  • Can we build anything on our own or we are just importing from China, America and Turkey?. Where is our own Pride of Made in Pakistan?.

    • research aur development pe pese lagtay h failures hotay h nuqsan hota h phr ja k pride of made in Pakistan hota h budget pe saray nazrein rakh k bethay hotay h us budget m yahi hota h shukr krain isi m filhal

    • yes exactly. Where is our own drone?. Why we are importing something when we can develop it locally. Our Army is getting lazier day by day. We have no pride left.

  • these drone are long range like 3500–5000 km range and a 30- to 40-hour endurance
    those are not to fight with india i think
    these kind of model usa use to regulate the canada – us border
    specially for smugglers
    i think Pakistani having these drone for Afghanistan border petrol
    with that range long we only need only 3 to 4 small air bases
    to cater the all border

  • recently it was reported NATO produced their own version of drone at an exorbitant price tag of 100 million dollars. Don’t know what Chinese drone will cost.
