A unified armament complex is being created for the Pioneer (Orion), Altius and Forpost drones, as well as promising medium-altitude strike drones, which are still being worked on. The Okhotnik strike UAV and the Thunder, which is at the design stage, will receive weapons similar to manned fighters, including those created specifically for the Su-57.
