RAAF Mirage F-1 was to have been armed with AIM-7F/M and AIM-9L.

One I just found online:




That is cool GTX.
One thing's for certain, the F1 does have Soviet quality raugh-field landing gear.

The Mirage F1 was the smaller sibling to the Mirage F2:



The Mirage F2was itself developed into the Mirage G family of VG fighters:



What if the flow also went to the Mirage F1 with a VG variant?

Mirage/Kfir. I suppose that would've been just the thing for the South Africans.  :smiley: Atlas Cheetah, but taking the F.1 as a starting point instead of the III.

IMO these small changes will not have any significance: every AIM-9 have basically the same image and AIM-7 is so dull ...

... But, if one day I feel as to do it, you will get it  :smiley: :smiley: :-* :icon_beer:

In this case, whiffery affects only to weapons: RW Mirage F1 never carried those missiles.

Before Eurofighter project, the Spanish government was not happy with the "captive client" policy practiced by Marcel Dassault; they was also not happy with the prior authorization by the US government to be able to use weapons of US origin. So... what if they brazenly decided to reverse engineer the Mirage F1, F-18 and the J79 engine to produce an indigenous fighter?

Here you see the Casa-AFX.  :smiley:
