L' appetito degli Indiani per gli armamenti diventa, giorno dopo giorno, sempre più irrefrenabile .....
Ora hanno messo gli occhi sull' Avenger ... la versione a getto del Predator ..... un velivolo che non è neppure stato adottato dagli USA ..... salvo, forse, dalla CIA .....

India’s likely accession to the Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR) next month may clear the way for acquisition of armed Predator C jet-powered UAVs made by California-based General Atomics Aeronautical Systems Inc (GA-ASI).
The country first expressed interest in the drone, also named Avenger by California-based GA-ASI, last September.
India has also made inquiries about the Predator XP, but this export version is licensed only for surveillance.
“MTCR was the first step. Now things can be discussed. The U.S. Foreign Military Sales process is lengthy and it has to be also cleared by the U.S. Congress,” an Indian defense ministry official told AIN.
