    Venezuela receives more Chinese K-8 trainers

    The Venezuelan Air Force (Aviación Militar Bolivariana de Venezuela) in late February received six Hongdu K-8W jet trainers for its Grupo Aéreo de Operaciones Especiales N 15 based at Maracaibo, IHS Jane's has learned.

    The aircraft are to replace three lost in accidents and are part of a batch of nine purchased in 2013, with the other three expected to arrive soon in Venezuela, sources told IHS Jane's on 14 March.

    Originally, Venezuela received 18 K-8Ws from January 2010 for N 15 and the Grupo Aéreo de Caza N 12 at Barquisimeto. For Grupo 12 the K-8Ws replaced the Northrop VF-5A Freedom Fighter and for Grupo 15 they replaced the Boeing (Rockwell) OV-10 Bronco, performing advanced training, light attack, and operations against illegal flights.

    Ooh god, so many good hardware, a pity that the biggest threat to Venezuela is internal social/political upheaval, in a few years we're gonna see a lot of pics of U.S inspectors analyzing these, poor Flanker and Antey-2500.

    So, according to Reuters, in the arsenal of the Venezuelan army there are 5000 9M342 missiles of portable 9K338 SAMs "Igla-S", purchased in Russia in the 2000s. And this is the largest known arsenal of these weapons in Latin America.
