India Loses Its Troop Scanning Heron UAV, Secretive Sensors To China Crash


India has lost a valuable troop scanning unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), along with its payload of sensors and intelligence systems, to a cross-border crash in Tibet, raising concerns that the wreckage may reveal some well-kept secrets to the Chinese Army.
