    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.

    YAK-130 with Laser Rangefinder - mentioned earlier here (previous page)

    Since the beginning of April 2015 at the airport of "Flight Research Institute MM Gromov" in Zhukovsky flies combat training aircraft Yak-130 (tail number "01 Red"), modified with the installation of the bow (front top cabin) laser rangefinder.

    It is reported that tests are carried out in the framework of R & D to create an attack version of the Yak-130 in the interests of unnamed foreign client.

    This modified Yak-130 owned by JSC "Experimental Design Bureau Yakovlev is the first pre-production model of the Yak-130, built by JSC" Nizhny Novgorod Aircraft Plant "Sokol" and made ​​its first flight in 2004. In 2014 the plane passed repairs, upgrades and improvements, received, at the same time a new color scheme corresponding to the color of serial Yak-130 Russian Air Force built in 2014.

    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.

    With a small radar it would make a neat little fighter... especially if you take out the two existing engines and swap them for an upgraded RD-33 with 9 tons of thrust... it should make it supersonic....

    Supposedly a new engine is being developed that can replace Al-225 on Yak-130, and also be used on "UAV" projects.
    It should have better thrust and consumption/maintenance characteristics, although I wonder if Al-225 will actually be replaced
    on Russian Yak-130 trainers, i.e. re-engining them in an over-haul so quickly? Or even having a 'split fleet' has issues.
    It could be attractive for export customers who don't yet have a Yak-140 fleet, especially if it enables more payload/range for light attack version...?

    I am curious why they didn't bother with putting on some small AESA radar or an earlier zhuk radar (until the AESA's are ready), and optical system similar to like what Textron showed with the Scorpion? Why not use the Thermal imager, TV/laser sight system used on the Mi-28 and Mi-35M?

    Wonder if they will pursue conformal fuel tanks, could open up more hard points for heavier munitions/launchers...

    This EO device have larger window than Klen in Su-25, so it must also have TV and maybe IIR channel inside.

    I don't think they will replace those engines so quick on existing Yak-130 trainers. After all, they are in air academies and for their need, they are just perfect. More advanced engines will most probably come with Yak-130 in role of light combat trainer. Considering, that Su-35 and PAK-FA don't have two seaters, they will need more combat equipped and powerful Yak-130 trainer to prepare young pilots from academies for new fighters and to get proper combat skills before they sit in the real fighter jet.

    Are you talking about the Al-222-25? In which case the fact that it is made by Motor Sich in the Ukraine perhaps suggests an alternative Russian engine might be useful for both export and domestic use.

    Its usefulness in UAVs and UCAVs and other light aircraft would be significant as well.

    I am curious why they didn't bother with putting on some small AESA radar or an earlier zhuk radar (until the AESA's are ready), and optical system similar to like what Textron showed with the Scorpion?

    It is currently a small light LIFT with limited attack capability.

    An AESA would certainly improve performance in attack and air to air capabilities, but for the cost I suspect it would be more efficient to sell them MiGs which have better range, better speed, and are a mature system.

    Why not use the Thermal imager, TV/laser sight system used on the Mi-28 and Mi-35M?

    Would be better to fit it with a targeting pod... not every aircraft will need it, and it would be cheaper and simpler to upgrade.

    With newer weapons being lighter and of course new light weapons being developed for UCAVs due soon I would not bother making the Yak-130 into a MiG-29SMT... if they want a light attack aircraft there are already plenty of other options.

    I don't think they will replace those engines so quick on existing Yak-130 trainers. After all, they are in air academies and for their need, they are just perfect. More advanced engines will most probably come with Yak-130 in role of light combat trainer.

    They have Made in the Ukraine stamped on them... I suspect replacing them will be a priority.

    My understanding was first order for 12, then 55 and 10 optional which has been ordered. Should be complete this year or next.
    Next order thru to 2025 was to be for another 55 I heard, but unknown concerning status. The Naval Aviation is also getting 5-10.
    Total delivered to Air Force by end of 2014 was 63.

    EDIT: that 63 may be active aircraft with 2 lost so far. That would mean the 12 due for delivery this year will be the end of those ordered.
