Russia has taken a large step towards the creation of UAVs of various classes

31

Modern air forces in different countries of the world are increasingly increasing the percentage of drones in their composition. If 10-15 years ago drones remained the prerogative of only a couple of countries in the world, today the coverage has grown tenfold. However, not every country in this regard can afford to create its own attack drones, especially of a heavy class. After all, it is one thing to create relatively small drones for aerial reconnaissance, it is quite another thing to create multi-ton aircraft with autonomous control, targeting, effective weapons for guaranteed destruction of such targets.


Russia is among the countries that create their own attack drones. Among the most discussed Russian developments of this nature is the Okhotnik UAV, which is being tested.

This is not just an attack drone, analogous to, for example, some American ones. This is a completely new system capable of performing combat missions in a network-centric format - when interacting with the fifth generation Su-57 fighter. In addition, the Russian "Okhotnik" is preparing to become the world's first unmanned interceptor capable of hitting high-speed targets.

In the near future, it is planned to create a second prototype, which will already take into account the experience of testing the first version.
How many such drones can be part of the Russian Aerospace Forces is still an open question. However, it should be stated that Russia has taken a broad step towards creating UAVs of various classes.

    again the author is silent about 10 pieces of AB of 100 VI each.
    really our generation will not see such mastodons in the fleet of the Russian Federation during their lifetime?

    - what a happiness it is to live without aircraft carriers.

    control of Eurasia - then everything else

      An article about the fact that someone somewhere successfully "saws" the budget.
      So far, nothing at the exit, but give money for the second prototype!

        From what is known:
        1. Small UAVs MO is supplied. Up to and including the Outpost And there are many of them.
        2. There is an order for Orion and a factory is under construction. (Now, this is the most important device for us)
        3. With Altius, everyone was put in prison, the plant was changed, the satellite was connected ..... there is no serial production yet, with the internal combustion engine - ???
        4. For the Hunter, for good reason, all the hardware is there, the weapons are similar to the Su57, I think. And there is no urgency.
        5. Nothing is heard about the device like Global Havk. With a turbojet engine .... here the Russian Federation has a gap both in the piloted class and in the UAV and the "Okhotnik", although in this weight, will not replace it. And intelligence is needed for the CD, all kinds of Zircons and Onyxes and Calibers.

      That it is better to take a small step in a given direction every day than to race afterwards.

          no. all the more so only they will allow to catch up with the favorites. but this is not a systemic decision, but a situational, forced one.
          and, of course, they can carry increased risks.
          it is the tactics of small steps with constant movement that speaks of the presence of a strategy, plans for the medium and long term, and an understanding of the problem.

      ... It is intended to provoke discussion. I personally believe that the Hunter is capable of replacing part of light tactical fighters, significantly increasing the potential and survivability of the main, leading fighter. In general, it can be controlled even with the Il-112 with operators. It will significantly reduce the costs of videoconferencing, because to train the operator it does not need to be lifted into the air, and this saves fuel and resources. The Chinese say that Su-27 family cars consume from 750 thousand to 2,5 million rubles per hour. Of course, it is equally important to have cars for the "Papuans" - therefore Altius, etc. will also find its place.

    Okay, a wide step ... and a potential adversary is marking time or takes two steps at a time?
    We go forward, it's good ... we follow others, this is also possible, but you can't lag far behind, our enemy is too serious !!!
    Catch up and overtake !!! this is an achievable goal / no, we'll see.

      Well, you swung! Even NATO, not counting other "partners" in the form of Japan, Australia, and a dozen others, has a GDP and military budget that cannot be compared with Russia. So I'm not up to fat, maybe I would live ...

        So that is correct, reasonable, but if you do not make "Napoleonic" plans, you can simply work, create what you need and the way you need it.
        And what is wrong?

      Everything. In addition to hohlobots, analnyts and other liberals. Although the channel works poorly, instead of constant reruns, more news is needed, primarily on the economy, and on military affairs. It is necessary to talk about the achievements and products of Russian companies, thereby raising both the economy and patriotism. But this is FREE advertising ...

        A good channel must be impartial. This means that there should be no propaganda, official position and pro-government opinions, only words in essence without any personal assessment and interpretation. A media person cannot be pro-government, because he is an intellectual, and the intelligentsia is always in opposition. Ideally, the state should be thrown out of the air altogether.

          A good channel must be impartial.

          An impartial channel must also be funded by someone. How long will the channel be able to remain impartial to the source of this funding? The question is not even rhetorical.

            It's not that important. The main thing is not to the state. One of the most serious troubles is budgetary diktat. Take a look at the forced state employees, pensioners, security officials, even prisoners - and you will also understand why, for example, the president regularly receives 70% in elections. Although, in fact, he has a zero rating for a long time. That is why I see one of the most important tasks - to deprive the state of administrative resources in general and budgetary diktat in particular. Only then will truly fair elections be possible, only when candidates from the state fight others on equal terms. And not the current production, which has more ritual significance.

              Your logic is curious. An alternative to the budgetary diktat can only be the dictate of big capital. So the horseradish radish is not sweeter.

                In this case, you can go for such a tactical alliance. The main goal is to consistently push the state out of the economy. Ideally, I see it this way: there is a government quarter, all sorts of embassies, ministries, like Canberra in Australia. The quarter is fenced. And this fence is the border of the state. And then - the Territory of the Citizen, who has nothing to do with the state. And from an early age, he is brought up: a decent person is intoxicated to have at least some dealings with the state, such a nationwide eternal boycott.

                  In the army and the police, as I understand it, will guest workers and mercenaries serve? And if tomorrow is a war - the state from behind the fence shouts "All for the defense of the Fatherland!", And decent people on the other side of the fence will twist their figs? laughing

                    A sufficiently developed civil society is quite capable of effectively self-governing without the state, including law enforcement and defense. Switzerland crawled closer to this state, with its militia army and referendums on any significant issue. And Bern has no right to order any canton, the whole union is based solely on mutual respect and personal authority of Bern.
