China to sell 48 high-end armed drones to Pakistan


China will sell 48 high-end armed drones to its "all-weather ally" Pakistan in what a military observer said will be the largest deal of its kind, official media here reported Tuesday.
The cost of the major defence deal was not revealed.
Wing Loong II is a high-end reconnaissance, strike and multi-role endurance unmanned aerial system, capable of being fitted with air-to-surface weapons. 
It is roughly equivalent to the American MQ-9 Reaper drone. 
The drones will also be jointly manufactured by China and Pakistan, state-run Global Times reported.
