Indian Army Receives New Heron Drones From Israel

Meanwhile, to keep an eye on the Chinese activities near the Line of Actual Control (LAC), the Indian Army's surveillance capabilities received a major boost as Israel has delivered advanced Heron drones under the emergency procurement clause.

The Israel-manufactured Heron drones are capable of operating for nearly 45 hours at an altitude of up to 35,000 feet as tensions escalated with China's People’s Liberation Army. Long-endurance Heron TP drones were bought from Israel earlier in August for surveillance and reconnaissance missions, and as per the reports, the Indian Army planned to upgrade it with combatant missiles for precision strikes under Project Cheetah. The two nations have their troops deployed in forwarding areas for the second consecutive tough winter ahead as the standoff continues into the 19th month.
