“Bring the Hunter to the mind”: the Chinese drone appreciated in China

Chinese media praised the first flight of the Russian drone "Hunter". According to Chinese journalists, the strike platform is effective at constant subsonic speed and is hardly noticeable. The perfection of the design of the drone made according to the “flying wing” scheme is also noted. Russia will continue to conduct tests, bringing the "Hunter" "to the mind."

The first flight of the latest Russian drone “Okhotnik” is of great importance for the further development of reconnaissance and strike drones in Russia. This is stated by Chinese journalists in the Huanqiu Shibao newspaper.
“One of the key areas of world aviation is drones designed on the basis of the“ flying wing ”. Russia will make serious efforts to further test and bring the Hunter drone to mind, ”the article says.

The authors note that the new drones will be used for reconnaissance, data collection and delivering lightning strikes. In addition, the Russian drone is highly efficient at cruising subsonic speed due to its high aerodynamic qualities.
Finally, Chinese journalists note the stealth technologies used in the development of Russian drones, as well as technological solutions. In particular, there is no vertical tail at the Hunter, and radar reflection systems are hidden in the hull.
The American edition of The Drive, in turn, noted that the design of the “Hunter” resembles that of the American strike aircraft F-117 Nighthawk. At the same time, the design of the Russian UAV can allow it to fly at supersonic speeds and be used as a wing in the link with the latest Su-57 fighters, FAN reports.

In early August, the Russian Ministry of Defense demonstrated a video of the first flight of the Okhotnik UAV. In 20 minutes, several times under the control of the operator, he flew around one of the test aerodromes of the Ministry of Defense, rising to a height of about 600 meters,
transmits NSN.
The Okhotnik combat complex was created by Sukhoi Company JSC  according to the “flying wing” scheme, that is, the “tailless” type. In this case, the main role is played by the wing, which carries all the payload. At the same time, the drone was carried out using special materials and coatings that make it practically invisible to radar detection tools.
In late January, the American publication The National Interest reported that the next deadly weapon that is being developed in Russia is the Okhotnik-B jet stealth drone. Despite the previous failures of the Russian military in the development of combat robots, this new product is likely to be useful in front-line aviation, the article notes.
The first drone images appeared in late January. In 2019, the first test of the new "Hunter" should be carried out.
It is noted that the "Okhotnik-B" will become the heaviest and fastest drone, armed with Russia. However, its weight and speed indicate that it is necessary to work out a lot of aerodynamic, electronic and high-tech issues, said Russian weapons expert Sam Bendett. The Hunter drone will weigh about 20 tons and will be able to accelerate to almost 1000 km / h. The expert added that it may take several more years to develop before the new drone is ready for service.
According to the portal Business Insider, this aircraft, which looks similar to the American bomber B-2 Spirit (the most secretive aircraft in the USA), can significantly complicate the life of the American military.
The development of modern drones in Russia began in the eighties of the XX century. The first models of Soviet UAVs were used by Russian troops in the Chechen wars, two of them were shot down by militants. New models began to be released already in the zero years, one of the first reconnaissance vehicles was Dozor-85.
The industry of unmanned aerial vehicles in Russia has recently been developing at an explosive pace. At the end of last year,  TASS  reported that the first small Karnivor strike drone was created in Russia, which is currently undergoing flight tests. It is reported that the drone is able to use nets to intercept quadrocopters, several types of cartridges for fragmentation and high-explosive ammunition and reconnaissance equipment.
