The Russian military-industrial complex is preparing for mass production of the S-70 “Okhotnik” heavy drone
The Russian military-industrial complex (DIC) is preparing for mass production of heavy drone S-70 "Hunter". The device will begin to be produced this year at the Novosibirsk Aviation Plant named after Chkalov. At the moment, the final stage of its testing is underway.
The UAV is capable of performing a wide variety of functions, including aerial reconnaissance, striking ground targets and combating aviation and enemy unmanned vehicles.
One of its main design features is the presence of a flat jet nozzle, which reduces radar signature drone.
The device was developed at the Sukhoi Design Bureau. The first flight of the drone took place in August 2019, and in September of the same year it acted as a wingman in tandem with the latest Su-57 fighter.
Recently, a significant event took place in the Russian defense industry - the ceremonial withdrawal from the boathouse of the nuclear submarine "Prince Pozharsky".
Despite the fact that Russia is currently conducting a complex and costly special military operation, domestic aircraft manufacturers are making progress not only in the defense industry, but also in creating aircraft for peaceful use. Thus, at the Aviastar plant in Ulyanovsk, production of the Il-76MD-90A, the civilian version of the famous Il-76 military transport aircraft, has been resumed. Its main purpose is the delivery of equipment and other goods over long distances.
