    They are two very different planes. Su-34 is heavy fighter bomber for deep strikes in heavily defended areas and have strategical importance, that is why it is well protected electronically and by armor and use long range PGMs.

    Yak-130 will never be used for such tasks. It is advanced trainer and light combat aircraft, so its mission will be different that that of Su-34 and its targets also. Equipped with radar, which could enable the use of basic R-77 missile as small radar will not have enough range for R-77-1 missile, it could do secondary air defense role and with air to ground modes for terrain mapping and searching of stationary and moving ground targets, etc, it will be able to do its job anytime in a day in any weather using PGMs. Light combat Yak-130 is a plane for low intensity war or to engage targets in less defended areas. In such places it will be same effective as Su-34, but far cheaper per mission and without exposing more expensive and more valuable fighter bombers. Equip Yak-130 with IFR and even the range will not be a problem. Actually IFR for Yak-130 will become a must have as IFR is becoming standard equipment in RuAF and pilots will have to learn first skills with IFR with trainers, before they go to real combat jets in combat units. Su-35 and PAK-FA will not have their training two seater variants, so Yak-130 trainer will have to train pilots as much in combat skills as possible, before they will sit in those jets. Basic Yak-130 trainer is excellent for military academies, but after academy they will need more advanced light combat Yak-130 for more advanced combat trainings with real radar, IFR and ESM electronics, before they go to combat units.

    AFAIK by the agreement Yakovlev had with Aeromacchi - Ireland falls under Aeromacchi's potential customer base.

    does Areomacchi have plans to turn theres into light attack etc? if not then Ireland could approach Russia to buy light attack yak-130

    Ireland will not be buying it. I will be surprised indeed if any jets of any type are bought.
    The only jet operated by the tiny Irish Air Corp is a single VIP Learjet.
    The rest of the small fixed wing fleet (15 airframes) are 4 types of propellor planes doing a variety of roles.

    Ireland have never had a modern interceptor, or indeed, any worthwhile combat jet. Only half a squadron of light jet trainers not much faster than WW2 piston fighters. The last "interceptor" was a handful of navalised Spitfires called the Seafire.
    And that isn't about to change.

    An interesting info about Yak-130 family. This is more lee about what  Isaw long time ago on Yak website though now this info is gone.

    http://periscope2.ru/2013/02/06/6906/


    The Yak-130 lost the recent tender of the Russian air force on a prospective strike aircraft. According to a source in the Russian aviation industry, "requirements primarily for booking and defence systems was too high for the plane light class". The tender was won by the deep draft of the modernized su-25 weight of 19.5 tons, which is almost two times higher than that of the Yak-130.
    However, Irkut continues work on single combat version of the aircraft, relying on export customers, as well as the fact that the Russian air force will purchase a light strike aircraft. Single seat modification of the Yak-130 has an index of the Yak-133, were previously known double Yak-131 and supersonic Yak-135. The first prototype of the Yak-133 will be built in 2014

    and this

    Changes to the air-frame will be insignificant, the rear pilot's seat will be replaced by an additional fuel tank and other accessories. The engines will be increased capacity - up to 27.45 kN each, compared with the current thrust of 24.51 kN.

    On impact modification are also installed radar and electro-optical sighting system. According to Konstantin Popovich, it is considered as a variant of the onboard radar and radar in pod. To receive proposals on three Russian companies: "Corporation Fazotron-NIIR", "NIIP. Tikhomirov "Holding and" Leninist ".

    FC-130 radar development "Phazotron" (the index to remain unchanged in spite of the modification) may be millimeter range to find land targets, multifunction radar 30 mm range with slot antenna or radar 30mm range AESA. The last option is the most perfect and most expensive: AESA radar can cost about 10% of the total cost of the aircraft, twice the cost of other systems.

    Suspended optoelectronic container for the Yak-130 is being developed on the basis of the CPR SPC modifications created for Indian MiG-29K.

    These new sensors allow the attack modification of the Yak-130 used ant-radar / anti-ship missile X-31 and the new Russian missiles Kh-38 with different variants of the guidance, and guided bombs. The weapon of class "air-to-air" will include medium-range missiles R-77m. Popovic stressed, stability and handling of the Yak-130 allow the use of such weapons.

    So Yak 135 - supersonic and with AAM with range 110km and relatively cheap in maintenance. Me thinks good prospects on international market and for RuAF not bad choice either for homeland defense.

