China is practicing unleashing swarms of suicide drones packed with explosives from the backs of trucks, by Pyan Pickrell.

China has a suicide drone filled with explosives that can loiter over the battlefield and hunt for targets, and a defence firm recently test-launched a swarm of them out of the back of a truck. …

Loitering munitions … fill the gap between cruise missiles and more unmanned combat aerial vehicles.

Loitering munitions are fitted with extendable wings and a camera and carry high-explosive warheads that can linger over an area while an operator searches for potential targets.

This heavy loitering munition, which was unveiled about four years ago, can be used against personnel, light vehicles, and potentially enemy armour. …

Militaries are interested in swarming drones because they offer a lot of capability, be it reconnaissance, communications jamming, or kinetic strike, and potential defences against these combat systems are insufficient, disproportionately expensive or still very immature.

You just know that China has got our interests at heart.
