They will of course not be used to kill the poachers but will serve to reveal them. There are mainly two scenarios where aircraft equipped with the appropriate technology can be used in Central Africa, Airplanes can fly over the rainforest to detect smoke from fires from poached camps, or even a temperature gradient of the fire itself. It all depends on the performance of the available technology. In the open areas of Savannah and Sahel, the requirements on the devices are even lower. It is enough for a drone to reveal the presence of people, vehicles, horses or camels used by the poachers. The real-time location of suspicious person will allow for rapid and targeted intervention of the anti-poacher patrols leading to possible poacher arrest.
