Indian Army To Procure Heron Armed Drones From Israel

The Indian Army is all set to acquire Heron Drones from Israel. An India-Israel defence deal worth $ 400 million was agreed upon in the annual working joint group discussion between India and Israel. As EurAsian Times reported earlier, India Armed Forces will acquire 10 Heron TP armed drones from Israel. This deal between India and Israel was lingering on since 3 years.

Indian Army to have more power with the induction of Heron Drones

This deal of $ 400 million will be completed under ‘Project Cheetah.’ After getting Heron armed drones from Israel the Indian Army will be capable of hitting targets, across various terrains. These Heron Drones would add immensely to the power of the Indian Armed Forces. The Indian Army as of now uses drones only for surveillance and reconnaissance missions.

Now with the induction of armed drones from Israel, Indian Army will also be equipped to eliminate targets using advanced heron drones. This could help India significantly in destroying various terror launchpads near the Line of Control. These armed drones from Israel will multiply the force of the Indian Armed Forces and India’s enemies now have another reason to fear.

India to enter the elite club

Only a few nations, for now, use armed drones which include the United Kingdom, the United States, China, Israel etc. Now after the induction of these armed drones, India too would be a part of the elite club.

Additionally, in the meeting held on Tuesday the deal pertaining to Spike anti-tank guided missile systems for the Indian Army was also discussed. The Indian Army presently is facing a shortage of such advanced missile systems. Experts believe that if this shortage is prolonged then India will lose its edge over the Pakistan Army which would surely not be a good thing.
