The Pakistani military has been offered two drone surveillance systems by the US Government to improve its reconnaissance capabilities.

US Under Secretary of Defense Michele Flournoy said the ScanEagle and Shadow 200 unmanned aerial vehicle systems had been offered to Pakistan.

The Shadow 200 is a tactical UAV system designed as ground manoeuvre commander’s primary day / night reconnaissance, surveillance, target acquisition and battle damage assessment system.

The ScanEagle can carry a payload of 6kg, and can cruise at an altitude of 5,000m.

Flournoy said the US would deliver whichever system the Pakistani Army needed to strengthen its intelligence in counter-insurgency efforts.

Pakistan had made an earlier request to the US for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and intelligence equipment to reinforce its counter-insurgency efforts.
