Serbia’s air force has taken delivery of four Soko G4 Super Galeb advanced jet trainers from Montenegro, with a further two to be transferred soon.

Part of a 17-strong fleet left at Podgorica air base following the two states’ separation earlier this decade, the aircraft had been in dispute for nearly four years.

Under an agreement signed in April, Montenegro will exchange six G4s and some spare parts for the Mil Mi-8 transport helicopter for shares in the Novi Prvoborac company, airport equipment and “various documentation”.

The returned trainers will significantly boost Serbia’s operational fleet of G4s, which Flightglobal’s MiliCAS database lists at 14 aircraft. Montenegro had already donated it a simulator for the type.

Serbia hopes to conduct a modernisation programme for up to 15 Super Galebs. This should equip the aircraft with new avionics, communication and navigation equipment, and enable them to remain in use until around 2030.

The proposed G4MD programme would also add head-up displays, hands-on throttle and stick controls, guided weapons, targeting systems and countermeasures equipment.

PODGORICA – The Serbian Ministry of Defense and the Army of Serbia took back two of six G-4 Super-Galeb aircraft from Montenegro. The G-4 Super Galeb is a single engine, advanced jet trainer aircraft designed and built by Yugoslavia. It was first flown on 17 July 1978 with serial production beginning in 1982. It was designed to replace the G-2 Galeb and Lockheed T-33 in the Yugoslav Air Force.

Spokesman of the Serbian Ministry of Defence stated that the remaining four aircraft will be deliverd to the Serbian Ministry of Defense on November 5th 2010, if weather conditions remain satisfactory.

Latkovic said that the first two aircraft were taken by the Serbian Ministry of Defense and the pilots of the Army of Serbia. Prior to leaving for Batajnica, Serbia from Golubovci, Montenegro, a test flight was conducted along with a detailed technical review of both aircraft.

The six aircraft in question were part of arrangements made between Serbia and Montenegro regarding the sharing of resources and documentation between the two countries signed on the 14th of April in Belgrade.

This agreement relates to the exchange of six Super-Galeb – G4 aircraft and parts for the repair of helicopters MI-8 after Serbia and Montenegro split and became independent nations.
