    The government has threatened to send copies of North Korean drones across the border to bamboozle the enemy if the North invades South Korean airspace with unmanned aerial vehicles again.
    There are already some mockups in storage here, which were produced in 2014 when some North Korean UAVs crashed near the demilitarized zone.
    Crashed North Korean drones are displayed at the Agency for Defense Development in Daejeon in this file photo from April 2014.
    "We're considering various ways to develop and produce stealth drones as early as possible," a government source said Sunday. "We already made copies of North Korean drones that were discovered after they shot images of Cheong Wa Dae in 2014 and are working out the best use for them."
    Right after the latest invasion of North Korean drones, President Yoon Suk-yeol stressed the need to respond proactively to such incursions and asked the military to come up with small and stealth drones ready within this year.
