    Sokol starts deliveries of Yak-130 combat trainers to Russian AF
    RIA Novosti

    13/08/200919:22

    NIZHNY NOVGOROD, August 13 (RIA Novosti) - Sokol, a Nizhny Novgorod-based aircraft maker, has started deliveries of new Yak-130 combat trainers to the Russian Air Force, the company said on Thursday.

    The Yak-130 single-seat aircraft can be used as a light strike aircraft or as a trainer for fourth and fifth generation fighters. With its production line launched in May 2003, the plane is also being marketed for export.

    "We delivered the first Yak-130 in late July, and it will be showcased at the MAKS-2009 air show [on August 18-23 near Moscow]," said Alexander Karezin, Sokol's general director.

    In April 2002, the Yak-130 was chosen as a basic aircraft for Russian Air Force pilot training. Under an initial contract with the Defense Ministry, Sokol will deliver a total of 12 Yak-130s by the end of 2010.

    The Russian Air Force is planning to commission about 200 Yak-130s to equip four air regiments in the future.

    The Yak-130 is a highly maneuverable aircraft with an extended range of about 2,000 kilometers (1,250 miles) and a maximum speed of 1,060 km/h (600 m/h) in level flight. It can carry a combat payload of up to 3,000 kg (6,600 pounds), consisting of a variety of Russian and Western developed weapons.

    According to Russian Air Force commander, Col. Gen. Alexander Zelin, the first Yak-130 trainers will be used for pilot training at the Krasnodar Military Flight School.

    Russia will also start deliveries of 16 Yak-130s to Algeria in 2010.

    Training and fighting competition
    19.08.2009

    Training and combat aircraft Yak-130 - a rare example, after the collapse of the Soviet Union created a new military aircraft coming into production: the first series of Yak-130 for the Defense Ministry had already assembled. With the new aircraft and OKB Yakovlev Corporation Irkut "count up to 50% of the world market with capacity 4,5 thousand cars.

    MiG against Яка

    Few of the projects of new aircraft in the Soviet aircraft industry came to the stage of mass production. Training and combat aircraft Yak-130 can be such a rare example. The plane began to design in January 1991 when the name of OKB Yakovlev engaged to participate in the Competition Defense to develop training package for military pilots. By this time, the main training aircraft of Soviet Air Force was Czechoslovak L-39 - in the Soviet Union flew around 2 thousand of these machines. But by the end of the 1980's L-39 is outdated. For further developed in the 1960's trainer aircraft has been impossible to absorb a fourth-generation fighters, and before L-39 began to develop the resource. In the competition for the right to develop the new machines, announced in late 1990, in addition to OKB Yakovlev design bureau Sukhoi participated, Mikoyan and Myasischeva. Before the production came only two projects out of four - the Yak-130, developed jointly with the Italian trainer aircraft manufacturer Aermacchi, and MiG-AT OKB Mikoyan name, created with the participation of the French Snecma and Turbomeca. Experimental models of both aircraft performed its first flight in 1996, they became parties to tender for the Russian Air Force training aircraft. MiG-AT has a good chance to win, but the aircraft was planned to equip the French engines and avionics. Yak-120 in the original version also flew on the engine, DV-2C, the rights to which belong Slovakian manufacturer Povazske Strojarne, but the plane already in the series, it was decided to install the engine AI-222-25, developed Zaporizhzhya MBC "Ivchenko-Progress" (final assembly of motor MMPs produced in Moscow "Cheers").

    In 2002, Russian military aircraft have summed up the tender for the main training and combat aircraft, announcing the winner of the Yak-130, deeming it a great advantage of thrust-to-weight and high maneuverability. An important factor was that the Yak-130, as opposed to purely trainer MiG-AT, originally created as a training and combat, able to take part in hostilities. In such a plane in the early 2000's and needed the Russian Air Force. In addition, the design of the machine was taken into account the possibility of establishing on the basis of light striking the aircraft.

    By 2002, the OKB Yakovlev three years engaged in the project independently. In 1999, when it came to concrete negotiations on deliveries of the aircraft air forces of Russia and European countries (this was the aim of the project Aermacchi), the Russian bureau had to go away with an Italian partner. Aermacchi purchased from OKB Yakovlev Yak-130 documentation and based on it made a very similar aircraft of its own M-346 Master. Company entered into an informal agreement on the division of markets for their cars: Yakovlev Design Bureau was given to the markets of CIS countries and the traditional markets of Soviet weapons, and Aermacchi - NATO countries.

