The Yak-152 is the RuASF's new primary trainer. The type is urgently needed to replace the ageing L-39C and underwent accelerated development in 2016 and 2017. Service entry is expected next year at the earliest.
An example of a RED Aircraft GmbH A03T V12 engine was displayed with the second Yak-152 prototype, side number 02. The second Yak-152 is painted in a red, white and yellow livery to promote the type to the civilian market.
