The China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation has debuted a next-generation stealth combat aircraft called CH-7.

The unmanned aircraft has a wingspan of 22 meters, a length of 10 meters, and a cruise altitude of 10 to 13 km. It also has the ability to stay in the air for 15 hours, according to the Global Times.

The CH-7 is capable of launching weapons such as anti-radiation missiles, long-distance precision-guided bombs, and more. It can also intercept radar electronic signals and detect high-value targets.
