SOKO J-1 Jastreb

The Galeb was complemented by a generally similar but higher performance single-seat light attack/tactical reconnaissance version designated J-1 Jastreb (hawk), which had a strengthened airframe and was powered by the improved Rolls-Royce Viper 531 turbojet. This was built as the J-1 attack and RJ-1 tactical reconnaissance aircraft for the Yugoslav air force, with corresponding J-1E and RJ-1 E versions for export. For operational conversion a two-seat TJ-1 was developed.

Production of all versions of the Jastreb ended during 1978, and of the G-2A Galeb in 1983. It is unlikely that any Jastrebs or Galebs remain in use in Yugoslavia, and the status of the Libyan and Zambian aircraft is uncertain.
