The German Defense Ministry has plans to purchase an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) developed by the Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), a series of local reports revealed. 

According to the German media reports, the Defense Ministry favored the Israeli-made model over its American competitor. 

The deal is estimated to be worth millions of dollars. 

The Germans claimed the reason they preferred the Israeli-made UAV was that it is more technology advanced than the US designed one.

Channel 10 reports Germany has been developing its own UAV with France and Italy and the acquisition from Israel is meant to be used by the Germany army until 2025.
