Probably not terribly interesting by adding it anyway, another illustration of Proryv UAV's from a recent PDF, April 2015;

Some really promising designs here!

also found this Link -

http://www.techworm.net/2015/07/russian-rostec-develops-the-worlds-first-uav-with-air-cushion-speed-of-100-kmph.html

Although im quite well versed in UAV/RPV terminology, im having a bit of a problem getting my head around this 'Air Cushion Speed' - possibly talking about the WIG effect?

Edit : - Perhaps this image found on the Rostec website is the UAV in question? if so it does sound like they refer to the WIG effect, looking at the shape of the wings and fuselage.

Hi,

please read this statement;

http://www.mrdrone.net/history-of-drones/
SECRET PROJECTS
The USSR also developed a number of reconnaissance drones, though since many programs the Soviets pursued were cloaked in secrecy, details of these aircraft are unclear and contradictory.

T-50-3 begins flight testing of Okotnik's subsystems:

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.

Then VPK ordered to stop the UAV efforts, and all that stuff passed away, except Tupolev's Strizh and Yakovlev's Pchela.
