Attack UAV "Okhotnik" first tested as an interceptor

It became known about a new stage of testing of the Russian strike drone "Okhotnik", which is often designated by the program nomenclature - S-70. The tests were carried out at the Ashuluk interspecific test site in the Astrakhan region.


According to RIA Newsciting an unnamed source in the military-industrial complex, the heavy drone was first tested as an airborne interceptor. On board was an imitation of air-to-air guided missiles. The simulators were equipped with IR and radar seeker (seeker). The difference between the simulator and the usual aviation missile is only that it does not have a warhead.

The missiles can be placed in the inner compartments of the UAV.

Such tests make it possible to assess how effectively the communication of avionics (airborne electronic equipment) of the Hunter UAV with weapon guidance systems and the Su-57 fighter, which acts as the lead, is carried out.

It was noted that several flights of the "Hunter" were performed at Ashuluk.

Previously, the heavy attack UAV "Okhotnik" was tested in various formats, including the performance of a pair flight with the fifth generation fighter Su-57. These tests were found to be successful.

In fact, the "Okhotnik" can be both an autonomous unmanned system designed for reconnaissance and destruction of ground, surface and air targets, and an element of a strike aviation group with a fighter (for example, the Su-57) in the lead role.

          The task was set when developing new aircraft - 1 pilot.
          The second "pilot" is the computer. Or, as it is fashionable to say now, artificial intelligence.
          The pilot makes a decision based on computer data.
          No one is going to overload the pilot.

          In fact, a UAV in a twin is an additional weapon for the pilot.
          And additional data collection for the computer is possible.
          The pilot is not in control of the UAV.
          The pilot decides to use the weapon.

      I wonder how one pilot

      The onboard computer does everything for him. One of the test pilots once told about this. The pilot can only agree with the optimal solution to destroy the target or choose from several options. Moreover, for sure there is a tricky mode when the pilot does not need to interfere with the automatic target distribution and target designation system at all.

      Yes, it's hard to be alone.
      Even in the Ka-50, they considered it difficult to fly alone and engage in search / destruction - and made a two-seat Ka-52.
      Of course, since then the software has gone far ahead and significantly helps in control, but two pilots are much better than one ...

        The Ka-50 was created in Soviet times and the electronics are appropriate. Similarly, one can pose the question of how one pilot on a fighter plane can control an airplane and conduct an air battle.

        Piloting a helicopter at low and ultra-low altitudes is somewhat different than piloting an airplane several thousand meters. The helicopter pilot pays almost all his attention to piloting. There are simply no "hands" or "eyes" to search for and destroy a target.

It can be controlled from the ground in drone mode, and the pilot can be only the operator of a pack of Hunters planning BPs, a flying hangar for kamikaze drones, a repeater and a source of coordinates for the operational control of Gunships and other terrible things.

            In this version, the Su-57 should be manned request otherwise what is he leading for the slave "Hunter".
            On the other hand, the lead aircraft, which controls the space from six radar canvases, acts as the leader of several UAVs, conducting air combat and difficult maneuvering ... and at the same time ... single ...
            To me (and not only to me) it seems nonsense.

          Especially for the inattentive I repeat: this is the very case when the Su-57 acts as the "head" of the swarm: Russian in white !! fool
          And for those who are twice inattentive (and those who fly on the An-2), I add that the artificial intelligence of the swarm is not far off, and the Su-57 is the most acceptable place for it in the battle area.

            That's for it - fool .
            As for the rest, you didn't have to try.
            If you have "artificial intelligence", put it on "Hunter", make him a flight leader, equip explosives with weapons for self-defense and protection of your wards.
            Su-57 to cover the strike group "Hunters" - yes. yes
            Managing this group?
            Can .
            But.
            It will be difficult for a single aircraft to do this - the pilot is overloaded in terms of functionality. We need a second crew member - a navigator and operator. Here are just the Su-57 - SINGLE. It is difficult for him to realize his potential with one (!) Pilot even without the function of "leading".
            Therefore, do not load so many functions on an aircraft that does not yet exist in the army and its pilot. Or take care of its two-seater version.
            And decide on the concept of AI.

                There are no highly directional GPS antennas on aircraft and UAVs. Try to direct any antenna to 5-6 points at the same time when these points and the plane itself is constantly changing mutual angular coordinates. I don't know on ships ...
                And then if you are in the subject, you should know that GPS receivers are not divided into civilian and military, but differently wink

              Kamikaze drones, apart from the heavy harop type, usually have warheads in the region of two kg. Our hall is three kg. Polish where a replaceable warhead up to one and a half kg, but high-explosive fragmentation only 800 g he has. Five kg is not a little, if they guess to make a miniature KAB, then we have a ready-made mini bomber.

