    Pakistan reportedly said on Wednesday an "Indian spy drone" was shot down by the army along the Line of Control in Pakistan-administered Kashmir. India denied the claim, saying no such drone crashed or was shot down.



    The Pakistani army claimed that the drone was being used for aerial photography and was "brought down for violation of Pakistan's territorial integrity".

    Pakistan's Dunya News quoted the Inter-Services Public Relations -- the military's media wing -- as saying that the drone was equipped with a camera and was taking photos. It was shot down in Bhimbher sector along the Line of Control.

    A spokesperson of the Indian Army said: "Some reports of a drone crash in Azad Kashmir are being referred to. No drone or UAV crash of the Indian Army has taken place."

    Dunya News said Pakistan has decided to summon the Indian high commissioner after the incident to register its protest.

    The reported shooting down of the drone took place nearly a week after the meeting between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif in Ufa, Russia, where the two leaders talked peace and anti-terrorism measures.

    The only quad-copter drone that Indian Army or the Indian Security Forces along LoC and IB like BSF operate is DRDO Netra featuring inverted rotors -

    And this is the one that crashed - No chance it is the same since it does not feature inverted rotors as evident -

    [​IMG]

    That seems to be a Chinese make - close resemblance to the one being operated by Pakistani Police itself -

    The Chinese made quad-copter DJI PHANTOM -

    that makes the problem... PA put eagle eyes on LOC but failed to understand what is happening behind them. the mini UAV of pakistani police was mistook as an Indian UAV and they shot it down. waste of bullet and a UAv that cost 40000 Pakistani rupee.

    I think I saw this type in a marriage procession taking videos/photos some two months back. The procession was long and the drone hovered over it from one end to the other (must be remote controlled)!!

    Confirmed - It was Chinese-made DJI Phantom 3 quad copter drone :coffee:

    Pakistan says it shot down Indian drone near LoC
    ISLAMABAD | BY KATHARINE HOURELD

    An Indian army soldier stands guard while patrolling near the Line of Control, a ceasefire line dividing Kashmir between India and Pakistan, in Poonch district August 7, 2013.

    The Pakistani military said it shot down an Indian spy drone on Wednesday in Kashmir, in a new sign of the decades-old tension between the nuclear-armed rivals in the disputed region.

    Industry experts said the small, unarmed model was sold commercially for aerial filming and would contain no secret military technology.

    "An Indian spy drone was shot down by Pakistani troops which intruded into Pakistan along (the Line of Control) near Bhimber today. The spy drone is used for aerial photography," a statement from the Pakistani military said.

    The Indian military was not available for comment.

    Bhimber is in Kashmir, the Himalayan region claimed by both Pakistan and India. The two sides regularly exchange fire along Kashmir's heavily-militarised Line of Control.

    A photo supplied by the Pakistani military appeared to show a Chinese-made DJI Phantom 3, said Huw Williams, the Unmanned Systems Editor at IHS Jane's International Defence Review.

    "Due to its limited operating range - about two km - if the Indian military is using the system it would most likely be for close reconnaissance or security work," Williams said.

    "Our Middle East editor believes that Islamic State are using similar systems."


    Pakistan is plagued by a Taliban insurgency that has killed hundreds of thousands of civilians. It has fought three wars against India since the two nations became separate in 1947.

    Since 2004, the United States has conducted 419 drone strikes in Pakistan, targeting suspected members of the Taliban and al Qaeda. The missiles have killed thousands of suspected militants and hundreds of civilians, according to media reports collated by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism.

    Pakistan often protests that the U.S. strikes are an infringement of its national sovereignty and has been pushing for its own lethal drones.

    In March, the Pakistani military announced it had test-fired its own drone equipped with a laser-guided missile. Analysts said the video showed a drone similar to models produced by Pakistan's close ally China.

    Not even three - it has a two kilometer range only.
