G-2 Galeb / J-21 Jastreb

The Galeb was first flown in 1961 and is the standard Yugoslav air force basic trainer. It is equipped with two machine guns. Jastreb is a single-seat attack version equipped with three machine guns and eight underwing hardpoints for ordnance.

Galeb and Jastreb (Sea Gull and Hawk) aircraft series made the first generation of domestic jets designed and manufactured in accordance with world trends of the time. Three Galeb prototypes Galeb-1, Galeb-2 and Galeb-3 with the official designation N-60 were made for Former Yugoslavia. Jastreb aircrafts (Hawks) were made with more powerful engines-121 J-21 attacker planes (including two prototypes), 38 reconnaisance planes IJ-21 and 18 NJ-21 two-seaters.

The adopted structural concept of the two-seater G-2 enabled a quick development of the single-seat attack aircraft J-21 JASTREB that flew for the first time in 1963. A reconnaissance (IJ-21) and a two-seat training (NJ-21) version of this aircraft were later developed.

As very successful projects, GALEB and JASTREB aircraft drew attention and received important recognition at international air shows in Great Britain and France as impressive technical achievements in their categories. Consequently, many foreign countries introduced these aircraft into their military use.

Jastreb aircraft were withdrawn from armamanets production in 1996, when the Air Force underwent the reduction process down to the limit outlined in the Subregional Weapons Control Agreement. Light machine guns, hard points and installation points for armaments and sights were removed from 20 Galeb aircraft. They continued to be use as unarmed training planes with N-60 designation. Only one aircraft survived the NATO campaign in 1999, which is in the possession of the Technical Testing Center at Batajnica air base.
