The first Czech aircraft L-159A arrived in Iraq

The two first L-159A ALCA aircraft purchased from the Czech company Aero Vodochody for the Iraqi Air Force arrived at the Iraqi Balad base on their own from the Czech Republic, the blog reports bmpd.




The contract for the supply to Iraq of 10-ti light single combat aircraft L-159A and 2-x two-seater combat training L-159T1 was signed in 2014. The agreement also provides for the supply of 3-x L-159A, which will become a source of spare parts.

Under the terms of the contract, 4 combat aircraft must come from the presence of the Czech army, and the rest will be taken from storage. The final transaction value (which was finalized only one year after its conclusion) was about $ 30 million.

              So let them borrow from their masters. They found it on the TOS, on the MI-35 and on the MI-28, they also somehow kicked it out and on the Yak could ask.

                The article is empty, so .. as a background - there’s nothing to discuss here.

        What should they do there? There the Su-25s do an excellent job. Advertiser? For me, a little expensive.

        They seem to have bought Mi-28 helicopters.
        And the Czechs shouldn’t be up to evaluate the L-159, but also in option A, the attack aircraft are not bad and cheap.
        Where is the Yak-130, A, in the assault version? Only in the "proposal". And the goods must be promoted, Syria can be tried as a slave.

      The point is the price. L-159 was created as a UBS, unlike the L-39t UTS, the best engines, more fuel, Israeli radar, and American ASP.
      The Czechs did it for themselves, but then refused, they canned the car, wrapped it in cellophane and put it in storage. For many years, they tried to throw them to someone, but there were no buyers. The price tag fell, fell, until it fell a penny, so Iraq took it. They really wanted to buy a Korean T-50, but it was expensive, so the Czechs got it.

      He is toothy, he can throw a controlled bomb or launch a maverick. If the Iraqis still screw some Talesovsky container, then it will be quite a good airplane for local actions.

      Iraq is now picking up all of the same. He took these 15 aircraft for 750 million crowns (30 lyam bucks) from the availability of (4 used and 11 refuseniks). At the same time, Iraq already has bombs and missiles for them.

    Probably a good plane for training, to strengthen the group and its power, it seems that it will not be enough, both in quantity and in quality.

      They took a pack of L-159 from the availability for the price of two Yaks without weapons.

      Stropnicky said his ministry would receive 750 million crowns ($ 29.89 million) for the Iraqi sale. Four of the planes are currently being used by the Czech air force, while the remaining 11 are stored by the plane maker.

      Used 4 and 11 refuseniks from the warehouse for 28 lyamov. Moreover, unlike the Yak-130, for which the shock modification is only in the plans, and as of now it can only be made from a hanging gun + Cast iron and Nara (but this is not on the production ones, only experienced OKBshnye ones) - the L-159 shoots itself with Mavericks, moreover, Iraq already has Mavericks. And he throws correctable bombs from his LTC, and Iraq also has bombs in the package with F-16.

        And with us it’s always so, the carrier will do quite good that the nuclear submarines, that the aircraft, and there are no weapons, only the junk with which these new devices cost nothing in battle. negative
        Not and who needs the Yak-130 with Nurses? Even the Papuans will not borrow.

    Subsonic guano of Czech manufacture no fighter and no attack aircraft. Only as training can be considered. It’s a pity to the pilots, only you can’t bring down such an ashtray from PM, and even then you can, if you throw a PM higher ...

      Only with 4km he correctly throws himself an adjustable bomb (2 or 4 - 500 carries pounds). Or Maverick hits. MANPADS and MZA are fearless.

      Iraq bought 15 planes for 30 million dollars, this is 2 Yaka-130 naked, and then at a discount. Moreover, he received them in a short time.

      An excellent purchase for them, for the money and given the fact that they already have Mavericks and Bombs. Like a light bomber, reinforcing Grach or a helicopter pair. Now they have this role in general Sesna performs.

      And they have no one to fight in the air with! The broads do not have their own aircraft. With Iran, they are brothers forever today. From the Turks they have a buffer in the form of Kurds and IG. Yes and F-16 if that is. The first ones have already received. In the most extreme case, the L-159 drags two Sidewalks and a radar there is inferior (Grifo-L radar).

        From 4 km and below, any self-respecting anti-aircraft gun from the time of the Viet Cong brawl will turn it into a colander.
        I saw these planes in flight over the Tushino airfield in the 90s of the last century.
        You can hear how it flies in advance, you can deploy all the trunks in advance and peel it in advance until the (iron bird) person releases them ....
        There is no protection for the pilot. Still, it would be possible to use it as a fighter, for example against turntables, and working on the ground would be more expensive for itself. This is not Rook and not A10 and not even IL-2.
        In such cases, even a motor hang-glider (the same Sesna) will be in a better situation, he / she will not be noticed (heard) at least right away.
        And he will definitely not be able to get away from the air defense after the attack (as was expected by ground targets). Therefore, we can once again say that 1 Mercedes is better than 10 Cossacks, especially Western ones.

          Good time. In the first Iraq already used the L-39, in the eighties the Iraqi Air Force bought 81 units and it was very enough (Albatrosses proved to be quite good attack aircraft). L-39 by the way were the flying school desk of the entire Warsaw Pact. L-159 is a direct descendant of L -39. They wanted to buy 30 pieces from the Czechs, something didn’t work out, they spread to the Koreans, they simply couldn’t physically put the t-50s, returned to the Czech Republic and took what was available. Now, at the expense of our Yak-130-when Iraq received them in such quantity? and for what money-Su-25 they bought from us, too, from the reserves of the Air Force

    Iraqi pilots have been taught all their lives at our flight schools and academies. And now, Americans are thinking that a fighter pilot can simply be learned by giving him a training plane. Indeed, with grief you will go to ISIS.

    Firstly, is there a combat training Yak-1? And the second one. Iraq is no longer a Soviet ally, as it was before. His aviation is practically all western. And accordingly, aviation weapons. And is the Yak-130 adapted for the use of western-type ASPs? I think not, unlike L-130

    No, actually. Multipurpose light attack aircraft. The combat training were L-59 and L-139

    Have you tried it? And the YAK is already armored? And supersonic? That is precisely the leadership of our Air Force that declared that as a combat Yak, it’s no good because of the lack of protection for pilots

    Are you sure? Let me quote from the air show:
    The next major refinement of the fuselage design was the reservation of the cockpit. It was necessary to ensure the protection of the pilot from small arms and fragments of shells and missiles.

    And not every aircraft is required to be as armored as our SU-25. Before its appearance there were SU-17 and their export modifications, and were not armored, like SU-25. In addition, the Elka is primarily a light multipurpose attack aircraft, and there are enough such unarmored attack aircraft in the world. They are even about a separate subclass highlighted - COIN. And designed for use where there is no serious air defense

    Quote: Mama_Cholli
    In such cases, even a motor hang-glider (the same Sesna) will be in a better situation, he / she will not be noticed (heard) at least right away.

    So trike or still "Cessna"? And what makes the Cessna better than a specialized combat aircraft.

    Quote: Mama_Cholli
    And he will definitely not be able to get away from the air defense after the attack (as was expected by ground targets).

    Sure? Do ISIS need to understand very powerful air defense with a continuous radar field? In the same way, any other aircraft will not go away in case of adverse situations.