                One of the parameters for a 5th generation fighter is considered to be the supersonic cruise speed. What the F-35 does not have, but this does not prevent the United States from considering it a 5th generation fighter.

                  How long will the F-35 fly in afterburner? I read it for about 20-30 seconds.

                  I don't know, and I doubt that 20-30 seconds is true.
                  One of the parameters for a 5th generation fighter is considered to be the supersonic cruise speed. What the F-35 does not have, but this does not prevent the United States from considering it a 5th generation fighter.

                  Well, I say, "horses, people are mixed in a heap." Why are you talking about who is supersonic and who is subsonic switched to the requirements for the fifth generation? Supersonic aircraft were actually still of the second generation, if I'm not confusing anything. Starting from MiG-17.

                  A stealth UAV with air-to-air missiles is a formidable force.

                  And nevertheless, a fighter from it is most likely so to itself, and the interceptor is most likely not at all, because for a classic interceptor one of the main parameters is speed.

                  Here is a flying arsenal of constant readiness and long patrols, yes, it will be useful.

                    This UAV will not need to catch up with anyone, it will just need to enter the desired area at a firing distance and launch a missile at a target that is seen by either a Su-57 or another fighter or ground-based radar.

                    And for interception, we have Su-30/35/57 and MiG-29/31.

                        The target will not go away on any supersonic, since the speed of the explosive missile is 4 times faster.

                        And you can see the target at a great distance, only it is not always possible to reach it and is often fraught with the risk of losing your fighter, the same Su-35 can see an F-16 fighter at a distance of 400 km, but it can only hit it from 110 km ( this is in the best case), there are of course long-range missiles of the R-37M type, only from such a distance it is difficult to shoot down a fighter with them, simply because it can detect a launch and has a lot of time to get out of the affected area.

                        And the UAV can be sent closer to the target without the risk of losing people and attack it from a closer distance, while simultaneously conducting reconnaissance of air defense systems in the area.

                        In general, Russia needs an inconspicuous unobtrusive UAV.

            1. There is a mass-dimensional simulator of the product. This is a blank under the plane or on a holder under the fuselage. Usually hung to determine the parameters of the flow of the incoming air around it.

            3. It is very expensive and requires a lot of support for practical shooting with a product to destroy the VC. In this case, the parameters registration functions are carried out to the flying laboratory (LL). Telemetry from the rocket avionics is broadcast on the LL. The rocket dies. There remain parameters for decryption and conclusions.
            Therefore, the incorrect use of the term "imitator" misled our esteemed colleagues.
            Generally, the "simulator" is more used for targets, on which weapons are worked out.

          By the way, most missiles are not programmed to hit the plane, but to be triggered at some distance from the target. So the probability of defeat is higher. For example, the domestic "Needle" aims at the engine nozzle, but a few meters before hitting it turns aside and flies a little forward, closer to the middle part of the aircraft. There are more critical components, there is the cockpit.

      This is how fast he should have as an interceptor, intrigued. what

      It depends on whom and how to intercept. Against helicopters and other UAVs, 800 km / h will be enough. Especially if you use it from a position of watch in the air. It is difficult for a person to withstand 5-7 hours of sitting in the cockpit of a flying aircraft, and the drone can hang until there is enough fuel and after returning to refueling it can fly out again - the autopilot does not get tired, and the ground operator can be changed, their preparation is orders of magnitude cheaper than training pilot.
      In one of the sources, they write about the range of 3500 km, therefore, the range is about 7000 km, which at cruising speed already gives a flight duration of> 8 hours, and in the longest duration mode, another hour or two can be added.

          In principle, yes, I forgot about the A-10, as well as about all sorts of turboprop attack aircraft of the "toucan" type. A KR is also a UAV.
          And, besides, air defense systems generally stand still, but shoot down. If the target is detected in advance, then 900 km / h is enough to reach the launch line of the rocket in the front hemisphere or to the side. Of course, for this a "chain" from the C-70s is desirable in order to be in time at any possible breakout point (or whatever it is called).

              The most expensive component of the Hunter was the glider - it accounts for 45% of the total cost, which is almost 600 million rubles. Another 240 million rubles is the cost of the jet engine.

