Across the Middle East, countries locked out of purchasing U.S.-made drones due to rules over excessive civilian casualties are being wooed by Chinese arms dealers, who are world's main distributor of armed drones.According to the Center for the Study of the Drone at Bard College, that was the first documented example of the two drones being used in the war in Yemen.U.S. drones were first used in Yemen to kill suspected Al-Qaeda militants in 2002 .One of the biggest Chinese exports is the Cai-Hong, or Rainbow, series made by the state-owned China Aerospace Science and Technology Corp., or CASC, the largest contractor for the Chinese space program.With China's drone sales booming, there's growing pressure from U.S. arms makers to remove restrictions to let them catch up.China doesn't routinely announce arms sales like the U.S. and others, but a review of drone spottings gives some indication of who its customers are.
