L-29 Delfin - Civilian

The Aero L-29 Delfín (NATO reporting name: Maya) is a military jet trainer developed and manufactured by Czechoslovakian aviation manufacturer Aero Vodochody. In excess of 2,000 L-29 Delfins were ultimately supplied to the Soviet Air Force. The Delfin served in basic, intermediate and weapons training roles. For this latter mission, they were equipped with hardpoints to carry gunpods, bombs or rockets; the L-29 functioned as a relatively good ground-attack aircraft when deployed as such.
