There is a very real problem emerging in the fighter community today. The aircraft currently used to train fighter pilots started production in the 1950s and 1960s and are approaching the limit of their service life. Age and attrition as well as widening gaps between past and current technologies are creating concern in many fighter communities around the world.


Because 4th generation fighters today are more complex and capable than ever before, fighter pilots must properly trained to operate their aircraft at the maximum envelop to fully utilize the fighter capability during combat. To address these critical issues, the Republic of Korea Air Force (ROKAF) has commissioned Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) and Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company (LM Aero) to develop and produce the T-50 for the ROKAF.

That was, erm, not so insightdul at all. Perhaps you should know that this kind of one-liner posts are not encouraged by the staff here.

Russia also has a 4th gen trainer, the Yak-130, which like the T-50, also serves as a light attack aircraft. Meanwhile, the USAF are expected to be using upgraded T-38 up to 2020.

My own take is that the K-50 is an excellent aircraft, far better than the BAE Systems Hawk et al though I would be wary of the US engine if I was an export customer. Israel is often cited as a potential customer, in whixh case it could easily accomodate the Derby BVR missile in a secondary fighter role (assuming they fitted the radar, or a podded radar). In a 'perfect' airforce it's a toss up (sorry) between this and the AMX-T for the most useful advanced trainer IMO.

It's basically a trainer for the F-16. And it really does not suck. It may not be the most interesting aircraft out there, but having slown it in a few flight sims (4) I can tell you that this is a pretty fun aircraft to fly.
