PZL-230 Skorpion is the name of the cancelled military project of a Polish Air Force attack aircraft. The project was started in late 1980s by the PZL (Polish State Aviation Works) and cancelled in 1994 due to lack of funds. Skorpion would have had twin jet engines, a fuselage afterbody blending into the wing, and small canards behind the cockpit. Sad that only this model was made before program cancelation.

Awesome plane.Absolutely great.It looks so futuristic for 1980-ies.Too bad that it was not produced, although i think it still have a chance on the market like trainer or ground support.

This plane looks really futuristic! Is it real or just a project? Did it ever fly?
