    Shiv don't you think our scientists should take a lesson or two in DESIGNING weapons & their platforms ?
    Rustom looks ugly compared to ..say the predator. I know its performance that counts in the battlefield but I believe a better designed weapon would also inspire a bit more confidence.

    A mean, ugly, angry look is in tune with an aggressive/destructive weapon system. So, what's the point trying to make it look sexy? Though, agreed that sex appeal also at times can be deceptive.

    Iam surprised no one in this forum pointed out that the RUSTOM UAV is using the complete airframe of the Vari-EZE (or one of its clones). This doesnt seem like a big achievement. Probably the avionics and software is whats special……

    The man to be really credited for this achievement is the late Professor Dr Rustom B. Damania who passed away in March 2001 while still working on this project. but for his tireless efforts on behalf of Indian avionics we would not have seen this day!

    This looks like a big radio controlled model airplane.

    There are many videos on youtube of people building bigger model airplanes than this in their spare time.
