WATCH Russia’s secretive ‘Okhotnik’ stealth drone during maiden flight
Released on Tuesday, the video opens with ‘Okhotnik’ (Hunter in English) taxiing towards a runway at an undisclosed military airfield. Painted light-gray, the one-engine, 20-ton aircraft then takes off for the skies to perform a series of in-flight tests.
Okhotnik’s maiden flight lasted 20 minutes, with the drone cruising at just 600 meters, the military said.
Its design is based on the flying-wing aerodynamic model and incorporates the widespread use of composite materials and stealth technology.
