Ludhiana, May 10 (ANI): The Bhogal Hobby Tech Private Limited in Punjab's Ludhiana city claims to have manufactured spy planes after being approached by the army.

According to them, the UAV aircraft, named Tohi, can be used in conflict zones.

"Some representatives from the army contacted us saying that they had received some aero-models on which they had to train. They approached us after being referred by the National Cadet Corps. With this purpose, we established our company," said Manvir Bhogal of Bhogal Hobby Tech Private Limited.

The Tohi plane has a cylinder and a shaft, and is fuelled by methanol or petrol. It can fly for an hour with a liter of fuel.

"Till now, the biggest aero-model that we have manufactured has an engine capacity of 86 cc. But our main feature is the manufacturing of UAV models, which was a task assigned to us by the Indian army," added Bhogal.

UAV are strategic defence tools that greatly benefit the armed forces.

They have previously been used by United States of America to monitor the Tora Bora Mountains in Afghanistan and Iraq post 9/11. (ANI)
