The Kazakh media reported that last week a SkyLark-1LEX unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) factory was inaugurated in the Central Asian country. The plant, which will also serve as a UAV service center, was established as part of Kazakhstan's aviation industry.

At a ceremony marking the opening of the plant, the Deputy Commander of the Ground Forces of the Kazakh Army, Major General Alexander Ashirov, said that the purpose of the plant was to increase the defense capabilities of the Kazakh Army.
