Mirage F1AZ Export
This mod is dedicated to BPAO, nothing would have been possible without him.
Single-seat strike and multi-role fighter. It is a simplified attack version with extra fuel in place of radar and some other all-weather avionics.
The South African Air Force recognized the advantages of a simplified version of the Mirage F1CZ for day visual attack missions. The resulting Dassault-Breguet Mirage F1AZ
is visually distinguished by having a slender conical nose, resulting from removal of the large Cyrano IVM radar. In its place is the ESD Aïda II ranging radar and a
laser-ranger, with a large instrument boom housing the pitot/static heads attached on the underside of the nose. The main avionics racking is moved from behind the cockpit
to the nose, making room for an extra fuselage tank. Other additions are a Doppler radar and a retractable refueling probe. South Africa received 32 aircraft for service with
No. 1 Sqn.
The SAAF aircrafts were withdrawn from service in 1997.
In 2006, Gabon received 6 former SAAF Mirage F1AZ and in 2010 Congo-Brazzaville received 4 others.
This addon is and will in all cases remain freeware.
