surveillance along the tense border of China and Pakistan, the Indian Army is equipping its troops with hand-held drones. It has floated a request for proposal for acquiring 49 mini unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) last month, which the army feels will be a "game changer," like they have been for the allied forces in AfPak.


The drones will be propelled by electric motor and will thus be "literally noise-free" once they attain a height of 500 metres above ground level. "That will also help them avoid detection," an officer said. The ceiling for these hi-tech machines will be "1,000 metres above ground level," with a cruise speed of over 70kmph. "The system should be sturdy and robust, which should be capable of withstanding day-to-day handling and usage by soldiers under combat conditions," the army's proposal claims.

Army needed no less than a 500 to 1000 of these for securing both Pakistan and China border and these are meant to be made in India..

These small handheld UAVs have mear range of 15-20kms, Anyone who know geography of INDIA would know what just 49 are for..



And our Paid media glorifying this with words like game-changer which is i am sure not of our Army, I am sure every such procurement is glorified since the purchase of Bofors FH-77 ..
