    VS_dreams : Maybe cycle back to the old status (brake if rolling, get gear back down if just airborne, retracts the gear if preparing to land etc...)?

          Don't be mistake between Taiwanese Mirage-2000-5 and French Mirage-2000Ds. The latter had never intergarated and equipped gunpod so this time they have to upgrade and add that capability for it. The Mirage-2000 can carry 3 twin-launchers, 1 under central and 2 others under wings.

                The main lines of Mirage-2000D modernization:

                The first part of the modernization of the "2000D" will concern the navigation and attack system (SNA) which will be completely revised, reworked and modernized by Dassault Aviation. In fact, some time ago, the Mirage 2000D's navigation system was based on cardboard backgrounds, scanned, and projected to the Weapon System Navigator Officer (NOSA) via an enlarger. The new system will be digital. The Mirage 2000D does not have a gun, the upgrade will fill this gap with the integration of a nacelle developed by Dassault Aviation and which will be mounted as needed on the front left of the Mirage 2000D, in symmetrical laser designation nacelles. In fact the system will use 30mm DEFA guns from Mirage F1.

                Finally, the modernization will also take into account the possibility for the Mirage 2000D to be equipped and take off with an asymmetrical payload. Today, these devices can only carry the same type of bombs on the open pockets for air-to-ground fire, which had the effect, for example, of having aircraft taking off with only two GBU-49s under the belly. As a result of this renovation, the 2000D will be able to take off and hit with at least two different types of bombs, such as a GBU-12 coupled to a GBU-49. In addition, the modernized Mirage 2000D will be compatible to carry the new nacelle laser designation "Talios" of Thales and the nacelle ASTAC (Tactical Signal Analyzer). To complete the air-to-air missiles Magic II will be replaced by MICA IR (InfraRed).

                  Certainly seems like some welcome improvements! Great info! Any idea on whether the rear fuselage pylons or the inboard wing pylons will be integrated with offensive stores? Seems like once the AS.30L left the inventory, they don't use the inboard wing pylons for anything but external fuel tanks whereas the rear pylons seem rarely used if ever...

                      Gorgeous Mirage 2000 enters the private aggressor arena

                      airframe are said to be non-flyable and sold 450000$ the lot, suggesting that other airframe would have to be purchased to fly as aggressor. Notice how the buyer, Procor, is an UAE company based in France.

                        Also from the UAE:

                        A United Arab Emirates Air Force Mirage 2000, a UAE F-16 Desert Falcon and a U.S. F-35A Lightning II fly a partnering flight in the U.S. Central Command area of responsibility, May 29, 2019. The flight was conducted to continue building military-to-military relationships and interoperability with the UAE. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Chris Drzazgowski)

                          2000 is builtlike a tank.If they are in proper state, just stamp and they will go up to much more than 8000h.
                          Edit Mica NG will be integrated on M2K (not with full capacities i guess)

                            Halloweene, do you have more details on the MICA NG ? Like what range is it supposed to have? The one drawback of the MICA is its a medium range and not a long range missile.

                              i do and will write an article. Do not be disappointed with range, it is quite a clueless notion. However, the longest shot (in perfect condition) done with a MICA in Taiwan was 72 Kms. That said, expect a tripled NEZ for Mica NG due to smart dual boost. please wait a few days for more details. Briefly new captors, more propellant and cheaper both to buy and use.
                              And do not worry, in A2A RDY2 is quite a potent radar

                                https://sputniknews.com/military/201...ile-launchers/ Guess the mirage is ready to be equipped with some of these.
                                I thought the fall of western civilization was a tragedy, now I realize it's a comedy.
