Bangladesh ordered 24 Russian Yak-130 light fighter jets worth $800 million in the final quarter of last year, according to Kommersant.

The planes are to be fitted with English-language cockpits and delivery is scheduled to begin next year.

The Yak-130 is a lightweight subsonic trainer aircraft designed to mimic the cockpit and handling capabilities of Russia’s more advanced fighters. The plane can also be configured to carry a small payload of ground attack and air-to-air weapons.
