        However ... they have 500 pieces of these! This is how much Yak-130 we need to have a stable system for training pilots!

          Well, it all depends on the number of trained pilots request but the second question is how many of these coupons can fly into the air recourse

            And we all Yak-130 can fly into the air? And we have not one fighter, it seems.

              the information somehow didn’t pass, that there aren’t enough spare parts for repairs, but no one has canceled the scheduled maintenance yet, and as I understand it, cadets and pilots fly away on them using military vehicles hi

      Hi! hi The plane is not at all a pity, and I don’t feel special pity for the dead and injured pilots. These are military pilots and it is clear against whom they were being prepared.

      On the one hand, you’re right, but on the other hand, a pilot today costs more than an airplane ... And then one blue and the second seems to have flown off ... So it's not so bad ... Although, a broken F-22B spark would be more beautiful ...

      No. These are Russian hackers from a communal apartment in a Siberian city, so they had fun with nothing to do.
      The Kremlin only intervenes in the elections.

    Sorry for the pilots, no matter whose they are ..

    And about T 38, it’s older than L 39 .. And everything flies ... They upgrade, extend the life to 20, then to 29 ...
    There is probably not enough money, everyone went to 35 apparently .....
