After modernization, the potential capabilities of the Yak-130 will approach the Su-25CM attack aircraft.

Advisor to the First Deputy General Director of the Concern Radioelectronic Technologies (KRET) (Rostec) Vladimir Mikheev spoke about the development of a new radar and a new optical-electronic aim-navigation system (OEPNK) for the Russian Yak-130 combat training aircraft, which will give him the opportunity destroy targets while outside the enemy's air defense zone.




“Despite its small size, the Yak-130, in the case of modernization, can effectively solve tasks within a number of combat use scenarios envisaged for fourth-generation attack aircraft and multi-purpose fighters. At the same time, its use would be preferable from the point of view of the economy and simplicity of basing ... The capabilities of the new radar and OEPSK will allow it to strike at ground and air targets without entering the enemy’s air defense system, ”RIA "News".

Specialists KRET are actively involved in the development of a new light attack aircraft based on the Yak-130, in particular, are working on a new OEPNK and radar.

"The new Yak-130 radar will operate under the control of a single combat central computer (BTVM) in conjunction with the new OEPNK system of the aircraft, which will allow the use of high-precision rocket armament, such as the Vikhr-M ATGM, guided missiles R-73E, X- 29L, X-25MS (ML), as well as medium-range weapons, ”said the press service of the concern.

Mikheev stressed that "all this brings the potential technical characteristics of the Yak-130 to the capabilities of the Su-25CM attack aircraft."

      That's for sure. What is an armored cabin worth! But learning to not only fly well, but also to shoot from all guns is a big plus!

      why do he need armor if he can launch an anti-radar missile from 110 km, or cruise missiles 250-300 km away? in its flight performance characteristics.

        why does he need armor

        The attack aircraft is a battlefield aircraft, this is its main function, and with 100 km. any plane can launch a rocket, the point of this, if you need to handle a very specific area somewhere in the gorge. Here definitely armor is needed. As an attack aircraft, it can only be regarded as a counter-guerrilla machine, and even then, provided that the notorious partisans do not have heavy small arms and MANPADS. This is his niche, here he will feel good, but not at the forefront with intense air defense.

          Honestly, I would like to see a real attack aircraft from the Yak. It seems to me that this design bureau may well create a good car of this class.
          For fighters, we have a certain internal competition between Su and MiG.
          Helicopter competition is between Ka and Mi.
          They all do similar tasks, but somewhat different in the "weight categories" of the machine.
          And this is good - on the one hand, it encourages designers to try, because state defense order is not guaranteed. And on the other hand, it allows flexibility in the configuration of military units for various tasks.
          But there is no competition for attack aircraft - there is one old dryer.
          25th, the plane is not bad, tested, but in the absence of internal competition it does not develop.
          I think it would be nice to have a heavy, relatively slow, but well-protected machine with a large combat load, for working under heavy fire (where it is not possible to completely suppress enemy air defense).
          And to it in pair is an easy and quick attack aircraft for prompt response to threats (support for ambushed troops, suppression of enemy artillery, or interception of enemy groups on the march)
          Yes, and Yakovlev’s design bureau would receive stable defense support.

            From the design office there were miserable remnants. Generational continuity is broken. There are no sensible counters and designers.
            As for the Yak-130, it is unlikely to be used as a battlefield, except in a big war. We have modern training aircraft - a shortage.

            What for? the whole world has long abandoned attack aircraft, and there are no projects.

            It is better to create drones with short-range missiles.
            For serious tasks, sighting systems like Sniper. Which we do not have by the way.

              I do not agree with you.
              In all military conflicts involving aviation over the past 30 years, attack aircraft, either ours or foreign, have been used.
              I do not know how they can be replaced in the near future. Attack aircraft allow the use of relatively cheap and effective weapons, nurses, unguided bombs, and automatic guns. You can use an attack helicopter for the same armament, but it is extremely vulnerable to air defense systems, as it cannot quickly leave their coverage area.
              It is better to create drones with short-range missiles.

              Well, firstly, ANY drone, with a similar combat attack load will be more expensive.
              And secondly, in the slightest degree, the essential background is from EW means - and the drone will have to at least go into autonomous mode, in which weapons cannot be used effectively.
              The army of combat drones is a cinema myth. The United States itself in its last conflicts (for example, in Afghanistan), used a-10, and not unmanned raptors.

