At the time of its first flight on 30 September 1986, it was designated the L-39MS. Aero no longer produces this aircraft.

Helwan HA-300

The Helwan HA-300 was a single-engine, delta-wing, light supersonic Interceptor aircraft developed in Egypt during the 1960s. It was designed by the famous German aircraft designer Willy Messerschmitt. At various stages, Spain and India were involved in the development program.

Then Egypt financed it, and the program transferred to Egypt where every part was built. At a late stage India financed the Egyptian development of the Egyptian E-300 engine to use it on the Indian fighter jet HF-24 Marut.
