An unmanned combat aerial vehicle (UCAV), or an attack drone, usually carries aircraft ordnance such as missiles, bombs, and laser weapons. Earlier, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) were primarily used for surveillance and patrolling. With the growing need for operational requirements, UAVs were armed and converted into UCAVs. Broadly, UCAVs are used for surveillance, direction of artillery fire, gathering electronic intelligence (ELINT) information, lasing targets for fighter aircraft, and for post-strike damage assessment. While several nations operate unarmed UAVs, as of 2016, only the US, Turkey, Israel, Italy, Iran, China, India, and Pakistan had manufactured UCAVs.