      I'm not special, but as far as I know the 130th combat trainer. And no side attack aircraft. Why do you forgive him for hanging armor on him? It's like upgrading an UAZ, installing a grain with remote control on it, for example, and then saying gambled out, BTR 80 is better for booking)
      Just the 130th no one positioned as a full-fledged attack aircraft. He has nothing to do at the forefront, in an area with high air defense density. Pulled rocket devils from where and home. Airplane support so to speak).

        The attack aircraft on the BATTLE FIELD works, it should be armored. Su-25 and A-10 - these are typical examples of attack aircraft. You can shoot down a Yak-130 from an assault rifle over a battlefield. And Su-100 and Su-300 can launch missiles from 24-34 km ... A very good "flying desk", only in case of EXTREMELY need an attack aircraft ... Or in Africa, since there are already 30 of them flying in Algeria. ..

    A very wise decision. The Russian Air Force needs a relatively inexpensive, light attack aircraft capable of solving the same tasks as vehicles of a heavier class, but at a lower cost. Moreover, a light attack aircraft can perform many tasks at low speeds, at which the flight of pure fighters is simply impossible.

      Flying desk? You reminded me of Y-2 (Po-2). He fought, even as fought. In principle, these works are an attempt to unify aviation equipment for combat missions.
      It is quite possible a tactical decision, when Su 35 clears the air, and Su 34, Su 25 pressure air defense on the ground, then the Yak performs the functions of cleaning up the territory.
      Beautiful aircraft.

      And who knows - whose rangefinder will be on board the Yak-130?
      Most likely, the Ural Optical and Mechanical Plant software. But this is my personal opinion. Since the beginning of April 2015, the Yak-130 combat trainer (tail number 01 red), modified with installation in the bow (above the cab) of the laser rangefinder. It is reported that the tests are carried out as part of the development work on the creation of a shock version of the Yak-130 in the interests of an unnamed foreign customer.

      The specified revised Yak-130 belongs to JSC Experimental Design Bureau named after A.S. Yakovleva "and is the first pre-production model of the Yak-130, built at the OJSC" Nizhny Novgorod Aviation Plant "Sokol" and made its first flight in 2004 (serial number 94206201001, serial number 62-00-01). In 2014, the aircraft underwent repair, modernization and specified improvements at the Irkutsk Aviation Plant of the Corporation Irkut Corporation, having received, at the same time, a new color corresponding to the color of the production aircraft of the Russian Air Force Yak-130 built in 2014.

    It seems that according to the design of the Yak-130 they want to turn into an analogue of the Po-2 of the Second World War. The P-2 was a purely training aircraft, but the need made it turn into a light night bomber, which proved to be very effective. According to the data, he could take 400-500 kg of bombs. Pe-2 bomber took the same.
    Po-2 was used at night suddenly appearing over the target and immediately left. True, the crew was not protected.

    Not everyone needs a narrowly specialized Su-25 attack aircraft. It is an expensive pleasure to have many different planes. the yak is universal, has a high combat readiness. Requires less staff. Flying hour is cheaper. For it requires another application tactic that will be developed. And durability is a loose concept, Ukrainians also flew on the Su 25 in Donbas, and where are they ...?

        Read the thought to the end. If you follow your thought, then why is the Su-25 being upgraded? An aiming system and the same weapon that is placed on the UC are also placed on it. The goal is to move it away from anti-aircraft fire, i.e. it is recognized that when the launch of the NURSs is fired and firing from the GSh-2-30 Su-25 is at great risk of being shot down. This was shown by the conflict in the Donbas. The same complaints were with the A-10. And from the distance at which guided weapons and night fire (bad weather) are being conducted, the chances of surviving the Yak-130 and Su-25 aircraft are close.
        And we must distinguish between a military operation to cover a tank or motorized rifle platoon and conflicts with low intensity. There is a different air defense. And we must not forget that part of the functions of attack aircraft passed to the Mi-28 and Ka-52 helicopters. Which have a reservation on the principle of Su-25 and work just in conditions of strong air defense

And how will he provide direct support to the infantry without entering the enemy’s air defense zone? And if he does, he will not be allowed to fly for a long time. After all, just to solve these problems, A10 were created for minke whales and 25 SU with us. Of course, the fact that Yak’s capabilities are striving to expand is commendable, but it’s hardly worth confusing
