Okhotnik-B, the Russian combat drone took off for its first flight on August 3. Russia's Armed Forces showcased the UAV, releasing a video of its first flight. The Aviationist reported that on August 8.
The first blurry images of the Okhotnik-B drone appeared on Jan. 23, 2019 on a Russian aviation website. The photos depict a tractor towing the apparently roughly 50-foot-wide unmanned aerial vehicle along a snow-ringed runway at an airfield in Novosibirsk in southern Russia.
Watch the video from the Russian Defense Ministry's Youtube channel:
Okhotnik is in the same class as China's Tian Ying drone, the U.S. Air Force's RQ-170 surveillance unmanned aerial vehicle, the U.S. Navy's experimental X-47B UAV and Boeing's X-45C drone demonstrator.
