Why would you revert the edits I made on Aug. 20? I've studied the aircraft and interviewed the pilots who flew it for ten years.

That warehouse fire... was it the one that caused the Ústí massacre? --- Sandius 13:58, 24 May 2006 (UTC)

Jumo 211 being heavier than DB-605 is not correct[edit]

This is common mistake which is also on the CZ military museum web pages, etc. See specification of Daimler-Benz_DB_605 and Junkers_Jumo_211. Propeller was heavier and not appropriate for a fighter but needed for the engine with such performance intended for bomber use. Handling problems are confirmed by pilots.

Main photo[edit]

Since the aircraft was produced is Czechoslovakia, it might be better to use the photo of the Avia S-199 with Czechoslovakia markings over the Avia S-199 with IDF markings.Articseahorse (talk) 00:14, 28 November 2011 (UTC)

A Bf109 derivative?[edit]

Which version? The specs in the article make it sound like a 109E or possibly a 109F. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk)

The article states that the S-99 was a Bf 109G-6 built after the war by Avia, and that the S-199 was the S-99 with a different engine. Was that what you were asking? - BilCat (talk) 00:59, 25 July 2015 (UTC)

Pretty good, I'm not sure how much more could be added, though the article could expand on the usage of the S-199 and S-99 in the Czech air force. M Van Houten 18:19, 14 February 2007 (UTC)
