicle developed by  3rd Academy Hiwing of China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation (CASIC).

The  WJ-600 A/D incorporates both the reconnaissance and ground attack capability so that it can perform both missions, and hence A/D in its name stands for attack drone. WJ-600 A/D is designed to carry out both the reconnaissance mission of WJ-600 and the ground attack mission of HW-610 in a single platform.

The payload threshold will reach 600 kilograms for a base armed surveillance mission sortie and special mission packages will enable it to undertake active reconnaissance, target simulation, electronics warfare and communications sorties as required. Each wing will support a single hardpoint for a missile or similar ordnance – guided/homing anti-tank, drop bombs, etc… The powerplant will provide an estimated maximum speed of 720 kilometers per hour with a service altitude of approximately 10,000 meters with an operational range out to 2,100 kilometers.
