The two RQ-450 drones are not equipped with weapons and will be used for reconnaissance and patrolling, reported Xinhua.
Two other RQ-450s have already been in the service of the air force since 2011, including the one deployed during last year's UN Sustainable Development Conference (Rio+20), which drew leaders from around the globe.
The two newly-received drones, with several upgrades such as better cameras and a radar system, will be used to enhance public security during the FIFA Confederations Cup in June, the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2016 Summer Olympics.
