India has been developing its own unmanned stealth bomber, officially designated as Indian Unmanned Strike Air Vehicle (IUSAV).
Two years after first reporting that India has been secretly working on its monumental future weapon, Headlines Today
has now exclusively accessed concept design images of what this robotic aircraft would look like.
Development of IUSAV would give India an entry to the exclusive club of countries engaged in building unmanned stealth bomber aircraft, which are intelligent, autonomous and built to kill.
This pilot-less machine is being designed to fly discreetly over enemy territory, pick out targets and unleash hell from above. The futuristic stealth bomber, which draws inspiration from similar projects in the United States and Europe, is being developed by a specialised Indian team at aerospace laboratories across the country, led by a secret core team in Bangalore.
Though the government has acknowledged its IUSAV project, it has been silent about its details as it is not only ambitious but also more controversial than anything that India has ever attempted before for national defence.
The scientists building the bomber insist that it is not an audacious pipe dream. They plan to begin flight tests in three years and hope to deliver a fully operational platform by 2020.
