Following the same logic a Pilatus P-3 would also fit in. Saying that it is familiar with the Safir makes me think it is of a similar era and also similar configuration... low wing, retractible, tractor, since it is not a single seater then a tandem or four place makes sense. I also still think that a L-17 Navion fills the clues offered so far.

I see the light ! :-D

Pilatus PC-7 !!!!!!!!

The connection with the Safir is that both types has served/is serving with the Austrian air force together with a number of oyher SAAB aircraft.
They are both two seat military trainers with a prop up front.
The PC-7 has been sold to a number of airforces round the world so I guess one can say it is pretty popular around the world.

Am I right this time ?

Best regards,
Håkan

Sorry, Hakan
not this time, try again :twisted:
Btw, you're giving us good ideas for the future projects 8)

So I was wrong again :(

Here are a couple of more wild guesses: :D

Piper Arrow II or IV ?

I don't belive any of them have been made as a commercial FS product even if DF has mentioned that there might be an Arrow III.

I wouldn't call any of them warbirds but since they are serving with a number of air forces they might fit the bill.

To my knowledge is this only released as freeware.
And Andrey, beleve it or not but this one is stationed at Viared together with Stefan F:s Safir SE-KGZ :!:

Voyager,

The fact that the two aircraft is based at Viared just can't be a coincidence !

Why didn't I think of that? :roll:

How about another military trainer - the Harvard. I know Aeroworx was working on one, but it looks all but abandoned and I'd love to have a Harvard with the same detail and great framerates as the Safir!

Here we go again:

Siai-Marchetti 208 ? or maybe 205 ?

They seem to be scattered around the world and has also been employed by a number of air forces.

This seems to fit your criteria...is (and has been) in use around the world by both civilians and the military (including the RoNAF!).

Congrats ColoKent :D

Very borderline "warbird" though in my book.... ;-)

Used as a FAC and Observation aircraft in the Vietnam war, and they carried stores underwing.

Yep, they got shot at, and shot back!

That's a `warbird`! :D
