Yakovlev Yak-130


Recommended Posts

Non ho trovato una discussione dedicata e quindi ... Yakovlev Yak-130 (Mitten per la NATO)


prodotto in russia dalla Irkut Corporation


Lo sviluppo dello Yak-130 iniziò nel 1993 secondo un programma congiunto tra la Yakovlev e l'Aermacchi per realizzare un addestratore avanzato capace di formare i futuri piloti di caccia di nuova generazione, come l'Eurofighter Typhoon, il Dassault Rafale, l'F-35 e il Sukhoi PAK FA. Il programma prevedeva un velivolo caratterizzato da un'ala alta e una singola deriva verticale, spinto da 2 turbofan e con un abitacolo con 2 posti in tandem capace di garantire elevate manovrabilità, stabilità senza rinunciare a una velocità subsonica.


Ma nel 1999, la partnership fu sciolta, perché le due parti non riuscirono ad accordarsi su vari aspetti del velivolo, pertanto i due costruttori seguirono diversi percorsi di sviluppo, con alla base sempre la stessa filosofia progettuale iniziale: l'Aermacchi con il suo Aermacchi M-346 e la Yakovlev con lo Yak-130.

Il 19 maggio 2009 ha volato il primo Yak-130 di serie, nelle mani dei collaudatori Roman Taskaev e Sergey Kara. L’aereo è stato ordinato dalla Voenno-vozdušnye sily Rossijskoj Federacii (le forze aeree russe) in 12 esemplari come addestratore avanzato battendo il rivale MiG-AT.

Benché nato come addestratore avanzato non si esclude lo sviluppo di una versione appositamente per l'attacco leggero.

Grandi aspettative a partire da Farnborough 2012 Yak-130, MS-21 charge Irkut's growth model


in late 2011 of a contract to supply the Russian air force with 55 Yak-130s ... Deliveries under a launch export order for the Yak-130 were also completed late last year, according to Russian media reports, referring to a 16-aircraft programme for the Algerian air force.


With the first export deal completed and a strong domestic commitment also in hand, Fedorov says a company target to eventually sell between 300 and 400 Yak-130s is a realistic one. Earlier this year, he revealed that "pretty intensive discussions" have been held with at least 10 potential new export buyers, and that at least one of these is expected to sign an order in 2012.

"For a few years we haven't participated in air shows with our aircraft, because they were under intensive tests," he says. "Starting with this Farnborough, we plan to start flying our aircraft at all air shows. Potential customers would like to see the live aircraft, not just the model."

Certamente è un velivolo che permette un addestramento molto realistico (anche se con quelle cifre esistono o simulatori informatici molto sofisticati oppure velivoli "veri" usati ) ,anche se a mio parere questo mezzo potrebbe essere stato concepito come mezzo ufficioso d'attacco per gli scenarii ceceni

e cosa diavolo se ne fanno di un "mezzo ufficioso" quando non si sono mai fatti problemi ad usare "mezzi ufficiali" dallo Scarab al Backfire, passando per Frogfoot e Fancer?


forse parlavi di un veivolo COIN... ma non mi pare che i russi siano interessati ad un aereo simile.

Miglioramenti in vista ....


Irkut To Add Attack Capabilities To Yak-130 Trainer ....


By Maxim Pyadushkin


Source: Aerospace Daily & Defense Report (AW&ST) - July 17, 2012



MOSCOW — Russia’s Irkut Corp. is working on improvements to its Yakovlev Yak-130 combat jet trainer that may turn it into a light attack aircraft.


The first stage of modernization includes the installation of an inflight refueling system and optronic pod, says Irkut Vice President Komstantin Popovich. This work should be completed in 2013, he adds.


In the next stage, designers plan to equip the aircraft with radar. Three options are being evaluated, says Popovich. The first is from Phazotron-NIIR. Earlier, Phazotron’s chief designer, Yury Guskov, told Aviation Week that his company had started developing a slot array antenna radar, dubbed FK-130, for this aircraft.


The other options are an onboard radar from Tikhomirov-NIIP or a radar pod from St. Petersburg’s Leninetz plant. According to Popovich, the radar designer and supplier is to be selected by the end of the year; development efforts are planned for 2013-14.


Popovich says the radar installation will provide the Yak-130 with target detection for air-to-ground missiles like the Kh-31 (AS-17 Krypton), Kh-38 and Kh-29 (AS-14 Kedge). “We understand now that the aircraft’s stability allows us to use such heavy missiles,” he says, adding that all these improvements are being made without the Russian air force’s request.


