Military Review

Abroad, they were skeptical about the capabilities of the UAV "Okhotnik" as an interceptor

72

Attempts are being made in the foreign press to evaluate the Russian heavy attack drone "Okhotnik" in the interceptor format. Recall that the other day "Voennoye Obozreniye" reported on the tests of the "Okhotnik" UAV in exactly this format - with an imitation of air-to-air missiles in the sky over the Astrakhan region.


Particular attention was paid to the new tests of the Russian attack UAVs in the countries of East Asia, including Vietnam. So, the Vietnamese press writes that so far no country in the world has been able to use an attack drone as an interceptor aviation techniques.

“To what extent is this possible in the case of the Russian Okhotnik? military observers in Vietnam are asking.

To describe the most likely problems, the speed parameters of fighter-interceptors are given as an example. So, the MiG-31BM, which is in service with the Russian Aerospace Forces, can reach speeds of more than 2,5 thousand km / h.

Vietnamese press:

If Russia has not created the latest engine for UAVs, then it is impossible to make a heavy shock drone move at comparable speeds.

Skepticism is also expressed abroad regarding the Hunter's ability to maneuver at high speeds. In the case of fully automatic control, super-powerful computing capabilities of the on-board computer are needed, and when controlling a drone by an operator, ultra-high-speed data exchange channels are required, which allow intensive maneuvering of the aircraft.

Judging by these statements, abroad they are trying to view the Okhotnik UAV as a classic interceptor. But after all, in the Russian Aerospace Forces, no one said what exactly the drone would intercept if necessary. It is practically pointless to use it in the current conditions to intercept fighters. But for escorting and intercepting, for example, reconnaissance UAVs, which are increasingly appearing near the borders of the Russian Federation, including over the Black Sea, it is quite possible. It is important to correlate characteristics in terms of altitude and the ability to attack from different echelons with air-to-air missiles.

          It's stupid to launch a Hunter into a maneuverable battle with an F-16. But who's stopping you from shooting the Bytractors with Nagars? Yes, even helicopters?

            Where does such pessimism come from?
            The ace pilot lost to artificial intelligence and was shot down in a virtual air battle
            Lee is an ace pilot who graduated from the School of Combat Use of Fighters. His skills are undeniable.
            However, during the aerial combat with ALPHA, Li never managed to shoot down an enemy aircraft, while ALPHA shot down an experienced pilot several times.
            This news is from 2016, but from 2020.
            The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) of the US Department of Defense has summed up the results of the AlphaDogfight Trials virtual air combat tests of neural network algorithms and they are very disappointing for humans: artificial intelligence managed to defeat a professional US Air Force pilot with a score of 5: 0.

            So let's be realistic.

              Don't be confused. It's not about intelligence, but about the flight characteristics for close maneuver combat of this particular model. If you launch air-to-air missiles at a long range on the guidance of an AWACS, an airship constantly hanging in the air will do. If only the carrying capacity is enough.
              And against a fighter, something should be done between a kamikaze drone and an ordinary aircraft missile with the possibility of long-term loitering at the covered object. I wrote this offhand.

                For example, I trust developers.
                And the reasoning of the Vietnamese "experts", or our conclusions from the couch in comparison with the opinion of the developers, to put it mildly, are not convincing. hi

        As there in the article:
        In the case of fully automatic control, super-powerful computing capabilities of an on-board computer are needed, and when controlling a drone by an operator, ultra-high-speed data exchange channels are needed, which allow intensive maneuvering of the aircraft.

        Indeed, where did these Russians come from? They stole a drone, and they fly on it without computers, without engines and communications.
        I hardly joke - that's what some people write. the descendants of the ancient Sumerians are especially trying in half with no less ancient people, which is not accepted to be named.

During the war, a huge amount of resources went from the occupied territory of the USSR to Germany.

          In order to assess the national composition of all European help in people, which, in the hope of easy prey, climbed to kill Soviet and Russian people, I will give a table of that part of foreign volunteers who guessed to surrender to us in time:
          Germans - 2 389 560, Hungarians - 513 767, Romanians - 187 370, Austrians - 156 682, Czechs and Slovaks - 69 977, Poles - 60 280, Italians - 48 957, French - 23 136, Croats - 21 822, Moldovans - 14 129, Jews - 10 173, Dutch - 4 729, Finns - 2 377, Belgians - 2 010, Luxembourgers - 1652, Danes - 457, Spaniards - 452, Gypsies - 383, Norwegians - 101, Swedes - 72.
          The Germans had no problem with supplies: they were provided with weapons and food throughout Europe. The French not only handed over all their tanks to the Germans, but also produced a huge amount of military equipment for them - from cars to optical rangefinders.
          The Czechs, whose only one company, Skoda, produced more weapons than the entire pre-war Great Britain, built an entire fleet of German armored personnel carriers, a huge number of tanks, aircraft, small arms, artillery and ammunition.
          Poles built planes, Polish Jews in Auschwitz produced explosives, synthetic gasoline and rubber to kill Soviet citizens; The Swedes mined ore and supplied the Germans with components for military equipment (for example, bearings), the Norwegians supplied the Nazis with seafood, the Danes - with oil ... In short, all of Europe did its best.
          And she tried not only on the labor front. Only the elite troops of Nazi Germany - the SS troops - accepted 400 thousand "blond beasts" from other countries into their ranks, and a total of 1800 thousand volunteers from all over Europe entered the Hitlerite army, forming 59 divisions, 23 brigades and several national regiments and legions ...
          The most elite of these divisions had not numbers, but their own names indicating national origin: "Valonia", "Galicia", "Bohemia and Moravia", "Viking", "Denemark", "Gembez", "Langemark", "Nordland "," Netherlands "," Charlemagne ", the Spaniards formed the" Blue Division ", etc.

