Pakistan has struggled to build up advanced targeting technology.

Pakistan has struggled to build up its advanced targeting technology arsenal. Its drones also have a more limited range than American drones as they operate based on radio waves, rather than satellites, according to the AP. 

China is offering to sell Pakistan armed drones, following Washington’s refusal to supply the weapons, the Associated Press reports.

The Chinese government's offer includes its own CH-3 armed drone, which can carry two laser-guided missiles or bombs, according to report. The CH-4, which is similar to a U.S. Reaper and can carry four laser-guided missiles, is also being offered.

Pakistan has demanded the U.S. provide it with armed drones but Washington has denied the requests, according to the article.