      Not big. the article shows that the drone acts as a platform for weapons intended for interception .. That is, it is not tested as a classic interceptor. When it is necessary to arrive at the desired area on an afterburner alarm and intercept a given target.
      But the combination of the supersonic leading Su-57 and the subsonic UAV is rather controversial. Unless just for working off. Because, if necessary, the UAV will not be able to move at the same speed as Drying.
      In terms of speed and situational awareness, it is generally better in conjunction with the A-50 or A-100. And even several Hunters for one AWACS. At the same time, there will be enough operators for everyone.

    I remember someone on this website wrote that the Hunter would never become an interceptor / fighter, but would simply be an unmanned bomber. Nevertheless, such a possibility was added. Interestingly, with such a load (with air-to-air missiles), can the Hunter be considered a "loyal wingman" or not?

        The interceptor must detect and engage air targets in the absence of visual contact, using radar and Air-to-Air missiles. This is on the hunter, therefore there is a possibility of using it as an interceptor, and the title speaks for itself

        Attack UAV "Okhotnik" first tested as an interceptor
        Enlighten me if I forgot something, and something else is needed for the interceptor. Well, the Hunter has already been used as an additional radar for the Su57.
        The unmanned aerial vehicle made a flight in an automated mode, the interaction between the "Okhotnik" and the leader aircraft was practiced to expand the fighter's radar field and target designation for the use of long-range aircraft weapons without the Su-57 entering the zone of conditional air defense counteraction.

          The "flying wing" scheme does not allow to gain even about sound speed, 1000 km / h is the ceiling. The maneuverability of this scheme is extremely mediocre.
          Air-to-air missiles and radars are armed with both the MQ-9 and the super toucan and the A10. This does not make them fighters, let alone interceptors.

            The interceptor needs speed to quickly exit towards the intruder, but the drone is already always in position.
            The interceptor does not need maneuverability at all. He should not enter into air combat. He must at the right moment be on the path of the intruder, detect him and launch a rocket towards him.

            And Supertukano, by the way, is regularly used precisely as interceptors.

            The interceptor does not need high maneuverability, the same moment 31 has high speed but lacks good maneuverability (he does not need it), and high speed helps to quickly get to the desired area, and maybe a high initial speed increases the missile's range, but still for the interceptor more important than missiles and radar.

            Why then is the F35 called a fighter? Poor maneuverability, lower speed than su57
            (F35B is generally forbidden to go to supersonic), but it is still called a fighter. He has a different concept, the first to notice - the first to destroy. Of course, even some 4th generation aircraft will defeat the F35 in close combat, here it is hopeless, but in long-range combat it has at least parity, if not superiority. If we compare the capabilities of the hunter and the tasks of the fighter of the F35 concept, then the hunter is quite good in this regard, unobtrusive, well armed, and the flying wing allows you to take more useful payload and reduces the RCS.
            He was the first to find → the first to shoot → the first to shoot down, there is a radar and missiles for this, and the speed, as in the case of the F35, does not play such an important role.

            Obviously, the Hunter is weaker than the moment31 as an interceptor and no one will replace them with it, but at least the c70 is capable of filling the gap in the defense. If it flies in tandem with a drying, then he is able to help the leader with the destruction / detection of a target at long distances. And of course this is primarily a stealthy bomber. Versatility is a useful thing.

              F35 shock IB, not to gain air superiority as an interceptor it was never positioned. The ban on going to supersonic was lifted a long time ago, it was introduced during trial operation. I agree with the tactics.

              We need a massive, relatively cheap, multifunctional winged aircraft for the Su-30/34/35/57. Like this:
              In 2014, the Sukhoi Design Bureau announced the Zond-1 UAV project and its version of the Zond-2 early-range radar detection (AWACS) HALE class with a wingspan of 35 meters, a flight height of up to 16 kilometers and a flight duration of up to 24 hours. Two AI-222-25 turbojet engines (TRD), used on the Yak-130 training aircraft, were supposed to be used as engines.


              On the basis of the Probe and make various modifications (electronic warfare, repeater, strike, fighter, reconnaissance, etc.) Instead, they make an expensive, complex, narrow UAV. In the US Air Force, according to the "flying wing" scheme, only the B-2 strategists and in the future B-21 remained. All UAV projects with this scheme in the US Air Force and Navy ended with a refusal to enter service or the choice of a UAV according to the classical scheme. The only thing that is from the UAV is a couple of dozen RQ-170 operated by the command of special operations.
              If the S-70 will use a radar, it will glow like a tree, nothing will remain from its low ESR, an external illumination is needed. From whom? Leading information security? So the slave's task is to protect the master. So it must be an emitter, a very expensive emitter. The “flying wing” scheme is many times more expensive than the normal one, even in stealth design.
              A striking example is the competition for MQ-25. When tested and ready for mass production, the X-47B lost out to the Boeing paper project. The creation, testing, and fine-tuning of the UAV according to the normal scheme turned out to be cheaper than just the production according to the flying wing scheme.

