Yak-130 as successor for A-10 or SU-25: One big difference - while the Yak can fly slow and low and has decent weapon capabilities it has no, as in zero, protection for the pilot. No titanium bathtub or the like. It is a trainer that can do some groundwork when needed. It is not a real earth eater.

Sure, better than risking an expensive fast mover. But I'd rather fly something different for close air support.
