    Mig-29SMT and Su-27SM would be the best and cheapest options for smaller countries.

    Sounds good ..but 24 planes is far from the numbers you will have to deal in a real combat. Many NATO countries have no less than 300 planes..  Israel have 1,000   Turkey about same.. and this is not counting drones.  Belarus
    defenses are not good enough to face a NATO massive attack with Tomahawks or combat jets launching missiles in the hundreds.. specially if the attack is done nearly same time. An ideal Minimum air defense in belarus should have the capability to counter at least 50 planes at the same time ,even if they fire all their missiles first . So at very least a strong minimum defense in belarus should be able to counter 100 targets/missiles at same time. IN lybia war for example NATO did not used a huge force ,just a good enough one and they launched near a thousand of tomahawks missiles somewhere it was said. Air defense they could be compared with personal umbrellas , they are good to cover you from any rain ,but if you have to cover two or three people at same time from a rain ,it doesn't work that well.

    Belarus has means to counter much more than 50 planes at the same time and in comparison with any EU country has by far more capable IADS. Also Belarus PVO troopers are excellent.

    In regards to NATO - pitting 30 states against one is not fair and Belarus would not stand alone in that fight and thats for sure.

    - 48 missiles for 24 targets makes only latest addition (because of 4 Russian S-300 batteries) to Belarus anyway formidable IADS.

    Good stuff Viktor, thanks. Considering that apparently the portofolio of Russian-Ukraine contracts was no less than $15 billion, if an important part of that will be transferred to Belarus it will be a major boost for it's industry and of course Russia-Belarus bilateral ties.

    From Belta news (Belarus news agency). Military pilots of the 116th guards attack aviation base of the air and anti-aircraft defense forces of the Republic of Belarus finish second at the international aviation competition Aviadarts 2014 that was held in Russia.

    The Belarusian team (three Su-25 crews) was behind the winner just eight points in the final.

    The competitions that included aerial navigation and target reconnaissance also featured transport aviation, fighters and helicopters. Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu put forward an initiative to hold such competitions in 2013. Partaking in Aviadarts 2014 were pilots from Belarus, China and Russia.

    MINSK, 25 August (BelTA) – A tactical exercise involving a number of Belarusian air defense units and air force units is in its final phase, representatives of the Belarusian Defense Ministry told BelTA.

    Units of two Belarusian air defense missile regiments started a combat alert mission at the Russian firing range Telemba on 25 August. As part of the ceremony a state flag of the Republic of Belarus was hoisted above the firing range, BelTA has been told.

    In the next few days the military personnel will have to make the transition from training and pre-launch preparations to live fire launches as part of training missions.

    The start of the combat alert mission coincided with a regular anniversary since the foundation date of the 15th air defense missile brigade, which personnel is also at the Russian firing range. Air Force and Air Defense Commander, Major-General Oleg Dvigalev congratulated the brigade's personnel on the date as he started the ceremony.

    Belarus will take delivery of four Yak-130 operational trainers in 2015

    Belarusian Ministry of Defense and Irkut Corporation (Russia) started implementation of a contract for delivery of four Yak-130 operational trainers, TASS reports with reference to the Minister of Defense of Belarus, Andrei Ravkov.

    “We started implementation of the contract for delivery of four Yak-130 operational trainers. The deliveries will be completed in 2015,” he noted.

    The contract between Irkut Corporation and Belarusian Ministry of Defense for delivery of four Yak-130 jets was signed in December 2012 “in the network of implementation of an agreement between Russia and Belarus aimed at development of military-technical cooperation between the countries”.

    Yak-130 is the two-seat next-generation operational trainer designed for training of military pilots. It is the only operational trainer in the world to feature an aerodynamic configuration and aircraft performance similar to advanced fighters at subsonic speeds. The aircraft is fitted with state-of-the-art avionics suite; the jet offers high reliability and long service life. It is capable of carrying a payload of 3 tons.

    Belarus was the first member of CIS Region to purchase Yak-130 jets.

    Russian Aviaton » Tuesday March 31, 2015 13:31 MSK

    A group of Belarusian service members (4 pilots and 18 technicians) are undergoing theoretical training dedicated to operation of Yak-130 jets at Zhukovsky-based personnel training center, BELTA reports with reference to Belarusian Ministry of Defense.

    The ministry added that the high-skilled specialists able to assure proper operation of the new aircraft type were selected for the training. “It is planned that in late April Irkut Corporation will deliver four Yak-130 operational trainers to Belarusian air forces,” the ministry added.

    Yak-130 jets will replace L-39 aircraft manufactured in Czech Republic.

The jet offers great maneuverability, cutting-edge avionics (similar to the avionics suites installed on the latest combat aircraft), high reliability and long service life. Yak-130 is the world’s only operational trainer to feature aerodynamic configuration and aircraft performance close to advanced fighters at subsonic speeds. The jet is capable of carrying 3 tons of payload (guided and unguided missiles and bombs, cannons, etc.) using nine weapon stations.
