Chinese unmanned mini-destroyer in sea trials

The PLA Navy’s well-armed unmanned surface vessel has conducted its first sea trials.

A+A-

The unmanned vessel is designed for remote-control or autonomous operation, like many projects developed by western navies and defense contractors. However, it may be unique in possessing all of the core capabilities of a surface combatant.

Its developers say that the vessel has a phased-array radar, a sonar suite, a forward weapon, two short-range air defense missiles, two vertical launch silos for small anti-aircraft / anti-ship missiles and two tubes launching torpedoes.
