|This rug is the first to show three types of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV's), or drones, apparently used in Pakistan during the past few years. This rug features the drones in their relative sizes. The Global Surveyor is a jet powered drone used in surveilance and is the largest shown. The medium sized drones are Reaper drones and the smallest shown are Predator drones. |
