China presented a new light combat (combat training) aircraft L-15B, which is a modified version of the combat training aircraft L-15 (JL-10). The show and flights took place on November 2 at the Hongdu Aircraft Industry Group (HAIG) flight conference in China, which takes place in Nanchang.

In China, presented a new combat training aircraft L-15B




China's HAIG Aircraft Group showed off its new L-15B light combat aircraft, developed on the basis of the HAIG-produced L-15 combat trainer (JL-10). In turn, the aircraft L-15 (or L-15A) was created with the help of the Russian Design Bureau. A.S. Yakovlev and the Ukrainian company "Progress" them. A.G. Ivchenko. In the framework of such cooperation, Russian specialists helped their Chinese colleagues with the development of the airframe and airborne systems, and the task of the Ukrainian enterprise was to manufacture and supply the required turbojet engines.



Reportedly, the L-15B two-seat aircraft is intended for use as a light attack fighter and a transitional combat training aircraft. The prototype was rolled out on 3 on May 2017 in one of the workshops of the aircraft factory in Nanchang.

As a further development of the Chinese aircraft JL-10 (L-15) and the Russian Yak-130, the new L-15B retains a glider of a similar design. At the same time, instead of the AI-222-25 afterburner engines developed by the Zaporizhzhya Ivchenko-Progress Design Bureau, it installed AI-222-25F engines with afterburner manufactured at Ukrainian Motor Sich. Allegedly, with the help of two engines with thrust on the afterburner according to 420 kgf, the L-15B aircraft is capable of speeds up to 1480 km / h.

The new aircraft has 11 suspension points for weapons. HAIG designers managed to place pylons under the wing and fuselage of the 9 aircraft for the installation of weapons, two more suspension points are available at the wingtips. An airplane has an armament control complex, including a controlled one. The central ventral pylon can also be used to mount a hanging container with an automatic cannon.

The L-15B has a radar with passive phased array antenna. The type and characteristics of the installed radar have not yet been called.

It is expected that poor countries needing low-cost jet light attack aircraft will show interest in this aircraft, and it is also possible that the L-15B will be adopted by the PLA Air Force as a combat training aircraft. Previously, Pakistan, Uruguay and Ukraine showed interest in the aircraft. There is no data on the conclusion of supply contracts.

        Why copy? The article also indicates - official outsourcing, Yak received the money and there is another glider if that. The Yak-130 is adapted for the 500-800km / h range, and the EL15 is adapted for the 1M +.

            Well, why a competitor? In this market, the UTS / UBS competition is huge without us. And we can’t do it anyway cheaper than the Chinese. In addition, we ourselves have a huge need for the Yak-130. It is necessary to equip their training units, and KB A.S. Yakovlev already needs to be ahead of the road to create something new, and again, having gotten a sore point, ENGINES ...

        There is also a constructive, rather technologically serious, difference - the Chinese have adjustable supersonic air intakes. If it were not for this topic, with which the Chinese have been personally "poking around" for a long time, the L-15 had a chance to enter the series earlier than the Yak. As well as with the Italian clone of Yak, with which the Yakovlevites "fruitfully" worked, transferring technology, and the new European M-346 trainer saw a series of years 5 years earlier than the Yak-130, and even equipped with AFAR.

          The Yak-130 is in service with 5 countries. Italian at 4x. And they didn’t hand over the documentation, but sold it for 70 million. That in the 90s was definitely not bad, primarily for the Yak-130 project. In general, both projects turned out to be expensive for a training flight.

            And for you, during the joint development of the aircraft by the two countries, it was "transferred" only without any remorse; dad, as Owl said? Yes, it was more a transfer, not a sale: a joint project to develop the TCB (not for Italians, please note, but a joint one!). Our part of the project was the airframe construction, the rest from Russia "on the little things". At the stage of the already formed, calculated and approved-worked KS, the Italians suddenly break the contract. Ours remain with the thought, and we will make our own.
            The question in the booklet was this was a planned sale ???

