HALIFAX – In 2019 Chinese military contractors began selling armed, killer drones to customers in the Middle East according to Mark Esper, US Secretary of Defense.
Fast forward to 2020 and we are now learning that the Chinese have developed their own flamethrower drones. For now, they are being used for humanitarian, non-military purposes.
Blue Sky Rescue, China’s largest non-governmental humanitarian organisation, used a flamethrowing drone to help remove wasp nests in southern China.
The video, shot in the city of Chongqing on December 7, shows a drone spraying fire onto a wasp nest on top of a tree.
According to reports, the Blue Sky Rescue spent 85,000 yuan ($13,000) to get the drone to remove the wasp nests for local residents for free.
The rescue team has removed 11 wasp nests which were located in high places and there were still over 100 nests waiting to be removed.
