New Delhi: Earlier, there is a situation of tension in India and China regarding the attack in the Galwan Valley of Ladakh. Meanwhile, in the midst of tensions with China in eastern Ladakh, India is busy strengthening its surveillance capability. India is planning to order from Israel for heron drones and spike anti-tank guided missiles. Heron unmanned drones are already in the Indian Air Force. The Army's surveillance and target acquisition battery is being used by the Indian Army in the Ladakh region.
According to the same government sources, 'Heron UAVs need to be acquired to add these drones to the existing fleet to meet the fleet requirement of Indian Air. We are planning to order Israel to get these UAVs. Heron has been in service of all the three defense wings of India for many years and keeps an eye on inaccessible places from a height of more than 10 kilometers. This drone can also fly continuously for more than two days.'
The forces are also working towards inducting an armed version of the UAV, as well as the existing fleet, is being upgraded to the existing UAV under 'Project Cheetah' sponsored by the Indian Air Force. On the other hand, the army is planning to order for more spike anti-tank guided missiles and now it is to see how successful this scheme is.
