The Indian Army will deploy new and advanced remote controlled weaponry along the Line of Control once they are tested.

“At the moment, they (new and modern weapons) are in the nascent stage… There are various upgradation and whether you call them remotely controlled (guns) or you can say up gradation of various technologies, they are in the nascent stage,” a senior Army commander said Thursday.

“We are trying them and if they are successful we will deploy them,” General officer commanding of the 16 corps of the army Lt Gen RR Nimbhorkar said during a function in Akhnoor.

“See, on the LoC, we have to be always evolving. There is no one methodology and equipments we put on the LoC. (Whenever) We find it needs to be changed, (we change it). We do innovation and that is the ongoing process,” Lt Gen Nimbhorkar said.

He was replying to a question about the Army’s plan to deploy remote-controlled guns on the LoC to check infiltration from the Pakistani side.
