India could have used it in Ladakh if we had it to see Chinese intrusions and coordinate with foot patrols. This is how we end up falling behind....you don't have it you can't build operation use in practice. Give me a break with DRDO, this is not the time to depend on it for armed drones with that range. We need to be in this space and 3b is small amount to step into it and use it ASAP.India ain't using them against any of its neighbours. We'll see them in Naxal areas & in Naval exercises.
Thing is Indian MIC will never develop if we keep this attitude of buying costly toys like these. Instead we will end up giving hafta to both Russia & US with this attitude.
The day we have a fit & running MIC.. Pakistan front won't even matter. China wouldn't dare to look at our borders.
