Dassault Aviation, creator of flying legends like the Mirage III and V, suffers from the lacking interest in the Rafale. In a meeting, the CEO and top managers from Dassault decided to enable a program to make Dassault more profitable. Spare part sales run well, but rely only on the current operators of the actual planes. The attempt to offer the Rafale at a far lower price would bring Dassault deep into the red numbers from where a recovery was practically not makeable and would lead to the ruin of Dassault.
Instead of that, it was thought of offering the Mirage 2000C and F to a lower price. But the idea was given up because of the numbers of different types of planes potential new clients can switch to, which are much newer, e.g. the Typhoon.
Next thought was of the 2000B, allowing countries with lower military budget to have their own fighters with decent bombing and interception capabilities. The 2000B could also be used to replace older planes or planes with reduced combat capabilities.
A huge marketing campaign was launched and Dassault was able to add more than a dozen new countries to their Mirage 2000 client list.
The plane's most noticeable change was the addition of one or two guns (depending on operators wish) which got positioned at the same position as in the single-seated Mirage 2000, reducing this way the effective range of the plane.
No details got published by Dassault, but experts speak of more than 400 units sold all over the world, with options for more planes. Some of the countries the Mirage 2000Bx was offered to haven't decided yet, but it's more than probable that they will buy it.
The first tranche of planes will be delivered to their new owners by the end of 2013.
