North Korea attempts to arm target drones

North Korea is trying to develop unmanned aircraft by studying U.S. target drones imported from a Middle East nation believed to be Syria, reports Agence France-Presse. Target drones are used for testing missiles and training anti-aircraft crews.

North Korea’s unmanned aircraft under development are based on Raytheon’s MQM-107D Streaker target drones used by the U.S. Army, the story states.

The Asian nation is believed to have conducted several tests to arm the imported target drones by attaching high explosives to them, the story said.