              The usual dough is being cut, instead of simple, logical, cheap solutions, a wunderwaffe for parades is being created.

                  Harsh reality. Why do you think so few planes follow this scheme?
                  The most expensive component of the Hunter was the glider - it accounts for 45% of the total cost, which is almost 600 million rubles.

                  600 million is the entire Yak-130 or half of the MiG-29. With glider, engines, avionics, etc.

                    I don't think i I know... Because the LC has mediocre VPH, some directional instability and increased cruising resistance due to specific profiles. This all belonged to the pre-EDSU era. Most of these problems have now been overcome.
                    But if You thought , you would have noticed long ago that the LK airframe is structurally simpler than the airframe of a classic aircraft - there is no fuselage and its interfaces with the wing, there is no tail. Congratulations Eagle Eye, the prison didn't have a fourth wall. :)

                The US Navy, in principle, postponed the creation of an attack drone, because of this, the finished attack X-47B went to the museum. The MQ25 is not supplied as an attack drone, but as an unmanned tanker, and these are very different tasks. For large attack drones, a flying wing is preferable, due to the peculiarities of this scheme, less engine power is required to maintain cruising speed, fuel is saved, the radius increases + the already mentioned stealth. It is not only in the United States and the Russian Federation that made such a decision, UAVs with a flying wing are being developed by Dassault, BAE Systems, Avic (China) and the already mentioned Boeing, judging by Wikipedia, also continues to work on its Phantom Ray.

            Indeed, the flying wing scheme is not compatible with supersonic and good maneuverability. Of the vehicles you named, only the ripper is unmanned, but the Hunter is twice as fast! You have given a list of three aircraft, each of which will lose to the Hunter in all possible parameters, except for the warthog's combat load, but he has no low visibility and will have to risk the pilot. So for the tasks of clearing the glade from bayraktar-like ones, the Hunter can become an ideal fighter. With his speed and combat load, he is like a Tyrannosaurus, where Bayraktars are slow and vulnerable grazing.

            And then one su-57 can be added to the heels of the Hunters. And the tactics of combat with American groups (F-22 F-35 AWACS) are changing a lot.

    All the same, it is not clear what was tested. One side:
    a heavy drone was first tested as an air interceptor
    , that is, it turns out that he did everything himself, and sought targets and controlled missiles, on the other hand:
    Such tests make it possible to assess how effectively the communication of avionics (airborne electronic equipment) of the Hunter UAV with weapon guidance systems and the Su-57 fighter, which acts as the lead, is carried out.
    it turns out that there was also a fighter, and the drone was, as it were, a "slave", and did everything on someone else's orders, but there was not a word about the flight of the Su-57 during this test.

      Here's some more information:
      Flight tests of the S-70 "Okhotnik" unmanned aerial vehicle have begun as a fighter-interceptor. The device has performed several successful flights with simulators of air-to-air missiles to assess the interface of its onboard electronic systems with ammunition guidance heads.
      that is, the flight can be considered "about nothing", well, we checked the interaction and checked, there was no "interception". Further, a little more specifics:
      If initially it was stated that the "Hunter" would be used for strikes on ground and surface targets, now its capabilities have been expanded. It becomes the world's first unmanned fighter-interceptor. For now, all information about the air situation will be received by the pilot of the Su-57, who will decide which target to attack with which missiles, after which he will transmit the command to the drone.
      if we leave aside about the "first in the world", it turns out that this is a "driven" system, with all the ensuing consequences. It is true that the clarification about "So far all information about the air situation will be received by the pilot of the Su-57" is not clear, and then what, he himself will be able, and with the help of what systems? And when will this come later, if we take into account how long it takes to develop a radar for the T-50?

    I'm afraid the hunter will pull in the role of a fighter a maximum of a "pylon for missiles" and its survivability given the huge engine nozzle sticking out openly behind is small.
    But in tandem with the Su-57, it would be possible to create different versions of this carrier, such as radar (other wave frequencies than the leading Su) and a banal missile carrier. The radar can fly as far ahead as possible and see farther than the Su-57 and detect targets earlier. But the hunter clearly cannot handle interception missions without the Su-57.
