Bangladesh Airpower


Fixed-Wing | Rotary-Wing Aircraft

The modern Bangladesh Air Force is a mix of modern and Cold War-era types covering fixed-wing and rotary-wing functionality. The primary fighter mount is the aging F-7 of Chinese origination while just eight MiG-29B multirole fighters make up a more modern solution. A modest fleet of Russian Yak-130 aircraft are operated in the light attack role. The Soviet-Russian Mil Mi-17 is featured in a dual-troop ferrying / gunship role. The C-130J provides a modern tactical-level transport capability. Advanced training is offered by the Chinese K-8 design - a most modern addition to the inventory. The Army relies on the Mi-171 for medium-lift duties and the Navy features the Italian AW109 for medium support as well as a fleet of four Do 228 for Maritime Patrol (MP) sorties fulfillment.
