China began to produce cargo drones

The Chinese Star UAV System began to produce a serial production and the first deliveries of the multi-purpose unmanned aerial vehicle PAC P-750 XSTOL.

The drone AT200 is designed on the New Zealand basis,  weight is 3.4 tons and able to carry loads weighing up to 1.5 tons. It can reach speeds of up to 313 km per hour and fly to a distance of 2.2 thousand km. AT200 flight altitude is 6,1 thousand meters.

According to the developers, a strip of only 200 m in length is required for takeoff and landing of a Chinese drone. The drone can take off and land in automatic mode and is the world's first mass-produced UAV with a carrying capacity more than 1 ton.

 According to experts, the use of such devices will facilitate the task of providing people living in remote areas of China with food and necessary goods and at the same time to reduce the cost of delivery.
