The Ohotnik project’s budget is 1.6 billion RUR [about 26.6 million USD].

        Since 1980 Russia is in fight with US, NATO and Israeli backed snipers terrorists but President Putin and the Syrian war gave a new strength to Russia. Due to which Russia emerged a new global power.

      • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

        That’s the Syrian Army not Russian Troops as they have been there since Sept. 2015 and Iran’s been there since 2013 but have been fighting terrorism for decade longer than Russia.

      • Mike

        Then fuck off ass wipe. Go suck solomon kupecs dick, since all you kikes are fags, momas boys and pedophiles.

  • grumpy_carpenter

    Looks like the RQ-170 the Iranians captured in 2011 is bearing fruit.

    I wonder if the ease at which the Russians / Syrians dealt with last Aprils F.UK.US cruise missile attack might also have something to do with what was learned from from the captured drone?

  • Wise Gandalf

    paper maiden

    • Mike

      He kazarian shit stain, the Russ crushed you a millennia ago, get over it, when you become a Jew you become a pathetic neurotic cowardly psychopath that cant over the past. What shit religion or cult you come from solomon kupec.

  • Kell McBanned

    Looks like Russia may be making up for lost time quickly closing its drone gap, cheap project also.
