The latest Russian UAV “Okhotnik”: why it was created and why it is feared in the USA


Russia continues to work on the S-70 Okhotnik heavy unmanned aerial vehicle. A prototype domestic UAV has already passed several successful tests.


Recall that the S-70 “Hunter” is developed by the company “Sukhoi” as a heavy shock unmanned aerial vehicle or, more simply, an unmanned bomber. The Russian military department ordered work on the UAV back in 2012, and on November 23, 2018, the UAV began to move along the runway.

Information about the new UAV is far from complete. Open sources report that its weight is about 20 tons. Technologies for reducing radar visibility make it less vulnerable to enemy air defense equipment. The stealth allows the "Hunter" not only to carry out strike missions, but also to carry out reconnaissance functions, as well as engage in electronic warfare.

The first flight of the Hunter took place on August 3, 2019 and lasted about 20 minutes. A significant date was chosen - just during the official termination of the Treaty on the Elimination of Intermediate-Range and Shorter-Range Missiles between Russia and the United States. Naturally, the trials of the "Hunter" are actively reacted in the United States of America.

In January 2020, the American press published detailed assessments of the development of the new Russian drone. Thus, The National Interest magazine claims that the first flight of the “Hunter” in August 2019, Russia demonstrated to the United States the presence of such devices that are capable of carrying out unexpected attacks on enemy targets.

It turned out that in the US, most of all fear that high-precision nuclear bombs or cruise missiles can be mounted on a drone. This will make the S-70 really deadly. weapons. At the same time, foreign experts highlight certain shortcomings of the new Russian drone, which, in their opinion, can become a significant problem with its full operation.

Firstly, this is the autonomous operation of an unmanned aerial vehicle, secondly, a low combat load of no more than 2 tons, and thirdly, the “Hunter” visibility from the tail. By the way, this problem, according to American experts, is related by a drone to a fifth-generation Su-57 aircraft, the manufacturing technologies of which were also used in the design of the drone. The situation for the “Hunter” would have changed a flat nozzle, but so far this option is only on the layout.


It seems that the small combat load of the unmanned aerial vehicle will subsequently force the military to reconsider its purpose. Already now more and more often they have begun to call the “Hunter” not so much a percussion device as a drone intended for reconnaissance and electronic warfare. Penetrating into the airspace of the enemy, the S-70 will be able to interfere with missile and air defense systems and open the "path" to missiles.

The creation of the "Hunter" in any case will bring undoubted benefit to the Russian Armed Forces. After all, our country is also mastering the areas in which the USA still leads - it is the American armed forces that use the largest number of unmanned aerial vehicles, they pay special attention to the Pentagon defense programs.

The presence of a drone capable of conducting effective reconnaissance operations will greatly help our country solve numerous problems in local armed conflicts. For example, in the same Syria, there was a sharp shortage of such devices.

The question now is how quickly they can modify the UAV and transfer it to mass production. But much depends on whether the Russian government can find funds to finance the creation of the proper number of such unmanned aerial vehicles and how efficiently these funds will be spent.

    . The latest Russian UAV “Okhotnik”: why it was created and why it is feared in the USA

    For what, this is just ... it will be clear when the product is ready.
    But to argue that the Yankees are AFRAID OF THIS ??? Very loud voice, try to prove it somehow!

      It is not yet fully loaded, and it is already criticized by super experts. Right now, the Expedron Apache skirting nipple and the main minusers of this resource are coming out from under the Expedron Apache baseboard. A fan to help them ...

        In this aspect, everything is logical. They are afraid of what they cannot fight effectively, because there are no means of struggle.
        To be afraid that vigorous arguments can be delivered to them by other carriers, except for those already available ??? This can be, in principle, but then the carrier must be ... some formidable, or something. In general, it is hard to believe that it is the military Yankees who are afraid of our drone. I have a fairly high opinion of them. They, the adversary are serious, not weak.

