Any more news?

He was my North, my South, my East and West,
My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thought that love would last forever; I was wrong.
...
For nothing now can ever come to any good.

Pay attention to these two cameras and black antennas.

The US still doesn't acknowledge operating a stealthy strike UAV, but it appears Russia's version of a flying wing UCAV just broke cover during runway testing in Novosibirsk. Behold, the unofficial first image of the Okhotnik ("Hunter"). https://t.co/uaEXqPdyBF https://t.co/Qm2A3FMSZb

I'm well aware that the camouflage in question intentionally forms the silhouette of a smaller, flying wing aircraft.  However, that pattern would be very counter-product in terms of modern optical detection.  The sharp 90 angles and stark differences in shade would make contrast detection very easy for any electro-optical sensor.
