Higher potential with artificial intelligence: The United States responded to the tests of the Russian UAV Okhotnik-B

46

Work on the creation of a Russian-made strike unmanned aerial vehicle "Okhotnik-B" (apparently referring to the bomber version, worked out during flight tests) may be completed ahead of schedule. Recently, its regular tests took place, during which the UAV for the first time dropped a bomb weighing 500 kilograms from the inner fuselage compartment.


American expert David Ax writes about this in his article published by Forbes magazine.

The new equipment was tested at the Ashuluk test site, located in the Astrakhan region.

In the United States, they reacted rather nervously to the tests of the Russian UAV Okhotnik-B. They note that work on this technique is proceeding at a rapid pace - and this is "a matter of concern."

It was reported that the drone is equipped with the latest sighting and navigation equipment, which allows bombing with an accuracy approaching high-precision arms... It is not known exactly how the UAV was controlled during the bomb drop. Ex suggested they were using radio remote control.

American military expert Samuel Bendett believes that an artificial intelligence system will be installed on the drone, which will allow the device to operate autonomously, with minimal operator intervention in control. Thus, he will be able to independently search and identify targets, eventually hitting stationary or moving objects related to such targets. The US press notes that the Russian strike drone has a higher potential with artificial intelligence, which can allow it to integrate during a combat operation with the fifth generation Su-57 fighter of the Russian Aerospace Forces.

The unmanned aerial vehicle "Okhotnik" is being developed by the Sukhoi Design Bureau. Its design is a "flying wing". The drone, which is 14 meters long, is equipped with a turbojet engine. Earlier it was reported that the drone could end up with a flat nozzle to reduce signature.

    The entire world is concerned about the aggressive US policy. They would sit on their priests across the ocean and neither the Americans themselves would have any concerns, and no one in the world would have any concerns about their aggressive policy. And so they are constantly looking for adventure and someday they will find them on their own head.

        Many people don't like America either. With her, too, many want to do a lot of bad things. In many ways, they deserve this attitude towards themselves. With its eternal aggression and lawlessness. And in general what the hell they always do not like something. What business does this or that country invent a drone or not? Or only they can invent, and if someone also invents something, then this causes concern for them. Are they generally healthy?

        Still not expressing concern! With such a shock drone, I think you can do a good job if something happens to their European Abrams, and not only!

          This technique is not for fighting the "Abrams" .. And yes - without artificial intelligence (and so far artificial intelligence is hardly ready) - it is not a weapon.

      The United States is the enemy of Russia at the moment, as evidenced by the so-called Cold War, which seems to be stronger than it was between the USSR and the United States. The forces are too unequal, almost all the countries of the Western (and not only) world are on the side of the USA, almost no one is on the side of Russia. Do the rulers of Russia have a strategy or is it passive - like we will wait for what will happen, where will the curve take?

        The US is Russia's enemy at the moment

        By and large, the United States is an enemy for all really independent and independent countries, which the United States, for one reason or another, could not subjugate and make part of its system.
        on the side of the United States, almost all countries of the Western (and not only) world, on the side of Russia, almost no one.

        Not on the side of the United States, but in many respects under the authority, dependence on the United States, each in one way or another. And forcibly, as they say, you can't be cute. It seems like countries in the American orbit, but as soon as the American grip looses, they immediately strive to escape from the power of the American system. For example, since the beginning of the XNUMXs, Russia has successfully moved away from US influence and immediately became bad for its independence and independence. Germany cannot do this yet. The bases there are American occupation. So every year it is more difficult for the Americans to manage this global booth. Threats and sanctions are already in use. Always someone is forced, forced. Who is behind the same yellow vests in France? Globalist Democrats. So that the French are not forgotten. In Brazil and Argentina, they didn’t wash like that, over time, they put pro-American puppets in power. Again, the Americans grappled with China. That is, they have enough problems. Try not to be with the Americans here. Problems will not be avoided. Many decide to submit to the United States for pragmatic reasons, some do not. So nominally you are right that while the United States is holding the system, even with the help of slaps, including to its allies. But as they say, being an enemy of the United States is bad, but a friend of the United States is even worse. The United States has no friends, it has vassals. Yes, and the crisis in the United States is planned. Let's live and see as they say.

            Pragmatic considerations should come first. The economy, the welfare of citizens should be the main goal of the rulers, not their own political ambitions.

            Are you all trying to prove that the United States can become a friend to us? They say that the rulers in Russia are bad. And let's remember that in the "holy nineties" everyone in the West clapped on the shoulder of Boris Nikolayevich Yeltsin and all the time praised him and our democracy. At the same time they immediately supported the weakening and plundering of our country, tried to profit at our expense. Arab militants. The privatization and destruction of thousands of factories under the strict guidance of Western advisers is worth it. Do friends do that? And were they even for a minute our friends, did they consider themselves as such, or were we in the role of the next natives of the aborigines whom they used to rob? It is bad to be an enemy of the United States, but to be a friend is even worse. Examples of "friendship" between the United States and Georgia and Ukraine say the same thing. The same result is how they got involved with the United States, so the peoples are getting poorer and all the wealth of these countries is flowing to the West, and the Americans are like protecting Georgians and Ukrainians from evil Russia. Elementary money is bred and robbed.
            And for the development of the economy and the well-being of citizens, cooperation with the leading countries of the world is necessary, especially with those that have critical technologies.

            But where was this welfare of citizens in the "holy nineties"? To the West flowed away? And who in our time shares critical technologies, even for money? An example of an ally of the West of India, for example, where, even after paying colossal grandmothers to the French for the planes, the Indians did not wait for the transfer technologies. The market is divided and no one wants the competition. Americans immediately refused to transfer technology. Keep your pocket wider. The West's only task is to cash in on someone.

              Where did you suddenly see it? Funny - what kind of friends? A country may have common interests for a certain period of time. And, of course, in the partnership, someone will be in charge, maybe it won't stick out, maybe it will. The phrase of Alexander 1 that Russia has only two friends - the army and the navy - is also relevant for other countries of the world. Russia, like many other countries, is dependent on US technology and permits. The United States, thanks to not the worst governments, has secured its leadership. The rest will have to adjust or get stronger. It's simple. The question is - what should be the horn on the most powerful country? Maybe it's better to look for common ground? And to sacrifice something, and what did you want from the weaker one?

            One can partially agree with the first five lines of the comment, although Russia also has technologies that are not available in the West. But the sixth-seventh lines are provocative. With whom in the West are we arranging confrontation? Are we building bases, placing rockets? In the 90s, how our rulers loved America - did it help Russia a lot? "to give someone else the future of Russia" - give a surname.

              The fact that Russia is opposing itself to the United States is hard to miss. I am surprised that someone does not see it. Maybe you haven't heard of the Munich speech? On the one hand, contradictions are inevitable, the interests of different countries certainly do not coincide in everything, even the closest ones. On the other hand, there are contradictions and contradictions.
              And about the name - I have no idea. For some reason, the current system of power does not give birth to new leaders, although this is the basis for the continuity of power. However, if we assume that the current government is successful and everything is going well, then this is not necessary. Is not it?

    Then they will come up with another modernization. And so on ad infinitum. I don't want to believe in this scenario. But why not provide for a flat nozzle immediately during development? The fact that it is less radio-noticeable has long been known.

      Well, this is nothing new. The whole modern industry lives like this (and not only the military one): first the system is developed, then tested, brought into production, launched into a series, and at this time the designers develop fresh solutions using the latest technological innovations, and apply them in new modifications, thereby ensuring constant development and improvement of the system and its maintenance at an actual and competitive level.
