The Ikarus 452 was an experimental jet aircraft built in Yugoslavia in 1953. It was a stubby mid-wing cantilever monoplane of pod-and-boom configuration, with twin jets mounted one atop the other at the rear of the fuselage nacelle, with separate intakes for the lower engine (in the wing roots) and the upper engine (on the sides of the rear fuselage). The twin tails and horizontal stabiliser were carried at the ends of booms that extended rearwards from the wings, with a short fin extending from the top of the rear fuselage to also meet the stabiliser. The flying surfaces were sharply swept, and construction throughout was of an experimental alloy.

Flight testing was carried out from mid 1953, with experience from the programme providing a basis for the production of the Soko Galeb.

It was a single seat jet aircraft with swept wings with a span of 5,20m only and 5,95mlength. After the T-451 it was the second jet aircraft to be developed in Yugoslavia. The first of two prototypes had its maiden flight on 24th July 1953. The 452M was seen as apredesign to a ground attack, which was planned to be used as high speed recconnaissance aircraft, too. The small dimensions were the results of military and eccomical demands.
The full metal aircraft had a swept twin-boom tail attached to the center wing. The tailplane was further attached to the fuselage with a fin. The two Turboméca Palas engines with 1,6kN thrust each were installed one above the other in the rear fuselage. The intakes of the lower engine were positioned in the wing roots, those of the upper engine behind the cockpit.
