Video: Pakistan's new winged weapon

Pakistan looks to the skies to better control its strategy against the Taliban.

    Pakistan has a new weapon to combat the Taliban - a domestically made, unmanned aircraft that is expected to replace the country's use of controversial US drones.
     
    With more than 50 air attacks in the last two years, hundreds of civilians have been killed and public attitude towards the government has been inflamed.
     
    The Pakistani military has said it has made gains on the Taliban this year with the aid of US drones, and that it has also been providing reliable information about targets which the US has not taken out.
     
    With greater control over its skies, the Pakistani military hopes that will change.
