US firm Composites Engineering (CEi) hopes to pitch its BQM-167i unmanned target drone to the Taiwanese navy.

A tender is yet to be announced, but the company's Taiwan agent said the Republic of China navy is likely to require 10 reusable drones.

CEi has already sold the BQM-167i system to the Taiwanese air force, but declined to provide specific numbers.

The BQM-167i has a maximum speed of Mach 0.93, and can operate across a flight envelope covering loads from +9g to -2g.
