 Nice one - could be a Mirage IV as the carrier aircraft.

Thanks!

Now you know that the modern expert country about UAV (with lots of export sales in that field) is Israel. In fact, like the Kfir, all that came from Dassault designers then French boycott. Here is the Dassault SPirage J that should have completed the Mirage 5J (this prototype has been painted with a Judaic swastika by a Palestinian worker/refugee):

Thanks to Robomog's weird topic http://beyondthesprues.com/Forum/index.php?topic=7617.0
here is the SPirage/Mirage "of the 21st century" (when designed in 1977), piloted by a robot (not remote but not human either)...
Thanks Robomog and the sci-fi spirit!

Thanks! ;)

There was also a photo-reco version of the SPirage. Not very aerodynamic with its camera of the 1970s, sorry...

Hmmm ... how about a Double-Nez 2 with wider cockpit spacing and the jet intake between the noses?

Contrary to the Mirage, the SPirage had no landing gear, but a kind of vertical landing:

Thanks a lot.

And as I built the 1/72 plastic Wazault Mini-Miraj (see http://beyondthesprues.com/Forum/index.php?board=34.0 ) here is the UAV version of it, but this did not come from Dassault, just using Dassault parts.

For Stealth reasons, the jet-less SPirage-SRé (Sans Réacteur) used a piston radial engine with propellers:
