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.
