The assembly of a batch of UBS Yak-130 for the Vietnamese Air Force has begun at the Irkutsk aircraft plant

The assembly of a batch of Yak-130 combat training aircraft for the Vietnamese Air Force has begun at the Irkutsk Aviation Plant. A screenshot of the aircraft's fuselage being assembled appeared on the Web, taken during a visit to the enterprise by Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu in August 2020.


As explained by the Vietnamese resource Baodatviet.vn, there is a Vietnamese flag on the Yak-130 fuselage, and the aircraft is marked with serial number 130.12.05-103, in which "05" is the buyer's code, "103" is the third in the production batch, "12" is the number of aircraft in the batch. Thus, it can be assumed that the assembly contains at least three Yak-130s for the Vietnamese Air Force.

Vietnam signed a contract for the purchase of a squadron of Yak-130 combat training aircraft in 2019. The volume of delivery will amount to at least 12 aircraft worth more than $ 350 million.

In the Vietnamese Air Force, the Yak-130 will replace the outdated L-39 aircraft made in Czechoslovakia, which Vietnam has been using since the 80s of the last century.

Presumably, the new aircraft will receive the 915th Training Aviation Regiment, which was formed the year before last on one of the aviation bases. The military unit also includes a training helicopter squadron equipped with Russian Mi-8 helicopters.

According to military experts, the purchase of Yak-130 aircraft opens up the possibility of supplying Vietnam with modern Russian Su-35 or Su-30SM fighters.

Vietnam will become the sixth country, apart from Russia, to adopt the Yak-130. This UBS is used in Algeria, Bangladesh, Belarus, Myanmar and Laos.

For our part, we note that the Yak-130 UBS was modernized by specialists from the Irkutsk Aviation Plant, taking into account the data received from Russian pilots during operation.

      It is alarming that attacks on our tourists have just become more frequent in Vietnam. Some devils in masks and with a chill attack seem to be purposeful. Who drives them is not yet clear. The authorities are "digging the earth", but so far to no avail. And Vietnam is almost the only country that we did not throw in the 90s. And the plane is good, beautiful, which means it flies well

          No, not everyday stuff. Do you think no one went in the summer? It is now that they have fled by winter, such as the crown again and the evacuation cannot be expected. And in the summer it was, right in the hotels they attacked. Roofing felts sectarians, roofing felts do not understand who ... Yes, their KGB will sort it out on the sly, there not only ours were cut

              Not this year. And then there is a chance to stay for permanent residence. drinks My friends in Nepal in the spring were waiting for two months for export. Evacuation in the mountains on the route caught. So we lived on the territory of the embassy for two months. The Germans from the same group were taken out in three days and already they raised a fuss in the media.

        It is alarming that attacks on our tourists have just become more frequent in Vietnam.

        During the times of strong Soviet-Cuban friendship, I often had to visit Havana on business. There were many cases when our screwy "russo-tourist", thinking that they were "soviet-kruteyro", wandered around the city back streets at night, and even tried to slap "kubanas muchachas" on the ass. And, of course, they got rid of the hot Cuban guys, who, in this case, didn't care about all the slogans about Soviet-Cuban friendship. And I wholeheartedly supported them. In general, I had many friends among the Cubans and I have always considered them our most reliable allies. It is a pity that the leadership of post-Soviet Russia threw them so treacherously.

      You are confusing it with the Italian M-346, but it is more expensive. The contract for the supply of 8 aircraft to Poland "weighed" 280 million.

      Correct, there is, but not the South Koreans, but the Chinese. The Sumerians attached afterburners to the engines, which somewhat lengthened the glider, and the speed turned out to be supersonic. And who the Chinese stole the drawings - from us or from the Italians, is the third thing. But one does not particularly hear about the commercial successes of this pepelats.

      For UAVs, hanging containers with guns are enough, or even 12,7 is enough, missiles are still to be spent on all sorts of junk, you know they are expensive.
      And all the same, the Mi24 will be better in that regard, only with target designation the issue will be resolved

            There is a mark. Without a red rectangle, but with a warning in the profile, already the second. The red rectangle in front of the nickname was removed a few days ago - for past sins. And so, I contrived to offend the person who is close to me, and in addition to this - also the respected Administrator of the site, that is, two. Very upset. They may not care, but I have a personal drama due to the fall in self-esteem below the baseboard: loudly annoyed with myself, I offended good people, one of whom took it personally, and the second was offended by his position.

              Didn't you offend me? Yes, not a bit, I dare assure you. Your yesterday's, hmmm, expressions were entirely related to the smartphone. I understood everything correctly, and there was simply no time to pay attention. Champions League, however! And in the morning I saw with surprise that our comments, bye, bye! Both yours and mine. So everything is in order. But about the administrator, I don’t know, I don’t know.
              I'll be busy today - CSKA is playing. Good luck!

    For drones, such as the Turkish ones, used in Azerbaijan, the Yak-130 is not suitable. It has a stall speed greater than that of a cruising drone

    He is already, training and combat. But put armor there, AFAR (if any) and a good plane will turn into devil knows what ... The idea to make an attack aircraft (or a light fighter) out of it has not gone anywhere, but if a light fighter is still all right, then it is not an armored attack aircraft, as here, in VO, many like to say, exclusively against the Papuans, who do not have air defense systems.

      A better idea is to make a light bomber with SVP-24 out of it, working on the ground at altitudes above 5 thousand meters.

      What else to use? Do not arm the "maize".
      We do not have propeller driven, combat, aircraft ... and it is not reasonable to offer other manufacturers.
      Then, even at its minimum speed, it will be in aim / fire position, more than anything else that we have at the moment.
      We have already written about fighter drones, and this will probably be done by everyone who can.
      Let's wait and see.

    the aircraft is marked with the serial number 130.12.05-103, in which "05" is the buyer's code, "103" is the third in the production batch, "12" is the number of aircraft in the batch

    What a dilettantism!
    05 is the factory index of the product, in this case for the GP704. 12 - product modification (export version, for the RF Ministry of Defense - 11).
