    I know this isn't Russian Air Force, but it is Yak-130 except of the Bangladeshi Air Force and apparently either one hell of a crazy instructor or wild ass trainee, but either one made a horrible decision to perform a roll at something like 300 ft off the ground, lost orientation once recovering from the roll belly slammed into the ground and the rest is history.

    This happened about a month ago. Both ejected, the latest is one died the other in critical condition.

    Regarding the AESA... a training aircraft does not need an AESA radar... the Yak-130 doesn't have any sort of radar, unless it fits into a centreline pod.

    The Yak-133 was supposed to be a single seat fighter version of the Yak-130 trainer, but they have been talking about that and the unmanned drone version for some time now.

    I rather suspect this AESA radar was the competition for the Yak entry for a light 5th gen fighter in competition with the Su-75, and they are putting it out there as an option before the MiG and Sukhoi fighters make LIFTS obsolete.

    If the Su-75 is 30 million and only 5K per hour operating costs then why buy a LIFT when your operational light fighter is probably cheaper to operate.
