The army is trialling US and Israeli-made military drone spy planes and is also about to test six similar experimental New Zealand-made aircraft.


The small pilotless aircraft – also known as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) – are used for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance flights. They commonly carry video, still and infrared cameras

Its good to see NZ developing its military, especially after they removed strike capabilities from the RNZAF, and I hope that army will find a good use for them. I reckon however, that its more likely that MAF will use them, or they'll just be used in conjenction with the P-3's for coastal patrol.

These are not "spy planes", they are reconn aircraft. There is no such thing as a spy plane.
