Novi Avion

Recommended Posts


 

 

 

 

 

yugoslav project fourth generation plane called novi avion-new plane-.

It s projected so yugoslavia shouldnˇt depend of anyone at least if you are talking about millitary eqipment.

first flight should be 1992..

project was stoped during the war,when croats stoped send money.

plane has duble delta wing and canards, and it is similar to sweedish gripen.

 

 

sory if I said something wrong.

For me, the plane looks more as a one engine version of a French Rafale (France provided some assistance on the project). The year of the planed first flight (1992) sounds too optimistic IMHO.

Ah, yes, the Novi Avion, interesting little aircraft, I was thinking of suggesting it as a idea for the modders, but silverbolt beat me to it :)

I was done in cooperation with the french, I think. Probably the reason why it looks like the rafale.

Anyway if anyone plans on making this thing i suggest better using the name YUSupersonik instead of Novi Avion.

 

MaverickHR, interesting video, finnaly got a look at what it's cockpit was supposed to look like (been searching the internet for it).

Research stoped before war. When MiG-29A(9-12) was obtained in 1987. Pity - but hey - better stuff like Lavi never saw production.

I though the Mig-29 were a temporary solution until the NA was built?

Yes - temporary solution -

but when 16 MiG's arrived - performance was much better then Novi Avion - and project existed few years more only on paper

Yes it means exactly "New Plane".

Anyway considering the finantial state of Yu in those times, I doubt it would happen even if there was no war/separation of Yu...

But the model does look pretty :yes:
