    if this thing works, we’ll have a whole army of UAVs and not enough ships to operate them off!

    i must say i did not know about this program. very interesting indeed. in my opinion, this unmanned chetak can even be used in 14 Corps areas of operations for recceing zones N & NE of Leh. would be very useful. i have served with 666 siachen falcons as a Capt at leh where i flew cheetahs, and can tell you, there is a crunch for pilots. plus, the risk factor is also dealt with. is this programme being pursued by the army as well? so far i have not heard anything about it. anyway it sounds very good. we have a lot of chetaks. what about cheetah? with both pilots removed, it would have very meaningful payload capacity for small tactical missions. regards, LM.

    would be interesting to see how effective the autopilot that the israelis have promised is. would be a real sight watching a chetak uav land on, say, the the Beas or Tabar, in choppy waters! that would really be something!

    LM, all such programs are invariably pursued by the navy. the army etc are too busy sneering at local gear to pay much heed. tomorrow if the same uav is offered to the brass with a made in israel sticker, then see how they rush to buy it.

    to the anon above
    The problems with other projects being there. The Army is pursuing projects like Daksh ROV.
    That being said, Navy is of course always a step ahead than the other sister services in innovation and design as well as accpetance of local gear, the exceptions being the Naval ALH and Trishul missile. The problems with these were ofcourse serious enough not to accept.

    BTW Shiv, why is there no news on Daksh. It wasnt covered enough in Defexpo as well. Please give us more info on it.
