Description: The Mig-AT is a two-seat aircraft designed to provide primary and advanced training for lead-in fighters. It has been developed jointly between the Russian and French defense industries. A redundant fly-by-wire system for enhanced safety and reliability and the HOTAS concept for improved handling qualities have been provided to the Mig-AT trainer aircraft. These features enable the Mig-AT to simulate flight behavior for airborne and ground targets engagements.
The Mig-AT trainer is powered by two French-made Larzac engines rated at 3,150-lb with alternative Russian-made RD-1700 engines. The Mig-AT has been designed to provide training for the Mig-29, Su-27, Mirage 2000, Rafale, Typhoon, F-15, F-16, and F/A-18.
Besides the two-seat Mig-AT aircraft, there are plans to produce the Mig-ATC combat training version featuring a multi-mode radar for precision weapons delivery, a carrier-based version, a single-seat tactical aircraft and a single-seat patrol aircraft. In 2002, the Russian Air Force selected the Yak-130 as the replacement for the older L-29/39 training aircraft.
In August 2005 Svezda company announced that the BKDU-130 oxygen generator system development was completed on the Mig-29M aircraft. The new oxygen generator system was meant to remove the oxygen bottles from Russian manufactured fighter aircraft such as the Mig-29M. Mig-29K, Mig-29KUB, Mig-AT, and Yak-130. Moreover, Svezda stated that there was an agreement between the Russian Air Force and the design bureaus Mig, Yakovlev and Sukhoi on this issue.
