KRUGER NATIONAL PARK, South Africa (Reuters) - South Africa has taken its war against rhino poaching to the skies by deploying a high-tech, low-speed reconnaissance aircraft to detect illegal hunters before they strike.

"This is a war. You cannot take a stick to a gunfight," Ivor Ichikowitz, executive chairman of Africa's largest privately held defense firm, Paramount, said on Tuesday. Paramount manufactured the small, specialized plane donated to the South Africa National Park Service.
