Nestling between the two F-5TH Super Tigris fighters of the Royal Thai Air Force (RTAF) is an example of the RTAF U-1 unmanned air system. The Thai UAS was developed in-country, based on the RTAF’s own Tiger Shark II and the R V Connex Sky Scout vehicle, both of which were projects overseen by the Thai defense ministry’s Defence Technology Institute. Seventeen U-1 air vehicles have been built by R V Connex for the RTAF and now serve with 206 Squadron at Watthana Nakhon. In January 2019, the Royal Thai Navy announced its intention to acquire the type.
