Ikarus S-49
(SFR Yugoslavia)
The S-49 was a monoplane fighter, developed in 1946.Though the S-49 had a strong resemblance with the Yakovlev Yak-9, in fact it was based on the yugoslav pre-war IK-3 fighter but was initially powered by the Soviet Klimov VK-105 engine.
The redesigned S-49C had an all-metal construction which replaced the earlier mixed construction, and was powered by a French Hispano-Suiza engine. It remained in service until 1961.
Totally 158 built.
