I totally concede.
The fighter jet, made from a country with a dubious technological ability can only be number one in the world because it has been made with the sweat and blood of racially superior Serbians.

I fail to see how FORMER SOCIALIST YUGOSLAVIA, WHICH WAS RAN BY TITO AND WAS COMPOSED OF VARIOUS DIFFERENT BALKAN CULTURES AND PEOPLE had "dubious" technology.

The G-4 Super Galeb was respected by the GREAT AMERICAN HEROES OF THE USAF who flew it in the Joint Primary Aircraft Training System in the 90's. Obviously, as im sure you would agree [Unless you are extremely determined to disagree with me], it isnt the easiest thing to make US test pilots impressed.

that depends if it was a political gesture the joint Primary Aircraft Training...
cos if it was there would be no way in hell that the pilots would say these things schitt if you no what i mean...

Now im confused. Of course it lost to the American design, Yugoslavia didnt spend Schitt loads of money on the defense budget.

who was the design supposed to be sold to?
im a little confused myself did the American design beat the Yugoslav design in an American defence deal?

Im not sure, but I dont think the the G-4 Super Galeb was designed to be a big hit in the world market, but more of a Yugoslav aircraft.

I do know that about 10 G-4's are in service with Burma, but I think they are the only country that has them in service apart from Serbia.
