Russian President Putin Unveils 'Hunter' Stealth Drone

Releases Video Showing Some Of The Aircraft's Capabilities

Russia has published video the first flight of its "Hunter" stealth drone competed last week.

The U.K. newspaper The Express reports that The Sukhoi-built "Okhotnik" drone is expected to be able to carry out combat as well as surveillance missions. In the video, the aircraft is shown taking off from an airport, conducting some basic flight maneuvers, and then returning to land.

The exact specs of the Hunter drone are classified, as one might expect, but it has an estimated gross takeoff weight of 20-25 tons and be capable of flying at speeds up to Mach 1.13. Its range is estimated at nearly 2,700 nautical miles.

The Hunter closely resembles the RQ-170 Sentinel drone. It is considered to be a major upgrade to other UAVs previously developed by the Russian military.
