Dassault Super Mystére B3

Recommended Posts

With the realisation that the future lay with his outstanding Mirage family of aircraft Marcel Dassault quickly lost interest in his earlier creations but was persuaded to offer a new 'attack' version of the Super Mystére for export. The Super Mystére B3 was powered by a Rolls-Royce Avon 200 series turbojet rated at 10,000lbs dry thrust and this engine replaced the thirsty afterburning Atar 101G-2 of the B2 but offered equal thrust and lower fuel consumption. Avionics were still primitive but the B3 introduced additional underwing pylons for bombs, rockets or missiles and the aircraft was a good platform for ground-attack. Dhimar became the first export customer for the B3 ordering 30 aircraft which were delivered in 1961 and the B3 was soon overshadowed by it's more glamorous delta-winged stablemate.
