1st In-Service Crash Of Indian Nishant Drone

A Nishant UAV of the Indian Army crashed today at the Chandan Village in Rajasthan's Jaisalmer District -- the first service accident involving the indigenous surveillance platform. A test UAV platform crashed in around the same area a few years ago. A technical snag forced Army operators to attempt an emergency parachute assisted landing, but as these photographs show, things didn't work out, the Nishant sustained severe damage.
