    Russian aircraft maker Sukhoi is to focus on creating reconnaissance and strike unmanned air vehicles in the near future, United Aircraft Corporation President Mikhail Pogosyan said at the Zhuhai Airshow China exhibition on Tuesday.

    Sukhoi, which has historically designed fighter and ground attack aircraft but now also builds some civil aircraft, is part of UAC, a holding covering most of Russia's aircraft industry.

    "UAVs are a strategic avenue for development for UAC, and Sukhoi is focused on creating reconnaissance and strike UAVs. But our firm plans on this are in the future," he said.

    Previous UAVs created for Russia's amed forces have been produced by Tranzas and Sokol, in addition to Sukhoi.
