Yeah, but the Galebs trade outright speed for nose authority. Just about any airframe can be modified to carry a Python IV which can negate any supposed advantage.

There's a story floating around about how a Super Galeb and some Mig21's bombed the NATO base at Tuzla.

Makes for interesting reading however unlikely it may be.
