Description: The MiG-AT was a replacement for the ageing fleet of L-39 and the Aero L-29 military aircraft's. The project began in 1992 at the Sukhoi and Yakovlev bureau's. Some time later the only two jets in competition where the MiG-AT and the Yak-130. However, after the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, military spending was short and Mikoyan decided to collaborate with two French companies named Snecma/Turbomeca and Sextant Avionique (later would become Thales Avionics). These companies would provide the engines for this aircraft. After nothing being done for almost two years the Moscow Aircraft Production Association (MAPO) completed the first prototype. Later in 1995, MiG and MAPO would combine to form MAPO-MiG and would combine funds to complete the aircraft. 

 

The first aircraft rolled off production in May of 1995 where later it would be transferred to Zhukovsky International Airport in 1996 for test flight. The second prototype joined the test flight program in 1997 while the first prototype already had 200 test flights. Unfortunately in 2002 it was beaten by the Yak-130. Since the Russian's worked the French would help in selling the aircraft to the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). Russia would also market the aircraft to countries who had already purchased the aircraft.

I think this is the perfect example of what a jet for an event would be. 

Also, with these loadouts:

I strongly recommend at least 10.3 BR for it, regardless of its top speed, because with those missiles it could get guaranteed kills almost every time they're fired. A good example of a jet with subsonic performance but terrific missiles and high BR is the Hunter F.6 at 10.0. Now imagine the same concept but with even better weapons.

This will make a great premium or event aircraft while the Yak-130's will be the researchable aircraft since the Yak-130 is chosen over the MiG-AT and they fill the same role as a light attack and advanced trainer aircraft

The MiG-AT should only carry Russian AAM's though since those particular missiles are intended for foreign countries that used them, Russia never used Sidewinders or Magic's and the AT never got out of the Prototype phase let alone operated by nations that used either missile

Hmm, this seems like a premium or event, while the Yak-130/131 should be a tech tree aircraft for ground strike, like the A-4B.

 

Anyway, if it gets the big boy AAMs like R-73 or R-77, this is a 10.0/10.3 aircraft. If it doesn't, then it's more like a 8.7.

 

IMO what should happen is this: 

MiG-AT with good AAMs as a 10.3 event

Yak-130 with restricted AAMs as a 8.7 tech tree


I might end up making a Yak-130/131 suggestion, unless anyone else wants to

+1for the plane, but i'm against those AAM , we need more light fighter/attacker they are really fun to play

I believe that the MiG-AT shouldn't get these air to air missiles at all until other jets have them
