During a critical briefing on June 13th, Wiroj expressed concerns that the army's drone capability is falling behind in confronting modern-day threats in Thailand’s western border areas. Highlighting the urgency, he noted that while the army plans to procure an additional fleet of 10 drones for fiscal 2025, this number is insufficient to counteract current security threats

If only the scrapped the sub order...

It's classed as medium.

 

The RQ4 Global Hawk is big:

It looks small to me...the Global Hawk drone carries missiles almost the size of that Thai drone....I thought it was some kind of hobbyist drone.

If they are for observation only (Thailand would never attack its mates in Myanmar) the ordinary consumer drones work fine for patrolling the border. Perhaps infrared cameras for night patrols but for daytime, anything with a good battery.

The army are only interested in having toys to play with.

There is no comprehensive strategy in anything they do as highlighted by using 3 different types of drones, from 3 different countries increasing the costs of deployment, maintenance and upgrades.

 

No joined up thinking can come from Muppets who attend a Thai military academy.

And as recently reported charges recruits for pumping out the septic tank they use. Neanderthal at best.
