India’s first indigenous bomber UAV unveiled in Bengaluru


BENGALURU: Flying Wedge Defence and Aerospace Technologies, an Indian defence and aerospace company, Friday marked a milestone in Bengaluru by unveiling the FWD-200B, pegged to be the country’s first indigenous bomber unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV).

The FWD-200B is a medium-altitude, long-endurance (MALE) unmanned combat aerial vehicle designed and manufactured entirely in India.



With a payload capacity of 100 kgs, it can carry optical surveillance payloads as well as precision air-strike weapons, the firm said.

Addressing the unveiling ceremony in Bengaluru, Suhas Tejaskanda, founder, Flying Wedge Defence, said the FWD-200B fulfils India’s long-awaited dream of producing a combat UAV indigenously after years of failed attempts by agencies like the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO).

Doesn't look sleek or aerodynamic. My honest rating is 4 out of 10. Should be opening up for foreign labs to bid on this. Probably carrying a lot more weight than necessary.

This is a bomber UAV not a regular UAV. Need to carry heavy pay load 100 kg bombs and deliver in precision.,sleek design is secondary for bomber.




• Master Yoda • 10 hours ago

You should try to make as per your suggested specifications

good to see someone has deep understanding in india to comment under make in india you can take large cap loan based on your proposal you will get low interest approval and bingo go play..

Good timing do declare such news, but bit too late for BJP as it's still going to lose the election. Congratulations to the engineers and all the people involved in develo this bomber. Very proud moment for our country. However it is insane to politicise such achievements and especially giving credit to Modi.

Great job by Indian company! The US and EU arms industry dictate monopolistic prices and can deny India critical spares or weapons in the event of a war! Remember that during the Kargil war the US denied GPS access to India to fire GPS based locked-in and homing in missiles on Pakis on the mountain tops which resulted in manual assault by Indian soldiers climbing up from a position of disadvantage!!

Super power India first UAV bomber. What achievement! Both Ukraine and Russia should buy Indian drones now, rather than from China, Turkey and Iran.

Engines. Unitil India designs and builds its own super powerful defence and commercial aircraft, drone and helicopter engines, India can't be called self reliant.

Hearty Congratulations to FWD&A, Yejaskanda and the entire team responsible for the design, development, manufacture and testing of this UAV. Hopefully they will be awarded a contract at the earliest to enable manufacturing and induction into our forces. Way to go folks. Best Wishes for a highly successful venture.

welcome news, but comparison with Reaper is unfair.. Reaper is far advanced in all aspects.. this drone can best be compared with Predator which was a predecessor of Reaper!!

Is this a joke? Please tell me this is a joke!




Monte Cristo • Unknown • 15 hours ago

100kg payload and they are comparing it to predetor. Predator can carry 1500kg payload ... what a joke this company is comparing themselves to general dynamics

What makes you so intellectual this is begng wait and trust our boys they will exceed any foreigners made

The real bombers carry air to,ground missiles which are heavier than this UAV's dry weight. MQ-9 carries smaller air to ground missiles meant for littoral waters security as well as eliminating smaller targets like the drone strikes in Pakistan.
