    Well, good for the italian industry (and for their suppliers)... i just don't understand why that and not the yak-130...

    By the way, there was a market share agreement between Alenia and Yakovlev, where Alenia wad able to Nato countries and Yakovlev to CIS countries and allies, but apparently it was only for 10 years...


    Edit: by the way, is it true that Russia refused to sell aircrafts to Azerbaijan?

    If not maybe they could start replacing fruits and vege3 imported from Azerbaijan with those from Iran
