Model Description

Hobbymaster 1/72nd scale HA1614b Mirage 2000-5 Waddington RAF Station, United Kingdom, 2002. Buy online at Flying Tigers.

The Mirage 2000 has been in service since 1984 with production ending in 2007 when the final aircraft was delivered to the Hellenic Air Force. The Mirage 2000-5F was supposed to be an export variant but the company didn’t receive enough demand from the French Air Force to make it viable so existing aircraft were upgraded. In 1993 it was decided to upgrade present aircraft and in 1997 work began with the first 2000-5F being delivered in 2000. In 2011 2000-5F’s were engaged in action in Libya.

The Mirage 2000-5F is a dedicated air-to-air fighter and only flown by the French Air Force. Thirty seven Mirage 2000’s were upgraded to 2000-5 specifications as a stopgap measure while waiting for the Rafale. These upgraded aircraft were designated 2000-5F with the first aircraft arriving in Dijon in 1999. In 2011 the aircraft relocated to Luxeuil where twenty four 2000-5F’s are still in service. Mirage 2000-5F 2-EB belongs to SPA 3 Cigogne de Guynemer that is assigned tail-code 2. Georges Guynemer was WWI French Air Force Ace with fifty four victories and considered a national hero.