    Project MiG-AT, after the defeat of the Russian Air Force tender received little further development. Since the late 1990's airplane OKB Mikoyan interested in a number of foreign clients, including Venezuela, as well as, according to BG, United Arab Emirates, and even Poland. But beyond the preliminary negotiations, the case has not gone: the lack of state orders MiG-AT by the Russian armed forces discouraged potential customers.

    First in the sky

    Russian Air Force took the first tentative order for the production of Yak-130 in 2002. The first flight version was constructed at the Nizhny Novgorod plant "Sokol" and made its first flight in 2004. In 2005, the Defense Ministry had signed a firm contract for the supply of the installation of a series of 12 aircraft - they were to be delivered in 2006-2007. Subsequently, the contract was extended until 2010. Implementation of orders has slowed significantly occurred in 2006, the first loss of the Yak-130: one of three built aircraft crashed during a test flight. At an altitude of 12 km pilots lost control of a plane, they had to shoot, but the machine was lost.

    Production of the aircraft was instructed to Nizhny Novgorod Aircraft "Sokol" (in forming the United Aircraft Corporation plant entered its composition), which built and experimental samples. However, the "Falcon" will be gathered only that the first batch of machines - in the future production is planned to move to Irkutsk Aircraft owned by a corporation Irkut in 2002 was also the owner of OKB Yakovlev. Originally the Irkutsk factory supplied for the Yak-130 wing only. The contract for the 12 Yak-130 Russian Air Force has not yet been extended, but the plane is included in the State Arms Program Russia for 2007-2015, which is scheduled to supply 60 machines to 2015. In the long term need in the Air Force Yak-130 experts Irkut "estimate of 300 cars.

    Since the beginning of the crisis in the market began to appear from time to time rumors of problems with financing and possible disruption of the timing of order MoD. In Irkut "assure that the order is executed on schedule. In early August, "Sokol said that the first serial aircraft built for the Air Force, assembled and already in the process of putting the customer. However, doubts about the course of ordering the Air Force was a manufacturer of engines: the President "Motor Sich" Vyacheslav Boguslav said that the Defense Ministry stopped funding the program Yak-130 because of lack of funds in the budget - in the warehouses "Motor Sich" has already accumulated 22 sets of engines of the AI - 222-25, and another 10 - to Moscow's "Salute". At the same time, according to Mr Boguslaeva, forced the MoD to extend the life of the existing L-39. "Irkut" immediately rushed to refute the information: the corporation has announced that funding for the Yak-130 program from the Defense Ministry of Russia is in full accordance with the schedule and all of the installation of aircraft engines are provided. BG in Irkut "reaffirmed that the funding is discontinued and the supply will run on schedule.

    At the MAKS-2009 the Yak-130 will be presented in two versions: one aircraft configuration for the Russian Air Force, and one - in the export version, with instruments, graded in the British system of measures. Yak-130 was created in the expectation of large export orders, this has contributed to and co-operation "Yakovlev" with the Italians. Including, and therefore the designers decided to go towards a training combat aircraft: the world market purely training machines every year, demand is less. While the success of Yak-130 on the international market compared with the achievements on the home: there is one order for 16 aircraft for Air Algeria. The contract was signed in 2006 during a visit to Algeria, the president of Russia Vladimir Putin. Implementation of the Algerian contract immediately got Irkutsk Aircraft. In June, Le Bourget, which also exhibited the Yak-130, the president of Irkut "Oleg Demchenko said that 6 of the 16 aircraft will be delivered to Algeria in 2010.

    Algeria is still the only foreign customers of Yak-130. However, in Irkut "say that during 2008-2009, the corporation has already received over 200 pre-applications for aircraft. The volume of the world market for training aircraft in Irkut estimated at 4.5 thousand. The Corporation expects that the Air Force in 2010, world's will in the active fleet replacement training machines, most of which are outdated and do not meet the requirements of training pilots for fighter aircraft and five "4 +" generation.