          There may be another option. If we succeed in creating a successful drone or just a guided drone to work together with a fighter, but they will not succeed ... And this is quite likely ... The consequences will still be those. For them. You probably didn’t read what was in their press about the LCS / A program. The reason is simple: “For Russians, a cheap coastal-class trough hits missiles in Syria, makes the United States frigate, if not the destroyer, if possible ... And our launched troughs under the littoral battalion ship spike program, they are neither coastal nor combat, and each one is like the entire Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation "
          Another such scumbag is that the Pentagon should be really wary. And so have already been broken down more than once. Of the latter, a Patriot with hypersound, for example. They are already nervously reacting to other people's successes.

            In general, it is not in vain that they are eyeing the Israeli air defense technology. They can afford to buy everything they need.
            This, however comme il faut, but if necessary, they will go for it.
            We should rely only on our own strengths, our scientists and the military-industrial complex. In our situation, this is a justified, logical approach.

              You can buy it, only as if the price in green rubles did not become an obstacle.
              You can draw candy wrappers, but not infinitely. And those who are not hexagonal, our “friends” do not understand the real value of the drawn papers.
              Well, how will they require serious security? Gold, for example,
              Or the same planes on barter?
              They will not be able to draw. For their production, real resources must be spent.
              And air defense for covering objects in the states requires, well, a lot. It is still necessary to produce it, and then install, integrate, teach the calculations, arrange supply, provide exercises ...
              In short, start and end.
              You can’t do drawing here

                It seems that the Yankees are not worried about the fact that they cannot globally protect their territory, because globally no one threatens them.
                Russia, the only state that has the ability to wipe the whole continent to zero ... but without an appropriate response, this is not possible.
                Striped scattered their impact forces everywhere and around. It is not possible to neutralize everything at once.
                They need to cover up individual points of concentration of their troops in dangerous regions, and this is a completely different scale and money, respectively. They can afford, agree, outbid, enough greens.
                They have a preemptive strike strategy! Everyone walks under this threat; not everyone can protect themselves.
                Shield and sword, have striped sword in priority.

                    Maybe not everything is clear, knowledge, information is not enough, but serious analysts say that he could have succeeded if it had not been for a bickering in their ruling elite! You can cheer on the opponents of Trump, let all the attempts of their main be rammed. The main thing is that if someone did not win all at once to the end.

      Americans are very afraid of the "unpredictability" of any Russian weapon. There is a sufficient amount of evidence for this. And the means of electronic warfare, and air defense systems, and nuclear submarines, and much more. It is enough that, with all their huge military machine and “attached” mechanisms, they only crawl and puff near our borders ...

          Of course, to say that who didn’t have time is late, it’s not necessary .... simply the arrogance that they are ahead of the rest will play a “funny joke” with them. This is likely.

          I think this is an exaggeration, because they are only afraid of our strategic weapons. We have created a lot of operational - tactical weapons that surpassed the best world models, but the Americans did not chase it. For example, a vertical take-off plane, or our demining vehicles, and our tanks were the best - nevertheless, the Americans did not bother much with this.

      Yes, these borosopisy got their statements. Listen to them, because mattresses are panicky not only not yet finished products, but also one that has not yet been accepted into development.
      Heavy UAVs are already at war in mattresses; they know what these devices are capable of and how to deal with them. We still have to chase and chase mattresses in the UAV area. But we do not lose hope, we believe in our kulibins. If only our "Medvedev" found money for this business.

            As an option, but within the framework of the existing system it’s not realistic ... often an opinion is expressed that they can carry out yet another privatization! And this is not something completely impossible ... who knows what other ideas at the top can be born and implemented in the future. I do not want to guess, we'll see.

      I suppose that on this flying scale model, to justify the money called a drone, piloting and glider behavior of a new (for our little-studied) scheme of the future aircraft are being developed. This is evidenced by the exhaust in the form of a pipe. Therefore, it is not worth expecting joyful results in terms of the payload; in these works, I assume this, like the shape of the exhaust, is not yet important. There is no drone, no aircraft.

