Navy to commission UAVs squadron at Porbandar on Jan 17

"The squadron will comprise four units of two Israeli-made Searcher and Heron UAVs. It will help in strengthening our coastal surveillance in the Arabian Sea along the coast of Gujarat," a senior Navy official said.

This is the second squadron of UAVs to be deployed by the Navy along the long coastline of the country. A similar squadron was commissioned by Navy at its base in Kochi, a couple of years ago.

Indian Navy is amongst the few elite forces in the world to have deployed such squadrons for maritime surveillance.

Commissioning of Navy squadron in Porbandar assumes importance due to the town's proximity with Pakistan.