    Manual Fifth Generation

    Most trainer aircraft, is now facing the world's armed forces, in fact developed the latest in 80 years. Along with the Czech L-39 (they still are in service of the Air Force, previously served as members of the Warsaw Pact) is based fleet of military training aircraft make up the British BAE Hawk (flying about 900 copies), the American T-38 (more than 1 thousand .) and the German-French Alpha Jet. Even at the end of last century, the most serious potential competitor to the Yak-130 in export markets was considered a Hawk. But in recent years the British aircraft takes the position, despite its strengths - reliability and availability of a large number of modifications. In March, one of the largest operators Hawk, the Indian Air Force to desist from further purchases of aircraft, referring to problems with spare parts and service - before such a story with a Hawk could not even imagine.

    Of course, not all competitors Yak-130 obsolete. In the countries of NATO strong his "double" Italian M-346. Aermacchi in 2003, joined the company Alenia Aeronautica, a 2008 m-marketing agreement entered into with the American Boeing, providing for joint promotion of M-346. In the next decade, the company will be able to jointly participate in the tender for the replacement of more than 500 T-38 training in the U.S. Air Force armament. Rival M-346 in the Americas tender is likely to be yet another new generation of aircraft - T-50, developed by the South Korean Korea Aerospace Industries in conjunction with the American Lockheed Martin. Both aircraft received major orders from the Air Force of their native countries - Italy and South Korea. The first time these cars met in a tender for the delivery of 48 training aircraft to the UAE at the beginning of the year. Won the M-346. A third aircraft, which in theory could become a competitor for the Yak-130 - Chinese L-15, he, like the M-346, has much in common with the Russian plane. Chinese advice OKB Yakovlev, they used the same engine Ukrainian AI-222-25, only needed for supersonic speeds forced update. And finally, the fourth potential competitor - Czech L-159T1, created on the basis of L-39.

    More on all of the Yak-130 on performance, not surprisingly, like Italian M-346, although it is expensive ($ 15-20 million to $ 10-15 million for the Yak-130). In Irkut "recall agreement OKB Yakovlev with Alenia Aermacchi, under which the Yak-130 can not be sold to the countries of NATO, M-346 - in the CIS countries. But in third countries between the patterns of spread of competition. Both aircraft are participating in the tender for the supply of training and combat aircraft in India. In some markets the dignity of M-346 - the standards of NATO and a good engine - can lead to defects: not all countries want to buy a plane with American parts. The second aircraft, which could become a competitor for subsonic Yak-130 - an inexpensive Czech L-159 - are not experiencing the best of times: due to low demand for aircraft of the previous generation, and uncertainties with the maintenance of the production model is now frozen, while in the Czech Republic, laid a small aircraft bloom.

    Korean T-50 called a direct competitor of the Yak-130 is even harder: the aircraft was created specifically for the maneuvers at supersonic speeds and has the appropriate specificity - the high cost (more than $ 20 million) and higher fuel consumption: about three times greater than that of the Yak-130. Chinese L-15 supersonic aircraft, too. His prospects still difficult to assess because of the time the program trainer aircraft of China lags behind competitors: flight-tested the new model began only in 2006, and the question of mass production machinery is not yet clear. In Irkut "notes that the reputation of the Chinese aircraft industry leaves much to be desired, as is Chinese aircraft about the same as Russian.

    Given the situation on the market, "Irkut" is called a strategic goal to take to the Yak-130 and 50% of the world market. Obviously, the political and military reasons, some markets (for example, the majority of NATO countries) will be closed for the Russian aircraft. The priority markets for a corporation called Russia, CIS, Asia, Africa, Latin America. The example of Algeria shows that the main clients are the CIS countries and the traditional importers of Soviet and Russian weapons - Developing countries that were in the Soviet sphere of influence. At the same time, it is clear that to gain such a large market share need to move the aircraft to third countries. Therefore, the nearest big test for the Yak-130 will be tender to supply 56 training aircraft the Indian Air Force, announced in March. Offer to participate in the tender received and OKB Yakovlev, and almost all of its competitors: Alenia Aeronautica with the M-346, Korean Aerospace Industries with T-50, a Czech Aero Vodochody with L-159, BAE Systems Hawk, and even with the Mikoyan Design Bureau with the MiG - AT.

