Indian Air Force (IAF) is also set to upgrade its Heron, Medium Altitude Long Endurance (MALE) unmanned aerial system (UAS) under Project Cheetah with Israeli-made Nimrod, a long-range air-to-surface missile developed by Israel Aerospace Industries that provides standoff strike ability against a variety of point targets such as armored personnel carriers (APCs), ships, bunkers, personnel concentrations, and guerrillas.
Nimrod is a long-range semi-active laser-guided anti-tank guided missile (ATGM), that has a range of from 26km to 35km to a whooping 50km depending on the variant that might be procured by the IAF.
Nimrod missiles also might be included in the recently acquired Heron-Tp by private companies in India.
