      Somehow he is suspiciously similar to the L-39.
      "Motor sich", you say? What about service? The jumpers, in my opinion, have already ruined everything.

          "engineer74"
          The colleague of KB Yakovlev from the time of the USSR did not give normal orders. And the engineers working in KB YAK are talented. That's when it was necessary to make a training aircraft. They were happy to make a universal fighter bomber. laughingWhich can easily fight in local conflicts. On the yak 130 trained pilots to maintain their skills or to practice this or that tactics of battle is cool you can. And then a cheap flying school desk is needed. hi

          K-8 costs half as much. Venezuelans took 8 million per plane. Anchor from 15.

            In the dashing 90s, they bought "PANKSONIK" (made ying Chinese cooperative) instead of "PANASONIK" for the money came out 1 to 3.
            There will be the same picture. The main thing is to cut down the headstock faster, and score the market.

        They are partially collected in Pakistan, actually. The kits go to the parent company from the PAC Corporation air camp.

    This is L-39 or its clone, burst my eyes! So also with engines from Maidania. Is Motor Sich still fluttering? Or on old stocks?

    Similar to the L-39 is similar.
    In China, everything new is long forgotten old in Russia.
