Just a quick question that I was wondering about since the news of Pakistan reporting an air to air kill of one near Lahore. What kinds of drones does India operate and in what numbers. Also, does Pakistan also recon. drones?

India is technically capable of producing advanced drones, and they've been doing a lot of work with the worlds most experienced UAV maker-Israel.
Israeli components were found in the wreckage of the shot down UAV.
Not so sure about Pakistan.

I was especially curious because from what photos I've seen published of this recent shootdown, to me it looks like the seeker head and control fins from a sidewinder rather than what I would charachterize as a UAV. The Israeli electronics doesn't really surprise me, as those are probably some of the best available to them. Any pics of intact Indian drones?

Spacepope is right. The pictures he's referring to, shows the front IR sensor and fins of an AIM-9 Sidewinder that brought down the UAV. The picture caption wrongly states that it was a part of the UAV. The sidewinder probably cost more than the UAV did  Smile

While the Indian DRDO does produce a UAV called *Nishant*, the one that was bought down outside Lahore was of Israeli make. Israel is the second largest supplier of Defence Material for India and India is Israels biggest customer.
