TS-11 R Novax is a naval aviation recconaissance version of the TS-11 Iskra bis DF combat trainer airplane. It was established in the early 1990s as the successor of the SBLim-2A and PZL Lim-6 aircraft in the Navy.
The TS-11 R is equipped with Bendix King RDS-81 weather radar and GPS receiver. It was to small space for the new radar. So the front section of the fuselage was enlarged by adding a slight bubble of the “tip” of the nose. In the second cockpit, a radar screen added above the instrument panel.
TS-11 R Novax aircraft served in the 7th Special Aviation Regiment and later in the 3rd Aircraft Squadron in Siemirowice in Pomerania until 2004 when they were replaced by the PZL An-28 / M-28 “Bryza” turboprop patrol aircraft.
