Vietnam will purchase a batch of combat training aircraft Yak-130 in Russia


Last year, Russia and Vietnam signed a contract to purchase a squadron of combat training aircraft Yak-130. The scope of supply will be at least 12 aircraft worth more than $ 350 million.


This is reported by the publication "Vedomosti"referring to two managers working in the defense industry.

The Yak-130 batch will replace obsolete L-39 aircraft manufactured by Czechoslovakia, which Vietnam has been using since the 80s of the last century.

Supposedly, the 915th training aviation regiment, which was formed the year before last at one of the air bases, will receive new aircraft. The military unit also includes a training helicopter squadron, equipped with Russian Mi-8 helicopters.

The Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation of the Russian Federation and Rosoboronexport declined to comment on the details of the contract.

Andrei Frolov, acting editor-in-chief of the Arms Export magazine, believes that the purchase of Yak-130 aircraft opens up the possibility for Vietnam to supply modern Russian Su-35 or Su-30SM fighters to this country. At least Belarus and Myanmar immediately after the acquisition of the batch of Yak-130 entered into contracts with Russia for the supply of Su-30SM.

Earlier, the manufacturer finalized the Yak-130 UBS, based on data received from Russian pilots during the operation of these combat training aviation.

Recall that recently the western edition of Military Watch put the Yak-130 in "last place" in the UBS list. This rating can hardly be called unbiased.

    In principle, it is logical, not to buy from the Chinese

      Nevertheless, China took the second place in the world in arms sales, second only to the United States and bypassing Russia. Four Chinese corporations can enter the top 20 companies in the arms market.

        So what??? How many "ahead" ???
        The main thing: TO SAVE, INCREASE volumes and EXPAND the markets! Well, who is there "ahead" .... If the TEMPORES of development will not be lost .... (and the "effective managers" will not stop "hit on the head with a stick"!!!) - Well then, MARKETS AND VOLUMES OF SALES - DO NOT LOSE !!! hi

        There it is. Want to buy the best, buy from Russia, want to buy cheap, buy from China. And if there is no freedom of choice, then the "masters of the world" will be obliged to buy three-expensive American. Everything is simple.

      Yes, there are not many options. The Chinese - cheap, but somehow not Feng Shui. In Europe or the USA - Feng Shui, but expensive. It remains - Russia

    And slowly the Yak130 becomes the most massive (in terms of export) TCB.

    Well, so the Vietes had no particular choice:
    eLki all - or rather, you could take it like Iraq 159, but they are at the price of fighters.
    K8 - China, that is, the main enemy.
    in the USA - now a little cooling off and they could only be taken by the killed T-38s as a gift (it is possible that they will be taken by the way, but later).

    Real suppliers for Vietnam 3:
    - M346 - but it is significantly more expensive (the minimum package would be pulled by 500+).
    - The T-50 would have come out a little more expensive (280-300 million for 12 bare aircraft + dopa). However, again, there must obtain the consent of the United States.
    - Yaki.

    Well, maybe they decide to buy a Su-30 from Irkut. Then they have very dull, primitive 30M boards from the fixprice. Without over-maneuverability, with a modernized a bit of radar sword from the 80s, well, etc.

      Colleague, you are not quite right! (Even most likely - “Levs,” but not to be confused with Lions!)
      At the request of the customer (depending on the wallet), we can supply any wunderwaffle, even imported (and even despite the Yankees bans), or ours ... but in the "import" version.
      And this is done simply: what the customer lacks to equip the side is purchased, and we only install this equipment.
      So, you can put dviguns with OVT, and attach AFARs, and BVB-DVB missiles at the request of the customer to customize ... Just know pay!
      AHA.

        No. Historically 2 different sides with their production sites:
        Komsomolsk made cheap Su-30M (M2 / K / MK / MK2 / MKV / MKK, etc.). They had an old Sword (the basic Su-27 radar) with modernization and a ground channel, old engines and generally grew out of the Su-27UB. It is these aircraft that Indonesia bought for example, Vietnam, Venezuela, Uganda and other countries where there is little money.

        Irkutsk was chosen as the site for the Hindu mega-contract - from there came MKI, MKA, MKM, SM. This is already a much more advanced board, made according to a separate program (initially for India) with a lot of additions and changes at various stages. Such aircraft bought Malaysia, Algeria, India.

        The Komsomol board cannot be brought to a standard above M2 / MK2. This is not required. The line for the production of this aircraft was closed after the last support contracts for the aerospace forces were closed - where they went to the niche of the Su-27UB, several cars for parts on new aircraft (Su-35, Su-27SM3). Now you can buy only the Irkutsk board, which is much more expensive in the airbase itself.