    What is a Yak-130

    Two training-combat aircraft Yak-130 is designed for training pilots of tactical aircraft. The aircraft is a monoplane with the classical scheme sredneraspolozhennym arrow wing and horizontal tail tselnopovorotnym. Developed before the influx of the wing provide the opportunity for sustained controlled flight angles of attack up to 40 °. He is one of the main components of training complex that includes also an integrated system of objective control, teaching computer classes, procedures, and specialized flight simulators. According to aerodynamic design and flight performance subsonic flight of Yak-130 is similar to modern jet fighters. Reprogrammable system Yak-130 allows you to simulate virtually any existing aircraft generation "4 +" and "5", both Russian and foreign production. Characterized by high autonomy-based, including the ground airfields.

    In Irkutsk, first flew export Yak-130
    24/08/2009

    Combat training aircraft Yak-130, manufactured for foreign customers at the Irkutsk Aviation Plant, August 21, first took to the air. It is reported by the press office of the corporation Irkut, which is a branch of the company. For what it is intended that the state machine - is not specified.

    During lasted about forty minutes of the flight were validated flight and technical characteristics of the Yak-130 at different altitudes and speeds, maneuverability, stability control, the functioning of all systems, as well as the work of the powerplant. Piloted vehicle test pilots noted that "during the flight, all systems operate normally."

    According to the press service of Irkut, built at an aircraft factory export Yak-130 "was created with the integrated use of digital technologies at all stages of design and production preparation. This, as stressed, reduced complexity, reduced cycle times, improve product quality and create a modern framework for large-scale production machines.

    Recall that according to a recent statement by the President Irkut Corporation Oleg Demchenko, Russia has received applications for 150 cars Yak-130, in addition to existing firm orders. The former includes 62 airplanes, which ordered Air Force of Russia, as well as 16 other vehicles for the Algerian army. Yak-130 is also seen as a potential tenderer Indian Air Force, in which Delhi intends to purchase 56 aircraft.

    Irkut estimated the power of aircraft plant
    01/09/2009

    assembly Yak-130

    Irkutsk Aviation Plant (IAZ) intends to issue an annual 36 Yak-130, worth $ 10-15 million each. Irkut Corporation, which includes IAZ, evaluates the market capacity of training and combat aircraft in the 250 units before 2015. Analysts say that the calculations Irkut's true: the plane will need to Asian countries for training of pilots flying the Su-30.

    Irkut president Oleg Demchenko, and vice-premier Sergei Ivanov yesterday visited the Irkutsk Aircraft Plant (part of the aviakorporatsii), which examined the assembly of the first Yak-130. For IAZa a new kind of product: Until recently, the plant was producing multi-purpose Su-30 in various versions and amphibious aircraft Be-200. The preparation of the Irkutsk aircraft plant to build combat-capable trainer aircraft Irkut for three years has spent $ 120 million, said yesterday Oleg Demchenko.

    In August IAZ proceeded to assemble the first batch of 16 Yak-130 for the Algerian Air Force under a contract signed in 2007. Until the end of this year IAZ gather for Algeria, six planes, and from next year the plant will assemble three Yak-130 a month, said Mr. Demchenko. He estimated that there are more than 2,5 thousand combat-capable aircraft. Subject to the annual demand for the cancellation of aircraft Yak-130 until 2015 will be 250 machines, considered Oleg Demchenko. Earlier in an interview with Kommersant, he said that the Yak-130 can be supplied not only in Russia, but India, Malaysia and Mexico.

    Yak-130 developed by Yakovlev Design Bureau. Yakovlev and is designed to educate and improve the skills of pilots flying the Su-30, MiG-29, F-16. The aircraft is equipped with two turbojet engines and can carry up to 3 tons of combat payload. The maximum range of Yak-130 without additional fuel tanks - 2 thousand km, service ceiling - 12,5 km, the maximum speed - 1 thousand km / h. The cost of a Yak-130 - $ 10-15 million Irkut Corporation controlled United Aircraft Corporation. Net profit Irkut for 2008 - 315.7 million rubles.

    Currently, the Yak-130 is also going in Nizhny Novgorod (the order of 12 machines) in the distribution of the KLA orders between Russia's factories, but, according to a source of Kommersant with the Aircraft Corp., a contract for the Defense of the Yak-130 is likely to future is fully handed over to the assembly on IAZ, as this plant has a more modern technical equipment and better "Falcon" is prepared for its construction

    Analyst IR BKS Sebastian Kozitsin said that its closest competitors Yak-130 on the external market are aircraft Hawk (British Aerospace, UK) and M346 (draft Aermacchi, Italy). However, according to analyst at Russia's model theoretically should be an advantage in price. Analyst IK Aton Michael Pak said that the calculations Irkut to 250 aircraft by 2015 in principle, correct. "First, the Yak-130 will likely be trained pilots Asian countries that have already purchased Su (Yak-130 accurately simulates their behavior. -" Y "). Secondly, the plane can buy in Europe -- Irkut says it can provide the Yak-130 necessary for learning software "- notes the analyst.

