I believe that the PZL-107 and PZL-108 were both planned successors to the PZL-106 Kruk ag aircraft.

I think there is an image of PZL-107 on the following pdf (which I couldn't get to open) :mad:
http://www.smil.org.pl/ptl/wyklady/kruk.pdf

PZL-107 Kaczor I (Drake I), Witold Blazewicza engineer, 1986.
PZL-107 Kaczor II (Drake II), Stanislaw Danilecki engineer, 1990.
PZL-108 Fregata (Frigate bird), Adam Markowski engineer, [date?].

I have made it to open the pdf-file (there is a problem with it indeed; you have to download the file to your hard-disk and then open it with Adobe Reader).

Here are the pictures

PZL-107 Kaczor I (1986):


PZL-107 Kaczor II (1990):


PZL-108 Fregata 1 (1982):


And something unbelievable - the PZL-106B Kruk armed with four rocket pods (probably 16-tube 57mm):


As for Fregata, you should note that the type's name 'Fregata' was used firstly in the middle of 1960s in designation of Tadeusz Sołtyk's design TS-15 Fregata, which had been a two-jet engine, swept wings, butterly tail-planes executive jet).

Best regards,
Piotr

Thanks, Piotr. As a native-speaker, do you know more such interesting URL stuffed with PZL and other designs from Poland like at http://www.smil.org.pl/ptl/wyklady/kruk.pdf (thanks to Stephen for his discovery)?

Is there any text saying those 4 objects under the wings are rocket pods? I mean, you could always turn an agricultural plane into a COIN aircraft (see Vigilante version of the Ayres Turbo thrush for spraying Colombian poppy fields), but there is also the possibility that those are rotary atomizers for spraying chemicals, which would look similar in a front view.

wow, the Fregata looks similar to a cross of two lesser-known Rutan designs, the Grizzly and the Predator agplane.

Nice finds! :)

No, the caption just reads "Projekt uzbrojonego ('armed project') PZL-106B".

[Thanks for the readable version of this pdf Thomas! :)]

There was definitely a Rutan influence. Design leader Andrzej Frydrychewicz, talking about the PZL-107, is quoted, saying "We worked in same time on other project including Kaczor II, modeled on the ideas of B. Rutan."

Boxkite asked about other urls on http://www.smil.org.pl/ Apologies for the hijack but others may also be interested.

See: http://www.smil.org.pl/ptl/?id=wyklady for SMIL's Problemy Rozwoju Samolotów (Aircraft Development Problems) series.

Other subjects are listed but the live links are:

http://www.smil.org.pl/ptl/?id=pdf&o=pulawski -- Samoloty Pulawskiego [the designer Zygmunt Pulawski, not the Swidnik factory]

http://www.smil.org.pl/ptl/?id=pdf&o=bies -- TS-8 Bies

http://www.smil.org.pl/ptl/?id=pdf&o=md12 -- PZL MD-12 [li-2 replacement]

http://www.smil.org.pl/ptl/?id=pdf&o=gil -- BZ-1 Gil [no pdf]

http://www.smil.org.pl/ptl/?id=pdf&o=iskierka -- [M-26] Iskierka

http://www.smil.org.pl/ptl/?id=pdf&o=bocian_puchacz -- [SZD-9] Bocian and [SZD 50-3] Puchacz

So, no unbuilt projects but a few PZL prototype rarities.

M-10 was 18 passenger multi-purpose transport aircraft of metal structure,project of 1959.


M-11 was multi-purpose light aircraft powered by one piston engine,project of 1961.


M-13 was medium transport aircraft of metal structure,accommodated 24-32 passenger,powered

This is a currently working link for the PDF mentioned several times in this thread for PROBLEMY ROZWOJU SAMOLOTU PZL-106 KRUK (PROBLEMS OF DEVELOPMENT OF AIRCRAFT PZL-106 KRUK)

http://www.smil.org.pl/ptl/wyklady/04_PZL-106_Kruk.pdf

It includes the development history of the Kruk and derivatives like the PZL-107 and PZL-240 and many others.
