    Interesting small targeting pod on the last image (Yellow thing on the fuselage side closest to the camera... about the size of the R-73 dummy...)

    With thermal imaging, GLONASS, and a laser rangefinder/target marker it should allow the aircraft to detect and attack a range of targets with laser and TV guided weapons on the ground and in the air.

    I am quite sure it is a gun pod.

    The front of it is very open... is it a twin barrel system where the barrels can be lowered?

    It seems rather small to me to be a gun pod.

    Of course if it was a targeting pod the large open front lower part would be designed to pivot left and right to maximise field of view and it does not seem to have that capability just looking at the image.

    I would think a small targeting pod would be rather more use than a gun pod... Sad

    Hi Garry, it's a gun pod with a GSh-23L in it (i can't recall what is called now though). Not sure about the depression capability for the gun pod, but as to targeting systems there have been already tests with such a system mounted both on top of the nose and inside it.

    For some reason looking at the original photo my brain seemed to tell me the pod was offset to the side of the fuselage... but looking there it is centrally mounted.
    that looks like a custom fitted pod like the one fitted to the MiG-21 and MiG-23 rather than a wing pylon fitted twin barrel 23mm cannon like the fixed UPK-23-250 or the SPPU-22 where the guns can elevate from 0 degrees to -30 degrees down.

    The Bangladesh Naval Forces introduced two former Chinese submarines

    On March 12, 2017, at the Issa Khan Naval Base in Chittagong, an official ceremony was held for the introduction into the Bangladesh Navy of two diesel-electric submarines Nabojatra and Joyjatra bought in China (the names are translated roughly as New Way and Victory Road). Boats of Chinese construction project 035G (western designation class Ming) were previously part of the PLA Navy and now became the first submarines in the history of the Bangladeshi fleet. The ceremony was attended by the Prime Minister of Bangladesh Sheikh Hasina and members of the government and the country's top military leadership.

    China and Bangladesh signed a contract for the supply of aviation equipment worth 1 billion $?

    According to the user of the Twitter network East Pendulum, a contract worth $ 1 billion was allegedly signed between Bangladesh and the PRC for the supply of 16 J-10B fighters, seven K-8W training aircraft, one Y-20 military transport aircraft (the first known Export contract - bmpd), one KJ-200 aircraft and other types of weapons.

    Yak-130 aircraft of the Bangladesh Air Force crashed

    According to the Bangladeshi media, on the afternoon of July 11, 2017, in the Lochagor area south of Chittagong, the combat training aircraft Yak-130 crashed (board number 15102, short number 102, serial number 130.12.02-0102) from the 21st Squadron Air Force Bangladesh from the air base Zahur (Zahur) near Chittagong. Both pilots (vangu-commander Nazmul and squadron leader Kvamrul) successfully catapulted.



    Recall that the contract for the supply of Bangladesh 16 combat training aircraft Yak-130 (with an option for another eight) was concluded by Rosoboronexport in 2013 in the framework of the loan provided by Moscow to the country for $ 1 billion to purchase military products. The first Yak-130, built by the Irkutsk Aviation Plant (part of the Irkut Corporation Corporation) for Bangladesh under this contract (the aircraft with serial number 130.12.02-0101, Bangladesh airborne number "15101" and "short" number "101" ) Made the first flight in Irkutsk on April 29, 2015, and the second - the now broken board (with serial number 130.12.02-0102, Bangladesh number "15102" and "short" number "102") made its first flight to Irkutsk on May 5, 2015 of the year.

    The first six Yak-130 combat training planes built for Bangladesh (factory numbers from 130.12.02-0101 to 130.12.02-0106, Bangladesh airborne numbers from 15101 to 15106) were delivered from Irkutsk to Dhaka airport by An-124-100 transport aircraft Russian airline Volga-Dnepr on September 22-23, 2015, and the Bangladesh Air Force was formally launched on December 6, 2015. Another eight Yak-130 aircraft (factory numbers from 130.12.02-0107 to 130.12.02-0114, Bangladeshi side numbers from 15104 to 15114) were delivered to Bangladesh at the end of 2015, and the last two (factory numbers 130.12.02-0115 And 130.12.02-0116, Bangladeshi side numbers 15115 and 15116) - in 2016.

    The Yak-130 aircraft entered the arsenal of the 21st squadron of the "Avengers" Air Force of Bangladesh, which is stationed at the Zahur airbase near Chittagong and until November 2014 was equipped with Chinese A-5S fighter bombers and FT-6 combat training aircraft.

    Bangladesh became the third recipient of the Yak-130 outside the Russian Federation after Algeria (which received 16 aircraft in 2011) and Belarus (which received eight aircraft from April 2015 to 2016). In 2016, deliveries of Yak-130 aircraft to Myanmar were also started. The July 11, 2017 accident of the Yak-130 plane of the Bangladesh Air Force was the first loss of a car of this type abroad.

    Bangladesh received two more former Italian corvette

    According to Italian resources, on October 12, 2017, at the Italian shipbuilding association Fincantieri in Mudgiano (Spice), a ceremony was held for the transfer of the last two Italian corvettes from four ships of the Minerva type, acquired by Bangladesh and upgraded to patrol ships, to the coast guard of Bangladesh. On October 12, the former corvettes F 552 Urania and F 553 Danaide, withdrawn from the BMC of Italy in March 2016, were transferred to the Bangladesh Coast Guard with the new names PL 74 Kamruzzaman and PL 73 Mansoor Ali.



    On 4 March 2015, the Government of Bangladesh approved the purchase of four Minerva corvettes from the Italian fleet for the newly formed coast guard of the country, with a purchase price of 105 million euros. Under the terms of the agreement, the ships were transferred to Bangladesh in pairs in 2016 and 2017 after repairs and upgrades at the facilities of the Italian association Fincantieri, which acts as a contractor for the supply of the Corvettes being written off by the Italian fleet to Bangladesh.

    The first two corvettes F 551 Minerva and F 558 Sibilla, rebuilt into patrol ships and received the new Bangladeshi names PL 71 Syed Nazrul and PL 72 Tajuddin, were transferred to Bangladesh on August 4, 2016.

    All Bangladesh ships of this type are named after the leaders of the struggle for independence of Bangladesh from the Awami League, executed after the coup on August 15, 1975, and, accordingly, are designated in Bangladesh as a type of Leader. These ships have become the largest units of the Coast Guard of Bangladesh.

    In total, the Italian Navy had eight corvettes of the Minerva type with a standard displacement of about 1300 tons, built by the Fincantieri association and put into operation in 1987-1991.

    Works on the repair and modernization for Bangladesh of the former Italian corvettes were carried out by Fincantieri at a ship repair plant at the Italian naval base Agusta in Genoa, with subsequent upgrading to Mudgiano. During the conversion to patrol ships from the corvettes, all weapons were dismantled, and a 25 mm single-barreled automatic Oerikon KBA was installed on the site of the Oto Melara Compact 76-mm artillery. The service life of the ships has been extended by more than 20 years.
