Aircraft Overview:

The second combat jet to be produced in the acclaimed Mirage series, the Mirage V combined a simple design, ground attack capabilities, and long endurance into a cost-effective package. Originally intended to serve only with Israel, the Mirage V has been a massive export success in the Middle East, Africa, South America, and Europe, as well as France's Armee de L'air itself. The French air force operated no fewer than 50 Mirage VF models, all originally intended for Israel. This cheaper derivative of the Mirage IIIE all-weather strike fighter sacrificed avionics for range and load-carrying capacity, and was extremely practical for theatres with clear weather.
