By Thai Newsroom Reporters

THREE ISRAELI-MADE UNMANNED aerial vehicles were today (Sep.2) launched for deployment by the Thai air force.

Air force chief ACM Alongkorn Wannarot ceremonially launched the three Dominator XP UAVs, manufactured by Israel’s Aeronautics Defense Systems Co., at Wing 3 air base in Nakhon Sawan.

The medium-altitude/long-endurance UAVs were primarily designed for intelligence-gathering, surveillance and reconnaissance missions over the country’s borders, either over terrains or coastal areas.

Dominator XP which cost some 3.75 million dollars each will be initially deployed by a squadron of Wing 3 which has been relocated from Wattana Nakhon district of Sra Keo.

Wing 3 is located in the premises of Wing 4 in Takhli district of the upper central province where a squadron of Lockheed Martin F-16 Fighting Falcon jet fighters is currently deployed.
