India - Israel Began Negotiations 19 October, 2016

India, having joined the Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR) in June, is one step closer to its Heron TP unmanned air vehicle acquisition. The Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR) is a voluntary partnership among 35 countries to prevent the proliferation of missile and unmanned aerial vehicle technology capable of carrying above 500 kg payload for more than 300 km. Indian Air Force’s plan to purchase Israel Aerospace Industries’ Heron TP had been suspended for a while, however the negotiations restarted following India’s participation to MTCR. Heron TP has a 40 hour endurance and a 5,300 kg max take-off weight.
