Pakistan is now repairing the old airstrip for its armed drones. Pakistan is continuously increasing its focus on drones. According to intelligence agency sources, Pakistan is repairing the airstrip that has been closed for four years in Rawalkot, which will have a runway ready for its armed UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles).
According to intelligence agency sources, Pakistan’s Rawlakot airstrip has been closed for four years and no civilian movement is even allowed here. It is opposite to Poonch area of India. Rawlakot has a concrete runway which is about 3000 feet long and 80 feet wide. This runway is perfect for UAV operations.
Agency sources say that in April itself, the GOC of the 12- Infantry Division of the Pakistan Army visited this area of Ravalakot and directed to make the Ravlakot airstrip operational. Pakistan will use it for Burak UAV. Burak UAV is an Armed UAV of Pakistan. Apart from the Pakistan Air Force, it is also used by the Pakistan Army. For the first time in 2015, Pakistan had conducted a military operation with this Armed UAV. In September 2015, the Pakistan Army’s agency ISPR claimed that for the first time, Burak UAVs were used to strike at the compound of terrorists in the Saval Valley. Sawal Valley is in North Waziristan. Burak UAV is Pakistan Made.
Pakistan has been increasing its focus on drones for a long time. Shortly before, the Pakistan Army started training on the Supercam S-250. It is an unmanned aerial vehicle which is considered one of the best UAVs from the technical and tactical point of view. These UAVs are used for surveillance. According to intelligence sources, only last month, Pakistan had planned a test firing of the missile from the Burak UAV. The Burak Laser Guided Missile was to be fired from the Barak UAV. The increasing use of drones has forced all countries to pay more attention to anti-drone systems. On June 27, two drones also attacked the Indian Air Force station in Jammu. Which is under investigation. The increasing use of drones has increased the concern of security agencies.
