I doubt it is Chinese.......though the colours lead one that way.

I have superimposed one of the vehicles that is at the edge of the shot. Ford Raptor? Have used the dimensions for 2016/17 Ford Raptor F150 (smaller than the current model).

Assuming it has the short cargo box of 67" this gives a length of 220.2". Width (excluding mirrors) 86.3".

This makes the aircraft 64.2' (19.5 metres) long, and 172.6' (52.6 metres wide).

If someone recognises the vehicle as something else, then we can rework the dimensions. Either way, this thing is pretty big.

I genuinely did not know what this was.

Rick gets first prize here for guessing it correctly.

Rick, I did look at the Wiki reference you gave, but the UAV in the pictures just looked smaller. So I continued my hunt, and then after finding the photo below got the same answer!

Dimensionally it is a fraction smaller then what I calculated it to be, but that was always going to have a variance.

---------------------------

I Google Earth hunt late at night and now have a bucket full of things to identify - including some very strange man-made features. This was one of the "odd" aircraft I found recently.
