I just wonder if there's someone who's working on/planing to work on this little beauty.

      View File [Fictional] Yakovlev Yak-130F for Strike Fighters 2
      Yakovlev Yak-130F for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2 
      This is a simple mod of the Yak-130 by UllyB to create a fictional Yak-130F in service with the Finnish Ilmavoimat in the 2016-2030 timeline.

      BACKSTORY
      At the end of the Cold War the Finnish Air Force relaxed it's policy of alternating it's combat aircraft purchases between Soviet and Western types and replaced both the Saab Draken and the MiG-21 with American F-18C and D Hornets with the F-18C's being assembled by Valmet in Finland. Soon after Finland declared that all the provisions of the Paris Peace Treaties, including those limiting the size and scope of it's armed forces, were nullified. This closed the door on Russian exports to Finland until September 2011 when, unexpectedly, the Libyan National Transitional Council cancelled Libya's order for six Yak-130 advanced jet trainers. Almost immediately, the Russian Government instructed the Irkut Corporation to offer these aircraft to Finland at a discounted and allegedly heavily subsidised price.
      The six Yak-130's were delivered to the Finnish Air Force Academy in Tikkakoski with the first aircraft arriving in November 2012. Finnish Air Force officials were so impressed with the Yak-130 that they recommended to the Finnish Ministry of Defence to make a further purchase of the Yak-130 but specifically tailored to the light attack role and with the benefit of reducing the number of aircraft required for the Hornet replacement programme (later re-named as the HX Fighter Program). With input from the Irkut Corporation and the Finnish Air Force a new export version of the Yak-130 was quickly drafted and offered to the Finnish Government as the Yak-130F (F=Finlyandiya). In March 2013 Finland ordered 14 Yak-130F's for delivery during 2015 and 2016. Entering service with the newly re-formed Fighter Squadron 21 at Pirkkala in May 2016 the aircraft operate in the light attack role with a recent upgrade allowing them to use GBU-32 and GBU-38 precision guided munitions.

      INSTRUCTIONS
      1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the Yak-130F folder into your Aircraft folder.
      2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the Yak-130F folder into your Decals folder.
      3. From the WEAPONS folder drag and drop all files into your Weapons folder. This simply adds some weapons to give you the loadout I've chosen but you can select whatever you want.
      That's it!

      CREDITS
      As always, thanks to Third Wire for a great little game/sim.
      Special thanks to UllyB & team for bringing us the Yak-130. His original read me is included.
      Thanks also to EricJ and rusty_hawk for the GBU-38 and to ravenclaw_007 for the LAU-68.
      And, finally, thanks to everyone in the wider Third Wire community.
      Regards

      This mod is dedicated to BPAO, nothing would have been possible without him.
      Two-seat trainer for Iraq. 18 ordered of which 15 were delivered between 1980 and 1989. The extra seat and controls added only 30 cm (12 in) to the length of the fuselage, but at the cost of less internal fuel capacity and the loss of the internal cannon.
      The empty weight increased by 200 kg (440 lb), partly due to the addition of two Martin-Baker Mk 10 zero-zero ejection seats.
      Aircrafts 4609 to 4614 came into service in 1988 and later.
      A big thank to all on Combatace and C6 forums that helped us solving issues we encountered.
      Any omission in credits is totally unwanted, if I forgot somebody, let me know, I will correct this.
      This addon is and will in all cases remain freeware.
      Released under CombatAce Fair-Use terms.
      Enjoy
      The Mirage F-1 Team.

      The French Air Force ordered 20 Mirage F1Bs, a two-seat operational conversion trainer; these were delivered between October 1980 and March 1983. The extra seat and controls added only 30 cm (12 in) to the length of the fuselage, but at the cost of less internal fuel capacity and the loss of the internal cannon.
      The empty weight increased by 200 kg (440 lb), partly due to the addition of two Martin-Baker Mk 10 zero-zero ejection seats, in place of the Mk 4 used in the F1C, which had a forward speed limitation.
      See the readme file for more informations.
