    The Pakistan Navy has inducted its first squadron of indigenously made unmanned aerial vehicles that will be used for maritime interdiction operations in coastal areas.

    The UAVs were inducted into the naval fleet during a ceremony held at the PNS Mehran airbase in Karachi on Wednesday.

    The Uqab-II drones are equipped with sensors and their induction will enhance operational capabilities in surveillance activities, a spokesman said.

    Navy chief Admiral Noman Bashir, who was the chief guest during the induction ceremony, said: "Cognisant of heightened surveillance measures at all times, the induction of Uqab-II UAVs will provide essential experience to Pakistan Navy and necessary impetus to utilise this particular segment of warfare to the best use of naval objectives."

    Because of their small size, ease of operation and low risk of loss, UAVs are regarded as force multipliers and are increasingly being used by combat forces worldwide, he said.
