    Better even, they do focus on both Wink

    Who says that long range interdiction would not be useful in the SMO? One Okhotnik sqd. on station over regions of Central and Western Ukraine would be much better against time critical target and deliver a much bigger payload to the targets than even Kalibr, together with the unique ability of retargeting and doing reconnaissance and SEAD at the same time. It would probably not be easy to detect it and much less track it, ukie radar stations would need to work overtime and give themselves away, besides the western AWACS would have a hard time getting them and warning targets / cueing AD against them. Armed with AAMs they could patrol around enemy air bases for much longer time and prevent UAVs and tactical planes from operating much more effectively than remote SAMs or fighters called on purpose. Against a severely degraded AD the stealth design would open many options which are currently not feasible and bring the use of air power to a new level in Ukraine, not to talk about the effect it would have in deterring or if needed actually visiting poles and other candidates to denazification across Europe...

    Serial production for Okhotnik getting closer:

    At the aircraft factory in Novosibirsk will build a case for painting drones

    The project of the building will be ready in the spring of next year

    NOVOSIBIRSK, May 27. /tass/. A new building for special painting of unmanned aerial vehicles will be built at the Novosibirsk Aircraft Factory named after Chkalov, where, as previously reported, it is planned to start production of stealth drones "Okhotnik". The design of the building will be ready in the spring of next year, Igor Bochkarev, Executive Director of SibproektNIIaviaprom JSC, which is engaged in the design of the building, told reporters.

    "Now we plan to complete the work and come out with a positive conclusion of Glavgosexpertiza in the spring of next year. It is planned that about a year will be construction. This building is focused on painting the aircraft, then it goes to the flight test shop, and then goes to the military units, " Bochkarev said, adding that we are talking about the production of heavy drones.

    He added that some areas of production at NAZ im. Chkalov will be reconstructed for assembly. As an employee of the Research Institute Sergey Kazachev told reporters, a paint chamber will be located in the new building. The dimensions of the workshop are about 150 m long and 40 m wide. The process of applying paint to such devices is technologically very complex, and, according to Kazachev, requires a special temperature regime and regulation of air flows.

    Earlier, a government source told TASS that the plant will modernize production within five years with the construction of a new building for the production of S-70 Okhotnik heavy stealth unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). It was reported that modernization will begin in 2022, and the amount of investment will be about 2.5 billion rubles.

    NAZ im. Chkalova was founded in 1931. During the Great Patriotic War, it produced more than 15 thousand Yak-7 and Yak-9 fighters. Later, the plant was also focused on the production of military aircraft. Its main products are Su-34 front-line bombers, but the company also produces parts for SSJ-100 civilian passenger aircraft.

    The Russian heavy attack drone S-70B Okhotnik performed tests firing at ground targets with guided missiles, which are part of the Su-57 fighter's armament. This is reported by RIA Novosti with reference to an informed source.

    The interlocutor of the agency stressed that the first experimental model of the device as part of flight tests performed a series of guided missile firing.

    "Several types of air-to-surface missiles were used from the armament of the fifth-generation Su-57 fighter with a real defeat of ground targets," the source said.

    According to him, testing has shown that the device effectively hits small-sized camouflaged targets with missiles at different times of the day and in all weather conditions.
