    Pak indigenous drone tested in live combat with Taliban: media
    Published March 27, 2015
    SOURCE: PTI

    Pakistan’s indigenously-developed armed drone ‘Burraq’ has been tested in live combat against militants in the strategic Tirah Valley region of Khyber tribal district near Afghan border and killed senior commanders of the insurgents, according to a media report.

    The area in the volatile northwest tribal region has been the scene of fierce fighting between the Pakistani military and a potpourri of militants for nearly two weeks.

    The military now claims to have achieved ‘significant successes ‘in what a report in The Express Tribune says has “turned the tide” against the militants.

    Remotely-piloted aircraft ‘Burraq’ and laser-guided missile ‘Burq’ were tested on March 14, but much before the drone was publicly showcased it had been tested in live combat against militants in the Tirah Valley, the yesterday’s report said, quoting officials.

    “The officials would not say how many targets have been taken out with the help of ‘Burraq’ but they claimed that senior militant commanders, including those from Mangal Bagh’s Lashkar-e-Islam (LI) and Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), were killed in Pakistani drone strikes.

    “They have built bunkers in the mountains covered by a wall which initially made it difficult for us to target,” one security official said.

    “However, their movements were tracked and their hideouts destroyed with the help of laser-guided missiles,” he added.

    On March 18, a gathering of militants was targeted in a border village in Tirah and some reports said that TTP chief Mullah Fazlullah was killed which has not been confirmed so far.

    Pakistan Army said over 80 militants were killed and the forces have captured important hilltops.

    The Tirah operation turned out to be more difficult as three militant factions including LI, TTP and Jamaatul Ahrar put tough resistance.

    Pakistan has so far not said anything officially about use of drone against militants.

    US okays attack helicopters, hellfire missiles for Pakistan under $1 billion sale | Defenceradar News


    [​IMG]


    WASHINGTON - The US State Department has okayed Foreign Military Sale to Pakistan for AH-1Z Viper Attack Helicopters and AGM-114R Hellfire II Missiles as part of around one billion dollars deal.

    This proposed sale will contribute to the foreign policy and national security of the United States by helping to improve the security of a country vital to US foreign policy and national security goals in South Asia, the Defence Security Cooperation Agency said on Monday. The helicopters and weapon systems will provide Pakistan with military capabilities in support of its counterterrorism and counter-insurgency operations in South Asia, the defence agency noted. This proposed sale will provide Pakistan with a precision strike, enhanced survivability aircraft that it can operate at high-altitudes. By acquiring this capability, Pakistan will enhance its ability to conduct operations in North Waziristan Agency (NWA), the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA), and other remote and mountainous areas in all-weather, day-and-night environments. Pakistan will have no difficulty absorbing these helicopters into its armed forces.

    Islamabad had requested a possible sale of 15 AH-1Z Viper Attack Helicopters, 32 T-700 GE 401C Engines (30 installed and 2 spares), 1000 AGM-114 R Hellfire II Missiles in containers, 36 H-1 Technical Refresh Mission computers, 17 AN/AAQ-30 Target Sight Systems, 30 629F-23 Ultra High Frequency/Very High Frequency Communication Systems, 19 H-764 Embedded Global Positioning System/Inertial Navigation Systems, 32 Helmet Mounted Display/Optimised Top Owl, 17 APX-117A Identification Friend or Foe, 17 AN/AAR-47 Missile Warning Systems, 17 AN/ALE-47 Countermeasure Dispenser Sets, 18 AN/APR-39C(V)2 Radar Warning Receivers, 15 Joint Mission Planning Systems, and 17 M197 20mm Gun Systems.

    Also included are system integration and testing, software development and integration, aircraft ferry, support equipment, spare and repair parts, tools and test equipment, publications and technical documentation, personnel training and training equipment, US government and contractor engineering, technical, and logistics support services, and other related elements of logistics and program support. The total estimated cost is $952 million. The proposed sale of this equipment and support will not alter the basic military balance in the region. The principal contractors will be Bell Helicopter, Textron in Fort Worth, Texas; General Electric in Lynn, Massachusetts; The Boeing Company in Huntsville, Alabama; and Lockheed Martin in Bethesda, Maryland.

    Meanwhile, in a reference Islamabad’s close ties with major powers, The Wall Street Journal reported on Monday that the US defence companies are engaged in a three-way tussle with Russia and China to sell weapons to Pakistan, complicated by the need to avoid upsetting neighbor India and its even larger arms’ import market.

    You are grossly overestimating your say in US policy. They are a superpower, they care less what India has to say. You NEED Apaches and they are the only ones who can sell them. BTW we are getting 1000 Hellfire - II ATGMs, ask your armor to buck up ;)
