    02 ways:

    1. Crane Recovery after the UAV lands in the water near the ship.

    2. Intermediate Device Recovery - predominantly using a net to 'intercept' the UAV in it's glide path and 'catching' it.

    The rail system indicates a catapult launch system here.

    It's RQ-21A of USN. They use cables to recover.

    Posted the comment as @Abingdonboy had put the picture of UAV with IN ship :D giving an impression of the same being related.

    The picture I posted was for representation purposes :p

    I spotted what looked like a rail launcher on the hanger deck of the Kolkata in the LR-SAM launch above and was wondering what it resembled.

    Kamorta to me looks more complete and stealthy design compared to P15 A&B class destroyer.

    I am still wondering why are we not able to sell it to other country, after Philippines rejection ?
