About This File
The two-seater Mirage for conversion training, first flew on October 21, 1959 and received the designation Dassault Mirage IIIB.
The fuselage is 60 cm longer than the single seat, and the two cabins are closed by a single cover. As the rear cabin occupies the space for avionics in single-seat, this equipment usually goes in the nose, instead of radar. Thus, training the Mirage III can not perform interception missions, although they have limited ground attack capability.
The first Mirage IIIB of the production line for the Air Force of France flew on 19 July 1962. While maintaining the Atar 9B engine 6000 kg of thrust, the plane weighs little and performs well. Among the countries that have acquired Mirage training, most of them with guns, was Israel (Mirage IIIBJ), Lebanon (IIIBL), South Africa (IIIBZ) and Switzerland (IIIBS).
