China has shown off a new military drone that carries two grenade launchers. The weapon appeared during a recent combat exercise in southern China, according to state broadcaster CCTV.

The rotary-wing aircraft is also capable of firing guided munitions and conducting various missions, including tactical reconnaissance and midair interceptions, it is reported.

Beijing’s latest fighting drone was deployed during a drill by a special brigade under the land force of the People’s Liberation Army, CCTV said in a video report released by its social media account. The military exercise is said to have taken place in a rain forest in Yunnan Province.

CCTV’s report suggested that the weapon was produced by Harwar, a Chinese company specialising in the development and manufacture of drones with ‘special equipment’.

A military column published by state-run eastday.com claimed that it was the ‘Zhanfu H16-V12’ from Harwar. The model, whose name means ‘War Ax’ in English, was showcased by the company at a drone expo in Shenzhen last month.
