On the night of March 5, a HERON 1 drone operated by the German Armed Forces crashed east of Mazar-e-Sharif in Afghanistan.

According to previous knowledge, the drone crashed without being affected by a weapon. One speaks of a technical failure. This means that the Bundeswehr in Afghanistan only has one drone that is used there for reconnaissance purposes.

This considerably affects the reconnaissance capabilities of the Bundeswehr in the country on the Hindu Kush. The Bundeswehr had leased these drones from Israel.
