Russia’s prototype stealth drone to make its first flight

Graphic News

June 4, 2019 -- Russia’s prototype stealth drone is due to make its maiden flight in July or August. The Sukhoi S-70 Okhotnik (Hunter) will be fully autonomous and follow a pre-programmed flight path, according to Russian news agency TASS.

The S-70 uses a flat “flying wing” design similar in shape to the U.S. Air Force's B-2 stealth bomber, and is reportedly designed to perform reconnaissance and strike missions.

The first flight, due to take place at Sukhoi’s Novosibirsk aviation plant, could signal the start of a long development process potentially ending with the Russian air force operating fighter-style stealth drones, according to U.S.-based journal The National Interest.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