          He’s also a student, and imitates the 5 generation, he needs swings. Or the South Koreans with their T-50 are also fools. We simply do not have radars for this diameter and engines with afterburner. That is the whole answer. And development needs to be financed. And Korea just bought a license for F-414.
          PS: And for 25 million you can safely buy a used MiG-29 or F-16, with repair. And at us L-39 are worn out, and Yak-130 are a little expensive, all the same. There are very few orders, then 4 aircraft will be bought, then 12

If he, as an attack aircraft, with its payload in 2,5 tons, put a radar, a new avionics (for URO) and some armor, then he will only carry a pilot. Well, maybe a couple more sandwiches.

          Kazakhstan - it is doubtful, given the purchase of UAVs in China, most likely K8 with a glass cabin will be bought for 10 lyamov.
          Mongolia - as a gift.
          Malaysia - everything is extremely interesting. They need to replace the old Hawks. However, they are loudly arguing with Europe now, on the topic of palm oil (Europe has twisted the tap of purchases). China is not very friend - and they will not buy from it. Remains Korea and Russia in fact. However, Russia is working closely with Indonesia now - and this does not please Malaysia. Plus, Malaysia, like Indonesia, will pay 50% of goods.

          Venezuela - no. Already bought K8. And they don’t want anything else. They are not up to purchases.



          India is very controversial. They have a hundred relatively fresh Hawks. There is its own Sirata, without tears you will not look, but your own. And if they decide - then there will be dances with songs of years on 5, all the more nothing. Feel everyone from Koreans to Boeing, from M346 to Yak.

During the competition for the attack aircraft offered their version. Moreover, the radar is already going to put on the car. It’s just that now the main need for the Air Force is precisely in UBS, and not percussion — the lack of pilots, thanks to Serdyukov, which arose urgently.

Here, even the state’s assistance could be minimal (since he doesn’t need light attack aircraft and fighter jets) - they took up the Chinese order and at the same time thought of themselves.

        What for? VKS does not ask yet. You can’t enter the market because there are two very tough competitors in the face:
        T-50 - complete supersonic, one engine, radar including AFAR from Leonardo, the ability to use AIM-120C5 +. Full compatibility with various containers and weapons of various countries. Good export history. It was used in real battles in Iraq and the Philippines.




        There is the M-346FA - which also has a radar from Leonardo, a huge range of weapons. Glider Yak. Engines are even better (but not supersonic). Trump - 2 Marte-EP missiles. The latest proposal from the Europeans, light anti-ship missiles / universal missile at a range of 100km.


        Plus, this Chinese is on the way. Another Chinese competitor (whom the Chinese Air Force threw in favor of L-15 - but the Navy may order a new version + ordered Sudan, negotiations are ongoing with other African and Asian countries).

        American TX are going to do in the shock version.

        However, the main thing is that at least some real success came only Koreans. And then there were circumstances (war in the Philippines and Iraq). Plus good marketing, relatively affordable price, chic board. The Koreans really sold their T-50 really well in both toothy and poor versions. Toothy M-346FA sold a whole 0 pieces. The Chinese sold 12 eLok not yet toothy and 6 toothy FTC-2000 to Sudan, the Americans are still just collecting a new board.

      As for the fact that the Yak-130 cannot fly supersonic - yes. But 3 tons of combat load! And what about the "Chinese"?
      The suspension is listed, but the weight of the BC?

      It is expected that poor countries needing low-cost jet light attack aircraft will be interested in this aircraft, and it is also possible that the L-15B will be adopted by the PLA Air Force as a combat training aircraft.

      I strongly doubt the possibility of adopting it for the PLA, and for poor countries there are more interesting cars on the Chinese market. Rather, the case will not go further than the prototype

        Doubtful.
        The M346 percussion has two trump cards - the latest Marte rockets at 100km. And you can drag two at once. Suddenly, a relatively cheap aircraft in terms of shock / anti-ship capabilities becomes equal to Rafal or Typhoon. The second excellent board, compatibility, radar thanks to the filling from Leonardo (but again, the latest AFAR from Leonardo climbs on the Korean T-50 and has already been delivered to Iraq, but it does not climb on the M346).


        If you do not take the price, then of all the toothy UBS in metal, now the best FA-50IQ (T-50IQ) is now. But also the most expensive. Given the kits, almost 40 lyamas went for the plane (poorer kits and the worst radar in the Philippines pulled 33 lyamas for the plane).
