Beijing: 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.

The "swarm intelligence" is regarded as the core of artificial intelligence of unmanned systems and the future of intelligent unmanned systems.

Zhao Yanjie, an engineer with CETC, said since drones were invented in 1917, intelligent swarms have become a disruptive force to "change rules of the game".
