    lol!  He really is a clown sometimes.  But the show is great and would be much better if he wasn't such a moron sometimes.

    Pretty much

    But then again target audience for this show when it airs on regular TV are kids and retired folks so they probably like it

    Totally agree and that it is a great show and super informative. He just ruins it sometimes with his dingleberry antics lmfao.

    When it comes to presenters you can have dry boring serious guys, or you can have entertaining idiots who are not experts on the subject and are learning along with us.

    A less violent Jeremy Clarkson.

    From what I've seen he is clearly very patriotic and VERY enthusiastic and likes to propagate Russia's weapons capabilities and records, with a few fibs here and there, but overall it's a great show.

    BTW Gary I do like old Jeremy Laughing

    I know very little about cars, but found Top Gear to be very entertaining to watch when the three presenters were still doing it.

    Now not so much.

    So no STOL requirements for Okhotnik, that means it will probably have really outstanding range and persistence to operate from air bases rather far from the front and the ability to stay on station for many hours, waiting to receive an assignment almost in real time and therefore be able to take on time critical targets. At probably 0.8 - 0.9 M max speed, it is not exactly slow at a tactical level either, so it will be much more effective against ground targets that classical strike / interdiction planes that have rather lengthy overheads related to getting mission parameters, taking off and moving into the right position to attack.

    As the dimensions of the Okhotnik were shown the reporter mentioned that future drones under that program would be much larger. There are rumours that Russia is working on a strategic drone, big enough to carry Kh-101 cruise missiles.

    Well that makes sense because they talk about unmanned versions of their new fighters all the time.... does that not suggest unmanned bombers might also be on the cards... though the cost of such a thing would be eye watering...

    Personally I think for long endurance drones they should consider airships... not fast... can't fire fight from place to place like a smaller faster jet powered aircraft, but its ability to remain on station for a month... perhaps covered in solar panels with radar arrays and communications hubs to bounce signals and assist in the control of robots on the ground or in the air... able to operate at very high altitudes and to change altitudes to take advantage of the trade winds that could allow it to move significant distances very quickly if needed...

    Part II of that Combat Approved video about the S-70 is on now I think...
