Designers from Beihang University in Beijing began to develop a large unmanned cargo vehicle, which can carry loads of up to one ton. As the N + 1 referring to China Daily, the new device is intended for civil use - with its help it will be possible to send goods or parcels over long distances.
According to the project of the new Chinese UAV, the length of the device will be 11.9 meters, and the wing span - 19.6 meters. The device with a maximum take-off weight of 3.6 tons will be able to fly at a distance of up to 1,5 thousand kilometers. It will be equipped with two turboprop engines. The cargo compartment of the aircraft will be 16 cubic meters.

The developers intend to complete the design of cargo UAV until the end of 2018, and in 2019 - to assemble the first flight model of the device. Flight tests of UAV are planned to begin in 2020. In the event that all stages of the program are successfully completed, the mass production of new unmanned aerial vehicles can be deployed in 2025.
In October last year, the Institute of Engineering Thermal Physics of China conducted the first flight tests of the AT200 drones. This promising aircraft, created for civilian use, has a maximum take-off mass of 3.4 tons. It is based on the New Zealand multipurpose aircraft PAC P-750 XSTOL and is designed for the transport of goods weighing up to 1.5 tons.

The AT200 can reach speeds of up to 313 km / h and operate flights up to 2.2 thousand kilometers at an altitude of up to 6.1 thousand meters. For takeoff and landing, the drone, as claimed by the developers, needs a strip of only 200 meters in length. The AT200 can take off and land automatically.
