India’s First Indigenous Bomber UAV Unveiled In Bengaluru

India’s first indigenous bomber UAV aircraft- FWD-200B developed by Flying Wedge Defence was unveiled in Bengaluru on Friday. This is itself a milestone in the India’s defence and aerospace technology sector. The FWD 200B has been entirely developed in India that reduces India’s dependance on costly bomber unmanned aircraft from foreign countries. It is a medium altitude, long endurance unmanned combat aerial vehicle that has a total payload capacity of 100Kgs and can easily carry optical surveillance payloads, as well as precision air strike weapons. It has a max speed of 200 kts/370 kmph, it has an endurance capacity of 12-20 hours.

“For over 15 years, India’s pursuit of combat unmanned aircraft remained a distant dream. With the launch of the FWD-200B, India not only fulfills this dream but also joins the league of nations with advanced combat aircraft capabilities,” said Suhas Tejaskanda, Founder of Flying Wedge Defence & Aerospace.

“While the US Predator costs a staggering Rs 250 crores, our indigenous FWD-200B, built with state-of-the-art technology and manufactured in India, slashes the cost to a mere Rs 25 crores. This not only demonstrates our commitment to self-reliance but also positions India as a leader in cost-effective defence solutions”, he added.
