Argentina is continuing to enhance its military presence by announcing its plan to develop two classes of military drones. While one model will be used for surveillance, the other type will serve Argentina’s defense purposes. The project is estimated to take about four and a half years to be fully completed at a cost of $238 million. The government seems to have a plan to help recoup some of the money needed to fund this project by exporting some of the drones to foreign nations. The timing of this announcement is interesting as it follows recent news that Argentina plans to purchase military aircraft from China. It’s odd that so much attention is being directed towards the military while so many scandals are unfolding in the country.
