    Burraq (Urdu: براق ‎) is an advanced unmanned combat aerial vehicle (UCAV) developed by a venture of PAF and the NESCOM, a civilian defence research and development organisation.[1] The name Burraq (Arabic:البُراق‎ al-Burāq "lightning") refers to a type of winged steed, described as a creature from the heavens which transported the Islamic prophet Muhammad - Isra and Mi'raj.

    In May 2009 the Burraq UCAV was reported to be undergoing flight testing and would be armed with a newlaser-guided ASM missiles and laser designator, also designed by NESCOM.[1]

    on 13th March 2015, Burraq was inducted officially in to service after demonstrating targeting in drill using laser guided missile with pinpoint accuracy and is all weather capable, missile used is also indigenously developed and termed Barq missile, chief of Army staff was also present at occasion and witnessed target practice. It bears resemblance to Chinese CH3 UAV in design.

    Pakistan successfully tests first indigenous drone: ISPR

    RAWALPINDI: Pakistan has successfully test fired an indigenously-developed armed drone Burraq and Barq laser guided missile, the ISPR announced on Friday.

    According to DG ISPR Asim Bajwa, Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Raheel Sharif witnessed the test fire, which had impressive accuracy and multiplies capability against terrorists.

    The army chief commended the engineers and scientists involved in the development for their untiring efforts to acquire state-of-the-art technology.

    According to Bajwa, General Raheel termed it “a great national achievement”, and added that it would add to the country’s existing anti-terror campaign.

    Pakistan Inducts Armed UAVs


    Nov. 25, 2013 - 03:31PM |

    By USMAN ANSARI

    ISLAMABAD — Pakistan today inducted into service two indigenous UAVs, one of which appears to be armed. The military has long sought the ability to strike targets more quickly after identification.
    A press release by the military’s Inter Service Public Relations (ISPR) media branch stated Pakistan had inducted its first fleet of “indigenously developed Strategic Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), namely Burraq and Shahpar UAV Systems” for the Army and the Air Force.

    The ceremony was attended by the outgoing Army chief, Gen. Ashfaq Parvez Kayani; and retired Lt. Gen. Khalid Ahmed Kidwai, director General Strategic Plans Division (SPD), which overseas all aspects of Pakistan’s national deterrent.

    Kayani was quoted as saying the UAVs would “substantially enhance” the military’s real time target acquisition capabilities.

    According to Mansoor Ahmed from Quaid-e-Azam University’s Department of Defence and Strategic Studies, who specializes in Pakistan’s national deterrent and delivery program, the presence of Kidwai does not mean the UAVs have any non-conventional application.

    “The [National Engineering and Scientific Commission ] comes under SPD, so he would be there,” he said.

    NESCOM is a civilian run research-and-development organization that has designed a number of defense systems for the Pakistani military, including the Babur cruise and Shaheen ballistic missiles.
    While the press release provided no other information, an accompanying photograph showed a model of a canard pusher UAV that appeared to be armed with two under-wing missiles.

    Shahpar is a tactical canard pusher UAV that was developed by the Advance Engineering and Research Organisation, which is part of the state-owned Global Industrial & Defence Solutions (GIDS) conglomerate.

    It was revealed to the public for the first time during IDEAS2012, Pakistan’s biannual defense exhibition, in November last year.

    It was claimed to be an autonomous UAV with an endurance of seven hours and which could relay data in real time out to a range of 250 kilometers.

    Observers have said the Burraq appears to be a Pakistani variant or development of the Chinese Rainbow CH-3 UCAV, but little else is known beyond speculation based on the CH-3’s specifications.

    Former Pakistan Air Force pilot Kaiser Tufail said additional information will be difficult to obtain for now because sources will be “wary about leaking what is considered confidential stuff.”

    Reports that Pakistan was developing an armed UAV named Burraq date back to 2009. Analyst Usman Shabbir of the Pakistan Military Consortium think tank said he first became aware of the existence of the Burraq some years ago when it was still in the design stages with NESCOM.

    The two may be related, but he believes Burraq is armed and Shahpar unarmed.

    “Shahpar can carry about a 50-kilogram payload and has around eight hours endurance. Burraq, based on CH-3 specs, would carry around a 100-kilogram payload and 12 hours endurance,” he said.

    The given payload of the CH-3 is a pair of AR-1 missiles, or a pair of FT-5 small diameter bombs.
    The ability of Pakistan to field an armed UAV has great benefits when faced with time-sensitive targets, he said.

    “It is important in a sense that it greatly cuts the gap from detection to shoot,” he said.
    Adding, “Earlier, once you detected something and wanted it taken out you had to pass on the imagery to higher ups, who had to approve and allocate resources like aircraft and by the time the aircraft got there the bad guys were long gone. Now detect, make decision, shoot and go home — all in same loop.”

    He does not believe there is any real significance in the systems being named for use with both the Army and the Air Force, however, as “both have been operating their own UAV squadrons for a while now.”

    “The Army has been using German EMT Luna X-2000 and the British [Meggitt] Banshee UAVs, while PAF as we know has a lot of faith in the Italian [Selex] Falco,” he added.

    The Luna was also ordered by the Pakistan Navy in June 2012.

    The Burraq is an advanced unmanned combat aerial vehicle (UCAV) developed by a venture of PAF (Pakistani Air Force) and the NESCOM, a civilian defence research and development organisation.

    Burraq UCAV can carry up to two laser-guided anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) serving a role much like American MQ-1 Predator UAV and AGM-114 Hellfire.

    Marshal Farhat Hussain ( Aeronautical Complex Chief Air ) said that the production of drones was very important for country defense, and this shows the professional capabilities of Pakistan Army.

    The Pakistan Navy also acquired rotorcraft drones from foreign sources while the Pakistan Army has been working to develop partnerships with China and has provided incentives to local manufacturers to continue developing advanced platforms within the country.

    The Pakistani UAV program is one indicator of the potential of this country in the defense areas. The Burraq UCAV is an example of new military technology that Pakistan can provide for national and international defense and security markets.

    I hope Pakistani Scientist make a missile equivalent to Hell Fire.

    The research work on Drones & Armed drones should not stop, Pak Scientist should take this to the next level.

    HJ 10
    Since Z-10 acquired by Pakistan will have this missile so, it will not be a headache to procure HJ 10, or some different version of HJ10
