    On the topic of the Yak-130, I just read that Irkut has 142 confirmed orders for it on its books...

    Behind ERA means that it already punched through era, which is very effective against HEAT charges, so against a target without era the penetration should be higher?

    No true.

    The first two Ka-52s flew over the red square on May 9th with their gear up. Look at the photos from the parade.

    Russian helicopters flying with landing gear down might have something to do with improvements introduced during the Afghan War. When Taliban got Stingers, Soviets adopted the strategy of flying very low to avoid missile lock. Landing gear was improved as a consequence, to allow the crew to survive sudden engine failures or missile hits (5-6 meter falls). It would seem logical that during low-level, low-speed test flights landing gear stays down as a passive safety measure.

    This is a beautiful bird for all intents and purposes.
    Are you kidding? What export version? It's new aircraft, flying computer as some call him.

    Ladoga is a vehicle which can work in radioactive or other contaminated areas.
    Ladoga has no arms.
    It's first "combat" run was Chernobyl. evidence:

    actually, they kicked front passenger, not driver. Such idiots (speaking of runaway) should be shot on place. It's miracle that nobody else got hurt.

    you are the one kidding here. MoD orders are hardly enough sustain the aviation industry and Yak is no exception. There's been quite a few articles and publications that mention export version of this bird. Like it or not it will be exported. The industry needs export. I ll put a link if I can locate one.

    Looks like the optics would easily get damaged in case of "hard" or rough landing... (depends on how much the front suspension travels).

    Other question about Vikhr:
    Is it fast enough to hit jets or is it only effective against helicopters?

    What i wanted to say, that YAK-130 don't have export version, and afaik, only Syria is ordering it. As i remember, only engines are changed.

    It is effective till the UFO reaches 800km/h, meaning it's against helicopters, ekranoplanes, jets flying near to cruise speed and against other undentified flying objects(flying tanks included)

    ALgeria has ordered 16 of them as well. Not so sure about Syrian order. But I am certain other countries who use Russian aircraft (Venezuela, Lybia etc.) will order this plane.

    One has to realize that modern jets like MiG, Sukhoi, Rafale, Typhoon, Gripen are getting increasingly unaffordable for more and more countries.

    Airplanes like the Yak-130 that can do both training as well a number of combat duties should have a bright future.

    As for a current export version, I havn't heard of one yet. But I expect this plane to be offered in the future in a number of configuration including a single seater. There may be some export versions coming up too.
