“A huge step forward for Russians”: in the West they appreciated the flight of “Okhotnik” and Su-57

On September 27, 2019, the latest Russian heavy attack drone S-70 “Okhotnik” made its first joint flight with a fifth-generation fighter Su-5. A large number of media in the West published footage and described the progress of the tests. These publications have aroused genuine interest and feedback from readers in comments that speak for themselves.




Most users agreed that "the Russians have advanced significantly in technological terms." In fact, this is a quantum leap in the production of first-class combat equipment. Attention was also drawn to the fact that “Russians spend less money on defense,” but at the same time manage to show good results.

How is it that Russia with lower GDP and lower defense costs than the UK, not to mention the fact that the entire European Union can create the military equipment that they need for protection, in most cases produces weapons superior to ours? We no longer have engineers?

- euexit is perplexed.

Good technology from the Russians.

- noted dai2000.

Not bad on the part of the Russians. I really think this is a great concept and a huge step forward for them.

- pointed out MrRaptor.

The Russians are not so good in terms of the development of artificial intelligence (AI), but they are excellent engineers, so they started exactly from this - from the most difficult. If they have more funding, they will be able to develop an inconspicuous exhaust system, as well as more reconnaissance or strike modifications on the same platform.

- wrote Halken.

I know that this is most likely our opponent, that none of the presented vehicles will pass the American stealth test and that they probably will not be produced in serious quantities, but, damn it, this is a very beautiful plane and an ominous-looking drone .

- stressed Billprudden.


And this is just a microscopic amount of comments from a huge array, they simply reflect the general opinion. In addition, a significant number of users were impressed by the fact that now the most advanced UAV in the world is the Russian one. At the same time, many users openly criticized the American X-47B drones and the F-35 "invisible" fighters.

    “He is perplexed by eu exit.”, “Dai-2000 noted,” “Mr Raptor pointed out,” “wrote Halken” - I wonder who it is intended for, for an audience of 10 to 14 years old?

    "A huge step forward Russian"

    Yes, for us ... this is, perhaps, a "huge step forward," because Russia has so far been in this direction at the “zero option” level ... - And as for the world practice of the long and widespread use of all kinds of “drones” and “drones” .., Russia is clearly not “ahead of the rest” ...
    And here is what ... - a demonstration of "synchronized swimming" ??? - The pilot of the Su-57 controls the “Hunter” through the “joystick” ... or the “Hunter” simply duplicates the control ... in parallel with the control of the Su-57 ..... - Again, it all comes down to “air acrobatics” ...
    - And what is the "technical engineering breakthrough" ... ??? - The distance between them is quite small ... - if they shoot at them, they will fall ... - if not in one, then in the other ...
    - Yes, and imported parts, which is that in another - a whole bunch ... - And where are the domestic cool electronic warfare and AFAR and the latest Russian air-to-air missiles (they still can’t bring to mind) ???
    - Everything, as before ... - only to the public ... - ... Alas ..

      The fact that "close distances" ... yes, I agree that "work for the public." But I don’t see anything bad, because there was a specific task to "take a picture" of everything, in order then to "please the opponents." But this does not mean that control is not possible at longer distances. As for the control modes, it is possible to use different control modes. At the stage of entering the combat mission area, it is advisable to use the automatic transmission of control commands: “do as I do” (duplication of the Su-57 control); and when performing a combat mission with a drone, the "joystick" mode should be turned on, as you say ... Moreover, "by and large", this is where the AI ​​is needed, because the Su-57 pilot should not control every movement of the drone ... it must run the appropriate program on the drone to perform certain maneuvers ... that is, the UAV computer controls a certain maneuver by executing the "program". And only in the most crucial moments, the Su-57 pilot can take control of the UAV completely.

      No, not a joystick, the pilot was lying there. Especially for you.

      Russia is the second largest UAV in the world after the United States. Is this saying something? After all, just a few years ago we did not have them, from the word at all. I remember the time when we rejoiced in every released airplane and helicopter! And the fact that we do not have this, there is no other, so we are not Americans when they advertise their dummy, but in the end it turns out pah-pah! We do not advertise, but I think that there is something to surprise our "partners".

      Madame ... (mademoiselle), that’s the whole trick that an INDEPENDENT JOINT flight was performed - the drone is equipped with artificial intelligence and carries out the flight INDEPENDENTLY, but in TEAM - in other words. For the first time in the history of mankind, a robot independently performs a combat (albeit training) task paired with a fighter! - this is precisely the meaning of the phrase “technical engineering breakthrough”. If God did not give you understanding technical information - so do not disgrace, cook soup, in the end!

      Don’t be killed like that, Irina ... everything will be fine ... time will pass and this spark will prove its effectiveness in the same way as our rusty Russian tanks proved, smashing all enemies on the battlefield.

    Do not lie! Do not try to throw products of your life on the fan - it does not give you charm! In the technology adopted by the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation ABSOLUTELY FORBIDDEN use of imported components! All defense products contain components of ONLY DOMESTIC production!

    A true patriot looks the truth in the eye, and does not push pink blurs.

    Already, the USSR never publicized its developments and their implementation, and all normal people are well aware that in the 80s the robot not only flew into space, but also sat on the airfield. Not to mention other Soviet robots that have worked on Venus and other celestial bodies.
    The fact that the tidy reality for 10 years in a series of "have no analogues in the world" does not start, says only one thing.

    You, sorry, have garbage in your head. In the first flights, the new device is always accompanied by another aircraft. This is necessary for visual control, photo and video recording. The fact that the T-50 was pushed between these two objects is pure window dressing aimed at weak minds.
    Until all the “left” technological air intakes, “wings”, “antennas” and other “body kit” of the developer disappear from the drone, and then its real engine does not appear and is run-in, no flights paired with another (especially under-rolled) aircraft - do not have practical meaning. This is a dumb PR move.

    Obviously, one of you is the same opponent in the dispute as the “aviator”.

    You have the most "waste products in the brain." You, by the way, do not confuse the USSR and the Russian Federation !? Everything has long been wrong. Moreover, even finished equipment is purchased. Capitalism - it is like that, its own pocket is primary, and social needs are not taken into account at all!
    The same car, bashfully called the Lynx, is the Iveco LMV M65 Lynx.

    The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation purchased 60 Italian armored vehicles.

    But will the thousands of Russian “elites” allow a crushing blow by Russian miracle weapons to the territories of Russia's geopolitical enemies ?! After all, it is no secret to anyone that it is there, in the supportive (to them) “civilized west” that all the national wealth of the country that they deduced, for 30 years of domination in Russia, are located! Their families prosper there. They study and have fun, multiply and engage in profitable business. Therefore, their reaction to the good intention of delivering a blow to the territory of the bloodsucker, the aggressor and the enemy of Russia is easy to foresee! Is it possible that the “elite” of collaborationists will allow the development of events according to this scenario ?! And with what then will they remain in a ruined and alien Russia, with bows of St. George ribbons on their chest? And they need it, without innumerable wealth, undoubtedly "acquired by hard and honest labor" in Russia, but stored in the "West" ?!
