    A new cammo for Yak-130 (from 04:10)? Perhaps it is indeed bye bye monotonous grey.
    Note these two are on top of the planned (and fulfilled) 18 for VVS this year.

    Russian air forces will order more Yak-130 operational trainers
    Russian Aviaton » Tuesday December 31, 2013 14:05 MSK

    Russian air forces plan to purchase another batch of Yak-130 operational trainers after implementation of the current contract, RIA Novosti reports with reference to the Commander-in-Chief of the air forces, Viktor Bondarev.

    "We are pretty sure that we will sign this contract", — Bondarev said during his visit to Irkutsk Aviation Plant.

    The existing contract assumes delivery of 55 Yak-130 operational trainers. A total of 42 jets of the type have already been delivered to the customer. Irkut Corporation delivered 18 Yak-130s to the air forces. Two more Yak-130 jets should be delivered to the Ministry of Defense by the end of 2013 (on account of the 2014 order).

    According to the Commander-in-Chief, the air forces need a lot of Yak-130 operational trainers, because the Minister of Defense, Sergey Shoygu, decided to expand the recruitment for the Air Force Academies in 2013-2014.

    I think the YAK130 is a great little aircraft thats cheap to buy and maintain, and it can be used in all roles trainer, light attack, recce, anti air, anti ship/sub, aswell as being able to operate from unpaved and grass strips.
    It might not meet Russian pilot protection standards but its still a cheap alternative to flying higher cost aircraft during peace time operations, ideal for recce and maritime recce.
    Its also a capable light attack/anti air/anti ship/sub aircraft, and although it will never be as good as the higher cost aircraft its still cheap and capable. Syria seem to be doing alright using their Areoo L-39's as attack aircraft, having only lost a 2 or 3 in 2 yrs of conflict.

    Its also a great aircraft for defence forces or countries with a small military budget. I think some African, central and south american countries could be potential customers for the light attack role, and anti drug and COIN operations.

    Does anyone know if any country has shown interest in buying the YAK130 as a light attack aircraft???

    There have been claims about tests done with the Yak-130 as a Su-25 replacement, where the Yak-130 together with UCAVs operate over a battlefield and the Yaks use stand off weapons to engage point ground targets. The reports I heard suggested they thought the Yak needed more armour for the role, which would reduce its performance to below what the Su-25 can already achieve so the word is that they are looking at initially upgrading the Su-25 and then replacing it with a new dedicated CAS aircraft.

    Hi garry do u, know any info what will replace it? will this will be a turbo prop design or jet powered?

    Hard to say.

    A turbo prop would reduce heat emissions to a minimum but the prop blades would be vulnerable to damage and unless you used a pusher prop design would take up valuable nose space that would otherwise have sensors and other equipment.

    In terms of jet power the ideal on paper should be the turbofan because of the lower temperature exhaust being less of a target to IR guided missiles, but a turbo jet is used in the Su-25 and I have read it throttles up and down faster which is more useful in tight areas like in the mountains of Afghanistan.

    With DIRCMS fitted shielding the IR signature is not so critical, and of course more modern missiles don't need an extremely hot source to target anyway... there is even the idea that with thrust vectoring nozzles the IR signature could be reduced by deflecting the engine nozzles in flight... this gives the combined bonus of reduced IR signature AND extreme low level manouver capability.

    There was an all black plastic model design with a pusher propeller system that was shown in the mid 1990s that pretty much looked like an Su-25 but with the wing moved to the rear with a tail mounted coaxial prop fan with two sets of canards at the nose with two sets angled down and two angled near horizontal... the most interesting thing was the joints on the wings which seemed to indicate folding wings for naval use.

    It was from an obscure design bureau I don't know much about... SABA or SABCA or something.

    There was also a two fuselage straight wing design with two crew compartments that would increase the amount of nose mounted sensors to allow both optical and radar to be nose mounted and it had a rather stealthy look but I have not read much about that either.

    pretty interesting info GarryB, pity it never went into production, but i suppose to design another type of plane costs alot of money, and the Yak-130 primary role was trainer, its just shame as not only does it look good, buts its pretty impressive as far as trainers go, just would have been good to see it being used in a combat role.

