Yak-130 exceeds existing and prospective overseas trainers and combat trainer aircraft by its key operational and technical characteristics, price and training efficiency.
Yak-130 combat trainer is a dual use aircraft. Its design, systems and avionics allow handling various types of guided and non-guided weapons. The maximum external load on eight under wing and one under fuselage stations is up to 3 000 kg, including weapons, auxiliary fuel tanks, weapon guidance, electronic intelligence and electronic countermeasures pods.
Yak-130 features classical configuration of a monoplane with mid-mounted swept wings and a tandem two-seat cockpit. Specific design of the leading-edge wing extensions and air intake provide for stable and controllable flight at angles of attack up to 40 degrees. High thrust-to-weight ratio (0.81) enables the aircraft to withstand significant operational g-loads and ensures excellent take-off and rate-of-climb characteristics.
Other important features of the combat trainer, including protection of air intakes by the landing gear designed for operation from natural-surfaced airfields and excellent take-off and landing characteristics permit operation of the aircraft from small rough airfields.
Fuel is contained in one fuselage tank and two wing tanks. It is also possible to install two under wing auxiliary tanks. A flight refueling system can also be installed for training purposes.
The aircraft is powered by two ÀI-222-25 turbofan engines each having 2,500 kg thrust. The engines are manufactured by FSUE “Omsk Engine Association n/a P.I. Baranov”. The aircraft also features an auxiliary power unit.
The crew is housed in a two-seat tandem cabin fitted with ejection seats.
Yak-130 is equipped with integrated fly-by-wire control system allowing, for training purposes, to change the stability and controllability characteristics depending on the simulated aircraft and perform functions of an automatic control system and active flight safety system.
The aircraft can use its integrated radar or an electro-optical station. The aircraft cockpit is equipped with electronic displays and indicators completely identical in layout to those of fifth-generation aircraft. Each aircraft cabin has electronic indication based on three multifunctional LCD displays (6 x 8 inches) without electro-mechanical instruments.
Onboard attack simulation system provides for simulation of air combat; missile launching; self-defense activation under enemy missile attack and electronic countermeasures; simulation of ground target attacks; release of bombs; gunfire and other training exercises.
Yak-130 avionics complex complies with MIL-STD-1553 standards, making it possible to install new equipment without major redesign.
Simplicity of the structure and high reliability of the airframe, power plant and aircraft systems, long service life and full self-sufficiency of the aircraft as well as its high maintainability together with low life cycle cost and high flight performance provide high-quality pilot training in the shortest possible time and meet different military challenges.
