A Nation of Arms Peddlers

Like foreign policy driven by TotalElfFina, French UAV overflights (as many French are reasoning about many of the actions in the UNIFIL deployment) are to prove weapons to make them a better sell:

According to Israeli defense sources, the French initiative is also meant to prove the operational capabilities of its UAVs so they can compete against Israeli defense industries on the global UAV market.
What proves it for me is why they would even bother trying to use drones to track fighter sorties than you could with one or two ship mounted radars?The Fuse is Lit (No Pasaran!)
