The Nigerian Air Force releases footage of the Wing Loong 2’s action parades against Boko Haram hideouts

Video footage of the Nigerian Air Force’s Wing Loong 2 attack aircraft, imported from China, carrying out airstrikes on a hideout of “Boko Haram” has been released.

The footage shows that the drone was equipped with Tianlei-2 air-to-surface missiles and AG300M medium-range air-to-surface missiles.

The acquisition of Wing Loong II is part of a broader effort by Nigeria to modernize its military capabilities and improve its defense infrastructure.

The Nigerian Air Force has taken delivery of at least five Wing Loong II combat drones from China in an undisclosed secret deal. This acquisition represents an important step forward for Nigeria’s military capabilities and enhances the country’s ability to counter insurgency and terrorism in the region.

In April, a Wing Loong-II with NAF registration number 145 was seen in the hangar of the 553rd Basic Services Group (BSG), formerly belonging to the 405th Helicopter Training Group (HCTG) at NAF Base, Enugu.

The Wing Loong-II aircraft are NAF 141, 142, 143, 144 and 145.

This is not the first time that the Nigerian Air Force has quietly used some type of drone. Two years ago, the Nigerian Air Force started operating the UAE-made ADCOM Yabhon Flash-20 Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV).

In the same period, the Nigerian Air Force unveiled a new combat drone procured from China to take its drone warfare capability to the next level.
