The first FA-2РН 50 combat trainer aircraft arrived at Clark's Philippine Air Force Base, the blog reports bmpd with a link to rappler.com.




“The arrival of these aircraft marks the beginning of a resurgence of fighter aviation Philippine Air Force, which ceased to exist in 2005 after the decommissioning of the last two Northrop F-5A Freedom Fighter fighters being decommissioned, ”the resource writes.



The contract for the supply of light fighter 12-t was concluded in March of this year. According to the schedule, the aircraft will be delivered to the Philippines to 2018, inclusive.

    The beginning of fighter aircraft. So soon they will choose from whom to buy an "average" fighter. "MiG" should be preparing for the competition and the show of our swallows.

      Well, taking into account the quantitative composition of the Philippine Air Force, you won’t get rich on them))

      The Philippines is the closest US ally in Asia. Moreover, the FA-50 is essentially a smaller F-16.

      Our Yak-130 lost the tender to the Koreans. And if I am not mistaken, not without the intervention of the "elder brother". So it is difficult to hope for any subsequent winnings. Although you still need to participate IMHO.

        Korean light fighter is based on
        F-16 technologies. Koreans have a license to
        production of F-16. So they made a simplified version.

          A direct competitor to our Yak-130 ... let's see how the Yakovlevits answer. As far as I know, they are already working on an attack UAV based on the Yak-130 ...
          In general, you need to understand ...

    If there is a country (Philippines), then there must be an army to defend the country, and what kind of army is without aviation today. There is money, there is pride, why not buy your own air fleet. I think that we also need to think about creating some Air Force at their expense, we always need money.

    Koreans have good aircraft .. my subjective opinion is the Yak-130 is prettier, brutal, and more armed ... repeat

      Well, this is somehow by itself. And it is newer than Korean. The Filipinos of the elementary grades will master the school desk, and we are right there ... Until they master, we will have time to make enough for ourselves. And then, as always - they did not have time to create, but already "where to sell?"

      prettier, brutal, and more armed ...

      Where did you get the performance characteristics?
      The weight of the combat load is more than 2.5 tons and 4 tons, in addition there is an airborne radar (based on the state-owned APG-67, the Yak is planned optionally, and it is not a fact that there is a finished project), there is supersonic (the Yak-130 is subsonic, and was generally made under Motosvich Khokhlovsky), advanced avionics (they use almost the same weapons as the F-16). So what is "tastier" than Yak? Just because "cute"? Fuck.

      The Yak-130 cannot be more thrust-armed than the T-50 Golden Eagle with its 8045 kgf thrust on afterburner and Mach 1,4 supersonic. Only the Basmanny District Court of the city of Moscow can recognize him as "thrust-armed".

      These planes can only be used as attack aircraft or bombers (subsonic speed is not suitable for patrolling the border). Anyway, according to normal, they will need to use serious aircraft to guard the borders. Here we are our Su-30 latest export modifications and can offer.

    Koreans certainly well done! From scratch, such complex productions have been developed. From telephones to airplanes. North Korea, by comparison, just lives in the Stone Age. It is indicative .. Of course, without the West, in fact, there would be little, but still.

          And who do you think has settled overseas? It’s safer there.
