The Pakistan Navy signed a contract on the 27 June 2012 with EMT (Germany) to buy the LUNA UAV System for its shore surveillance units . A total of 8 airframes along with 2 ground control stations have been contracted for purchase. The contract was awarded after a launch of official tenders and technical scrutiny of around 8 UAV systems five of which were offered from China. Other contenders were Selex (Falco) and a company from Spain. In the end LUNA was selected for its price and because of its easy interoperability from small spaces. Pakistan Army is already using LUNA UAV for intel ops. The LUNA model contracted by the PN has an operational range of about 100kms.
