The Standard Class companion of the Open Class ヨ 42 Jantar, the SZD 41 used a modified ヨ42 fuselage fitted with an unflapped 15 m. wing. In 1978 an improved SZD 48-2 Standard 2 was introduced, with a shorter aft fuselage and tail surfaces of reduved area. The wing was raised from the mid-wing to shoulder wing position and swept slightly forward to compensate for reduced fuselage length. Water ballast was increased. The 48-3 Standard 3 superseded the ヨ2 first fluning in 1983. All Jantar Standards have T- tails. Specifications are for the 48-3Standard3.
