Akinci UCAV ammunition test flight, dropping three different version of the MAM family: MAM-C, MAM-L and the new and bigger MAM-T with a range 30+km from UCAV's to 80+ for fighter jets.  

Okhotnik UAV first flight  

Higher efficiency at the cost of thrust. It seems to indicate optimisation for long duration, level flight.

   From TV news report about Russian UAVs - S-70 "Hunter". Currently is being piloted by human using manual controls, in future will be changed to automatic flight system. Already capable of receiving targeting data from Su-57 and engaging them, according to test pilot.

   That one is interesting - Orion UAV in strike modification with about 30-40 real combat missions. Stars show number of flights with "B" (Б) meaning combat (strike) flight and "R" (Р) is recon. I also saw one with "P" (П), video didn't explained it. Patrol, maybe?

   There was also videos of real strikes, but few of them and they were hard to see. One thing i noticed was use of retro iron bomb in one of the videos, lol.

   Kalashnikov concern designed KYB suicide drone going to finish trails this year.

   State tests of the KYB combat unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) developed by ZALA Aero (part of the Kalashnikov group of companies of the Rostec state corporation) will be completed in 2021. This was reported to TASS during the IDEX-2021 international arms exhibition in the Kalashnikov press service.

 

   “KYB was shown in the UAE two years ago, during this time preliminary tests were completed, letter O was assigned. This year it is planned to complete state tests,” the press service informed.

 

   As noted in Kalashnikov, an export-oriented modification of the UAV, designated KYB-E, is under development. "This work is also planned to be completed this year," the press service said.

 

   The new strike UAV is already showing interest in the world arms market. “There is interest in the product from the countries of the Middle East, but before the export version of KYB appears, it’s premature to talk about negotiations,” the Kalashnikov officials noted.

   Combat UAV of "kamikaze" type KYB was first presented at the international arms exhibition IDEX-2019.

   Houthis showed their new suicide drone with claimed max range of 2500 km.

The engine on the Yemeni kamikaze drone is identified (Fig. 1) as the Iranian Mado MD550 aircraft engine (Fig. 2), a complete analogue of the German Limbach L550ef.

   Soviet attack UAV - Korshun-V

Wasn's the Korshun-V designed only during 90'? The base UAV is Soviet but I think the strike variant is newer. 

 

Anyway, do you have an idea where it was combat used? Chechnya?

   Tu-300 Korshun was in development in 1980s, first UAV build in 1990 and first flight taking place in 1991. It is Soviet UAV, but used by Russian forces because of timeline.

   Most likely yes, Chechnya was probably place of use. IMO during first Chechen war.
