Indian army develops indigenously-made armed quadcopter
Designed by two army soldiers and displayed at the Army Technology Seminar-2019 in New Delhi on 11 January, the mini quadcopter has already been successfully employed in "live" operations along the Line of Control (LoC) in the disputed northern region of Kashmir.
The quadcopter was initially developed as a day and night surveillance platform in 2015 by Gurpreet Singh and Amrik Singh of the IA's 21 Sikh Regiment, but has subsequently been modified to carry a 2 kg payload that can consist of ammunition, first-aid kits, improvised bombs, or up to three grenades.
The drone is important for Indian army because none of the defense services have armed drones.
