Seabird Surveillance Aircraft Eyed For Yemeni Forces
The U.S. Navy could seek congressional approval to purchase 25 Australian Seabird Seeker surveillance aircraft for Yemen’s transitional government, a U.S. official tells Aviation Week.
The manned surveillance planes would supplement four RQ-11 Raven UAVs that Washington procured last year for Yemen, a key ally in the ongoing battle against Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) and a local affiliate that overtook large swaths of territory during Yemen’s Arab Spring-inspired uprisings in 2011.