      Again, even then, almost half of the Vietnamese did not think we were saving them from the Americans. They think it was the Americans who wanted to save them from us. And now there are more and more of them. The victory over a great country, of course, flatters their pride, but here is the result many would like to be different. As, for example, Thailand is friends with America and quite lives for itself.

    The ideas are certainly cool, but the thing is that the West is building UAVs in different countries and uses them as their own in a single blow. We are forced to build ourselves and in comparable quantities, which puts us in a losing situation, physically we will never do so much.

    I honestly doubt that in Russia they will be able to bring the Hunter to mind, they just don't have enough people, they need huge investments in AI research, development of electronics, high-speed communication systems, etc., these are all specialists who need to pay above the market, and in the Russian These are the problems, and the brain drain is even going on at an accelerating pace.

    It is practically pointless to use it in the current conditions to intercept fighters. But for escorting and intercepting, for example, reconnaissance UAVs ... it is quite possible
    This is probably the answer to the question that excited so much Vietnamese experts.

    Can anyone suggest at what launch range it is better to eject, and at which maneuver?

    But in the Russian Aerospace Forces, no one said what exactly the drone would intercept if necessary.

    that they plan to launch it on rockets to cover the plane? So is this "Hunter" an interceptor or a hunter for something?

    The Vietnamese exporter thought. He liked it and he thought again.
    Well this is a wise thought, I thought that a subsonic aircraft is not suitable for intercepting supersonic targets! Eureka!

    As usual, a loud headline and no text.

    Here at VO, many commentators were also skeptical about the idea of ​​making the Hunter as an interceptor.
    Why didn't they write about it too?

    The Vietnamese, of course, are more specialists in the area of ​​air defense ... but the article gives quite reasonable arguments, in contrast to the local disparaging comments .. Gentlemen, what's wrong? Do you understand that it is not enough to teach UAVs to fly and throw bombs and launch missiles? A fighter is not an attack aircraft ... An interceptor fighter needs to be able to perform complex aerobatics, to perform anti-missile maneuvers ... to be able to intercept various types of aircraft ... To teach an on-board computer this is a very difficult task, and communication with an operator in a combat situation can to be blocked by interference and other unpleasant things .. There is a lot of work in fact ... And when controlling via satellites, no one canceled the signal delay .. So why are you sneering here? Taught "Okhotnik" to take off and launch rockets on the ground - good .. Let him learn to work without the help of the host ...

      And why all this is the interceptor?
      Supremacy fighter, yes, it is necessary.
      The ground air defense system generally stands in one place, but quite successfully intercepts air targets. The MiG-31 is also an aerobatic pilot.
      Accordingly, it is also enough for an interceptor drone to be able to find and identify targets, launch and direct missiles. But in order to be able to find both air targets and ground / surface ones, you already need a good locator, not aerobatics.

    Pfft, who are these Vietnamese to listen to their "expert opinion"? But also the opinion of specialists from Northrop or Lockheed, maybe it would be worth listening to, at least they have experience in developing aircraft.

    But for escorting and intercepting, for example, reconnaissance UAVs, which are increasingly appearing near the borders of the Russian Federation, including over the Black Sea, it is quite possible.
    - And what is simpler, we have nothing? The reconnaissance UAV is not a high-speed target, why are these dances with tambourines?

    "The interceptor fighter is a military aircraft designed primarily to destroy enemy bombers and cruise missiles."
    Cannon fire is excluded. Launch a rocket from 100 kilometers - there is no need to compete in turns with enemy aircraft. Just a flying platform to launch rockets on command from the ground. So the Vietnamese's doubts about the Hunter are unfounded.

      Are you sure that the "Hunter" does not have cannon armament? Why such a high-speed engine on a "just flying platform"? Not everything is so simple with the Hunter, as you write .. It may not be necessary to compete in turns, but on the other hand, the absence of a man on board gives a very real advantage just in this type of battle - the overloads can be given to the car ... And then - the same anti-missile maneuvers will come in handy in one way or another .. the situation is not always reduced to a duel at a distance of 100 km ..

    Hunter, this is a platform and not a specific finished technical product, it (the product) is constantly being modified, refined at the hardware and software level. This is the groundwork for the future, this is the foundation.
    Good luck with your product.

      For a long time there have been disposable interceptors, air defense missiles, why it is impossible to make a reusable one, and then it is not necessary to manually control all of its maneuvers from the ground, it will be enough to transfer the target parameters, and the AND AND "Hunter" will choose the option of action.

    I did not expect anything else from Asians. Their brains are straight, like the flight of the MiG-31. In addition to high-speed targets, there are many other, low-speed targets. And these goals will prevail on the battlefield in a modern conflict, as, for example, in Karabakh.

    Vietnam should just think about something else, that it would be time to change the MiG-21 BIS and Shilki for something newer, and not talk about what they do not quite understand. Little will the Hunter intercept? can hunt robots or intercept shock guards

    What do they have?
    And they have the Alabama-based rocket startup Aevum just unveiled the world's largest drone - a 28-ton autonomous giant that could soon launch US military satellites into orbit.
    https://www.yahoo.com/news/alabama-rocket-startup-aevum-just-170000599.html
    “Called Ravn X, the 28t UAV is designed to launch a two-stage rocket into the air that puts satellites weighing up to 100kg into orbit. The U.S. Air Force selected Aevum to launch a $ 4,9 million satellite mission in 2021. Aevum has also been awarded a commercial mission contract.
    Jay Skylus, CEO and founder of Aevum, says that his company aims to launch customer satellites within three hours of receiving them at the launch site. ”
