US Predator drones coming to India?

| | | Share |

India has sought from the US high-tech multi-mission Predator drones for protecting its maritime assets, especially in the Indian Ocean. Sources said a letter of request (LoR) for purchase of an initial tranche of 22 maritime patrol Predator Guardian UAVs from US-based General Atomics was sent by New Delhi last week.

The Predator Guardian platform provides high-altitude wide-area long-endurance maritime ISR capability. This is part of New Delhi’s efforts to fast-track its goal to secure the country’s maritime assets in particular in the Indian Ocean and detect any untoward intrusion — like the one during the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack — on a real-time basis.
