Russia to advance Yak-130 aircraft to Mongolia, Vietnam, Latin America

MOSCOW, May 15. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia is seeking to advance its Yak-130 aircraft to Mongolia, Vietnam and Latin America, Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSMTC) Director Alexander Fomin told ITAR-TASS on Thursday, May 15.

“We are working to advance these aircraft to Mongolia, Vietnam and other countries,” he said.

The arms exporting company Rosoboronexport and the aircraft corporation Irkut are doing the same in Latin America. “Although our foreign partners have reiterated their interest in purchasing this plane, no concrete contracts have been made so far,” Fomin said.

Bangladesh will receive 16 Yak-130 planes before 2016 under a loan provided by Russia.

Fomin said Russia would bid in tenders for the supply of multirole fighter jets, air defense systems, helicopters and submarines to Asia Pacific countries.
