UAVs have been used extensively during the war on terror in Syria. Robotic drones were mostly used for reconnaissance, intelligence and determining targets that enabled warplanes to be more precise in combat.
Russia recently unveiled the new jet-powered robot warplane, the Okhotnik, a stealth aircraft that is difficult to detect by radar.
The robotic warplane “Okhotnik” can fly long distances at speeds of up to 1000 kilometers per hour. It weighs 20 tons, and can stay in the air for 12 to 24 hours.
