Lebanon to Receive Raven

March 24, 2009

According to Naharnet one of the latest goodies that Lebanon will receive from the US is the unmanned Raven UAV.  The raven is small, only 38 inches in length and 4.5 pounds, but it is valuable for reconnaissance purposes.  When used in conjunction with ground patrols it can provide added vision for commanders.  The Raven is mounted with a camera and can fulfill the function of having an Apache helicoptor with its mounted camera down range.  Is this is an alternative to offering the Lebanese AH-1 Cobra attack helicopters?  While I’m certainly no expert, the Raven UAV and AH-1 Cobra seem to serve different functions.
