The Czech Republic intends to create an attack aircraft based on the L-39NG Albatros trainer

The Czech company Aero Vodochody intends to create and offer potential buyers an assault version of the L-39NG Albatros trainer. According to the company, aerodynamic tests of the new attack aircraft have already been completed.


The research was carried out in a wind tunnel of the Czech Aerospace Research Center in Prague. Based on the results of the tests, data were obtained that will allow the creation of an assault version of the training aircraft. According to the company's plans, flight tests of the new attack aircraft should start as early as 2021.

L-39NG (NG - next generation, new generation) is the newest version of the Czechoslovak combat trainer aircraft L-39 Albatros, which made its first flight in 1968 and was produced for the USSR Air Force and the countries of the socialist camp. The new aircraft received a composite wing and lost the additional fuel tanks that were located on the wingtips of the base Albatros. The modernized American FJ25-39M was installed on the L-44NG instead of the Soviet AI-4TL jet engine.

Also on the L-39NG installed new avionics of the company Genesys Aerosystems and the indicator on the windshield Speel Praha. In total, more than half of the components and assemblies of the aircraft are replaced by new ones.

The length of the L-39NG is 12 meters, and the wingspan is 9,6 meters. The maximum take-off weight of the training aircraft is 5,8 tons. It can reach speeds of up to 775 kilometers per hour and fly over a distance of thousands of kilometers to 2,6. The aircraft is equipped with five suspension points for different types. weapons total weight to 1,2 tons.

    So they seem to have already created. But nobody bought it.

      Here you are not entirely right. This aircraft failed to replicate the success of the L-39NG Albatros trainer aircraft, which is primarily due to the collapse of the USSR and the Warsaw Pact. But overall the plane is not bad. The L-59 and L-159 are used by the Czech Air Force and a number of smaller states. Several of these planes were bought by American private aviation military companies, which use their combat training under contract with the Pentagon to simulate enemy aircraft.

      Iraq. And he even threw it into battle. And yes, the Su-25s were also urgently purchased from Iraq (from Iran and from the presence of the Aerospace Forces).

      Who needs it? For Africa it is expensive, for Europe and Asia it is the last century. Now this niche is firmly and confidently beginning to occupy shock UAVs. The century of light manned attack aircraft is over.

      As far as i remember, during the Soviet Union our cadets flew on them - L-29 and L-39. I saw them up close a couple of times and understood why the cadets called them "flying stool" ... Far from aviation and on such a little girl I would be scared even with an instructor. Another thing is the native IL-76.

      The L-39 will probably fit into such a belly. And if you tamp it with kicks, then not one. laughing

      I also remember, as on two or three of these under Dudaev in Ichkeria, they were hung on a pair of machine guns and declared them "strike aircraft of independent Icheria." Where did the Soviet Officer Dzhokhar Dudayev go and at what point did he turn into what he turned into?

    Well, you can understand them, except for the union, the plane is not needed anywhere else, and the plant is also unwilling to roll out. They are trying to attach them somewhere.

    The waterways cut out all Elku. They are not capable of anything without the USSR.

    We wrote here that the Yak 130 is capable of performing the function of a light attack aircraft, but for some reason, neither in Syria, nor in the exercises, he was not noticed in applying the bshu, but he will be newer than the tree.

    20.09.2020/39/39 The L-21NG combat trainer, developed by the Czech company Aero Vodochody, has completed certification. Obtaining a certificate means that the aircraft is flight-safe and meets safety requirements. Certification is also a basic requirement for deliveries to customers. It is noted that the L-300NG became one of the first aircraft certified according to the new supranational military standards (EMAR XNUMX and EMACC), which means that its certification is recognized by all military structures of the EU and NATO. In total, as part of the tests, about XNUMX test flights were carried out on two flight prototypes, as well as extensive ground tests on two other samples.

    L-39NG

    With the Yak-130 and M-346, the comparison is losing, even with the new engine))) Elka was outdated in the USSR, and now even more so))) wink

    It is time for Russia to get away from the word completely from the products of the Czech aircraft industry, because there is no need to feed the European participants ... and the former armory workshop of Hitler where the victory of the USSR in the Great Patriotic War and the role of the Soviet soldier in the liberation of Prague are not respected

    It seems that from the moment of "entering Europe" the famous Czech aircraft designers have NOT invented ANYTHING NEW!

    Cheaper and easier to operate. Little is left of the old eLka, if only the appearance, but even the fuselage has undergone changes. And most importantly, the engine (!), Avionics (!), The ejection seat and all components (!) Are of European and American production, it is more attractive for those who are accustomed to western aircraft.

    The Czechs are doing the right thing, they do not want to lose the status of an aircraft-building country, to lose technology. In their Air Force, the Swedish Grippens are on lease, and for a long time the main unit of their air defense was just the ELK.

    Funding for a new series of assault aviation (battlefield aviation) will be only those who are confident in future demand and the presence of the battlefield itself in the regional proximity to the industrial assembly site.
