Meet Arjun, Indian Army’s newest anti-drone flying soldier

Arjun, a kite that is the Army's newest anti-drone flying soldier, displayed his abilities during the India-US war exercise Yuddh Abhyas in Uttarakhand's Auli, India.

This kite, which is perched on an Indian soldier's palm, is quick to take off once it spots its target. It is an unmanned aerial aircraft that is hovering nearby. Arjun is one of the newest drone soldiers in the Indian Army.

Arjun's abilities were on display by the Indian troops during the Yuddh Abhyas India-US war drill in Auli, Uttarakhand.
