Found these pics on Aviationintel.com this morning. The first is a terrible picture, and it's not sure if it's real or not, but it appears to show
a larger version of the RQ-170. The lines are similar but without the miniaturization found in US aircraft.
Considering that there were reports of Chinese engineers in Iran studying the RQ-170, the timing would be just about right for a copy to appear. No
idea of any details, and if it's stealthy or not, but it would be a big boost to the Chinese UAV program, which seems to be accelerating.
The other interesting picture from China, appears to show what may be a carrier based AWACS aircraft, similar to the E-2 Hawkeye used by the US Navy.
It's a twin engine, slender wing, multi-tail design. It appears remarkably similar to the Hawkeye. The only thing known is that it is an AWACS
aircraft, with a large rotodome antenna mounted on top.
