In India, they want to buy drones - analogues used to eliminate General Suleimani


Armed forces of India express their desire to acquire drones from the United States of America. The command says that we are talking about "drones similar to those with which the Iranian General Kassem Suleimani was eliminated." Recall that the IRGC General was killed by a drone strike in the Iraqi capital on January 3, 2020. At the same time, there is still no confirmed data about exactly which drone the Americans used when delivering that strike.


Indian information resources meanwhile write that it is a possible contract for the acquisition of the MQ-9 Reaper or the version of the Predator-B HALE (High Altitude Long Endurance).

The amount of the planned transaction is more than 3 billion dollars. With these funds, India plans to purchase three dozen drones from the United States.

Opposition forces in India believe that acquiring UAVs of at least $ 100 million per unit is too wasteful a contract with an “incredible price tag”. Supporters of the conclusion of the US deal argue that India will receive “funds for drones and maintenance under the approved program” with these funds.

According to media reports in India, drones will be used including for monitoring airspace over the Indian Ocean, as well as its waters.

From the report:

The drones should be easily synchronized with the P-8 Indian Navy, given the origin of both weapons systems.

    That they want to do all the weapons and equipment at home, and at the same time massively buy foreign weapons, without the right to license. For the Yankees in such a country, due to the lack of assembly quality of military equipment, only stone cores should sell, here the quality does not care, it's not
    hi-tech piece product. In general, it seems that the purchasers of weapons and equipment are deletants, just as the crow strides brilliantly, so the Hindu "purchasers" do not think about the price, or need, burn their hands. I want to buy more brilliant buzzers. ..

      Just drones are needed here and now. If you start to develop it yourself, it will turn out like with a Hunter - until they put it on the stream (after 20 years), then the Americans will already burn the enemy’s satellite beam.

      Hrenasenki, UAV is more expensive than F - 35? Or is it exclusive to the Indians?

    - At the same time, there is still no confirmed data on which particular drone the Americans used when delivering that strike.
    We do not know which, but the one that was used to eliminate General Suleimani. India, however.

    Here I look at this picture already takes envy. Russia doesn’t even have that close, which makes it sad and sad.
    We are even behind the Turks in terms of battle drones ...

    So the choice is small. This type of shock drones is also produced by Turkey, Iran, Israel, China (but it is excluded) ..

      Emirates

      Moreover, Algerians (the main foreign operator) save and use ersatz bombs.


      Well, they can give money to Leonardo - then they will strike the shock version of Falco forward 24 years. Their UAV with 350kg load flies already, and as a whole there is a reserve for increasing all the parameters, they now run into money.


      Well, or Hammerhead - a new version is being made for the emirates, almost 1000kg of load (now 550).

        It seems to me now that the United States, India, the Russian Federation, and Ukraine in the procurement of weapons pursue the goal of cutting the budget. A bunch of obscure OCDs, opening, closing, purchasing parts of equipment with dubious characteristics, and some things have long been out of date, or apart from a beautiful wrapper and a higher price, they are no different from previous models ...... Business and personal enrichment of individuals ..

    It is logical, because they are verified in practice.

      Why does everyone think that this is only a glider cost.

    Reimbursement of R&D expenses + profit of the manufacturer ... And the production cost, I think 10 times less

      Chinese little brothers will help, put Rainbow 4 or even 5 with discounts. And everyone is happy. They are used in Libya and Yemen, used in Iraq. In general, they also sniffed gunpowder.

    There was only one General Suleymani, no one else to hunt for.

      But in Pakistan there are many generals. Do not feed the Hindus with bread; give the neighbors a pin. Everyone knows in advance where these UAVs will graze.
