Why Americans did not like the appearance of the Yak-130 in Russia


"Flying school desk" Yak-130 is increasingly subjected to "attacks" of American publications. But why, a training aircraft that has existed for several decades, came under the scrutiny of "experts" from the United States? There are reasons for that.


Initially, in the mid-80s, the Yak-130 was created in conjunction with the Italian concern Alenia Aermaccchi. Then the “tandem” broke up, and each went his own way: the Italians built the M-346, and the Design Bureau named after Yakovleva - Yak-130.

The uniqueness of our training aircraft lies in its control system, which is able to simulate the piloting of almost all modern fighters, including foreign Rafale, Eurofighter and even F-35. At the same time, the equipment of the Russian "flying school desk" allows you to perform aerobatics and fly at high angles of attack.

In the process of liquidation of the Russian-Italian enterprise, an agreement was signed under the terms of which our country could use its plane only for its own purposes. At the same time, Italy owned 2/3 of the global market for educational machines.

However, today the situation has changed dramatically. OKB them. Yakovleva began to create a light attack aircraft based on the Yak-130, which is a direct competitor to the modernized F-16 (USA). At the same time, the aircraft is exclusively Russian development and the above restrictions do not apply to it.

It is worth noting that our version of the attack aircraft is superior to the competitor from General Dynamics in a number of characteristics. So, the mass of the Russian Gauntlet (Yak-130 according to NATO classification) is 2 times lower, the price is 3,5 times less, and our combat vehicle is 5 times easier to maintain.
So the Americans are trying to discredit the Russian plane so as not to lose the cherished contracts.

    So, the mass of the Russian Gauntlet (Yak-130 according to NATO classification) is 2 times lower, the price is 3,5 times cheaper, and our combat vehicle is 5 times easier to maintain.

    - is it possible to compare a combat trainer, even in a light attack aircraft variant, with a full-fledged fighter-bomber? And what is the term: "... servicing our fighting vehicle easier 5 times "? What is" easier ", just" simpler "is understandable, but specifically 5 times? What is it measured in? The weight, of course, is 2 times less, but about the same amount of combat load. Vehicles of different classes and destination. Again, the comparison of the MIG-31 with the F-35?

      Here I agree with you. An “analyst” article compares class-disparate aircraft.

    And who wrote that this airplane is compared with the B-52, or others? In their class they always compared, everything, and at all times.
    Do you really think that everyone should follow your habits of comparing .... with your finger?

    If there is such an indicator as “recovery time”, and it is estimated in hours, then they compare the service hours of one with the other. If you never stood next to the kulman of the designer, it would be better if you did not stick out. For you look ......

      First, not you, but you. Secondly - the classes are different, if you understand something at all.

    Another lesson on the same topic: with regard to defense - do it yourself. Brothers, non-brothers, colleagues, partners - let them go ... through the forest.

    Then the "tandem" broke up ??? The fault of the United States !!!
    They put pressure on the Italians and they curtailed their cooperation.
    The Americans criticize the Russian aircraft Yak-130, so as not to lose the contracts imposed on others.
    Our Yak-130, a hundred times BETTER than American flying cans.
    Dearly clumsy, brightly displayed on radars, weak armor and weapons, often break down and are under repair.
    Flying canned US banks can only scare the raven on American farms.
    In combat conditions, they are a REAL target for our missiles.

    They cannot create good planes, these "dermocrats", and envy excellent, good, high-quality, cheap - RUSSIAN AIRCRAFT YAK-130. As the saying goes a lot of money, but the "dermocrats" have no mind.

    In fact, all this is crap. Understood in VO a couple of weeks ago.

    Many have combat training aircraft. The global difference is one:
    our subsonic, and for many, including F-16 - supersonic.
    Therefore, cheaper, easier, the bolts on the skin stick out, the armor can be wound on them, etc.
    Its advantages, in a word (+ Italian design!).

    The United States, by the way, still stores its helicopter attack aircraft and from time to time they are sold to someone. Arabs, Asians, Latinos. Presumably, even cheaper ...

    An interesting article is the author’s self-talk!
    He asked the question himself, he finds the answer himself, he compares the maize with a boat, he searches for “+” and “-”, and draws conclusions. The author overheated either from the virus, or the wife got quarantined ...
    No links, nothing ... !!!
    And blah blah still pay money for this? And the most interesting thing is that the patriot eats it ...!

    First, not you, but YOU. Such as YOU respectfully called - this does not respect not only yourself, but also the country in which I live.
    I was taught at work in KB, for a quarter of a century I was trained that things should be called by their proper names. Hence unpleasant assessments.

        Arkharov! Hi, leave your arrogance. “Weeping” came first into the “world” culture, and then into the Russian language. No need to demand from the interlocutor respect for yourself, earn it, respect. Do not you think that you are naughty now?

    Does it ever occur to the author to invite people like you to the DIALOGUE?

    To know how to live life wisely, it is necessary to know a lot,
    Two important rules to remember for a start:
    You better starve, than what horrible there is,
    And it's better to be alone than with anyone.

      You definitely need so much bile to anyone who at least in the slightest degree thinks differently from you? Or maybe I turned down about “thinking”? Probably sighed at Zarechnaya when you quit, you’re our Macedonian .... What did you change your nickname?

    I sighed freely. I worked for "Zarechnaya" in the years when the salary was not paid at all. And having accumulated a debt for the factory in 5 months, I got everything, only after quitting. Then there was "Vasilievskaya", where he worked until retirement, for 11 years. There, at first, they also did not pay anything, but they gave out poultry meat from the store. There was no bread or clothes, but they did not swell from hunger. They exchanged with friends in Penza what they were given. In 2000, the modernization of the factory began, they began to install German equipment, and it became quite good. Moreover, it was not forbidden to engineer in instrumentation, and to work on the installation of equipment. I was the only one there and therefore behaved quite independently. It was very difficult, but, unlike some, such as argali, we survived and did not lose optimism. My students work in foreign companies, and where I prepared places for them, in a factory. I was also offered to come to the Big Dutchman office in Moscow for negotiations, but traveling around Russia at my age .....
