UN experts are currently investigating the use of Chinese-made missiles and drones after they identified a Chinese-made Blue Arrow air-to-surface missile and the probable use of a Wing Loong unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) in the April 19-20 missile strikes near Tripoli, Libya. The panel of experts are also investigating the possible role of the UAE as they are “almost certain” that the missiles were not directly supplied by China or the manufacturer. Wing Loong is a medium-altitude long-endurance UAV, capable of carrying loads of 200 kg. The Blue Arrow missile, also known as the LJ-7 missile, can be loaded on Wing Loong and Wing Loong II.
