First Sales from China to Europe 11 September, 2019

China sold its remote-controlled aircraft to a European country for the first time. Serbia’s military will receive Wing Loong , Chinese-built armed drones, in the next six months. “This sale will greatly strengthen the Serbian military, which will gain capabilities it has not had in the past,” Defence Minister Aleksandar Vulin said in an interview Tuesday on state-owned television. 

Wing Loong, also known as Pterodactyl-1, combat drones, which look similar to the U.S.-built MQ-9 Reaper and MQ-1 Predator family of unmanned aerial vehicles, have the ability to scout, discover targets during the day and at night, and strike them with laser-guided bombs and missiles.
