I know that there are some confusions about who built and who designed what. For instance, Ik1 and IK2 were designed and built in Ikarus but Ik3 was built in Rogožarski plant. Out of five Yugoslav aircraft plants, four were in close proximity to each other, built in and around Belgrade: Ikarus, Rogožarski, Zmaj and Utva. The fifth one was DFA (Državna Fabrika Aviona - State Aircraft Factory) which was located in Kraljevo. The production series were small compared to larger countries and factories shared orders (for instance Ikarus and Zmaj shared the order for the production of Hurricane MK1).


Here's the list of Rogožarski's projects (Fizir models were designed by Croatian designer Rudi Fizir)
Fizir-Maybach - school (32 units, built from 1927 until 1929.)
Fizir Loren - school (one prototype,1928.)

Fizir-Wright - school (one prototype 1930)
Fizir f1g-Kastor - school (one prototype 1931)
Fizir f1g-Titan - school (one prototype 1931)

Rogožarski SIM-VI - sports and tourism (2 prototypes, 1936 and 1937)
Rogožarski PVT-H - interim school seaplane (1 converted PVT craft and 3 units built, 1937)

Rogožarski SEA-JEEP - modification of SIM X with Gypsy Major engine (1 converted SIM-X, 1940)
Rogožarski SEA-JEEP - modified SIM-X plane for a school night flying (1 converted SIM-X 1941)
Rogožarski IK-3 - single-seater fighter (1 prototype 1937)
Rogožarski IK-3 - single-seater fighter (12 copies - serial production in 1940)
Rogožarski R-100 - single-engine aircraft, single seat for pilot training (26 copies, 1938 and 1939)
Rogožarski SIM XI - acrobatic plane, single seater designed for the training of fighter pilots (1 prototype 1938)

Thanks for these very informative listings! Such topics belong in the Designation Systems sub-forum, so I chose to move them.

I wanted to list all the projects in the first post because of the naming confusion and then work my way down the list, but if you think this is the right sub forum, I'm okay with that.
The Fizir F1V (Физир Ф1В - fizir prvi vojni - first military fizir) was a the basis from which engineer Rudolf Fizir developed a series of single-engined, two-seat, reconnaissance biplanes fitted with different engines. Construction was carried out in the Yugoslav aircraft factories "Zmaj" and "Rogožarski" between 1928 and 1932.


Zmaj built 15 of the Fizir F1V-Wright version and 5 Jupiter-engined Fizir F1M floatplanes for Naval Aviation in 1930. Zmaj was also responsible for conversion of several Fizir-Maybach trainers to Lorraine-Dietrich engines in 1932, which extended the service life of these machines under the new name Fizir-Lorraine 400 hp.

Fizir F1 - Prototype with Maybach MbIVa 260 hp engine, built in 1925
Fizir F1V-Maybach - Maybach MbIVa 260 hp engine (32 units built in ​​1928),
Fizir F1V-Loren - Lorraine-Dietrich 12Eb 450 hp engine,one prototype, conversion of Fizir F1V-Maybach in 1928 + 15 conversions of F1V-Maybach using Lorraine-Dietrich 12dB 400KS engine in 1933
Fizir F1V-Hispano - Hispano-Suiza 12Ga, 450 hp engine, one prototype, conversion of F1V-Maybach in 1928)
Fizir F1V-Wright - Wright Whirlwind J-5 220, 220 hp engine, (1 prototype + 15 copies in 1930)
Fizir F1M-Jupiter - Navy seaplane (also known as "Big Fizir") with Jupiter IAM 9AD 420,420 hp engine (5 planes built in 1930)
Fizir f1g-Castor - Walter Castor 240, 240 hp engine, (one prototype built in 1931)
Fizir f1g-Titan - Walter Titan 230, 230 HP engine, (one prototype built in 1931)

There is very little info on Fizir Fa-1 amphibian in Yugoslav aircraft history books although several were made and used along the Adriatic coast. The only photo I could find is from wikipedia article about Rudolf Fizir. It was a two seat configuration.

It sesms that some of the SIM-VIII were sometimes called SIM-VII, there were differences between them, but noone really knows which were which. Probably it started during the concept works where some early draft was named SIM-VII and altough the finished machine was called SIM-VIII, the older name also stuck.
