The Irkut Aircraft Corporation has received about 10 applications from Latin American countries for the supply of Yak-130 combat training aircraft, the head of the Irkut delegation Viktor Lichaev told RIA Novosti at the arms exhibition in Rio de Janeiro.
There are applications for the Yak-130 from Bolivia, Peru, Paraguay, Chile. Argentina and Colombia are showing great interest in the aircraft. "The region as a whole is striving for political independence from the United States and NATO. There is an aspiration of Latin American countries to diversify weapons systems," the head of the Irkut delegation explained.
According to him, Irkut estimates the Latin American market for the Yak-130 at 150 aircraft.
