CH-4A is a medium-altitude long-endurance (MALE) tactical UAV system. Missions envisaged include: reconnaissance, precision target location and designation, electronic warfare, communications relay, signal intelligence collection, battle management and digital mapping.

The mission payload adopts a modularized sensor suite including electro-optical and infrared camera, laser range-finder and laser target illuminator, communication relay and synthetic aperture radar (SAR).


CH-4B and CH-4A have the similar appearance and construction, but with more options of combat mission payloads. It can carry up to 4 AGMs (AR-1) or 4 precision guided bombs (60 kg level each), providing unparalleled battle effectiveness to time-sensitive targets.


The CH-4 model showed at AirShow China 2012 is armed with two AR-1 short range ground-to-air missile and two FT-5 guided-bombs.
