Dassault-Breguet Mirage III NG

01/31/2008. Remarks by Johan Visschedijk: "In April 1981 Dassault-Breguet launched the Mirage III NG (Nouvelle Génération). Using the Mirage IIIE airframe the aircraft featured canards fitted to the air-intakes, highly-swept wing root leading edge extensions, in-flight refueling probe, fly-by-wire controls and a SNECMA Atar 9K-50 turbojet, producing 15,873 lb (7,200 kg) s.t with full afterburner. Although the changes showed improved performance, no production orders were placed."
