    It LIFT (LEAD IN FIGHTER TRAINER) which means its its can be use to practice ground attack mission trainer for much sophisticated Russian jets like Su-34/24
    and YAK=130 can carry much less weapon loads than Su-25
    Su-25=4500 kg
    Yak-130=3000 kg

    PGMs allow it to be effective with a targeting pod though for air forces that can't afford Su-25 or want duel role jets.

    Nothing as such. It is just an Advanced Trainer with ground attack capabilities like most of the advanced trainers out there. More apt comparison would be Chinese L15 or T50 which has similar capabilities. A10 was is a beast in its own class with no parallel.
