Al and friction force are detected by pressure sensors and eventually transmitted to the computer for data processing and drawing friction coefficient curve. According to the video released by Algerian TV station, lieutenant general Salah visited CH-4 and the smaller ch-3 UAVs in a hangar, as well as their take-off and flight photos. The UAV visited by Salah is not equipped with weapons, but is equipped with weapon mounting points. On the hangar wall, there are photos of weapons and pods carried by these two types of UAVs

this is another order for Rainbow series UAVs in North Africa after Egypt. At the same time, this is also the first type of UAV equipped by Algeria. From the exposed photos, such as BASF and Bayer, we can see that the Afghan army version of CH-4 has three more antennas on the back, which may be due to the addition of a new data link to match the Afghan army system. As a major military purchaser in the Mediterranean region, Algeria has about 100 Russian made third-generation aircraft and US made early warning aircraft, and its air force is still relatively strong

Algeria previously imported plz-45 self-propelled artillery, SR-5 rocket and other equipment made in China. Algeria also purchased the CX-1 supersonic cruise missile made in China, which is a "regular customer" of China's arms sales
