    Amers write about the military intervention of India in Pakistan.
    For the United States, this has become the norm.
    Supply of UAVs for an attack from one country to another.
    Does the United States give the green light to such actions if they acquire UAVs?
    Is this what you need to be ???
    Still, I think this is nonsense zhurnalyug !!!

      "Supply ... for an attack from one country to another"- This is the most talented US policy, it has been flawlessly used for more than a century. They have earned so much money on this ... Mom, do not cry! This is exactly the complete idiocy of the politics of politicians in other countries of the world - and there is a net income to the treasury of their state, and double, they will receive money for the sale and the economies of other competing countries will crash. ”So rude, and on the other hand, it is subtle to act, it is necessary to have unparalleled talents. And most importantly: no one seems to notice this.

      Part of the territory of Kashmir, owned by India, is occupied by Pakistan. On the territory of Pakistan proper, India does not fight with anyone - it agrees with the occupation of its territory.

        I support. Comrade Khramov simply writes simply on a topic the meaning of which is unknown to him, lamenting about someone else's supposedly dementia shows his own.

    Absolute nonsense. One nuclear power will use drones against two other nuclear powers ??? With all due respect, only complete oligophrenics dare to do so.

      The United States (nuclear power) has long been using UAVs in Pakistan (nuclear power), and the Americans did not always use their UAVs against terrorists ...

        However, Pakistan did not carry out military operations with the United States, but with India it was completely fake.
        And again, SUSHA spoils Russia, because it was through the efforts of our diplomats that the situation between India and Pakistan ceased to be so tense.

          I think that Indians are not acquiring UAVs for Pakistan. and if by chance some UAV flies into Pakistan, then the Pakistanis will be afraid to shoot down, they say, if he is American ...

    I put a plus for the news. And the article itself is rather clumsy written. Maybe it’s not militants in Pakistan, but militants who came from Pakistan. Punjab has been a hot spot for many years

    And the Indians themselves are obviously "weak" to do unmanned aerial vehicles. Nearby, far from being a mighty Iran, in 1996, began their production. M. b. Did the Indians decide to follow the "Chinese path"? Order 100 pieces ..., pay for the first 50 received ... and then start your own "production"?

      "And it is obvious for the Indians themselves to make unmanned aerial vehicles" poorly "///

      It depends on which drone. Simple - and the circle of pioneers will make smile

      And such that with 500 kg of own weight took 500 kg of useful
      cargo (including missiles) and at the same time flew 40 hours at altitudes of up to 9 km ....
      Oh, perhaps.

    Sorry, a flaw in the highest echelons of power. It is advisable to create with us a strike submarine "Okhotnik". I have the honor.

    UAVs are such a good thing that they can be used not only in relation to Pakistan, but in general even within their own country, even in neighboring ones.
    India is rapidly arming itself. Who knows how much of the GDP they spend on re-equipping their armed forces?

    For sykonomlennoy money buy liposakatochny machine. laughing

    How dashing you are. They gave money, but they took the product away? And here are two questions
    1. Will they take the money?
    2. Will they give us a pick up for study?

    If the first question is questionable, then the second is definitely not. Why should they quarrel with those who supply them with equipment? She probably has an end-user certificate. So for the Indians "the game is not worth the candle"
