Description: The Wing Loong I-D is an upgraded variant of the original Wing Lonng I unmanned aircraft featuring an all composite airframe which translates into a lightweight aircraft with the ability to stay airborne for up to 35 hours. Besides, the multi-purpose I-D variant can carry a greater payload and has a higher service ceiling while being cheaper than the Wing Loong II. The sensor suite for the new drone includes high definition electro-optical camera and synthetic aperture radar (SAR) to perform intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) missions. China expects the Wing Loong I-D to perform anti-terrorist operations, border patrol and disaster evaluation along with light attack missions utilizing four external weapon stations. All in, the new drone is capable of carrying 12 laser and satellite guided munitions. The Wing Loong I-D performed its maiden flight in December 2018 and is expected to enter service in the early 2020s.
