French Text

The Mirage 2000N program was launched in 1978 to accomplish intercept missions and medium-range air to surface nuclear attacks in order to eventually replace the Mirage IVP which was terminated in 1990.

Based on the Mirage 2000B, it is equipped with a weapons system organized around an Antelope radar system, enabling automatic navigation and field monitoring, all while maintaining its in-flight auto-defense capabilities.

While the first models were only capable of carrying nuclear missiles, beginning with the 2000N-K2, the aircraft is now able to undertake conventional ground attack missions, with a large array of traditional bombs. The line of Mirage 2000N aircraft are a key element at the very heart of the French Strategic Air Command.