    U made some good points for, for and against turbo prop, turbo prop are usually cheaper to maintain and use, (fuel wise), the Russians seem to know their stuff when its comes to turbo props, would have been good to see a Russian made COIN turbo prop, in service.

    but like u have said in the past the SU-25 like the A-10, have been used for years and will no doubt continue to be used for years becayse the design is good and fit for purpose. Ive always wondered what will replace it eventually, whatever it is, i hope it ends up having a great legacy like the SU-25.

    The last I read they were going to upgrade the Su-25SM, and then go for a new 5th gen CAS aircraft.

    I have no idea what it might look like however... Sad

    This is the twin fuselage model I told you about:

    During the tests with the Yak-130 they found with the pilot flying the aircraft in the front concentrating on not hitting the ground the crewman in the back could focus on finding targets and threats.

    They also found that with two crew the rear guy could directly take the live feed from a UCAV and control it to move it to a better position to give him live target data or even attack the target itself without the need for a 12,000km long satellite link.

    The two different noses meant one could carry a radar for night and all weather long range detection and tracking of ground and air targets while the other nose could be filled with Optics and other sensors and target marking equipment without using up a wing pylon.

    I should point out I have also seen another very similar model with two widely separated engines.

    Cool.

    http://bmpd.livejournal.com/741852.html

    It is a separate order for a dozen Yak-130s from Irkut. Add to that the 10 naval birds, Yak-130 is selling quite well.

    12 + 10 + (first batch from Sokol) 12 + 55 + follow on order which VVS said will be at least as big as 55 = from the Russian MOD alone, before 2020 there will be at least 144 Yak-130s handed over.

    Yak-130 will get the status light fighter

    This will make the car even more popular in foreign markets

    In the short term on combat training aircraft Yak-130 is planned to install locator that will allow him to acquire the status of a light attack aircraft. This will make the car even more attractive in foreign markets. Told RIA Novosti CEO of the Research Institute of Instrument them. V.V.Tihomirova Yuri White.

    Their proposals presented on the radar of the Scientific Research Institute of Instrument them. V.V.Tihomirova belongs to KRET.

    "We expect that the Yak-130 in the foreseeable future will be set locator - suggestions we have already given," - said Yuri White.

    Universal for flight training machine makes the new avionics. Fully digital complex avionics developed and manufactured by the enterprises of Concern "Radio-electronic technology" allows the Yak-130 mimic the basic flight characteristics fighters fourth and fifth generations.

    Yak-130 - Russian combat training aircraft pilots in-depth training designed to train pilots piloting skills and combat missions during the action at ground and air targets, specific to aircraft 4 and 5 generations. Taxing on the machine-based conditions and can land on unprepared sites.

    This is great news, ive always said the the Yak 130 should be used as a light attack aircraft, it could be used in various roles ground attack, recce, anti air, anti shipping/ASW, but maybe vunerable in the CAS role, i think YAK 130 would be ideal aircraft for poorer or low budget countries

    The flights of Yak-130 jets will be resumed in July

    The flights of Yak-130 operational trainers will be resumed in July 2014. We remind you that Yak-130 fleet was grounded after a crash occurred on April 15th 2014 near Akhtubinsk, Lenta.ru reports with reference to Russian Ministry of Defense.

    In addition, the ministry confirmed the plans for creation of the Yak-130 aerobatic team called “Krilya Tavridi” (The Wings of Tavrida). The team will comprise four jets and later two more aircraft will join it. The establishment of the team was started in November 2013. At present Russian air forces comprise four aerobatic teams: Russian Knights (Kubinka, operates Su-27 fighters), Strizhi (Kubinka, operates MiG-29 fighters), Sokoli Rossiyi (stand for Falcons of Russia, Lipetsk, operates Su-27 jets) and Torzhok-based helicopter aerobatic team Berkuti.

    The crash of Yak-130 near Akhtubinsk (Astrakhan Region) occurred due to control system failure. The crew comprising two pilots has managed to eject, but one of the pilots died.

    Yak-130 is the two-seat next-generation operational trainer developed by Yakovlev design bureau. It is intended for pilot training and combat missions performed under normal and severe weather conditions. The jet is capable of destroying ground and air targets. The jet’s aircraft performance coupled with the capabilities of its control system make it suitable for training of future pilots of “4+”-generation and fifth-generation fighters.
