U.S. gives attack drones to South Korea
The U.S. began to deploy attack drones to South Korea to counter advances made by North Korea. The Gray Eagle Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) drones were sent as a part of a plan to add attack drones to every division in the U.S. Army.
“The UAS adds significant intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capability to U.S. Forces Korea and our ROK partners.” stated United States Forces Korea spokesman Christopher Bush.
The drones were sent a week after the U.S. deployed the THAAD system to South Korea, which can monitor activity in North Korea and China.
