In an age of high geopolitical tension, conflicts breaking out and also sustaining itself, India does not want to be left behind. Thus drones, loitering munitions and surveillance equipments are the ones that the country is focusing on developing in large numbers but also in varieties.

“During the display this newly developed Loiter Munition was launched towards a predefined trajectory it went into a kamikaze mode to destroy the target. Nagastra 1( F&F) hit the target”, the defence officials confirmed.
