This article talks about the newest addition to the Iraqi Air Force, a drone [bbc.com]. Surely this is unremarkable piece of equipment, we seen it before right? [google.com] Except upon closer inspection (or by reading TFA, which is less likely) you quickly realize it is not in fact the U.S. made Predator drone, but a Chinese CH-4 [google.com]. The CH-4 is far from a cheap knock-off, but instead is claimed to be superior in every way [wantchinatimes.com] to the U.S. drone. It sports such revolutionary additions as longer wing-span, bigger payload, and of course "upside down tail thingy."
Is this a story of every increasing proliferation of armed drones around the world, the willingness of some nations to export advance hardware anywhere, or simply a piece about military/industrial espionage? You be the judge.
