Listen to the news
The purchase of the Predator drone has gained prominence in the face of growing unrest in the Indo-Pacific region against the Taliban regime and China’s aggressive stance on Afghanistan. To this end, Prime Minister Narendra Modi also met with US officials. But something can be said about this only after the government processes are completed at the meeting in December.
The three armies will receive 10-10 drones
According to media reports, 10-10 Predator drones will be given to the three forces in the army. The Indian Navy is already using two Predator drones. Therefore, the procurement process is being completed under the supervision of the Indian Air Force and the Indian Army.
Predator drones are very important to India
This defense agreement is very important for India in view of the growing tension in China and the attitude of other neighbors. Since then, Wing Loong from China has been selling these armored drones to Pakistan. The drone can launch 12 surface-to-air missiles. At the same time, Pakistan’s ally Turkey also acquired this capability in 2020 and used these drones in the war on Libya and Syria.
Characteristics of Predator Drone
Predator drones can attack from the surface to the air and destroy the enemy by dropping a variety of weapons and bombs. The special thing is that this drone can stay in the sky for more than thirty hours.