This contract was the result of extensive work carried out meticulously corporation Irkut in conjunction with MTC and FS Rosoboronexport - South said, adding that to solve local problems of the Yak-130 fits better than the heavy supersonic fighters, because it is cheaper to maintain, and can take off from ground airfields.

    Export versions of the Yak-130 yet to be made only at the Irkutsk aircraft factory.

    "In Irkutsk, a fully refurbished with the latest technology aircraft factory, is a full-scale production of these aircraft, which will allow the end of 2010 to enter the production of up to three units a month - they are very good indicators" - said vice-president of the corporation. According to him, is now in the shops is more than five Yak-130 in various stages of production.

    Combat training aircraft Yak-130 is designed to Yakovlev, part of the corporation Irkut. The aircraft is designed for both training and combat training of pilots and combat use in simple and adverse weather conditions for air and ground targets. The total combat load in nine sites external suspension may reach 3 thousand pounds.

    Advanced Aerodynamics, its avionics a new generation, advanced onboard systems and power plant provides high efficiency of training and combat use, high safety, low cost per flight hour, and the life cycle.

    Aircraft performance and maneuvering characteristics of the Yak-130 similar to that of modern fighters to subsonic flight.

    Currently, the corporation Irkut performs a prisoner in 2006, a contract for the supply of Yak-130 Algeria. Are being pre-contract negotiations for the supply of Yak-130 has a number of countries in the world.

    Irkut is considering a second Yak-130 line, due to the recent domestic and export orders.
    I am curious what this means for Sokol, who produced the first batch of Yak-130s for the RuAF.

    Bangladesh Govt is planning to spend a lot of money to modernize its Military.

    A perfect replacement for their aging Nanchang Q-5 fleet. The Yak-130 could carry the same payload has the A-5s could.


    Bangladesh Eyeing Purchase Of 10 Russian Yak-130 Aircraft

    Dhaka, Feb 15 (bdnes24.com) -- Bangladesh is eyeing possible purchase of 10 Russian-made Yak-130 lead-in fighter trainer aircraft, a news report said on Wednesday.
    Russia's official news agency Itar-Tass in a Singapore-datelined report said on Wednesday that talks were at the initial stage.

    "Bangladesh has a big budget, more to it, a state loan might be used," president of Russia's aircraft building corporation Irkut Alexei Fyoforov was quoted as saying by the agency.

    Fyoforov reportedly said the market capacity for Yak-130 aircraft might reach 2,500 planes till the year 2020.

    "We hope to grip from 25 to 30 percent of this market," he was quoted as saying.

    The Yak-130 has the advantage of being a multirole aircraft.

    Obviously it can be used as a LIFT or lead in fighter trainer in the sense that it can directly replicate modern fighters, which means you can train pilots to fly a Mig-29 or Su-27 or Su-35 or Mig-35 in this aircraft so you no longer need to buy enough two seat trainers of your more expensive front line fighters.

    It can also carry a significant payload of sophisticated weapons that would allow it to be used in a light strike role or even light interceptor.

    Anyone know, if new Russian Yak-130 will be equipped with WASP radar, which was meant for YAK-130 from the beginning or only export planes could be equipped with them?

    I don't know for sure but I would expect their first priority would be to get these trainers into service so they replace the Delphins as quickly as possible.

    Of course for some training roles having a radar might be very useful so I would expect in time they might buy some aircraft equipped with radar, but for the most part I would think something like a Damocles targeting pod might be rather more useful as it would enable the aircraft to carry a wider range of weapons.

    With a helmet mounted sight it should be able to carry and use R-73 missiles and with the TV guided bombs it can use the bombs seeker to find and lock targets.

    Having a targeting pod like Bamocles or Sapsan it can find and target air and ground objects for engagement with TV and laser guided bombs as well as satellite guided bombs and rockets...

    In the future they might consider the single seat version or even the unmanned model for CAS, where they will use stand off weapons and sensors so armour and flying low are not so critical.

