    I reiterate there's no logical reason put that aircraft in to service. A major strike against the aircraft is that it's a private venture so...

    It is a private venture... why not just wish it success on the civilian market?

    I rather doubt it would be a replacement for the Yak-130... the Yak-130 can carry a weapon payload of 3 tons and the SR-10 has a MTOW of 2.7 tons... they are clearly not in the same class.

    They are not, SR-10 would fit broadly near PC-21 or A29 Super Tucano or Texan II as they are not entry priston engine trainers and are not either real advanced jet engine trainers but something in between.

    SR-10 jet trainer

    Post  Militarov on Tue May 31, 2016 2:58 am

    "The Russian Air Force began testing a new SR-10 training aircraft in Kubinka is an air base in Moscow Oblast.

    The SR-10 is a trainer aircraft developed by a private Russian design bureau called KB SAT (modern aviation technology). SR-10 is – jet aircraft, with swept wings -10 °.

    According to the same “Engineer note,” the base variant of the aircraft provides for the equipping with the dual-flow turbojet engine AI-25TLSh, K-93 ejection seats with 0-0 capability (and safe escape up to 950 km/h), a “training efficiency” 10% higher on the average than the efficiency of its next analog – the L-39, and an operating cost much lower than the Yak-130: 2,500 USD vs 8,000 USD/fh.



    December 25, 2015 made the first flight of a prototype light jet training aircraft “SR-10”, created in the design office “modern aviation technology.”

    Potential customers can be both the Russian Air Force and Navy, as well as commercial and foreign buyers."

    I know it is being considered as a light jet trainer, positioned between the Yak 152 and 130...but I notice that there is basically very little place for weapons/weapons pylons/cannon pack.
    By weapons, I don't just mean 2 or 4 pylons for weapons, or a cannon pack for in the light ground attack role...but also for actual training in ground attack.
    The L-39 had the option, and I would have assumed that this would be a feature if it is to be also aimed at possibly trying to secure a few exports in replacing ageing L-39's...

    Forward-swept wing prototype aircrafts

    Post  GarryB on Thu Jul 21, 2016 12:46 pm

    I suspect for the Russian market that the L39, while having weapon carrying capability would likely just use the SR-10 for its low operational costs and low airframe cost as a semi expendible step between a turboprop aircraft and a not cheap sophisticated jet trainer.

    The SR10 in this case saves money when the pilot transitions from a turboprop aircraft to a multi engined light jet... it is a step up in speed and performance, in a low cost aircraft that is cheaper to run and operate.

    I doubt they would do any weapon training in the L39 in the Russian AF, and simulation weapon training is much cheaper and will likely become more common as well.

    I am sure a belly pod could be added to the SR-10 to allow simulation of weapon and weapon targeting pod use without the actual cost of expending weapons.

    In terms of export potential that makes it more attractive as a training aircraft, though less attractive as an operation trainer that you could use as a light armed aircraft.

    I would suspect a belly mounted targeting pod and wing tip R-73s would be a fairly potent little short range dog fighter.

    The project of an unmanned aircraft based on the CP-10 aircraft

    At the MAKS-2017 International Aviation and Space Salon held in Zhukovsky, LLC Modern Aircraft Technologies Design Bureau (KB SAT) presented information about the project of the AR-10 "Argument" unmanned aerial vehicle developed on the basis of the well-known light jet Training aircraft CP-10. The first prototype of the CP-10 is now being tested and also demonstrated at MAKS-2017.

    That is an interesting idea... a small light aircraft that allows a pilot to test its flight envelope but then you take out the crew compartment and create a UCAV.

    A modern EO system mounted in the nose and a belly mounted internal rotary launcher with say 8-12 Manpad tubes or ATGM missile tubes and a light cannon like a GSh-23-2.

    A low cost light ground attack platform with air to air capability too.

    With Igla-S or Verba missiles internally it could engage targets like enemy helos and enemy UAVs and UCAVs or take out columns of enemy vehicles fairly cheaply with laser beam riding Krisantema missiles with HE warheads.

    In fact you could carry a mix of HEAT and HE Frag warhead models and perhaps even have a mix of weapons... so 6 Krisantema missiles with two carrying HEAT warheads and 4 with HE warheads for unarmoured targets and 6 Verba missiles for any air threats the aircraft comes across.

    the internal mount means no extra drag when armed... of course wingtip mounted forward looking sensors and fuel tanks could be fitted too.

