Wow it was tested just few days ago and already put into combat? Either that's an impressive speed of induction and stuff or this is just for marketing.

So you don't know about Burraq induction right ? It was unofficially inducted in 2013. It was shown to public this month officially. Burraq is been in our inventory since last two years.

Also sorry for not posting link but there was a rumor about year ago of a possible drone strike which US not taking credit at that point some member`s as well as print media published about indigenous system but no word .Must be Burraq and if you carefully look the filmized test all technician were very relaxed part from general putting hand on the shoulder of operator he looked confused .Any way great development and I must say yes truly National pride ,Imagine sending 2-3 Burraq every time in the air hitting target .Next step should be incorporating aerial fueling and long endurance motor with higher speed

Yet another propaganda by the Army. In fact, the army has been bogged down in FATA.

A few months from now and we will see peace deals being signed.

I think we should have named it something else instead of Burraq? Something like Taliban-Kush? Maybe for war against TTP at least? :D
I hope the soldiers come with a better name. they are very creative.
employing drones frees up our gunship helicopters that can be used against specific targets.

deploying drones is better, cost effective and saves lives of our pilots. loosing drones due to malfunction or hostile wont be a big deal than loosing a helicopter.

F the pin point accuracy, just destroy everything that moves among the TTP and around it, they are all collaborators.
the Tribesmen who dont want anything to do with TTP have already left the area and don't live in the ridges and caves.

Exactly what I feel, anyone who cared about Pakistan and has nothing to do with TTP, has already left the area long ago. Those who are still there are either part of TTP, or their collaborators, or are just plain stupid. We should bomb the sh!t out of them without caring about civilian casualties in those areas. We've already have given them enough warnings or time to leave those areas.
