There are potentially two new UAVs of interest for ATS' aircraft geeks.

The first is just a slide. And it might be a photoshop, so reader beware. However, the Russians are supposedly touting it at their stealthy UAV to answer the Americans. The aircraft? It's entitled the "Hunter-B."

However, it really, really ought to be noted it's only appeared here. I also have to wonder if they took a picture of the two Salty Dogs and dropped it in to their slide. However, I am ALSO part of the crew that argues form follows function and they might have come to the conclusion like we Yanqi that the cranked kite is a good shape for stealthy aircraft. So, oh so good imagery analysts of ATS-AP, take a gander and opine.


The second UAV, the so-called AR-10, is a derivative of the forward swept wing SR-10 trainer that was being developed. There are differences: a single inlet and a V-shaped twin tail. Oh and no cockpit, of course. It's intended for combat air patrol (!!) and strike. I have a feeling the former might be a little over ambitious for the Russians, but I have been wrong before and will be again.

This might be more a pipe dream than the Hunter-B. We shall see.

When we see them being complained about being behind schedule or having them suffer difficulties in somewhere like Ukraine or Syria then they are just pipe dreams at moment.They are like China waaay behind the times.

Looking at all these UAV designs I wonder how much of the tech is ours that was hacked.

Getting the airframe together is easy.Throwing all the systems in is what is the problem.Need to look at what Russia has available for sensor packages.

Just realized, the front of the AR-10 looks an awful lot like something Kratos would make.

The one in this www.airrecognition.com...
image looks a lot like the New trainer they have made. And it even flew at MAKS this year.

Here it is CP-10 (SR-10)
