PAKISTAN Could Be The Potential Buyer Of CHINA’s Next Generation Tactical Combat And Reconnaissance Heli Drone CR500 ‘Golden Eagle’:
Another great milestone in the deeper and foster ties between the two Iron Brothers of PAKISTAN and CHINA as the CHIENSE Government has recently cleared the CHINA’s premier Defense Giant CHINA’s North Industries Group Corporation Limited (NORINCO) to export undisclosed numbers of CHINA’s Next Generation reconnaissance-attack helicopter drone system known as the CR500 ‘Golden Eagle.’
The report, although said that the customer is a South Asian country, but it didn’t revealed the name of the Potential South Asian Countries, as Top Defense Experts are claiming that there are high chances and it is very likely that PAKISTAN could be the potential customer of CHINA’s Next Generation CR500 ‘Golden Eagle’.
CHINA’s State Owned Defense Giant NORINCO confirmed the details by releasing the details of its potential export-clearance on its official Wechat account on Friday.
Top Defense Analysts are claiming that PAKISTAN is the only country of the world, which CHINA has allowed unrestricted access to its military technology. Moreover, PAKISTAN is also the only country of the World that also has the military access to the CHINESE BeiDou Navigational System or BeiDou. So, the prospects of the customer for CHINA Next Generation CR500 500 Golden Eagle is much higher, as PAKISTAN has also recently inducted the CHINESE made VT5 Third Generation Main Battle Tanks (MBT).
The North Industries Group Corporation Limited (NORINCO) has used a specific type of target spotter and fire guiding system on the VT4 3rd Generation main Battle Tanks (MBTs) and the same system is also mounted on the CHINESE CR500 Golden Eagle Tactical Reconnaissance Helicopter Drone.
The CR500 Golden Eagle Combat Heli Drone is powered by the co-axial mounted Twin propeller and the distinct feature of the Golden Eagle Reconnaissance Drone is that it can carry high payloads at longer distance as compared to the other helicopter drones powered by single propeller.
In non-combat mission, the drone can also be used for the transportation of cargo in far flung areas with great precision.
CHINA has showcased its lethal armed drone helicopter at the IDEZ 2017 show. The Golden Eagle Tactical Drone Heli was paired with the CHINESE PLZ52 155mm Self Propelled Howitzer.
Furthermore, CHINA revealed the armed version of the CR500 Attack Reconnaissance Heli Drone at the 2018 Air Show CHINA. At the show, the CR500 Golden Eagle Tactical Armed and Reconnaissance Drone was armed with the lethal 4 numbers of Blue Arrow 9 Air to Ground Missiles on each of its pylon that clearly indicates the armed capability of the Helicopter Drone.
CHINA’s Next Generation CR500 Golden Eagle is a state of the art Tactical helicopter that can perform multi-missions, including battle damage assessment, communication relay system, target destruction and reconnaissance of a hostile area.
One of the biggest advantages of the CHINESE Golden Eagle Long Range Attack and Reconnaissance Drone is that can also work as a target spotter guide the firing of tanks, self-propelled artillery and infantry fighting vehicles. It is pertinent to mention that PAKISTAN’s newly inducted VT-4 Main Battle Tanks (MBTs) also housed such system, which is also built by NORINCO.
The Golden Eagle CR500 Long Range Tactical Armed and Reconnaissance Drone can carry a wide range of large payload at long endurances. The compact and minimalist structure of the Drone allows its easy transportation and storage. Moreover, this Next Generation Helicopter Drone can also carry different types of electro-optical payloads and pods and it can also resist strong winds as well.
