Yak-130: fighter, attack plane and bomber in one bottle

8
Before the appearance of the Yak-130, the main trainer aircraft in the USSR Air Force was the Czechoslovak L-39. In the 70-s, this was the best car in its class: the unpretentious and economical Albatross was an excellent flying desk for Soviet pilots. However, with the advent of fourth-generation fighters, the Su-27 and MiG-29 Czechoslovak aircraft were lacking. So it became necessary to create a more modern machine.


For the right to become a new "flying desk" fought two UBS: Yak-130 and MiG-AT. Both aircraft were designed in conjunction with Western design firms. Despite the fact that the Yak-130 made its first flight in the middle of the 90-x, certification of the aircraft began only at the end of the 00-x of the current century.

The need of the Russian Aerospace System of the new UBS is estimated at 250 machines. On the 2017 year, the Armed Forces are supplied with 81 units of the Yak-130.

    The car, of course, is wonderful, but such a nonsense that for the Moscow Region it is somewhat expensive. Yes, and a bit complicated for the cadets (there were several accidents and it took the introduction of another type of TCB to go to it from a piston aircraft

      And what's so complicated about the L-39? Maybe it’s just that the victims of the USE need not a plane, but a wooden horse with a handle at the back, so that mom shows where to go?

      The whole problem is the malfunction of the aircraft complex.

      The plane is new, and no one has canceled the "childhood" diseases. Plus armlessness of cadets.

      Why is another cadet for the cadet? The cadet has already mastered the albatross, this is a single-engine jet fusion vehicle, and the logical extension for the development of the cadet is a two-engine airplane. There is nothing complicated for a cadet who has really mastered the albatross. The machine is complicated, I do not argue, but not for the pilot. My boy is just delighted with the yak, teaches RLE with rapture. And no wonder, how much between an albatross and a yak? about forty-forty years old? Albatross should be sought for a more modern replacement. And leave piston planes to flying clubs and transporters.

    It is necessary to fly around and modify. Nothing perfect exists in the world.

    Yak-130: a fighter, attack aircraft and a bomber in “one bottle” and even if you attach the pedals then the bike will turn out. The country of frightened idiots is not what I said, but Abdulov!

    MiG-AT (product 821, (Eng. Advanced Trainer) is a Russian MiG design bomber training aircraft. It was developed to replace Czech Aero L-29 and L-39 in the Russian Air Force training units.
    After losing the competition (which won the Yak-130), the MiG-AT was offered for export for some time, but by 2010, having not found a single customer interested in finishing the machine, all work had stopped.
    At the Znamya Truda plant in Moscow, as of 2013, there was a production reserve for several copies of the installation batch and equipment for the production of MiG-AT.
    In the presence of the customer and financing renewal of the program is possible.