    First order was 12 + 55 second order + 10 options = 77 aircraft. Two were lost in accidents and the VSK now has 75, sounds like the training version orders are complete??
    There are still the orders of 12 for the Demo squadron and 10 for Naval Aviation in work.
    There should be more orders to come, one would think.

    Generally speaking Russia would need probably close to 300 advanced trainers taking in count size of airforce in general, maybe even more in future. Its common practice to send pilots to advanced trainers to keep them in shape to reduce costs. US operates around 1000 of varios types of advanced and "mid" trainers for an example.

    "Laos Air Force interested in acquiring Yak-130 Russian-made aircraft. Double function jet training and combat vehicles will be used for pilot training and combat missions. The correspondent “Lenta” at the Singapore Airshow 2016 Airshow said a source in the defense industry.

    “Laos interested in this machine, it makes it relatively inexpensive to close a failure, formed after the failure of their MiG-21 aircraft, derived from the Soviet Union in 1970”, – said the interlocutor “Lenta”. The source said that Laos could receive 16-20 aircraft, the contract will include supply of additional equipment, weapons and spare parts, as well as the organization of training of pilots and technicians. Currently, the Air Force of Laos are registered about 25 MiG-21 fighters, but the vast majority of them are airworthy.

    The Yakovlev Yak-130 (NATO reporting name: Mitten) is a subsonic two-seat advanced jet trainer/light attack aircraft or lead-in fighter trainer originally developed by Yakovlev and Aermacchi. Development of the plane began in 1991 and the maiden flight was conducted on 25 April 1996. In 2002, it won a Russian government tender for training aircraft and in 2009 the aircraft entered service with the Russian Air Force. As an advanced training aircraft, the Yak-130 is able to replicate the characteristics of several 4+ generation fighters as well as the fifth-generation Sukhoi PAK FA. It can also perform light-attack and reconnaissance duties, carrying a combat load of 3,000 kg."

    good news and perfect for small armed forces like Laos. However i think 16-20 aircraft being ordered is a slim chance, Laos has around $80-100m armed forces budget, and they couldnt even keep the 25 Mig-21 they had in flying condition, and i personally feel they dont have a need for that many, the country is pretty peaceful, and don't feel threatened by its neighbours, when i travelled through the country a few years ago, it was the most peaceful country i have ever visited, and speaking to people who could speaking english said they were a peaceful country and there was no real trouble. And they remain good relations with Vietnam so any threat to Laos would have Vietnam to deal with. I think at most 6 would be enough, but if i have to be honest they would be better buying Mi-17 and a couple of Mi-26, as these could double up and be used for disaster relief if needed, the Mi-17 could also be converted to gunship if needed. The country is pretty poor so to waste money on 16-20 Yak-130 could piss a lot of local people off.

    I don't think the Naval Aviation has any L-39's as basic aviation training for all military (including Border Guards, MVD, etc) is carried out by the VSK. There are 10 Yak-130's on order for the Navy but I think they replace the Su-25UTG's, etc.

    So Yak 135 - supersonic and with AAM with range 110km and relatively cheap in maintenance. Me thinks good prospects on international market and for RuAF not bad choice either for homeland defense.

    An important point to keep in mind is that even if the Yak-135 could fly supersonic it would be very rare for it to actually do so operationally.

    Flying supersonic burns a lot of fuel very fast an such a small aircraft with newer bigger more thirsty engines will need to carry drop tanks most of the time just to have a decent radius of action.

    Its advantage will be numbers... it wont need to be supersonic to cover 1000km square, because you can buy 4 for the price of a larger alternative fighter... base them all around the place and you get better coverage.

    In a larger air force have a dozen of them armed with AAMs and have them defending your airfields and cities will the other larger more expensive fighters take on the enemy.

    So Yak 135 - supersonic and with AAM with range 110km and relatively cheap in maintenance. Me thinks good prospects on international market and for RuAF not bad choice either for homeland defense.

    In a larger air force have a dozen of them armed with AAMs and have them defending your airfields and cities will the other larger more expensive fighters take on the enemy.

    That´s precisely my idea of application in Russian AF. Of course export potential is enormous: all countries in need of relatively cheap fighter both price and maintenance could be interested.

    An interesting vid about Yak-130.

    From 3:15 they say: that tests of CAS version based on Yak-130 have already started. YAK still plans a drone and fighter however no fixed plans yet.

    Just curious about the commented supersonic Yak-135. I'm a little surprised that a version of the Yak-130 can become supersonic.
