It was later designated as the Aero L-59 .

    You do know that, but most readers here may confuse that with the L-39s from Warsaw Pact times.
    only correction L-39MS is not Super Albatros, but Albatros and only for Czechoslovak Air Force, versions for export were signed as L-59. Super Albatros is L-139 but sometimes you can see L-59 Super Albatros and L-139 Albatros 2000. The first L-39MS´ flight on 1. October 1989. ZVL DV-2 was made in Slovakia - Povážské strojárně company (but designed by Lotarev)
