The Pentagon should be wary of the Russian Hunter UAV, experts said
WASHINGTON, (BM) – The American magazine The National Interest published material in which he called the Russian drone “Hunter” “close to combat readiness”, learned BulgarianMilitary.com citing the magazine.
According to Rossiyskaya Gazeta, in this way overseas journalists reacted to the news that the latest Russian UAV would be insured for 1.3 billion rubles before the next test phase.
The author of the material does not hide that there is very little information on this drone and is trying to characterize the car by photo and video frames. It was immediately noticed that the device does not have external points of ammunition suspension.
Therefore, the American expert concluded that all armament of the drone will be placed in the internal compartments.
The expert also comes to the conclusion that, due to the angular shape, in its stealth, the Russian “Hunter” is still inferior to the American B-2 aircraft. The American journalist described the possibility of interaction between the UAV and the fighter as the most serious feature of the drone.
The author recalled that under the same program, the United States is now working on its F-22 and F-35.
The Russian “Hunter” has already demonstrated its capabilities in a joint flight with a fifth-generation fighter Su-57. The technology allows the pilot to directly give commands to the drone, while ground stations are not involved at all.
Thus, the drone will be able to perform the most risky tasks and will allow the aircraft itself not to enter the hazardous areas controlled by enemy aircraft or air defense.