            Actually, the military is primarily interested in the capabilities of any equipment and weapons, and how our developers will achieve this, by and large, they don’t care - I know that for sure. So the point is not the glider, but the duration of its flight and 2 tons of reconnaissance equipment, which in modern conditions will make it possible to mark the means of optoelectronic, optical, radio and electronic reconnaissance and even put some kind of side-view radar plus communication means and management. So I don’t see a big difference in the purpose of the Tu-143 and what is being created now, but the fact that we have reached a higher level is pleasing to everyone.

    The latest Russian UAV “Okhotnik”: why it was created and why it is feared in the USA

    We need a hunter mainly for the Navy aviation. The lack of aircraft carriers and direct support for aircraft by ships is a critical weakness. Without tsu kr, it is impossible to launch enemy ships over the radio horizon. Thousands of kilometers in performance characteristics of missiles are useless. And such drones can provide this.

                This is the essence of the external target designation of RCC. The coordinates of the target are adjusted during the flight.

          But why the Palestinians nearly bombed a research center in Dimona was attacked by air.
          The Palestinian radical movement Hamas attempted to blow up an Israeli nuclear center located in Dimona. The attack was carried out using balloons that carried a load of explosives. According to information obtained from several sources at once, the balloon successfully traveled about 70 kilometers in the direction of the target and was not detected by Israeli air defense systems. The aircraft crashed near a strategic object and did not explode. Israeli bomb detonators say that detonation did not occur due to imperfect fuse design.https: //free-news.su/proisshestviya/42665-xamas-atakoval-yadernyj-centr-v-izraile

        I completely agree with you that you need to wait a while in evaluations. First of all, because with such a flight range, to unleash the combat potential, each drone will need a satellite channel of at least 1 Gb / s and an operator. How many drones are there and how many satellite traffic can they provide? The bandwidth issue of satellite constellation information for drones is a cornerstone.

          In fact, they can fly according to the program, without two-way exchange of information via satellites. It is technically possible to dump information in the VHF-microwave range not only to a satellite, but also to aircraft located at distances of hundreds to a thousand kilometers, or to a ship’s constellation.

            What you say is what it is. Perhaps you did not pay attention to my words "to reveal the combat potential." The issue of obtaining information at a real time is not an idle question. It is possible to transmit a signal to a repeater aircraft as well, but this is already: a different frequency range and other mass and dimensional characteristics of communication equipment, additional vulnerability during the execution of the knowledge base, and the use of additional l / s for the operation of the "automatic device".

      Why did you decide that 2 tons is the maximum load? For any combat vehicle there is a maximum take-off weight, but there is a normal one, i.e. you can load bombs to the maximum, but you will fly away not far, but you can take relatively little, strictly enough to carry out a typical task, and you can fly long and far.

    The situation for the "Hunter" would have changed a flat nozzle,

    A flat nozzle is not a panacea for UAVs in the sense of visibility, flight performance will immediately sag. So there is no sense in changing axisymmetric to flat.

      In general, a "flat nozzle" is a fetish for the layman. If you dig a little deeper, it turns out that comparable invisibility in infrared can be achieved by other means, for example, an obvious, but for some reason stubbornly unnoticed fact - the F-35 has a round nozzle.

        A flat nozzle significantly worsens the entire power plant of the aircraft, as does the tunnel air intake, and the gain is illusory.

    Everything new, well forgotten old, before the appearance of rocket weapons, the USSR had a plan for retaliatory strike against the USA, with the flight of bombers in one direction. After completing the strike, the crews were supposed to fly to Mexico and leave the plane there after running out of fuel.

    It seems that the small combat load of the unmanned aerial vehicle will subsequently force the military to reconsider its purpose.

    It is not clear why the author decided that the UAV "low combat load"if these parameters are laid down in the technical specifications at the R&D stage, and if the developers do not fulfill this, then the product simply will not be adopted. I think that initially 2 tons was laid because it would be an unmanned reconnaissance aircraft with the possibility of a long stay in flight. For drums would choose other parameters - I think so.

