High Speed Target Drone

WF-B1A high speed target drone


WF-B1A high speed target drone is used for air defense/air force operation trainning and missile system development and evaluation. It features high maneuver, low RCS, low IR emission and super low altitude capabilities, and can be used for reconnaissance, decoy and EMS missions after modification. Its high performance, reliability and availability have been verified through deployment in large quantity.
