Army purchased overpriced and unusable drone

28-06-2010

The Supreme Audit Office of the Czech Republic has reported that the army purchased an unsuitable military plane for more than 142% of its actual price in 2006. According to the report, an unmanned reconnaissance helicopter was ordered for the Afghanistan mission at a cost of 46 million before a different machine was purchased for 66 million. The acquired drone was then found to be unsuitable for the mission in question due to its short flying time and range. The government is to review the report on Monday.
