The lead-in fighter trainer Yak-130 maneuvers in the sky performing aerial acrobatics This machine by the United Aircraft Corporation, Concern Irkut, is performing in Kazahstan for the first time. But the world-wide aircraft market reacted to its appearance a long time ago. In the US, the small and high-speed Yak was dubbed the “tiny terror”. Why do American experts call the Yak -130 a “tiny terror” of which NATO should be scared? It is an ultralight and super-maneuverable jet that can perform all basic stunts. Pilots can learn how to manage fifth-generation and four++ generation fighters. The Yak-130 can carry three tonnes of high-precision air-to-air and air-to-ground weapons. Besides this, under the fuselage is a 23 mm cannon. Fully loaded, the Yak-130 is two times lighter than the F-16s that are used by NATO and its allies. The digital automatic control system will not let beginning pilots enter into a tailspin on the maximum or minimum high. In comparison to all training jets of previous generations, which were more focused on training, it allows not only for training beginners but can also be used by air forces for reconnaissance and light combat missions. Several Russian helicopters will soon be delivered to Kazakhstan, and by the end of this year, new strike Mi-35s will be sent there. The Russian exposition is the most widescale at the exhibition, from light weapons to drones. All the weapons were provided by around 40 companies and holdings. According to the experts, the sum of all possible
contracts at the KADEX 2016 military exhibition can reach 2,5 billions of dollars.