The aircraft can currently carry up to 3,000 kg (6,600 lb.) of combat payload including the short-range R-73 (AA-11 Archer) air-to-air missile with infrared seeker, KAB-500 guided bombs, free-falling bombs, unguided rockets or a pod with 23-mm GSh-23L twin-barreled cannon. The weapons can be fixed at nine external hardpoints: six underwing, two wingtips and one under the fuselage.


Irkut suggests that the Yak-130 attack version could be used in low-intensity conflicts to engage point-surface targets and low-speed air targets.


The Russian air force selected the Yak-130 in 2002 as its new jet aircraft for basic and advanced pilot training to replace the aging fleet of Soviet-era Czech L-39 trainers. It is equipped with a glass cockpit and a reprogrammed fly-by-wire system that can replicate the characteristics of various Russian fighters, fourth-generation and higher.


The basic Yak-130 variant completed government evaluation trials in 2009. The Russian air force now operates 12 aircraft from the initial production batch. In 2011 the air force placed an order for 55 trainers with the option for 10 more. The first batch of 15 under the deal is slated to be handed over this year; the total deliveries should by complete by 2012.

Russia Orders Yak-130 Trainer & Light Attack Jets


the Russian military may not be interested in developing a Yak-131 light attack version, but Irkut thinks there’s a market for the existing Yak-130, and is working to give it a full strike fighter’s array. At present, the Yak-130’s 3,000 kg/ 6,600 pounds of payload can includes AA-11/R-73 short range air-to-air missiles for defense, and KAB-500 laser-guided bombs, in addition to unguided bombs, rockets and 23mm gun pods.

Irkut VP Komstantin Popovich told Aviation Week that work on in-flight refueling capability and an optronic surveillance and targeting pod is expected to be complete in 2013. That would give the Yak-130 the ability to laser-designate its own targets, which is especially useful in counterinsurgency operations. It may also help in designating targets for TV, infrared, and laser guided versions of the Kh-38 family of short-medium range strike missiles, and Kh-29 (AS-14 Kedge) short-range heavy strike missile.

The next step would involve a radar capable of ground scans and targeting for radar-guided missiles like the Kh-29MP, or even heavy strike missiles like the supersonic Kh-31 (AS-17 Krypton). The VVF hasn’t requested precision strike missiles, but Popovich says that the aircraft’s inherent stability allows the plane to carry even heavy loads like the Kh-31. A Yak-130 that could fire such missiles would become a much more dangerous threat to defended targets, and greatly expand the plane’s versatility beyond counter-insurgency.

The enabling radar could come from Phazotron-NIIR (“FK-130”) or their competitor Tikhomirov-NIIP, or it could even arrive as a radar pod from St. Petersburg’s Leninetz. Irkut expects to pick a design by the end of 2012, with development continuing into 2014. Aviation Week.

Vietnam, Malaysia Eye Russian Yak-130 Trainer


Malaysia and Vietnam are interested in buying Russian-made Yak-130 Mitten combat trainers, a source in the Russian delegation at the Air China aerospace show told RIA Novosti on Wednesday.

“Malaysia will need new combat trainers in the near future to replace the outdated Italian-made M-339 aircraft,” the source said.

“The chances are high that Malaysia may purchase the Yak-130 as the country has been one of the key buyers of Russian military aircraft and our planes have been tested there for years,” he said.

The same refers to Vietnam, which has bought Russian Su-30MK2 jet fighters in the past, the source added.

Russia’s Yak-130 is also a competitor in a tender for delivery of six light fighter jets to the Philippines to replace retired U.S.-built Northrop F-5A Tiger fighters.

I stumbled on a Rex Features image yesterday showing a Yak-130 flying at the MAKS air show in a cracking new red colour scheme, and it reminded me of a recent return to the air for its blood brother: Alenia Aermacchi’s M-346.

È una posizione più adatta ad un irst, però non dovrebbe essere nemmeno un puntatore/designatore laser, ma un alloggiamento per un più semplice laser range finder.

Io invece mi sono imbattuto in questo:


Dovrebbe essere un puntatore laser data la somiglianza con il muso del Su-25T ma non ne sono certo.

Secondo me quest'aereo configurato in quel modo sarebbe un ottimo anti-ISIS.
