ITAR-TASS : Bangladesh considers a purchase of 10 Russian Yak-130 planes


My sources say that this pretty much confirmed, so Insha'Allah we will be seeing Yak-130s in BAf colour soon!

Great buying the YAk-130 would mean we will be going for an all Russian(or perhaps Chinese) fighter force in the near future.

Hopefully Purchases of newer Fulcrums and/or Flankers will follow.

The Bangladeshi Air force is back on track.

The yak-130s are almost confirmed.

Also the yak-152 has been chosen to replace the old PT-6s.

There are contrasting reports on this one, but at least 10-16 Mig-29(SMTs or Ms) will be bought to add strength to existing Mig fleet. Or only Flankers will be bought, OR only 8 Mig-29s(to complete the sq) and flankers will be procured.

Additionally, 5 Mi-17SH will be bought as well as an unspecified no. of second hand Mi-35s.

The F-7BGIs will replace the A-5s.

And newer radar systems and SAMs are being searched for.



The massive Russian air craft orders will be financed by the 850 million dollar credit given to Bangladesh by Russia.

Also around 200 new BTR-80MS or BTR-82s will be procured. So far in the last 3 years around 200 BTR-82s have already been bought.

Bangladesh Army is also looking to standardize its 155mm artillery systems. Most of them will be bought from a Certain Eastern European Country/countries, who is quickly becoming one of our largest defense suppliers.

Use of or useless LGB

We in Sri Lanka too were brainwashed some time back that LGB is good and accurate but luckily we had a little bit of brains to first test them. They were not in the least accurate and the firm blamed the F-7 MB aerials and then the cockpit for interference?!. However, they could not keep up to their promises to correct these errors and we did it our way by changing our tactics and also providing pilots real time target information down loaded by our UAV's. We managed to bomb with dead accuracy after that, as manifested by our taking of Tamil Chelvam inside an Internet Kiosk.
Similarly they tried to dump their deep penetrating bombs (bunker busters) and high cost Spike ER missiles. We dodged their offers.
This is why West is so perturbed by our victories. We did not depend on their off the shelf solutions but maximised the potential in our existing resources. This is what all developing countries should be doing.

Highly agree with that!

We have been doing this for decades, its the only way for countries like ours to keep defense costs down.

If you look at the track record of the helicopters and other air crafts in service in Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, you can really see just how good and ingenious our maintenance crews are.


Also in my opinion, Chinese and Russian weaponry are the best solution for most of the defence needs of developing countries- they are cheap, easy and cheap to maintain, are mostly well proven systems and get the job done well.

Also China doesn't really mind, if we tinker with their systems after we have bough them, as far as they are concerned, once you have bought it, its yours and you can do what ever the hell you want with it, and I love that attitude.

The purchases made by bangladesh during the 2012-2013 year-

The following are almost 100% confirmed purchases:

Army: Automatic Grenade Launchers - Unknown , 18 Self Propelled Gun - Nora B-52/K1, Anti Tank Guided weapon - Metis M & Kornet E, Weapon location Radar (WLR) - Unknown, Tank - MBT2000

Navy: 2 Frigates - Jiangwei I, 2 Submarine - Unknown , Cutter - Hamilton class / USCG Dallas, 2 Maritime Patrol Aircraft - RUAG Dornier Do. 228NG

Air force: 16 Multirole Fighters - F-7BGI, 16 Multirole Fighter Aircraft - Su-30MK2/MiG-29SMT), 16 Advanced Jet Trainer - Yak-130, 16 Basic Turoprop Trainers - Yak-152, 3 Medium Helicopters - Mi-171Sh, 2 3D Radar - YLC-2


Also apparently the MBT-2000 deal included an overhaul and spare part manufacturing factory, this sort of explains the high price of the deal.

Glad to hear that all praise due Allah G-d. Hasn't heard to much on the Bangladesh Armed Forces. I knew they had older equipment in there in the 80's. One main thing to do to get your military modernize is make education the key. Bangladesh Armed Forces trying to modernize its with forces with limited money. Bangladesh has made some wise choices so far.

Hopefully we will see the Yak-130s and Sukhois in BAF colours soon!

Also BA recently decided to buy Kornets and Metis ATGMS, they will replace the Baktar Shikan as the Primary ATGMs of the BA.

BAF getting multibillion taka revamp

New Age | Newspaper


Proress also has been made with the nuclear power plants, a financial agreement with Russia has been signed, Russia will fund 85% of the cost of bulding two 1000 MW nuclear powerplants. This really is a milestone.

Bangladesh-Russia relationship is on the rise I just hope we can conclude the air craft deals quickly and earnestly hope that relations won't go south if the current Govt in BD changes in the next election.
