Mirage IV is a 2-engine supersonic fighter jet developed for the French
Air Force to conduct nuclear air-to-ground missions against the Soviet
Union. The Mirage IV was developed on the basics of the Mirage III by
the French company Dassault. It has been in operational service with the
French Air force from 1964 till 2005. The Mirage IV has been replaced
by the Mirage 2000N which will
soon (2009) be replaced by a nuclear version of the Rafale.
