Who know the progress of PZL-230?
Who know the progress of another attacker/traner jet that is close to the PZL-230?

Im not too sure, but I think it was cancelled. Was a bit over ambitous from the outset. A country such as Poland is better off using their defence buget for importing aircraft from other countries.

Still a very attractive lookig aircraft.

But there must be another one which looks also using V tail fin. Not the PZL-230.

Theres the old 1950's Fouga Magister, 60's Potez-Heinkel CM.191 and the 1978 Fouga 90 but nothing else springs to mind.

There was the butterfly tailed Supermarine 505 naval fighter in the 1950's too but thats not what you after is it?

the PZL-230

or PZL-230F "SKORPION" was actually intended to meet the PAF requirement for a small agile battlefield attack aircraft(SABA)

from the info that i have a trainer version was not mentioned but could have been consider at the time

the development for the program began in around 87

a full scale mock up(external image give by Jensy) was built and unveiled in 92

the PZL-230F was to be a highly maneuverable but relatively slow aircraft, capable of evading advanced SAMs and carrying a 2,000-kg payload, a 25-mm GAU-12 or a podded 30-mm GAU-8

its first flight was to take place in 96 and production was to start in 2000, BUT
in 94 the program was terminated instead the PAF opted to develop a single seat attack version of the I-22

in 93 PZL unveiled a second advanced concept in the form of the PZL "KOBRA" powered two POLISH built D-18 thrust vector engines but that program was placed "on the shelf" also
