China will present its first UCAV or Unmanned Combat Air Vehicle, a combat drone, operable from the deck of an aircraft carrier, at the Zhuhai Airshow next November. Presented under the name "Caihong-X", this drone would be stealthy, like the French Neuron, or the American Stingray, and would be capable of being activated by electromagnetic catapults. It should be noted that photos had circulated on Twitter showing the same drone using a springboard comparable to that of the first two Chinese aircraft carriers, which do not have a catapult.
