SOKO - Novi Avion

Presenting a cutting edge project, who's story was cut short by the collapse of Yugoslavia


It is called "Novi Avion", which translates to "New Aircraft". It was meant to be a domestic replacement for the soviet built MiG-29.
Sadly, no prototypes were built, only scale replicas of the different models, this one is the second one of the three configurations.

It was meant to be a high performance interceptor and a very agile opponent.
It's proposed power plant was the french built Snecma M88-3, putting out up to 93kN, giving this plane a t/w of 1.03 on a standard configuration.

Due to its low weight and a high t/w ratio, It's approximate rate of climb would have been 280m/s clean.
it's top speed would have been slightly lower than that of the MiG-29, but only by about 200kph at altitude.


The Armament was primarily of French origin.
The proposed loadout was:

2x R.550 Magic SRAAM
2x R.530 Super AAM
4x Matra Durandal High Drag Bomb
(with the possibility of 2x MBDA MICA SRAAM)

Wing mounted drop tanks were also a possibility.


I could only speculate its flight performance, but some things were clear
-it is high AoA capable as it's configuration closely resembles the Rafale (30°)
-the maximum turn rate should be similar to other single engine fighters (25°/s)


Controls and Notes:

-Ag6 - jettison
-Regular flight controls

-Braking prohibits the fight controls from deflecting fully, as the plane has not dedicated air brake surface, but rather uses its canards and a differencial in elevons.


That should be it, I hope you enjoy!

    @ChrisPy Thanks! But I wouldn't say so. This was one of my "quick base + 690 parts" builds. But still, I would agree on the simplicity and the relative smoothness of the plane.

    @ChrisPy even if I made a dual front wheel design, the plane would start to turn a bit.
    For some reason, using dual front wheels makes the rear landing gear way softer and it just bends all over the place even if I made its mass a higher number. I have no idea why.

    @Krmo I think you need to mirror the front wheel.

    @ChrisPy i can't seem to be able to make a plane that doesn't do that. I keep having some strange problems with the gear and suspension.

    @EternalDarkness oh ok thanks. That's why I wonder why it is similar.

    @RandomUser09 it was developed in collaboration with Dassault, featuring many of their technologies.
