Fighters Mirage F.1 French Air Force for Morocco and Libya?

13
The French newsletter "Intelligence Online" in the article "Des Mirages F1B pour la Libye ou pour le Maroc" announces plans for the future fate of the Dassault Mirage F1.CR/F.1B fighters that are being withdrawn from the French Air Force.

By June 2014, the French Air Force must finally write off the last 15 single-seater reconnaissance Mirage F.1CR fighters and several Mirage F.1B sparks that are in service. But some of these aircraft can change the colors of camouflage and still fly in the skies of North Africa - in the Air Force of Morocco or Libya. Today, these countries are showing interest in Mirage F.1B “backparts”, since this modification has already become rare in the market.

Moroccan pilots regularly visit France and fly French aircraft, and Libyan delegations have been trained in Reims for several years. At that time, the government of Nicolas Sarkozy decided to reduce the size of the Mirage F.1 fighter fleet purchased in 1970's. Mirage F.1CR aircraft can be upgraded for export deliveries. The companies Sagem and Thales, having formed the Astrac Exposition, upgraded the Moroccan Mirage F.1 aircraft, equipping them with a new radar and MICA missiles and AASM guided bombs used by Rafale fighters. Thales also upgraded Spanish Mirage F.1990 in 1's.

    This is commerce ... there is a lot to learn ... To give old stuff to Libya, well, it's not for nothing that they "democratized" it with bombs ...

    Why not? Here the Jews have patched up their old "Kefirs" and poured in to everyone they can. Well, what about the Franks, the worse? The main thing is that the piarasty will thoroughly promote the "glass cabins" and it's in the hat. Although the same Libyans will do it anyway, will take.

    I wonder at what price will the French bring in their Mirage F-1?

    The French still fly on the Mirage F1.
    But we did not save the MiG-27, and he was probably younger than Mirage ...

      Well, first of all, the MiG-27 is not an air combat fighter, but a strike aircraft. Secondly, they continued to produce the Mirage F-1, so their age is relatively small, and our MiG-27 stopped releasing (as far as I know) after 1985. But in general I agree with you, we, too, could keep the old samples of the 2nd and 3rd generation for sale in third world countries.

        In Chechnya, the MiG-27 and the latest modifications of the Su-17 would save lives.
        Yes and take the Su-24/27 suspension.

          I agree! If they had not rotted in "storage", they could have provided additional assistance to the Russian troops.

          They say that they intend to dispose of the remaining Su-24s after they are removed from service. And it would be possible to sell them to third countries.

            It would be great if they sell the Su-24, the demand for it should be
            The West is still selling old diesel submarines, and we are cutting metals ... Half of all diesel in the world were made in the USSR, oh how much could be sold to non-rich countries instead of meaningless ...

            they were rotted for storage in order that they could not provide assistance to the troops.

                no, you just do not write about this ... you suggest that this "coincidence" was an unintentional accident.
                whether you do it consciously or not is another matter.

            Was the Tu-160 in Ukraine in the 90s sold to third countries (or transferred to Russia), or was it urgently "disposed of" with a sledgehammer under the supervision of the CIA?

    The French are acting wisely, they are trying to sell even outdated fighters. If the Yeltsin authorities had not sent for scrap and storage MiG-23, Su-17, MiG-27, then we could do the same. And while the aviation of the "Soviet heritage" continues rot under the open sky, and before that no one is paying attention. request

    Great gesheft. Do not spend money on storage and disposal, but give all the junk like a gift .... Here you can save your money, international respect and long-term maintenance and modernization contracts ....
