Frankreich schickt Mirage Kampfjets in die Ukraine

By Jordi Bou

June 7, 2024 - Frankreich will Mirage 2000 Kampfjets nach Kiew schicken und auch ukrainische Piloten auf der Mirage trainieren, als Teil der neuen militärischen Kooperation mit dem Land, während es die russische Invasion zu bekämpfen hat.

The pledge came after NATO allies, including Belgium, Norway, Denmark and the Netherlands, committed to dispatching about 80 U.S.-made F-16 fighters to Ukraine.

The Mirage 2000-5, an upgraded version of the Mirage 2000 series, features improved radar systems and compatibility with advanced weaponry.

Dassault Aviation produced approximately 600 Mirage 2000 jets, with half of them exported to countries such as Greece, the UAE, and Taiwan.

The Mirage 2000-5 variant is equipped with the RDY radar by Thales, which can detect typical targets at a range of 130 kilometres and simultaneously track eight targets while engaging four.
