According to this

http://www.defencenet.gr/defence/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=275&Itemid=1

all the problems with the ICMS-2000Mk3 and especially the RWR are solved and HAF will receive the 15 new m2k mkII by the end of this month.Also very soon 6 more m-2000 currently in HAI will roll out at Tanagra AFB since all of the needed adjustments have been made.After this 4 more m-2000s will be sent to HAI for updates.After the first deliveries HAF will have sub-strategic attack capabilities using the SCALP-EG.

Very good news for HAF.

A Question?

Have these 15 Mirages already been produced and waiting for the problems to be solved? Because the M-2000 assembly line of Dassault Aviation has recently been shut down and tools have been removed..

At last!
There has been a huge delay on this program.

Finally the Haf gets a very capable aircraft,
and most importantly a system of highly strategical
value.(Scalp-eg)

Since HAI is doing the upgrades of the 10 existing Mirages to the -5 MKII variant, I hope that we upgrade the remainder of the fleet of existing Mirages. Should NOT be much of a problem since HAI is doing the upgrade.

"He instituted the remarkable system of laws he had planned. So successfully did these pacify the state that the people hailed him as a god. Lycurgus then prepared to start on another journey and pledged all the people to uphold his laws till he returned. Then he left Sparta and never returned, so as thus to bind them forever to his laws." As the legend of Lycurgus goes

@electronix

I hope so too.25 m2ks are not enough.I think that the cost for this is small
isn't it?

The remaining Mirage 2000EGM/BGM will be upgrated as well. Recently, India will upgrade its Mirage 2000H to the -5 standard.

That's indeed good news. Still we have to upgrade all the remaining. Taking into account that we have 90 SCAPL-EG and only 1 can be mounted on a M2k-5 we definitely need more. Of course, the EF can carry them as well but nithing certain from that front so far...

Are you sure?I remember seen that in the new EMPAE.
I haven't read anything relative since then.
It will be a very good decision IMO.

The cockpit of the M2k-5 makes the F-16 B52+ cockpit look really old!

I suggest the Mirage lovers to take a closer look at the cockpit of the Block 60 which is being produced for the UAE now. M2k-5 looks pretty much antiquated in comparison.

Yeah well they paid Eurofighter prices for those Block 60's. They got fleeced.

Total EGMs were 32 prior to the recent accident so now they are 31.

10 will or have been upgraded to -5, that leaves 21 EGMs to be upgraded in the future.

Cheers,

In an article in one of our defence mags they were saying that the EGM will NOT be upgraded. The reason is that the -5 we are getting aren't qualified for the Exocet missiles.

Who ever wrote that is an idiot (not a rear occasion among journalists). The reason HAF Exocets are not certified for the -5 yet (or are they?) is because HAF didn't ask for it. In the original HAF plans 331sq (Theseas) with the EGMs would fly Exocet missions while 332sq (Geraki) with the -5s would fly SCALP EG missions.

If HAF decides to go for the full upgrade of the Mirage fleet (which seems to be the case) she will ceraintly ask for the certification of the AM-39 on the -5 which will be really trivial to obtain since the weapon is already certified for the base platform (EGM). And ofcourse Dassault will be more than happy to comply. AFAIK other -5 users around the globe don't use the AM-39. L'Armee De'l Air mounts it on the Mirage2000C.

Cheers,

Miltos
