China has previously held details of its new “Shendiao” high-altitude, long-range, anti-stealth drone as top secret, but Hong Kong’s Ta Kung Pao reveals more details in its latest report.
The report says that the Shendiao has a higher performance level and better operational capabilities than America’s RQ-4 Global Hawk.
According to Ta Kung Pao, the Shendiao is 25 metres long with a wingspan of 50 metres. It is dual-hull.
The greater wingspan enables it to fly at at a height of 25 km, much higher than Global Hawk’s 18 km. Its speed is Mach 0.8 faster than the Global Hawk.

Are you implying they don't have the means to make stuff like this?.
You can bet they do.
Is it only the USA who can design the best aircraft?.

How can they claim to be able to detect American stealth aircraft when no one outside of a very few Americans know what makes the aircraft stealthy?
