Those projects failed to materialize because we didn had an engine for it. We where dealing with UK for RR Spey and with Chaine for the Mig 21 engines  that China reverse engineerer , but no avail . All the designes where close to flyable prototype stage.

I believe the R-29-300 was also considered at one point as an engine? Seems a bit big, however.

Not Likely... The main thing was to produced the engine locally under a licence. During that period we whene not in good relation with USSR. It was the perioad of temporal approach with Western Powers and China.

Any idea if there were connections to the FC-1 project and / or the Russian model.41 ??
He was my North, my South, my East and West,
My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thought that love would last forever; I was wrong.
...
For nothing now can ever come to any good.

I don't believe so, other than the obvious F-16 influence on all designs.

hesham,
IAR-90 was indeed a bizjet project
IAR-91 was an attack aircraft project, dropped in favour of the IAR-93
IAR-92 AFAIK didn't exist, or maybe it was the designation for a variant of the IAR-91
IAR-95 and IAR-S are variants of the same project (supersonic fighter)
IAR-101 should have been a turboprop trainer

Forget about that site, it's completely useless.
