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.
