    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.

    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.

    Don't know who put that data sheet together for that infographic but.. 227kg and 454kg bombs and an air to ground missile that looks like a maverick suggests they were copying from a western document... should be 250kg and 500kg bombs... as well as 100kg bombs and 1,000kg bombs.

    Cosmonaut Training Center To Buy Yak-130

    Russian Cosmonaut Training Center in Star City can receive the latest domestic training aircraft Yak-130 for special training.

    As the chief of the Cosmonaut Training Center Yuri Lonchakov said: “We have prepared a proposal to the Federal Space Program for the purchase of new equipment instead of the L-39 – a modern trainer Yak-130, instead of the IL-76 – new IL-476. We are looking for new car trunks also for the delivery of crews to the spaceport Vostochny. Now the variants are observed.”

    Currently, the fleet of Cosmonaut Training Center has specially equipped aircraft IL-76, at which it is worked out the mode of weightlessness, the Tu-134 for observation and aerial photography, and special training of astronauts is undergone on training L-39 “Albatros”.

    I think Yak-130M will be more light multirole fighter. I hope they will install engines with afterburners to increase their power and top speed and place radar in the nose. With more powerful engines Yak-130M could quickly become similar in capabilities to FA-50 and JF-17 light multirole fighters. This plane could be an excellent basement for Novorussian air force.

    Russia's Rostec eyes Brazilian partnership on trainer jet

    (Reuters) - Russian state company Rostec could use equipment from Brazilian defense contractor Mectron in the YAK-130 jet trainer, a senior executive told Reuters, as Russia turns to Latin America to offset sanctions imposed by the West over the crisis in Ukraine.

    The statement by Sergei Goreslavsky, deputy head of Rostec unit Rosoboronexport, is the first confirmation of negotiations on a possible deal that could see Moscow buy equipment from Mectron if Brazil buys Russia's Pantsir-S1 air defense system.

    ...

    A press representative for Odebrecht had no comment on supplying equipment for the YAK-130. News reports in the past have suggested that Mectron could supply its Scipio-01 radar for the Russian jet.

    A very cool looking plane...

    With a small nose radar and targeting pod it would be a potent light fighter...

    Irkut Corporation: Yak-130 aircraft may be fitted with weapons produced in Latin America
    Russian Aviaton » Thursday May 7, 2015 15:22 MSK

    Russian Yak-130 operational trainer may be fitted with weapons, radar and avionics manufactured in Latin American countries, Vzglyad reports with reference to the head of Regional Marketing Department of Irkut Corporation, Viktor Lichaev.

    «There is a project for adaptation of Yak-130 jets to weapons, avionics and radar manufactured in Brazil and other Latin American countries. This is a hot topic,» Lichaev said at LAAD-2015 exhibition.

    According to him, Irkut hopes to occupy a niche in Latin America by means of “promoting Yak-130 at Brazilian and other markets”, because members of the Union of South American Nations are developing a registry of similar weapons and equipment.

    Yak-130 operational trainer (NATO reporting name: Mitten) is designed for pilot training and combat missions. The jet is capable of destroying ground and air targets. The jet performed its maiden flight in 1996 and was selected as the primary trainer of the Russian air forces in 2002. Algeria became the launch customer for Yak-130 (among foreign countries). This year Yak-130 jets will be delivered to Belarus and Bangladesh.

    Yak-130 with Scipio radar from AMX could be quite good option for South American customers. I think Irkut have an eye on Brazil and Argentina for them.
