India's Rustom-2 MALE UAS Takes Final Shape, 1st Flight Soon

If there was one thing that stood out for me at DefExpo 2014, it had to be the Rustom-2. The DRDO UAS has shaped up nicely, and here it is on display in its final configuration. A first flight, previously slated for this month, is now likely to take place anywhere in the April-August timeframe. Plenty of Israeli influence, obviously, with some serious 'I love radar' qualities. I'm truly glad they've done away with that awful blue & white paint they put on the bird when it was first unveiled.
