The L-39 Albatros is a low-wing, high-performance jet aircraft that doubles as a trainer and light attack aircraft. The Albatros was developed in Czechoslovakia in the 1960s to replace older L-29 jet trainers. Powered by an Ivchenko AI-25TL turbofan engine, the L-39 has a top speed of Mach 0.80, a service ceiling of 11,000 m (36,100 feet), and can pull up to 8 G. Although primarily used as a trainer and light attack aircraft, the L-39 has also become popular with several aerial acrobatics demonstration teams.

 

Being a trainer aircraft, the L-39C has a tandem cockpit with the student in front and the instructor in the back. The instructor has several controls to mimic system failures to test the student. The L-39C also has two underwing pylons for bombs, rockets and close range air-to-air missiles. For decades, the L-39 was used by nations around the world to train pilots that later went on to fly aircraft like the MiG-29 and Su-27.

 

A later evolution of the L-39 was the L-39ZA light attack aircraft. The ZA adds two additional weapon pylons and a center pylon to mount a gun pod. The ZA has proved a popular choice for low-intensity conflicts. The L-39ZA will be available later during the Open Beta.

About DCS: L-39 Albatros:

 

The Albatros is a two seat jet aircraft intended for basic and advanced pilot training in visual and instrument flight rules weather conditions, day and night and also for combat use against air and ground targets.

 

Its development started in the mid-1960s by the Czech “Aero Vodochody”. In the 1970s the aircraft entered service and is still in operational use by over 30 countries worldwide.

The DCS: L-39 is the most accurate computer simulation of this aircraft among all flight simulators available for PC.

 

The aircraft systems, engine and weapons have been simulated in full. The professional flight model has been developed with input from L-39 pilots. All real procedures are possible in two interactive cockpits. A highly detailed and accurate model of the aircraft will make you feel the unforgettable sense of flying the famous “flying school desk”, which trained thousands of pilots.
