"Okhotnik is planned to be integrated with the target sight optoelectronic systems of the fixed-wing/rotor-wing aircraft and other sophisticated military equipment. The system is intended for the electronic stabilization of the images and the detection/tracking of targets in automatic mode. Okhotnik increases the range of target acquisition in harsh environment by 50-100%," a KRET`s spokesperson said.

According to him, the Concern has developed over 15 variants of the Okhotnik system intended for Mi-28N 'Night Hunter' (NATO reporting name: Havoc-B), Mi-8/17 (Hip/Hip-H), and Ka-52 (Hokum-B) rotor-wing aircraft, Sukhoi multirole fighter jets, naval guns, anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) systems, and self-propelled anti-aircraft gun-missile systems (SPAAGM).

"The KRET Concern is developing video data processing hardware intended for an optoelectronic station of the PAK FA fifth-generation fighter," the official emphasized.
