    Russia’s Okhotnik attack drone to become prototype of sixth generation fighter — source

    The prototype of Okhotnik (Hunter) is ready and will start test flights this year

    MOSCOW, July 20. /TASS/. Russia’s newest Okhotnik attack drone will become a prototype of the country’s sixth generation fighter jet, a defense industry source has told TASS.

    According to the official, although the sixth generation fighter jet project "has not yet taken full shape, its main features are already known."

    "First of all, it should be unmanned and capable of performing any combat task in an autonomous regime. In this sense, Okhotnik will become the prototype of the sixth generation fighter jet,’ the source said, adding that the drone will be able to "take off, fulfill its objectives and return to the airfield."

    "However, it will not receive the function of decision-making regarding the use of weapons - this will be decided by a human," he said.

    TASS was unable to officially confirm the information at the time of the publication.

    Another defense industry source earlier told TASS that the prototype of Okhotnik (Hunter) was ready and would start test flights this year.

    The Russian Defense Ministry and the Sukhoi Company signed a contract for developing the 20-ton Okhotnik (Hunter) heavy unmanned strike aircraft in 2011. The drone’s mock-up model was made in 2014. According to unconfirmed reports, composite materials and anti-radar coating were used to create the Okhotnik. The drone is equipped with a reaction-jet propulsion and is supposed to develop a speed of 1000 kilometers per hour.

    Unmanned fleet-convertor tested in Rusia

    The aircraft was developed in Tatarstan under the order of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation. The flight range of the convertoplane is 100 kilometers.

    The unmanned aerial vehicle-converter, developed in Tatarstan, successfully passed the test. This was announced by the rector of the Kazan National Research Technical University named after Tupolev Albert Gilmutdinov.

    "Convertoop, which takes off like a helicopter, and then flies like an airplane, is tested, really flies. It was commissioned by the Russian Defense Ministry, "Gilmutdinov said at the Kazan ACTO-2018 exhibition.

    According to him, the flight range of the convertoplan is 100 kilometers, and the cruising speed is about 140 kilometers per hour.

    Takeoff mass of the drone is 6.7 kilograms, while it is capable of lifting into the air a payload of up to one kilogram.

    This is an UVA below 7 kg weight! What payload should be expected?

    ZALA AERO unveils a new unmanned vehicle at the international forum "Army-2018"

    The ZALA 421-16E5V2 unmanned vehicle from ZALA AERO , the leading manufacturer of integrated solutions in the field of unmanned aerial systems (part of JSC "Concern" Kalashnikov "), was presented for the first time at the International Military Technical Forum" Army-2018 ".

    The advantageous advantages of the ZALA 421-16E5V2 unmanned system are the flight duration, which is 14 hours, which will make it possible to fly from Izhevsk to Moscow, having covered a distance of more than 1200 kilometers. Particular attention in the development of the complex was paid to ergonomics during operation and transportation, which allowed reducing the aircraft's weight to 30 kilogram
    s.

    The target load of up to 5 kilograms weight allows the simultaneous integration of 6 different cameras to perform tasks at an altitude of up to 5000 meters at day and night, excluding forced landing for the replacement of optoelectronic equipment.

    For the first time for the unmanned complex, a unique target load of air laser scanning has been developed. The technology provides data on the terrain under study, including terrain, detects disguised objects and their characteristics, including any changes in the natural environment.

    Used in the development of innovative approaches to solving technical and operational problems, highlight the novelty among the entire world market. For the first time in its class, the ZALA 421-16E5V2 unmanned system uses an automated data processing system to efficiently solve problems of optical-electronic reconnaissance, aerial photography in the visible and infrared ranges, conduct electronic reconnaissance, and retransmit video and voice communications.

    At the moment the unmanned complex is in the stage of factory testing.

     The ZALA AERO group of companies is the leading Russian manufacturer of unmanned aerial systems, target loads and other technical means to ensure their use.
    The main products are integrated solutions in the field of unmanned aerial systems, communications, software and security systems.

    Reconnaissance + strike? Interceptor?

    Hypersonic propulsion is something you want back at home and not in the hands of the enemy, even if the engine is destroyed, the materials are can be analysed, and it is also probably not cheap. So, a drone makes sense.

    more than 1 year ago Borisov mentioned about an "orbital bomber" which can start and land form normal airfields. The Info was demented and that he was just talking the talk...Same time he mentioned VSTOL too bounce bounce

    Avangard isnt passive? Drone would suggest own power and ability to return base. Otherwise why call it drone not a Cruise Missile?

    Okhotnik will apparently take off for the first time in September. It wont be a fully fledged flight but rather short jumps... first flight 2019

    http://tass.ru/armiya-i-opk/5482044

    Maybe we can see it at least during these tests?

    Source: RAC "MiG" has resumed work on the drone drone "Scat"


    It is reported that the design of the UAV will use the technology "stealth"

    "The company has resumed work on the" Scat ". An experimental model of this jet UAV is planned to be created in the next few years," the source said. He clarified that "the Russian military department was interested in this apparatus."

    The previously presented "Scat" model was made according to the aerodynamic scheme "flying wing" [does not have a tail unit]. It was planned that the maximum take-off mass of the device would be 10 tons, speed - 850 km / h, the range of flight - 4 thousand km. The UAV was supposed to carry both missile and bomb weapons in the interior of the cabin.

    Too late Mikoyan. You are way too far behind. Others in Russia are developing it already while you sat and waited.
