Currently, Indian Air Force inventory already owns approximately 110 Israeli drones which have now been renamed as P-4. These drones are fitted with electro-optical sensors to hover over high-value military targets such as surveillance bases and radar stations before exploding them.

The three forces have a fleet of more than 100 of these unmanned aerial vehicles which have been acquired in different batches. The forces are also working on developing indigenous combat drones which could be deployed at China and Pakistan border.
