The Chinese drone is so good that the Egyptian drone has become addictive, bought 76 in one breath and used it against terrorists. According to media reports recently, the first defense exhibition in Egypt's history opened in Cairo on the 3rd, attracting 373 companies from 41 countries including China, the United States, Russia, Britain, France, Germany and Germany. The exhibition was the highest in Egypt, and the Egyptian president, who was born in the military, also visited the opening ceremony. At this exhibition, Egypt showed great interest in China's launch of Army weapons, including the "Pterosaur" UAV that can be loaded with the Blue Arrow 7 air-to-ground missile. Earlier, Egypt has introduced dozens of "pterosaur" drones from China to perform reconnaissance, intelligence and surveillance missions.

Know that Egypt is an important customer in the drone market in China before the introduction of the "Pterosaur" drone Egypt purchased 12 domestic ANS-209 drones in 2011. These drones are also used to carry out reconnaissance and intelligence gathering tasks. At the same time as the introduction of this drone, they also introduced relevant production licenses. This has improved the reconnaissance capabilities of the Egyptian army to a certain extent.

For Egypt, the purpose of introducing Chinese drones is mainly to combat some militant militants. People are often hidden in the crowd, difficult to identify, and it is difficult to get results by waiting for the manpower. Especially when they run away or attack, they often cause a lot of riots. To this end, it is necessary to introduce an integrated machine such as the pterosaur to prevent the terrorists from doing anything wrong. According to public information, Egypt has introduced two types of drones, the pterosaur type 1 and the pterosaur type 1D. Among them, the pterosaur type 1 drone, with a wingspan of 14 meters and a plug-in of 100 kilograms, can hold up to two ammunition, but the types of ammunition are not limited, including ground-to-ground missiles, guided bombs, anti-infantry ammunition and other weapons. About 20 hours, you can carry out both reconnaissance missions and ground attack missions. Due to its excellent performance and low price, Egypt bought 32 aircraft at a time. These drones did not disappoint the Egyptian military and created many achievements in actual combat.

Recently, the Egyptian Air Force also showed the latest drone propaganda film, and there was no pterosaur produced in China. Machine image, as well as images of the drone console.

The pterosaur type 1 drone released by the Egyptian military used the AR-1 air-to-ground missile to combat terrorist videos. The video shows that the missiles launched by the pterosaur 1 drone directly hit a high-speed pickup truck, and the bombing terrorists fled. This is an advertisement for Chinese military workers with actual combat results. After all, only the armed UAVs of China and the United States can achieve the missile hit target in actual combat.

Although the pterosaurs 1 performed well, the shortcomings were obvious. The short-stay time was too short and the amount of bombs was too small. Because the Egyptian terrorists often shot a place for a terrorist, and the personnel were scattered. This requires the sling time of the pterosaur drone, and the mounting capacity must be increased. It can be said that the pterosaur 1 is a test piece of the Egyptian military, but there are still some shortcomings after the trial.

In the attitude of being responsible to customers, China has upgraded on the basis of the pterosaur type 1 and transformed it. Pterosaur 1D drone. The drone has a wingspan of 17.5 meters and a payload of 400 kilograms for mounting four bombs and missiles. In addition to upgrading the mount capacity, it also upgraded its reconnaissance capability. China installed a synthetic aperture radar on the pterosaur 1D model, which increased the flight altitude from the previous 3,500 meters to the current 7,000 meters. This kind of upgrade makes the pterosaur 1D reconnaissance on the surface of the ground all the time, and the photos taken by the synthetic aperture radar technology are very clear.

Since pterosaurs 1 have been upgraded to meet their own requirements, Egypt has not ordered to order at this year’s Zhuhai Air Show. 32 pterosaur 1D drones. In addition to Egypt, the countries that purchase Chinese pterosaur drones are also Saudi Arabia, UAE and Uzbekistan. With the use of more and more countries, I believe that the future of China's pterosaurs will receive more. List.
