China has launched a swarm of 119 fixed-wing unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), breaking the previous record of 67 drones, an official said on Sunday.

According to the China Electronics Technology Group Corp (CETC), the 119 drones performed catapult-assisted take-offs and formations in the sky, reports Xinhua news agency.
