In the same general category as the Aermacchi MB-339 and powered by a similar 4,000 lb st (1814 kgp) Viper 632 turbojet, the SOKO Super Galeb (Super Seagull) appears to have been heavily influenced by the British Aerospace Hawk in its design. Possessing no commonality with the G2A Galeb which it is apparently intended to succeed in Yugoslav Air Force service, the Super Galeb has apparently been under flight test since 1981, several prototypes/pre-series aircraft participating in the flight development programme by mid-1982, but the present production status is uncertain. Conforming with now standard practice, the Super Galeb possesses four wing ordnance stations for armament training and a secondary light strike role, and it may be assumed that, if previous Yugoslav practice is followed, a single-seat dedicated light tactical version will eventually emerge.
The prototype PZL Mini Dromader entered flight testing during 1982. Production deliveries are not expected to begin until 1986.
The PZL Mini Dromader differs from the M-18 Dromader primarily in respect of its shorter-span wing and less powerful engine.
The Ajeet Trainer, now in flight test, is to be produced in small numbers for both the Indian Air Force and the Indian Navy.