    I believe that Russia first of all needs a drone capable of "hanging" in a given area for 24 hours (Global Hawk - 36 hours!) And more. First the scout then the drummer. This is all passed by the Americans (successfully). With the current AL-31F engine, such "abilities" are in doubt. Alternatives to the engine, which allows you to stay in the air for a long time, I do not see. Yes, and the glider in the current stealth layout is not particularly conducive to this. It can be said that "work is underway", but this is how to say that we have almost defeated the decaying West.
    S-70 looks cool, no words, but it would be better if he was miserable in appearance, but could conduct reconnaissance without offensive weapons and transmit data to all types of troops. The developments of the United States and Israel (and already China) confirm that this is the most important thing in modern warfare. There will be intelligence data - there will be a shock operation. Without intelligence and data - the beautiful S-70 stealth is only one warrior and R&D in the field. I do not write to the rating so minus.

    ... For what was created ... But we do not need answers to this question! Let some surprise for some! After all, what happens if we immediately receive answers to all questions ?! The thinker will wither, logic will become stale, imagination will hang in a dusty attic! For example, I remember the magazine "Radio" ... What was the "super. Creative" magazine! What "geniuses" grazed freely on the spacious pages of the publication! And all this was in the days of the USSR! There was no "import-technical abundance" then! Every little thing needed to be invented and invented, how to do it at home or at work from the assortment that was available to Soviet workers! And what is tepericha? District obstructions of imports ... why invent, what for think? And now I hear talk that the Radio magazine is getting worse ... that it’s not the same! So what? Do we want our brains to go dull, the gyrus to tighten, the imagination on the porch? If not, then we say together: May there be more secrets! Let them finish building the upper floors of the vaults with "secret materials"! We ourselves will open and open everything on the pages of our beloved VO! We will expose everyone and explain to everyone! fellow

    Something I do not catch up .....
    Recall that the S-70 "Hunter" is developed by the company "Sukhoi" as heavy percussion an unmanned aerial vehicle or, more simply, an unmanned bomber.

    And right there
    Open sources report that its weight is about 20 tons

    and low combat load of no more than 2 tons

    With its own weight of 20 tons it is capable of lifting no more than 2 tons into the air? Either this is disa for our “partners” (90% probability) or we forgot how to build airplanes. No, of course, the above diagram of the aircraft does not allow hoping for a record carrying capacity, but to only 2 tons, it’s dubious ....

    Beautiful device. I am glad that we are moving forward and are not standing still. Is a flat or round nozzle worth focusing on? In my opinion, this is a profitable business. The Americans created a flat nozzle and laid it on a shelf. F-35 confirmation of this. It is better to concentrate on breakthrough options for using UAVs. Many options were suggested. Cut here and go forward. IMHO

    Is logical. Mattresses are not able to beat selectively, so if the device cannot fill up a couple of hundred hectares with cast-iron, it is not a bomber.

    Now drones are doing "all and sundry" including those countries that did not have experience in creating modern combat aircraft, i.e. touch, and the classic planes of these powers are imported. And sometimes an opinion is created that we are behind in the production of UAVs even from the so-called 3rd countries. But if you start to consider the real TTX of these multiple copies of "predators", "reapers", etc. , then it turns out that they have a range of 150-300 km max and then using vulnerable antennas the height of the Eiffel Tower.
    And all this with the capabilities of an average of 25-40 hours of flight without refueling and a speed of 500-600 km / h. The most important thing in my opinion in the combat use of UAVs is the ability to control with the help of a group of satellites, otherwise they are the same modernized models from the pioneer houses. I’m sure that our country will immediately jump to 2-3 place in terms of UAV combat potential if it takes care of their ultra-long-range use with the help of spacecraft, where we were leaders in the recent past.

    What to fear, he is in a single copy and not brought to mind. When it is launched into mass production, it’s more likely that the cancer on the mountain will whistle. And this is not an attempt to disgrace the Russian defense industry - this is unfortunately a reality. And to speculate on the subject of “if yes if” is the level of couch experts.
