The Pakistani Army plans to acquire Predator XP drones, an export-approved version, from General Atomics Aeronautical Systems (GAAS).

Predator A or Predator XP type product drones are unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) known for launching successful strikes against high-profile militants.

A ten-aircraft Predator system, consisting of ground stations and software, would cost $400m with the price of one Predator ranging from $4m to $15m.

GAAS, the US-based company that makes Predators, said it had approval to sell the export-approved version of the UAV to countries other than the US, Nato members, Japan, Australia and New Zealand.

GAAS spokesperson Kimberly A Kasitz said the company had approached the US State Department for a licence to begin negotiations for such a sale with Pakistan and other Middle Eastern countries.
