Above are the first pictures of the new Russian Sukhoi-Ochotnik heavy UAV "Hunter" unmanned combat air vehicle (UCAV) manufactured at the Novosibirsk Aviation Plant. Officially dubbed the URBK (Udarno-Razvedyvatelnyi Bespilotnyi Kompleks) which translates to Strike-Reconnaissance Unmanned Complex. Somewhat similar to the US X-47B or the X-45C. It appears to be a "Flying Wing" scheme craft of ~20 tons with a speed [Russian spec] in excess of 1000 km / h. It has a stealthy appearance and looks like a turbofan engine. The “Hunter” was characterized as a “6th generation unmanned aerial vehicle”, and part of its systems are unified with the Su-57 fighter systems.
