MilitaryEzyInfo.com – China’s Aisheng UAV series includes the BZK-006, which is believed to be an evolution of the ASN-205/207 (WZ-6) series.
The BZK-600 is part of a larger Chinese effort to develop an unmanned aerial vehicle that can cover a wide range of combat missions, with much of the design coming from Chinese companies rather than foreign suppliers.
BZK-006 UAV Design
The design of this UAV consists of a deep tubular fuselage that houses a complete set of avionics, camera equipment, sensors, and motors. The engine is mounted at the rear of the fuselage and is used to drive a multi-blade propeller unit known as a “plunger”.
This completely eliminates the optics in the nose of the aircraft. Above the front of the fuselage is a dome attached to a support structure.
At The Rear Are The Bombs
The main fuselage is attached to the left and right shoulders, and each trailer edge has a thin boom that extends to the tail.
The BZK-006 has no conventional landing gear and was launched into the air by a rocket catapult (usually from the rear platform of a Chinese military truck). The aircraft slid down on its abdomen twice to land.
Size of the BZK-006 UAV
The BZK-006 is larger than its predecessor, the WZ-6, at 4.3 meters in length and 1.5 meters in height. It is an attack platform designed specifically for use on the battlefield, intended to attack ground targets as an “unmanned combat vehicle” (UCV) with two attachment points assigned to each wingman under the wings.
How Long Can These Drones Fly?
This UAV is capable of carrying high-altitude air-to-surface missiles to attack ground targets from a distance. It can stay in the air for about 12 hours and offers excellent mobility.
At the time of this writing (2019), the number of BZK-006s in service is unknown. A model called BZK-600A is known, but the differences between the two are also unknown.
