The lack of new threads on new subjects I find...disturbing. So! Let's fix that.
The Chinese recently unvriledntheir AV-500W. The max takeoff weight is 450 kg and has a top speed of 170 km/h. Their is an accompanying missile with
a short 5 km range.
More info, but bizarrely without a pic:
I'd say they are roughly a decade behind us with this beast, but that number might be as little as 5 years given how sceloratic the pentagon has
become or as much as 15 if the Chinese are showing this off earlier than the norm for them. Time will tell.
