The one that has caught our eye the most is a wedge-shaped aircraft that appears to be a very high-speed drone.

Based on the limited information available, the shape of this does not appear to be new. Satellite images have been floating around showing a similar platform for a number of years, with the best image emerging last year from the PLAAF airbase near Malan in Xinjiang province.

The image shows a number of drones laid out on a ramp area. All are known aside from the wedge-shaped one. UASvision.com, which did a writeup on the image when it first surfaced, estimated its dimensions as 40 feet long by roughly 18 feet wide.

The rumor of the potential existence of a number of increasingly complex, high-supersonic, or even hypersonic developmental Chinese drones goes back the better part of a decade.

Eastpendulum.com has kept a close eye on developments in this shadowy space and has uncovered a number of patents that match the planform in question.

A number of flight tests likely supports the existence of this craft, and possibly its developmental progenitors, which would be just one of multiple extremely high-speed weapons capabilities China is developing.

It’s thought that the craft is launched from an H-6 bomber, or at least was for testing.
