ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan army has acquired latest drone technology to monitor China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) Sui gas pipeline, sensitive installations, bridges, dams and borders.
The Uqab, second drone, prepared by a private company Global Industrial & Defence Solutions (GIDS), Pakistan, has flight capacity of 15 hours; it can carry missile with weight of 1,000kg ammunition and can hit the target.
The Uqab can be flown in the limit of 250km with remote control, and its range can be minimised after connecting through satellite.
Through this technology, surveillance of whole world could be done while sitting in Pakistan. It has also some unique features, and expenditures incurred on its preparation are far less than the drones prepared by other countries.
The Uqab could be used to carry out scientific and climatic analysis besides surveillance programme and destroying enemy’s hideouts.
According to sources of the company, the drone would soon be presented in market for sale as 15, including some European countries, submitted application showing interest in purchase of Pakistani drone.

It looks like Seeker 400 but with a flat nose. So it is for surveillance missions? Any armed drones in Pakistan inventory?

BURAQ & laser guided BARQ, both are indigenously developed by NESCOM and are under use of Pak Arny since 2015.
While PAF build unarmed FALCO under licence at Kamra, since 2009.

It's unarmed indigenous UQAB and is already under use of Pak Navy for reconnaissance purposes, since 2011.