    Russia’s Yak-130 Joins Philippine Combat Trainer Tender

    Russia has decided to join a tender on the delivery of six light fighter jets to the Philippines with its new Yakovlev Yak-130 Mitten combat trainer, state-run arms exporter Rosoboronexport said on Wednesday.

    “We are taking part in the Philippine tender with the Yak-130 aircraft,” deputy general director of Rosoboronexport, Viktor Komardin, said at the Defense Services Asia-2012 arms show in Malaysia.

    The tender for six aircraft to replace the retired U.S.-built Northrop F-5A Tiger fighters was announced last year. The results will be made public in two to three months, the Russian official said. Two rival designs, the Italian Alenia Aermacchi M-346 and South Korea's KAI TA-50, are also competing in the tender

    The Philippines is a new market for Russian arms exporters. Manila used to order military equipment mainly from the United States.

    “We regard this tender as an opportunity to expand our influence in the region and to demonstrate the capabilities of our military equipment,” Komardin said.

    The Yak-130 is a highly maneuverable aircraft with an extended range of about 2,000 kilometers (1,250 miles) and a maximum speed of 1,060 km/h (600 m/h) in level flight. It can carry a combat payload of up to 3,000 kilograms (6,600 pounds), consisting of a variety of Russian and Western developed weapons.

    The Yak-130 has been chosen as a basic aircraft for Russian Air Force pilot training. First deliveries started in 2009.

    Irkut Plans Yak-130 Sensor Upgrade

    RIA Novosti

    Russian aircraft maker Irkut is planning a sensor-package upgrade program for the Yak-130 advanced jet trainer, including the installation of radar and electro-optical systems, Irkut head Alexei Fedorov said on Wednesday.
    "We plan to 'grow' the capabilities of this aircraft, fitting a radar and electro-optical, thermal and laser systems," Fedorov said. The upgrades are primarily to enable the aircraft to be used for advanced weapon training, he said, as well as combat roles.
    "Increasing the Yak-130's combat potential also allows it be potentially used in local conflict situations," he said.
    The Yak-130 is an advanced jet trainer, suitable for converting pilots to flying advanced fourth- and fifth-generation fighter aircraft. It has advanced "glass cockpit" multifunction cockpit displays, and is highly maneuverable. The aircraft is currently in production for the Russian Air Force, and a number of export customers including Algeria.
    Fedorov said Irkut would be ready to carry out a previousy signed contract with Syria for delivery of the Yak-130, if and when political approval was given. Russia has a $550-million contract with Syria for the delivery of 36 Yak-130s.
    "We'll be ready to fulfil the contract when we get an indication from the government," he said.
    Last week, on the sidelines of the Farnborough Air Show in Britain, the deputy head of Russia's military-technicial cooperation commission, Vyacheslav Dzirkaln, said Russia had decided to suspend the Yak-130 contract to Syria while the country was in a state of internal conflict.
    “Until the situation stabilizes, we will not deliver any new weapons [to Syria],” he said.
    Irkut will also take part in a Malaysian tender for delivery of 18 advanced jet trainer aircraft which is likely to be announced later this year. Irkut has an advantage in that competition, Fedorov claimed, because Russia has previously delivered aircraft to that state and "we have an after-sales system there," he said. "We also intend to improve our offer with an offset program, and technology transfer," he said.
    Irkut has previously delivered Su-30 MKM multirole fighter aircraft to Malaysia.

    A light fighter version of the Yak-130 would be very interesting... especially with a radar and EO system fitted.

    It would greatly increase the effectiveness of the aircraft and add a range of weapons it could effectively use.

    And it would be appealing to smaller countries as a cheaper fighter that could also be used as a fighter trainer, but also as a light strike aircraft with two seats and single seat fighter etc etc.

    The potential for a single seat fighter model with perhaps a new single engine configuration using something like the 9.5 ton developed RD-33 engines or perhaps even a single Al-31, but obviously size and weight would be a huge issue... too big an engine and there is no room left for fuel and the range is too short or it uses all its weapon pylons for fuel tanks.

    Even in Russia could radar equipped Yak-130 increase number of AD fighters where and when needed. In combination with Russian IADS and Mig-31BM, Su-35 and PAK-FA fighters even Yak-130 could be very effective, specially against less maneuverable targets like transport planes, helicopters, attack planes, cruise missiles, etc

    Russian Air Force Accepts First Yak-130

    Russia’s Irkut aircraft-manufacturing plant delivered the first six Yakovlev Yak-130 Mitten combat trainers to the Russian Air Force on Thursday, a spokesman for the Western Military District said.

