Retired American officer Brent Eastwood praised the new Russian attack drone S-70B Okhotnik. It is reported by RIA Novosti.

The source notes that the S-70B drone will be equipped with an AL-41F1 turbojet turbojet engine, which will be able to provide a flight range of up to six thousand kilometers.

Brent Eastwood specifically noted the ability of the attack drone to strengthen the combat aircraft thanks to a special mode in which it can be used as part of a joint combat unit with the fifth generation Su-57 fighter.

The American noted that this mode will allow you to turn on up to four Hunter drones that will fly ahead of the fighter for warning, guidance and strikes on the ground. The source reports that this mode of joint operation of the S-70B and Su-57 was successfully tested back in 2019.

In addition to performing combat missions, the S-70B can be useful for intelligence gathering, the source notes.

Brent Eastwood noted that the “Hunter” will significantly strengthen the Russian army.
