“Under the test program, a long-duration flight time UCAV Okhotnik has performed its first flight,” the defense ministry said in a press release. “The first flight took place at 12.20 Moscow time and lasted for over 20 minutes. The aerial vehicle flown by the operator made several circles around the airfield at an altitude of 600 meters and then successfully landed.”
