Description: The Mirage 2000 is a delta-wing, single engine, multi-role aircraft designed to provide air defense, deep strike, nuclear deterrence, reconnaissance and close air support for the French Armed Forces. It can accommodate a wide range of weapons and electronic equipment in accordance with the mission profile. It features two DEFA 554 30mm guns mounted internally.

The Mirage 2000 is the last member of the successful French Mirage fighter aircraft family. It was deployed in 1983 by the French Air Force and since then it has been purchased by many other countries all over the world such as Egypt, Greece, India, Peru, Qatar, Taiwan and the United Arab Emirates. Different variants of the Mirage 2000 aircraft were deployed successfully during the Gulf war and over the former Yugoslavia in the 1990s. More than 526 Mirage 2000s have been sold worldwide.

The single seat, single engine, combat-proven Mirage 2000C was designed to provide air defense and secondary ground attack capability. It features the RDI pulse-Doppler radar and integrated countermeasures. The fist two (a single-seat 2000C and a twin-seat 2000B aircraft) out of 12 Mirage 2000Cs purchased by Brazil from the French Air Force were delivered on September 4th, 2006. Two additional aircraft were scheduled for delivery in October 2006, four more in 2007 and the remaining four Mirage 2000s in 2008. The Indian Air Force Mirage 2000I is an upgraded variant introduced in March 2015.
