Islamabad, April 20 (Xinhua) The Pakistan Air Force (PAF) Sunday inducted the unmanned aerial vehicle system (UAVs), developed by its engineers. The PAF said in a statement the long endurance of UAVs provide sustained support for more efficient and time-critical targeting, and other missions requiring greater persistence than what is provided by manned aircraft.

“In a future time frame, the Pakistan Air Force is looking forward to equipping these unmanned aerial vehicles with the most modern and lethal payloads, thereby enhancing their capability even further,” Air Chief Marshal Tanvir Mahmood Ahmed said.

The air force chief said, “Upgradation and modernization programme of Pakistan Air Force are successfully progressing at a rapid pace and induction of these air defence systems will make Pakistan Air Force ready to meet the challenges of tomorrow.”
