The Iraqi Air Force received the first X-NUMX T-6IQ training and combat aircraft manufactured by Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) South Korean Aircraft Corporation, reports bmpd.




It is reported that the aircraft arrived in Iraq last year, but putting them into operation was delayed.

“Airplanes are coming into service of the 204 training squadron of the Iraqi Air Force, which is to be deployed at Tikrit air base north of Baghdad, but due to the fact that Tikrit continues to remain in the area of ​​activity of the terrorists, the aircraft are temporarily based at the Basra airfield,” the material says .



A contract with a Korean corporation for the supply of X-NUMX-x UBS T-24IQ was concluded at the end of 50. The transaction value was $ 2013 billion. The cost of the contract also includes the preparation of Iraqi flight and ground personnel.



In addition to Iraq, South Korean T-50 aircraft were purchased by Indonesia, the Philippines and Thailand.

    Some kind of expensive fighter, the price of which under the contract is about $ 45 million for 1 piece, including maintenance and training. The plane did not participate in combat conditions anywhere, a new one, probably there are childhood diseases. Along the way they lit Iraqi suckers. Our analogue of the Yak-130, which is already being supplied to Syria, Sudan, Egypt, costs about 10 million. dollars per unit

      Iraq already has nothing of its own, including sovereignty and .... money. Everything is decided in Washington, and money is allocated in Washington. And in this case, money-credit was allocated for a certain purchase, at the expense of Iraq, to ​​support its "Asian ally"

      This is not a fighter, although it is intended to be used in such a manner.
      The Yak-130 is also a UB, but it’s quite a light bomber, if you attach an aiming station to it, you just need a marketing move in this direction and poor countries will go buy a light bomber, but the T-50 is “almost F-16”, use it it does not make sense as a fighter, since it will cost almost like an F-16, but our Yak-130 will not increase the price when converted into a forehead. Of course for the Yak-130 would expand the range of weapons - in general there would be chic
