The heavy attack drone S-70 “Okhotnik” stealth heavy unmanned combat aerial vehicle struck a ground target at the Ashuluk range as part of flight tests, Russia’s state-run news agency RIA Novosti reported citing a source in the military-industrial complex.
According to the report, the Okhotnik dropped unguided aerial bombs of 500 kg caliber from the internal bay. The report did not provide details on the date when the bombing took place, but noted that these were not the first tests to destroy ground targets.
The report says that the Okhotnik is capable of autonomously hitting ground-based stationary and restrictedly mobile targets with previously known coordinates, including when receiving external target designation in the air.