    “On October 4, the first batch of Yak-130 combat trainers fly from the Irkut plant to the Borisoglebsk airfield [Voronezh region] after an extensive flight testing program,” Col. Andrei Bobrun said.

    The Irkut aircraft maker and the Russian Defense Ministry signed in December 2011 a contract for the delivery of 55 Yak-130 jets by 2015.

    The Yak-130 is a highly maneuverable subsonic jet with an extended range of about 1,250 miles (2,000 kilometers) and a maximum speed of 600 mp/h (1,060 km/h) in level flight. It can carry a combat payload of up to 6,600 pounds (3,000 kg), consisting of a variety of Russian and Western-developed weapons.

    As an advanced jet trainer, Yak-130 is suitable for training or re-training pilots to fly fourth- and fifth-generation fighter aircraft.

    It can also carry out a variety of light-attack and reconnaissance missions.

    Good news. Yak-130 is also good for peacetime air patrols and escorts, so pilots could get more flight hours for less money.

    I read in a bulgarian aviation magasine that there was gonna be a new aoerobatic group formed composed of Yak-130s to compete with the frecce tricolori and such. It said that that the group was going to form somewhere around august 2012 but I still havent heard anything. Is there really an aerobatic group being formed or these are jst empty rumours and the VVS is completely satisfied with the strizhi and vityazi and has no interest in forming a group composed of light aircraft.

    I seem to remember they had a display team that flew the older jet trainers... L-29s?

    Or am I mistaken...

    As they change to the new aircraft it would make sense for them to shift to the new type if that is the case.

    Yak had a chart of different variants that they had come up with for the Yak-130 including an unmanned drone model... it will be interesting to see which types make it to the prototype level.

    The Active Radar Homing seeker shown a while back that was described as being for upgrading AAMs and SAMs that had a diameter that could only be used in the R-73 or the OSA/TOR SAM would make an interesting new weapon for the Yak-130.

    Certainly the new Morfei 9M100 SAM/AAM could possibly compliment it, though it might be a very small and slim weapon to increase the capacity for carriage in internal weapon bays, so it might be a case of R-73s with ARH seekers and Morfei as the standard short range IIR guided AAM for the Yak-130 in an interceptor role.

    Such a weapon combination might be useful for helos like the Ka-52 on the Mistral carriers.

    Of course if there is a lot of export demand I would love to see an RD-33 powered Yak-130 with a single engine and an AESA radar in the nose...

    A redesigned lightened 5th gen engine model would be good to improve performance into transonic and supersonic speeds.

    I think the team, that fly in L-39 is named Rus, but, i'm not sure. Maybe they will replace L-39 with Yak-130, when there will be enough Yak-130 in service.

    I wonder, if those new Yak-130 from Irkut are already upgraded with radar or they are still basic ones.





    I always thought Yak-130 doesn't have RWR, but it seems they are placed on wingtip hard points.

    Vietnam, Malaysia Eye Russian Yak-130 Trainer

    ZHUHAI, November 14 (RIA Novosti) – Malaysia and Vietnam are interested in buying Russian-made Yak-130 Mitten combat trainers, a source in the Russian delegation at the Air China aerospace show told RIA Novosti on Wednesday.

    “Malaysia will need new combat trainers in the near future to replace the outdated Italian-made M-339 aircraft,” the source said.

    “The chances are high that Malaysia may purchase the Yak-130 as the country has been one of the key buyers of Russian military aircraft and our planes have been tested there for years,” he said.

    The same refers to Vietnam, which has bought Russian Su-30MK2 jet fighters in the past, the source added.

    Russia's Yak-130 is also a competitor in a tender for delivery of six light fighter jets to the Philippines to replace retired U.S.-built Northrop F-5A Tiger fighters.

    The Yak-130 is a highly maneuverable aircraft with an extended range of about 2,000 kilometers (1,250 miles) and a maximum speed of 1,060 km/h (600 m/h) in level flight. It can carry a combat payload of up to 3,000 kilograms (6,600 pounds), consisting of a variety of Russian and Western developed weapons.

    The Yak-130 has been chosen as a basic aircraft for Russian Air Force pilot training. First deliveries started in 2009.
