Mirage F.1 CT/CR
The Mirage F.1 is a French fighter and attack aircraft, successor to the popular Mirage III family. The French Air Force took interest in the fledgling fighter to meet its requirement for an all-weather interceptor. It entered service with them in 1974 and shortly after was deployed as the main interceptor of the French Air Force, a capacity which it continued to serve in until the arrival of the Mirage 2000. It later transitioned to an aerial reconnaissance role. During June 2014, the last French Mirage F.1s was retired from service. More than 720 Mirage F.1s were constructed between 1966 and 1992. It was succeeded in production by the Dassault Mirage 2000.
