In strikes to match the U.S. navy, experiments are aimed toward producing blended air regiments which are tied right into a wider battlefield community.
The USA isn’t the one nation working to pair fighter jets with heavy drones. Russia is trying to carry collectively its superior Sukhoi Su-57 fighter and its S-70 Okhotnik heavy reconnaissance and strike drone in blended air regiments, in response to Russian information outlet Izvestia.
The Su-57, first flown in 2010, is Russia’s most superior fighter. Russia expects to have 76 of them by 2028, in response to CNA analyst Sam Bendett.
The S-70 Okhotnik remains to be in improvement. The 2 had been “ designed as interoperable so far as their weapons methods go, and their communications,” stated Bendett.
