    i remember there was a bit of news a year or two ago about a really small initial trainer (ab initio?) but i can't find a link for it anymore... something along the lines of Zlin and such tiny aircraft.

    anyhow, there was some talks that yak152 and cj7 are being developed together (which would make sense as both are based on yak52 in one form or another). other than the wiki page which offers no sources, is there a proper link someplace to answer that question?

    Talking about PC-9 and Tucano advanced turboprop trainers, we have to know, they were designed to reduce costs for pilot trainings as they need less jet trainer flying hours, maybe even without them, to become operational air force pilot. In USSRAF/RuAF former trainers were Yak-52 and L-39. Enough for basic skills, the rest they got with UB variants of combat planes, specially with cheaper light fighters like MiG-21UB or MiG-23UB fighters. Today RuAF goes mostly for heavier twin engine combat planes, like Su-30, Su-34, Su-35, PAK-FA and even MiG-29K and MiG-35 are not light and cheap. All those new planes now have IFR capabilities and are multirole. SU-35 and PAK-FA are only single seaters, and Su-34 have WSO as second member, not fly instructor. This situation bring Yak-130 to now tasks, which L-39 didn't have. Yak-130 will have to take the role of UB variants of lighter combat planes, to make pilots ready to fly those new planes without UB variants. Yak-130 could already simulate flying caracteristics of those new planes, but for higher level, they will need to equip it with radar and IFR capabilities to fully train pilots for combat missions and for operational pilots to maintain high number of flying hours with cheaper Yak-130 hours instead of expensive Su-34 or Su-35 flying hours. Land simulators bring a lot to pilot skills and flying conditions, but real flying is still needed. RuAF should create more training centers for operational pilots (and for those, who comes from academies) with combat capable trainers to train and keep the level of flying hours without exposing too much more expensive combat jets, which will not be produced in so large numbers as those simple jets in times of USSR.

    Picture of Yak-152 model. I wonder if Yak-152 will have turboprop engine or usual gasoline engine?

    Yes, and it appears to be a "regular" engine as there isn't a large jet intake. - That being said, it is just a model.

    Probably a piston engine.... some of their newer planes actually have diesel piston engines...

    BTW, speaking about piston engines, did you check out the Rostec article I posted in the VVS thread? It talks about a new heat resistant aluminum being developed in Russia to replace titanium in aircraft engines, which will lighten the the engine weight and significantly increase fuel-efficiency. They also directly mentioned that piston engines will get a significant boost in capability, that means the Yak-152 will benefit if it has one.

    More info about Yak-152. If those planed caracteristics will be reached, than this will be very capable plane for basic trainer.

    An Excellent article... such improvements can create an enormous range of benefits across a range of weapon systems and technology.

    Such a development will make components much cheaper and lighter... imagine a rifle with an Aluminium construction that is light and yet heat resistant... the applications are fascinating...

    New version of Yak-130. Maybe this one is equipped with radar and need some more space in the nose for other equipment.

    This modification is an upgrade package.

    It is described clearly in this video:

    Considering the video, this could be M2 upgraded variant. It get laser range finder, but I think IRST should be better option. Russia already order Talisman ESM/ECM pods for Yak-130 and in video they say M2 upgrade variant will use them. From video, it seems upgraded Yak-130 get improved navigational system and is capable of maritime operations. This is good for RuNAVY trainers and for training squadrons, which could be placed in islands like Sakhalin or Kurils. Basic Yak-130 is for academies, but upgraded Yak-130 is for training squadrons to prepare pilots from academies for combat planes, specially for planes like Su-34, Su-35 and PAK-FA, which doesn't have UB variants. IFR capacity for upgraded Yak-130 is very important, because IFR is now standard equipment in new build RuAF and RuNAVY combat planes.

    New upgraded Yak-130 is flying. It seems it have data link antenna in tail fin, which standard Yak-130 doesn't have.

    ANOTHER 5 Yak-130 have been delivered to Armavir. That makes it 10 already delivered in January (although they are from 2014 plan). Very Happy

    Kuban Military Aviation Base to Get 25 New Yak-130 Training Planes in 2015

    A Russian Air Force training base in Russia's Kuban region is set to receive more than two dozen new Yak-130 light attack training aircraft.

    MOSCOW, February 1 (Sputnik) — The Zhukovsky and Gagarin Air Force Academy in Armavir, Krasnodar is set to receive five new Yakovlev Yak-130 light attack training aircraft this week, with twenty more to be delivered before the year is out, Rossiyskaya Gazeta reports.

    The completed planes, which have been undergoing testing in the Irkutsk region in Siberia at the Irkut Corporation plant, are set to make their long journey across the country this week.

    The subsonic two-seater advanced trainer/light attack aircraft, NATO code-named Mitten, was developed by the A.S. Yakovlev Design Bureau, and is being produced by Irkut, a member of Russia's United Aircraft Corporation.

    The Falcons of Russia aerobatics team of the 4th State Training Center for Aviation Personnel of the Ministry of Defense perform at the Ninth International Exhibition of Arms, Military Equipment and Ammunition Russia Arms Expo 2013 in Nizhny Tagil.

    By technical and maneuverability characteristics the plane is close to the modern fighter planes' performance at subsonic flight speed, making it a perfect training craft for future pilots of fourth+ and fifth generation planes.

    The first deliveries of the aircraft, which made its first test flights in 1996, began in 2009, and it has been used for training since 2013. The Borisoglebskiy Aviation Training Center, which was the first to receive the trainers, presently has 48 of the craft. The Russian Air Force intends to purchase a total of at least 72 Yak-130 aircraft, enough for four training regiments. Other countries operating or signing contracts for delivery of the plane include Algeria, Bangladesh, Belarus, Syria, and Vietnam, with several other countries showing interest.
