India signs deal with Israel to produce devastating unmanned military drones

India’s military is seeking to expand its use of drones for intelligence gathering, surveillance and reconnaissance. The state-funded Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) signed a memorandum of understanding with Israel’s Elbit System to jointly develop rotary military drones. HAL claimed deploying a rotary Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) will bring down the huge cost associated with operating and maintaining manned helicopters.
The Indian aviation giant said on Wednesday: “It will also benefit the Indian Armed Forces in deploying a UAV for a routine surveillance mission or operating in unsafe areas both during day and night, which otherwise would have to be carried out by manned helicopters.”
Indian defence ministry official Apurva Chandra is in charge of the acquisition.
