J-22 Orao/IAR-93

 

Updates to the jointly developed J-22 Orao/IAR-93 attack aircraft have been proposed independently by Soko in Bosnia-Hercegovina and Avioane in Romania. Damage and dismantling of the Mostar factory in Bosnia-Hercegovina during the war, and the collapse of the Communist regime in Romania, have both jeopardised these programmes, however.

The current J-22 Orao/IAR-93B was flown in Yugoslavia in October 1983 and in Romania in 1985. It differs from the NJ-22 Orao/ IAR-93A in using reheated R-R Viper 633 turbojets to improve performance.

Customers - IAR-93A - Romania 36. IAR-93B - Romania 165. IJ/INJ-22 - former Yugoslavia 15. NJ-22 - former Yugoslavia 35. J-22 - former Yugoslavia 74 (+91).

IAR-99 Soim

Romania's Soim (Hawk) is an advanced jet trainer and light-attack aircraft. Powered by a Turbomecanica-built R-R Viper 632-41M turbojet, can be fitted with a ventral twin-barrel 23mm gun pod and has four under-wing hardpoints for loads up to 1,250kg. Two prototypes of an upgraded variant, the IAR-109, have been built using basic IAR-99 airframes.

The number of IAR-99s to have been delivered to the Romanian air force remains unclear. Deliveries began in 1987 with an initial batch of 20 aircraft ordered. A follow-on order for 30 was reported, but whether this was completed is not known.
