I saw a saw a video of them firing artillery over a mountain at each other. Neither one could see each other. The shells were hitting empty fields 95% of the time.

They were shooting blind.

With these drones, they will have the ability to improve their aim against India’s Army significantly.

I remember from the video, that this is one of the most strategic locations any push into India. Drones may be the secret ingredent they need to go to war again.

Drones are not needed for counter-battery fire. I'd be surprised if the Pakis don't have a few of these already.

Besides, aren't they getting the bulk of their weapons from the Chinese?

They shoot “blind” on purpose.

There are plenty of options for either side to target the other with accuracy, if they wished to do so, ranging from spy satellites to high altitude aircraft.
