Developed by China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation (CASIC), the WJ-600 Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) can be used for area reconnaissance, precision strike and damage assessment.
Unlike the propeller driven Wing Loong UAV and CH-4, the jet driven WJ-600 offers high speed more suitable for combat missions. The high speed does come at the cost of reduced endurance. The WJ-600 is therefore not suited for surveillance and other missions which require extended endurance.
Payload can include electro-optical reconnaissance, Electronic Intelligence (ELINT) and Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR).
