The Yakovlev Yak-141, occasionally abbreviated as the Yak, is a Soviet fighter aircraft used for testing VTOL capabilities.
At some point prior to October 2003, the bounty hunter Oleg Omansky, aka the Hungarian obtained a Yakovlev Yak-141 for his own use.
The Hungarian used his Yak-141 to reach the abandoned Soviet facility Krask-8 in Siberia, so that he might obtain one of the heads of fifteen targets in a bounty hunt. Upon arrival, the Hungarian immediately noticed two Marines on top of the missile silo firing at his Yak. Recognising one as Shane Schofield from the list, the Hungarian moved his aircraft closer, unaware that Schofield wanted to get on his Yak so that they could escape the silo, which some Executive Solutions troops had set to blow.
Schofield and Book II adhered themselves to the Yak with their Maghooks, while the Hungarian proceeded to land on another building as the silo collapsed. Once the Hungarian disembarked his plane, he found himself held at gunpoint by Schofield and Book II, who demanded to know who he was, where the bounty was to be collected and who was running the bounty hunt. After the Hungarian told them what he knew, they warned the him to leave Krask-8 before a torpedo blew it up, and took before the two Marines stole his Yak.
By pushing the Yak to fly as quickly as possible to the Karpalov Coalmine on the Afghanistan-Tajikistan border, Schofield and Book II soon arrived at the Allied forces base camp overseeing an operation in the mine. What happened to the Hungarian's Yak-141 after Schofield and Book II disembarked it is unknown.
- Only four Yak-141s were built, and two are currently maintained for display purposes.
