why the hell do they need anything more? air superpower bulgaria? ready for war against romania? lmao
and if they want to play as support in some NATO war both of these aircraft's could do it too, they wont be doing much more then simple reconnaissance or some basic bombing anyway under any circumstances
I of course was only stating if they were wanting such fixed wing then options i mention were in relation to that. However on grounds of "what" is actually needed i quite agree Bulgaria and many other nations don't need such aircraft, hence some south American countries have purchased Embraer EMB 314 Super Tucano and this does the job, i personally think the Super Tucano to be a great aircraft for CAS, but of course if you wanted the next step up then armed version Yak-130 would be perfect. I think Russia is missing out on a market by not pushing the armed version of the Yak-130 to South American countries, Africa, and other nations who either dont have the requirement for more or have the budget for more advanced aircraft. The beauty about the Yak-130 is its cost, maintenance and versatility, the Yak can be used in any role trainer, ground attack, anti-air, anti-surface(naval), recce, etc.
