HAL HF-24 Marut Mk.1 -  s/n D-1256  -  Deutsches Museum, Flugwerft Oberschleissheim  -  10 October 2002
The Marut was designed to an Indian Air Force requirement by Prof. Kurt Tank. Development started in 1956
with first flight achieved in 1961. As suitable engines could not be obtained, performance was lacking.
A total of 125 Maruts were built by Hindustan Aeronautics between 1964 and 1977, and served until 1986.
