Posted by Dylan Malyasov on

Pakistan successfully test fires own indigenous developed armed drone Burraq.

Burraq is an advanced unmanned combat aerial vehicle (UCAV) developed by a venture of PAF and the NESCOM, a civilian defence research and development organisation. The name Burraq 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 new laser-guided ASM missiles and laser designator, also designed by NESCOM. The airframe is almost the same as that of Shahpar, which was influenced by CH-3.

As of 25 November 2013 the Burraq UCAV has been reported to be in service.
