  Dassault Mirage III - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Mirage III family grew out of French government studies begun in 1952 that led in early 1953 to a specification for a lightweight, all-weather interceptor capable of climbing to 18,000 m (59,040 ft) in six minutes and able to reach Mach 1.3 in level flight.
The prototype Mirage III flew on 17 November 1956, and attained a speed of Mach 1.52 on its seventh flight.

 The Dassault Mirage III/5/50 Series
The Mirage IIIC was armed with twin 30 millimeter DEFA revolver-type cannon, fitted in the belly with the gun ports under the air intakes.
A similar inconsistent variation in Mirage fighter versions was the presence or absence of an HF antenna that was fitted as a forward extension to the tailfin.
On some Mirages, the leading edge of the tailfin was a straight line, while on those with the HF antenna the leading edge had a sloping extension forward.

 The Dassault Mirage F1
Dassault was hedging bets of their own as well, designing a somewhat scaled down interceptor version of the F2, the "Mirage F3", and a lightweight multirole version, the "Mirage F1".
The Mirage F1 was a good aircraft at an attractive price, but it was followed a bit too quickly by the Dassault Mirage 2000, which was clearly superior in most respects and so became preferred by customers.
All Iraqi Mirage F1s, including the two-seaters, had the tailfin fillet for an HF antenna, and were generally painted in sand-chocolate disruptive camouflage on top, with light gray on the bottom.

 CAEA : Mirage III NG
Dassault proposed an upgrade of Mirage III/5, the Mirage 50, powered by an Atar 9K50 wich already fitted Mirage F1 and being fitte with a radar Agave (Super Etendard), or Cyrano IVM (Mirage F1) depending on main mission assigned to the aircraft.
Early 80's Dassault also proposed an upgrade version of Mirage III, Mirage III NG (Nouvelle Génération), made in three years from the Mirage 50 prototype airframe.
Mirage III NG was preserved at Istres by Conservatoire du Patrimoine Aéronautique Istréen wich entrusted it to us in march 2004.

 Dassault Mirage III model airplane
Dassault Mirage III-001 flew for the first time on November 18, 1956, and after just over two months it had been flown at a speed of Mach 1.52.
About half the existing Mirage III operators have embarked on upgrade programs to extend the lives of their aircraft, some of which are now 20-30 years old.
The last version of this airplane, the Mirage 50, was powered by one 15,873-lb thrust SNECMA Atar 9K-50 turbojet, with a maximum speed at altitude of Mach 2.2; service ceiling at Mach 2 of 59,055 ft; and combat radius with two 882-lb bombs of 391 miles.

 The Dassault Mirage III/5/50 Series   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
The follow-on Dassault Mirage 2000 fighter, basically a completely new aircraft with only the same general configuration as the Mirage III, is discussed in a separate document, as is the scaled-up Mirage IV bomber.
Dassault's response to the specification was the "Mystere-Delta 550", a sporty-looking little jet that was to be powered by twin Armstrong Siddeley MD30R Viper afterburning turbojets, each with 9.61 kN (980 kg / 2,160 lb) thrust.
The Mirage IIIB trainer, mentioned earlier, had tandem seating, with a fuselage stretch of over a meter relative to the Mirage IIIA and the cannon deleted to accommodate the second seat.

 DASSAULT MIRAGE III
The Dassault Mirage III was powered by a SNECMA Atar turbojet engine with afterburner that developed more than 13,600 pounds of static thrust, plus an optional single-chamber rocket motor that provided an additional 3,300 pounds of thrust.
The Mirage was thus an extremely fast airplane, easily capable of exceeding the speed of sound at low altitude and able to climb to more than 36,000 feet in just three minutes.
The Mirage III has been built under license in both Switzerland and Australia and has been adopted as standard equipment by the armed forces of a number of countries, including Israel, Libya, Lebanon, Switzerland, Brazil, Spain, South Africa, Peru and Pakistan.

 Aerospaceweb.org | Aircraft Museum - Mirage III
The most successful model by far was the Mirage IIIE with a larger fuselage and optimized as a long range fighter bomber.
The Mirage III was such a successful concept that it has served as the basis for no less than six related designs--the Mirage IV nuclear bomber, the Mirage 5/50 attack fighters, the Mirage F.1 fighter, the Mirage 2000 fighter, Mirage 2000 bomber, the Israeli Kfir attack fighter, and the South African Cheetah attack fighter.

 Dassault Mirage III & Mirage 5/Nesher in Israeli Service
- Mirage IIICJ #11: Preserved at the Israeli AF Museum in Hatzerim AB, it was initially painted as #159 (#59), the higher scorer in the Mirage III fleet, but sold to Argentina in 1982.
The first digit of the Mirage IIICJs was changed to “1”, that of the Mirage IIIBJs to “2” and that of the Mirage IIIRJs to “4” (including those IIICJs converted temporarily to reco, while used in this role).
Later, the 253 Sqn incorporated similar markings on the rudder of its aircraft, and when the surviving examples were passed to 254 Sqn the rudder markings changed the upper white chevron for a red one.

 Atlas Cheetah   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
It is a major upgrade of the Dassault Mirage III.
Though the Mirage F1s were the most modern of the fleet, having been delivered from 1977 onwards, they were the primary element of South Africa's air defence and strike fleet and to withdraw them for an upgrade would have left an unacceptable gap in its air defence and strike capability.
In addition there were already a few successful Mirage III upgrades from which to learn, such as the Kfir and Mirage III NG, so the SAAF's Mirage III fleet was chosen as the basis for the upgrade.
