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 two-seat Mirage 2000D is a derivative of proven Mirage 2000N designed to perform precision attack missions. It features Antilope-5 radar, Spirale integrated countermeasures system and Damocles targeting pod for guided-precision weapons delivery. The Mirage 2000D aircraft performed well during operation Allied Force over the former Yugoslavia. Mirage 2000Ds delivered guided weapons such as BGL bombs and AS30L missiles. Mirage 2000Ds replaced part of Jaguar aircraft within the French Air Force in the precision deep strike role.

The French Air Force launched a modernization program on the whole Mirage 2000D fleet to add cruise missile and AASMs to the weapon options available for the Mirage 2000D airplane. Modernization work began in later 2003 with three aircraft undergoing upgrade per month at Air Force Base 113 "commandant Antoine de Saint-Exupéry". As of March 2005, 40 of 80 Mirage 2000Ds owned by the French Air Force were already cruise missile and AASM capable models.
