Damn! That's a wicked looking aircraft. Going with the old truism, if this looks wicked, it would fly wicked too... And for a considerable amount less than a late-model F-16 or a Super Rhino... But, I'm not the Chancellor of the Exchequer... Even at home ;)

What a nice looking little aircraft that was, even looked fairly stealthy. Too bad it was never developed.

Aahh, one of those what ifs that has intrigued me for years. A friend in Warsaw sent me some drawings and I've been watching for more ever since. A few drawings that were passed on to me are below....

Enjoy the Day! Mark

In Jane's Soviet Intelligence, a May 1991 article on the PZL Orlik also mentions the PZL 230, but in this case an earlier design powered by two PT6 turboprops rather than turbofans.
Attached is the relevant page with the specifications and the photo of the model.
