    George1 posted this on MAKS 2017 tread but we should have it here for visual reference as well:

    Today at MAKS Kronstadt presented his drone Orion with the letter E. Premiere long-awaited, because the need to have a MALE class of its own design has long been ripe. So .... UAV of medium altitude of long duration of flight

    New details of the research project "Ohotnik-B" and the design of the unmanned aerial vehicle S-70

    Some additional details on the development of the unobtrusive unmanned S-70 unmanned aircraft in Russia ("Ohotnik-B" research project) are reported by Piotr Butowski in the note "Au-dela du Su-57: le Su-70 Okhotnik" published by Air & Cosmos. Thus, the author notes that on October 14, 2011, the Russian Ministry of Defense instructed Sukhoi Company (Sukhoi Design Bureau) to begin research work on the topic "Ohotnik", whose goal is to create an unmanned reconnaissance-strike system that would have a large Speed ​​and autonomy. In those rare documents where there is mention of the "Ohotnik", it is characterized as "unmanned aerial vehicle of the sixth generation"



    Within the framework of the research project "Ohotnik" Sukhoi Design Bureau is developing a project designated as S-70. According to information to be checked, the S-70 demonstrator was manufactured at the Novosibirsk Aviation Plant named after V.P. Chkalov - a branch of JSC "Company" Sukhoi ". The first flight is scheduled for 2018. The specific characteristics of the S-70 are unknown, only guesswork can be built. The weight of the UAV is in the range of 10-20 tons, and the maximum speed is estimated at 1000 km/h.

    Egozi: Israel Will Not Export Advanced UAVs to Russia

    Egozi: Israel Will Not Export Advanced UAVs to Russia

    By Arie Egozi

    This was the U.S demand even before the Trump era and the downturn it had brought to the Washington-Moscow relations. Washington has objected to the further sale of any type of Israeli-made unmanned aerial system (UAV) to Russia. The unofficial embargo has been the focus of talks between Washington and Jerusalem during the Obama era but the Americans made it clear that their position was firm.

    Israeli sources said that the fact that a Russian UAV entered the Israeli airspace from Syria last year gives Washington another reason to block any future sales of Israeli-made UAVs to Russia. This was prior to the recent deterioration of the relations between the U.S and Russia.


    Immediately after the UAV was detected, two Patriot surface-to-air missiles were launched and missed. A third attempt to shoot it down with an air-air missile also failed.

    According to the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF), the origin of the UAV has not been verified, but sources said that it is probably an Israeli-made Russian UAV operated by the Russian forces in Syria.

    In recent months, Washington has vetoed any further sales of Israeli-made UAVs to Russia. Israel has tried to fight the veto as part of the improved relations with Russia. Washington says that the war in Syria may result in advanced technologies falling in the hands of ISIS.

    Russian companies have recently contacted some Israeli manufacturers of UAVs in an attempt to reach some kind of a joint venture agreement, but after checking with the Israeli Ministry of Defense it became obvious that the Americans would be “very angry” if further sales would be made.

    Some years ago, the Russians have purchased 10 Searcher 2 and 30 BirdEye-450 from Israel aerospace industries (IAI). The Israeli-made UAVs were partially assembled in a Russian plant. Some of the UAVs, mainly the Searcher 2 dubbed Forpost in Russia, have been used by the Russian forces in Syria.

    Russian sources said that the combat experience has resulted in a demand for more advanced UAVs that are manufactured by some Israeli companies. The preliminary talks with the Israeli companies have been cut short after it was made clear that as a result of an American veto an export license will not be issued.

    Better yet, you can take your links and shove it. Because it holds no form of reality.  "since they don't want to admit it".  Hey asshole, unlike your shitty Jew media, Russia has real independent media.  You know that?  Novaya Gozeta hates Putin so they would post this drivel as well.

    But, reality is, Russia doesn't want it.  We have gone over this with you.  Western media is bullshit, sorry to say.  And that is why Russia funded programs like Orion and Altius.

    So thank you, and go away.

    So once again, please provide proof or fuck off.

    Lets see, non Russian government media outlets not reporting it: interfax, Novaya Gazeta. Huh, so I guess it isn't real then. Funny thing too, is that Russia could have purchased it prior to 2014. but nope, nothing.

    Sure sounds like Israel suffers from some delusions of grandeur were everyone wants their shit. Yet, you can get same shit from Turkey if they REALLY wanted to. Or Iran.

    Gee, I guess russia will just have to use the stuff that they make like Orion. Oh well. Poor them Laughing

    if russia develop 20 ton ucav why they want to buy from israel?

    In the mid 1980s the Soviets launched the Buran on an Energyia rocket... it flew at mach 22+ and circled the earth and weighed rather more than 20 tons.

    It is not about weight.

    Different UAVs have different sensors and systems and performances.

    Clearly the Israeli UAVs had software and systems that were tested and proven and have been developed over many years with many millions of dollars spent on making them better.

    Think of it in terms of the failed Mistral deal with France.

    The Mistrals were a proven design that would have gotten into service rapidly and not have future problems or issues because of hidden or unforeseen faults.

    Of course the real issue was the stupid French government and no fault on the side of the French ship makers, though in the end the Russians ended getting full indepth access to the design and systems of the Mistral and got their money back and also got sales potential for systems and aircraft to the new owner Egypt... but they didn't get the ships they wanted in the time frame they wanted.

    Now they have more time to develop and plan and build their own ships, which means more time to develop and build other support ships and equipment.

    It is the same with these Israeli UAVs.

    They would prefer to buy more UAVs that are better than the ones they have previously bought, but that is clearly off the table.

    They are using UAVs and seem to be very effective in their use in Syria, so at the end of the day these US imposed sanctions are only hurting Israeli companies that are not getting contracts that will now likely go to Russian companies.

    the investment will improve Russian capabilities in this area.

    We have already seen feedback from Syria about needing better optics for longer range viewing in all weathers day and night, so I expect they are already going to apply that to UAVs and UCAVs too.
