Ministry of Defense of Uruguay evaluates the possibility of buying UBS Yak-130

The Minister of Defense of Uruguay, Eleuterio Fernandez Widobro, held talks with the Russian delegation, during which they discussed various financing options for the purchase of combat-capable Yak-130 aircraft.


According to Infodifensa, in addition to confirming the interest of the Uruguayan Air Force in purchasing the Yak-130, the meeting analyzed various technical capabilities of the aircraft. The parties agreed to continue to evaluate various possible options for acquiring aircraft.

The Uruguayan Air Force is currently assessing several options for purchasing new light fighter / UBS, which should ensure the interception of aircraft violating the country's air borders.

Currently, the Uruguayan Air Force has only A-37B Dragonfly and IA-58 Pucara attack aircraft, which are not capable of intercepting enemy aircraft.

Previously, among the main options considered was the purchase of Russian Yak-130 or Chinese L-15, but recently an interest in purchasing F-5 was again shown.

In addition, an assessment was made of the possibility of buying a UCS Tukano or Super Tukano.

      As if now they did not pressure Uruguay from the West, they say it is better to take from the Chinese than from the Russians.

        This is easily prevented - with a subtle hint that when you buy a "miserable likeness" of our aircraft and, completely disappointed in it, again want to buy a Yak-130, its price for YOU will change greatly. Miser pays twice!

    The YAK-130 aircraft is an excellent example of combat training equipment. Uruguay, having acquired it, will not regret it, and will be able to appreciate its flight-fighting qualities.

    A lot - not a little. So let them buy. And there maybe the Russian bases will want to see at home. And from there to America it will be at hand. soldier

    Yak-130 interceptor fighter request ??
    The Uruguayan Air Force is currently assessing several options for purchasing new light fighter / UBS, which should ensure the interception of aircraft violating the country's air borders.

    Currently, the Uruguayan Air Force has only A-37B Dragoflay and IA-58 Pukara attack aircraft, not capable of intercepting enemy aircraft.

    With the appropriate refinement of the aircraft with the stitching of the sighting system, there may still be a light strike, but a fighter-interceptor, whom can he intercept Cesna with another Rust?

      Suspension of a container radar is possible on the Yak-130, then it will be able to use medium-range air-to-air missiles with a radar seeker radar, including R-27, R-77. The melee missiles (up to 40 km), such as the P-73, he can use even so.
