I wonder how Chavez is going to afford such aircraft when oil prices have dropped like it has over the past couple of months...

Venezuela, has been selling petroleum which are not required to comply withthe OPEC quotas, rather than just crude oil. The price of oil dropped, but not less than $ 30, Venezuela on the other side has already managed to improve food production in rubles important not to rely on imports.

We also have high reserves. Returned to the theme of the L-15 aircraft insurance replace the F-5.

you mean L-15? no attack versions thus far. K-8 is only used for training in China, but I think it's used for attack missions in other air forces.
