    Rosoboronexport Deputy Director General Sergey Goreslavsky said that Russian state arms exporter Rosoboronexport with the Irkut Corporation, are working on the issue of showing the Yak-130 combat trainer aircraft in Uruguay, Brazil, Bolivia and Peru in 2017.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russian state arms exporter Rosoboronexport is working out ways to show the Yak-130 combat trainer aircraft to potential buyers from Latin America, Rosoboronexport Deputy Director General Sergey Goreslavsky told Sputnik on Tuesday.

    "At the moment, we, along with the Irkut Corporation, are working on the issue of showing the Yak-130 combat trainer aircraft in Uruguay, Brazil, Bolivia and Peru in 2017," Goreslavsky said on the sidelines of the Army-2016 military forum.

    The Yak-130 is the world's only training aircraft with an aerodynamic configuration and the subsonic flight performance characteristics of modern jet fighters. The two-seat reconnaissance and light attack jet has a combat load of up to 3 metric tons.

    The Russian Defense Ministry's Army-2016 forum is taking place on September 6-11 in Kubinka, a western suburb of Moscow. The forum brings together representatives from the Russian defense industry, research institutes, universities, as well as foreign companies. Over 800 Russian and foreign participants are expected to be involved in some 7,000 exhibitions throughout the week. The forum's participants and guests will attend a number of conferences and roundtables to discuss the future development of military technology.
