    Anyone know, if Yak-130 for Navy will be equipped with arrester hook, or they will continue to use Su-25UTG for carrier operation trainings.

    I think they just intend to use MiG-29KUB. UTG is almost dead, and Yak-130s are for land base use.

    MiG-29KUB will be on carrier. Yak-130 will be on naval ground training center (Crimea or in Russia), where they have ski jump and arrester wires for trainings of new pilots, before they will go to carrier. maybe they will order more MiG-29KUB for training center for this task.

    i tried to search it but there is no yak-130 with a tail hook so they probably won't be used for both.

    Interesting is, that Yakovlev show carrier trainer as one of Yak-130 versions. This one is the simplest modification. they only have to add the hook, strenghten the landing gear and add instruments for maritime navigation.

    Huh, but you are right, the modification would be quick and easy.

    So now they could form the first carrier Mig-29K squadron. I think we will need to wait for some time to see them on the carrier.

    As I know, RuNAVY receive 4 in 2013, 10 in 2014 and 10 in 2015. They will most probably train pilots on MiGs next year in Eysk NITKA center and in 2016 place them on carrier. Anyway, Su-33 will be soon ground based fighter.

    The question is... when the Su-33s are grounded, will they put MiGs on board or will they take this opportunity to put the K into dry dock for that big upgrade it was supposed to be getting.

    I suspect it all depends on the status of all the new things they want to fit... and the changes they want to make.

    testing the new nuclear propulsion plants for new heavy ships and carriers would be useful, but if they are not ready then it might spend some more time at sea...

    they will likely wait for the naval Koalition gun system to be ready or perhaps a 203mm calibre version of it.... Twisted Evil and of course having S-500 ready to go would also make things faster...
