    The seating for the rear pilot is also good it gives same view to both pilots so they know what is happening in front of the plane

    Well is it more suitable for ground missions vs rouge elements ?

    Can a gun be mounded on this plane ? Machine gun etc or Guided ammunition ?

    I noticed egypt have like 200 of these trainers one of the biggest operators of this platform , its used by many country very successful platform

    It would be ideal to use smart bombs on this plane for ground operations if used for mission ?

    How did the Venezuelans managed to put missiles on the plane can we put any of our missiles on this craft ?

    Its a good trainer only needs a bit more engine thrust and 30 degree wing sweep to give it a feel of a lead in fighter trainer.

    K-8s can carry weapons on its 5 hard points. But those mostly include unguided rockets, unguided bombs, and also pl-5 and pl-7 for air to air role. Here is a link:
