More about the….The Mirage F1V2

The Mirage F-1 is a defense and air superiority single-seater plane. This revival was made possible by technological advances which permit manufacture of ultra-thin but robust wings, enabling at supersonic speeds flight performance equivalent to that of delta wings. The integrity of the fuselage structure allows the aircraft to carry a maximum amount of fuel. The Mirage F-1 prototype made its maiden flight with René Bigand at the controls, 23rd December 1966, at Melun-Villaroche (the Seine-et-Marne region of France). Commissioned by the French Air Force in 1973, more than 700 Mirage F-1’s have been sold to some 11 countries. The Dassault Mirage F-1C was the standard French fighter before Mirage 2000 entered service in the air force in 1984.
The wings are high-mounted, swept-back, and tapered. Missiles are usually mounted at the wing tips. There is one turbojet engine in the body. There are semicircular air intakes alongside the body forward of the wing roots. There is a single exhaust. The fuselage is long, slender, pointed nose and a blunt tail. There are two small belly fins under the tail section and a bubble canopy. The tail is swept-back and tapered fin with a blunt tip. The flats are mid-mounted on the fuselage, swept-back, and tapered with blunt tips.

-Astac

ASTAC is an ELINT/ESM system designed for detection, identification and localisation of radars of all types. It is suitable for medium and high altitude stand-off reconnaissance missions, or at low altitude on the battlefield and in penetration, where it can collect data for avoidance or destruction of anti-air defenses. The ASTAC tactical signals analyserpod is a light supersonic pod that is easy to install under any combat aircraft. It is currently in operation on French Air Force’s Mirage F1CRs and the Japanese Air Force’s RF-4E aircraft.

Non-retractable, but removable, optional flight refuelling probe on starboard side of nose.

COMMENT:

Once upon a time the Mirage F1V2 was created for FS2002, so I, Ferdy’s reviewer got it and, I put my eyes on this fabulous aircraft and I decided to make a review on it. This Mirage F1V2 has been on my mind since I started doing reviews for FSPLANET.COM. I have seen that this aircraft does not have a main panel, but it does have a spectacular virtual cabin including a full viewable panel with all gauges working on it. It also has two detailed air brakes that appear from lowest part of the aircraft, like the real model. While you are in the runway the wheels have movement as in the reality, and as a good fighter’s file the back and only turbine has fire coming out of it when you accelerate the aircraft. Another thing to say about the wheels is that the direccional wheel, that is the one on the front, does have movement when you turn any side, also a have spotted that the 3D pilots head moves the way the directional wheel is moving. After all a good plane with very good textures. I recommend you to download it from FSPLANET.COM by clicking the link at the bottom of this page.

My rating is 10/10.
