About the French Air Force Mirage Aircraft
The Dassault Mirage F-1 is a French air-superiority fighter and attack aircraft manufactured and developed by Dassault Aviation to be the successor of the Mirage III class. The Mirage F1 introduced into service in the French Air Force back in the early seventies. Powered using a single SNECMA Atar turbojet delivering about 7 tonnes-force of thrust, the F1 was utilized was a light multipurpose fighter and has been exported to significant nations. More than 700 F1s have been manufactured.
Dassault designed the Mirage F1 as a private venture, using its own funds, as a successor to its Mirage III and Mirage 5 fighters, with the F1 being a smaller version of the Mirage F2 being developed for the French Air Force. It was of similar size to the delta-winged Mirage III and V, and was powered by a SNECMA Atar 9K turbojet as used in the Dassault Mirage IV, but unlike its predecessors, it shared the layout of a swept wing mounted high on the fuselage and a conventional tail surface as used by the F2.
