The next batch of Yak-130 airplanes was delivered to Russia.

The party of four Yak-130 combat training aircraft entered the armament of the Air and Space Forces of the Russian Federation. According to the source of the resource Avia.pro, the planes were sent from Irkutsk with an intermediate landing in Novosibirsk, while all the planes have already arrived at the sites of their permanent deployment and in the near future will begin to be actively used.
