Russia promotes Yak-130 combat training aircraft on the international market

According to the ITAR-TASS, with reference to the Director of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation Alexander Fomin, Russia is actively promoting the Yak-130 combat training aircraft to the markets of Vietnam, Mongolia and Latin America.

“Despite the fact that foreign partners confirm interest in the purchase of this aircraft, specific contractual agreements have not yet been reached,” said Fomin.

He also recalled that by the end of 2016, the 16 of the Yak-130 will go to Bangladesh as part of the Russian state loan.

In addition, the Director of the Federal Service noted that the Russian side is going to take part in tenders for deliveries of air defense systems, multifunctional fighters and helicopters, as well as submarines to the countries of the Asia-Pacific region.

        Main Yak-130 turned out to be one of the most competitive aircraft in the world in its class and much better than the Czech training, which were almost the only ones. Today there was a story that they (Czech, already flying off) are placed on the training ground for firing. And in terms of price and quality, perhaps the best Yak! So that the contracts will definitely be smile

          Before offering a product to someone, you need to be convinced of its high consumer properties, only then you can draw conclusions about its competitiveness in the domestic or international market. The YAK, roughly speaking, is more "sophisticated" in comparison with the L-39, but it is 5 times more expensive. Now there are few YAKs in the troops and, mainly, in the LITS. Half of those who have entered flight schools are already on the ground without spare parts. Recently, the Yak crashed while landing in Akhtubinsk, after which their flights were temporarily banned. Frequent failures of engines and control system elements cause discontent. The engines "consume" more fuel than on the L-39 twice. The glider is normal, but there are problems with engines and avionics, but it is avionics that is the "highlight" of this aircraft, distinguishing it from ordinary "flight desks" (MiG- 15 UTI, L-29, L-39, TS-101 "Ikra", etc.). The aircraft was put into mass production "not brought to mind." It seems to me that putting the Yak-130 up for sale is an attempt by someone (especially those who had previously dealt with Soviet aircraft) to "fuse" and use the proceeds to carry out further development of systems and machine units. It's a shame, but India, sitting in Soviet cars, prefers the English Hawk and its own TCB. The training aircraft should be as simple and safe to fly as possible. Yak-130 is not that. Therefore, there are no contracts.

            Just the other day, there was an article on the use of the Yak-130 as a training aircraft that did not meet the requirements of the initial and main training period for pilots.
            Based on the performance characteristics, the expensive, uneconomical and difficult-to-manage YAK-130 machine is suitable only for subsequent training pilots in combat use, but it seems that the Russian Air Force does not have a machine for initial and basic training.
            For these types of training you need a simple, cheap, and accordingly massive single-engine aircraft, which can only appear after 2020.

      And the Saratov Aviation, literally!, Erased from the map of Saratov. How much was lost and stolen, from technology to super-skilled workers. YAKs vertical takeoff, 40-seat YAK-40, 120-seat YAK-42, not to mention YAKs of the Second World War. And, after all, an airplane based on the Yak-42 would be no worse than the notorious superheat (a word that was not invented in Russian), but much cheaper. So, only the Yak-1 model on Entuziastov Avenue remained from the Saratov Aviation. And this "swallow" could fly out of the Saratov nest, if not for Yeltsin and Gorbachev, who gave the go-ahead for the total plunder of Russia.

    Russia must trade and it must be done successfully and profitably. Our aircraft are very competitive in the world market in terms of price-quality ratio. And the price is lower because we do not take money for "show-off" from buyers, unlike Boeing-type raspoltsovschik ...
    Yak-130, coast and peaceful sky to you ......

Therefore, the struggle will be very serious. We also don’t forget from South Korea, too There is a good aircraft of a similar class.

        Moreover, they offer their own aircraft cheaper. Nobody will vouch for quality.
        But after all, the Yak-130 was created as a subsonic training machine, the Chinese came up with the idea of ​​making their own supersonic with a hint of military use.
        Although the fighting qualities of such pepelats are quite controversial. Of course, they can be used in a combat version (light attack aircraft), but this is an irrational use and a waste of money. Each device has its own purpose.

          As far as I remember, there is "supersonic" for show, because it goes for Mach, so, almost nominally. But afterburners will allow you to accelerate faster when needed.

        It is necessary to resolve the issue with a new engine for the combat version - this will be a trump card. And success.

          As mentioned above, its combat use is questionable. Yes, and the project will have to be redone. As an exterminator, he has a weak avionics, like a serious attack aircraft - there is no armor and the load is small, etc.
          This is a good training plane. Well, or the maximum, the drug defense and the Papuans drive through the jungle. But not more.

            The Yak-130 is a whole complex, based on a new type of training aircraft, which can significantly reduce the cost and training time of pilots of modern combat aircraft. Earlier in the USSR and in Russia there was no such complex. The Yak-130 allows you to practice firing at air and ground targets using existing aircraft armaments, but this does not make it a fighter or a full-fledged attack aircraft. Therefore, the issue of using the aircraft as such in the Russian Air Force is not considered.

    Interest in light attack aircraft in countries remains. And this device meets many requirements. In addition to training piloting - a twin-engine lineup, nine suspension points, three tons of weapons, a two-seat cockpit - the survivability is quite high.

    You need to saturate your own Air Force with 130, and then offer it for sale abroad. This is even more relevant at the present time. And what about the lightweight piston TCB? Have you still not implemented the SU-39 program?
    1. rubin6286
      rubin6286 16 May 2014 18: 04
      Su-39 is, in other words, Su-25TM. Under this index, the aircraft was tested and since 2004 adopted by the Air Force. As the Su-25 fleet ages, they are replaced by the SU-25TM. The use of the Yak-52 is planned as a piston TCB.

    Yes, the same Ukrainian engine, the difference in the afterburner.
    In addition, there is an order for a similar "afterburner" engine for the Yak 130 at Ivchenko Progress.
    There is a comment about the fact that the engine eats 2 times more than necessary - more on that .. Just the fact that the uneconomical engines would not allow them to be sold .. and at least two buyers ... complaints would be quick ..
