UAE Completes Predator Order

The UAE has received all of the unspecified number of unarmed General Atomics RQ- 1E Predator XP unmanned air vehicles ordered as part of a $200 million contract in February 2015, according to an announcement made at the IDEX defence exhibition in Abu Dhabi during February. Predator XP can be differentiated from previous versions by its winglets. Other countries in the Middle East are reportedly currently evaluating the system. David C Isby