    Why Igla or Verba? Why not R-73? Same goes for ATGMs, why ground based ATGMs instead of air based like Ataka etc.?

    Why Igla or Verba? Why not R-73?

    For use against enemy UAVs it becomes a numbers and money game... Igla or Verba would be cheaper and would fit on an internal rotary launcher better than the R-73 or R-60MK.

    The universal launcher could carry the tubes of MANPADS or ATGMs.

    Same goes for ATGMs, why ground based ATGMs instead of air based like Ataka etc.?

    Krisantema is replacing the Shturm and Ataka as the standard light ATGM for the Mi-28MN AFAIK.

    It also has the advantage of a long sealed tube launcher that could be made compatible with the Igla/Verba rotary launcher that I made up.

    The key is low cost so ATAKA or even Shturm could easily be used... especially in the HE Frag models while there are still stocks of them available.

    According to this release from the Ministry of Defense, some SP-10's will be ordered for next year.

    This is really good news and the beginning of procurement of something more complex for the Russian military that is coming from a private company.

    SR-10 is what i thought was the designated name though. Translators aren't best, i know.


    Do you happen to know the cost per unit of such trainers?

    SR-10. Good catch Embarassed It was late and I realized something was not kosher but it was escaping me. Don't know cost at all. Read once where it was mentioned they would be half the cost of a Yak-130 but I didn't consider the source to be an authority.

    Note sure what you mean by complex, these light jet trainers seem to be very basic and cheap.

    I am referencing the fact that Russian MoD has only really been purchasing from Russian state run companies or Rostec. The fact that they are purchasing something that is actually more complex than a sniper rifle (which is the only other private weapon manufacturer I am aware of in Russia were MoD is purchasing their products, that being ORSIS) could work in favor of the business climate in Russia and entice more private companies to be interested in both the military industrial complex and civil technology development (they could possibly sell SR-10's as civil aircrafts as well, and to other customers).

    Just saying.

    SR-10 is a civil aircraft. Even RuAF will receive unarmed SR-10 trainers for basic training. It will be free to sell to DOSAAF and aviation clubs and maybe even some private acrobatic groubs will equip with them.

    Just saying.

    KB SAT is until now only a design bureau if I'm not wrong. Now would need to develop its own facilities for serial production, or would need to sign agreements with state plants of aircraft production, agreements that not necessarily will be kind with KB SAT, taking into account that this aircraft would be taking part of the potential future orders of the Yak-130 and the Yak-152.

    Still not an easy way for this aircraft until to reach the Russian Armed Forces. But this is a step to take into account.

    In the public-private companies debate, I do not think private companies are better than public companies because of being private. In fact, to have full control of the companies that design and produce the key armament is positive for Russia. State companies also work with private companies as suppliers.

    Source: Works on New Training Airplane SR-10 Suspended

    So far, the Russian government has not allocated funds for batch production of the future training airplane SR-10, being developed by Modern Aircraft Technologies (MAT) for the Russian Airspace Force. SR-10 proved itself at the last flight trials though, test pilot Viktor Korolev told Mil.Press Today.

    We’ve tested the SR-10 demonstrator up to the spin. The plane spins off perfectly", Korolev said. The interviewee has performed 85 test flights on SR-10 and assured that the airplane had met all requirements for pilot training.

    An insider in MAT design bureau confirmed to Mil.Press Today the suspension of the SR-10 project . "The money has not been granted so far", he concluded refusing to share any details.

    However, upon receipt of the design documentation, the Smolensk Aircraft Factory is ready to launch assembling of SR-10, Korolev said. According to the pilot, the need for a new trainer is obvious. Currently used by pilot cadets, Czech-made L-39 airplanes are no longer manufactured. Their service lives will expire in the nearest years, so they should be replaced by new trainers.

    Earlier on, it was reported that the state trials of SR-10 were deferred to the yearend.

    They can't just put everything into service, and lets face it... this was a private venture... but if it is cheap enough and it does what they want then why not buy them?

    The L39s wont last forever and replacing them one for one with Yak-130s would not be cheap...
