Wikipedia
"The Dassault Mirage 2000 is a French multirole, single-engine fourth-generation jet fighter manufactured by Dassault Aviation. It was designed in the late 1970s as a lightweight fighter to replace the Mirage III for the French Air Force (Armée de l'Air). The Mirage 2000 evolved into a multirole aircraft with several variants developed, with sales to a number of nations. It was later developed into the Mirage 2000N and 2000D strike variants, the improved Mirage 2000-5 and several export variants. Over 600 aircraft were built and it has been in service with nine nations."


Features
AG1 - Engages nose wheel steering
AG2 - Toggles lights (police, navigational, strobes)
AG3 - Toggles formation lights
AG4 - Toggles extension/activation of aerial refueling light

AG6 - Deploys drogue chute
AG7 - Jettisons external fuel tanks
AG8 - Deactivation will turn off the engine

Loadout
- 1x external fuel tank
- 2x Matra R.550 Magic II
- 2x Matra Super 530D

Control Quirks
Lots of nose-up trim is required to fly level. It will nose down regardless at very low speeds.
Optimal touchdown speed during landing is approximately 250 mph (rotation speed is likewise). It is possible to land at lower speeds, depending on how many stores you have on the aircraft.

It is recommended to jettison the EFTs in an air-to-air engagement. They have been weighted to simulate the 6g fly-by-wire limit that is imposed on the real aircraft when it has EFTs attached.

Notable features that were missing from my initial build include:
- Camouflage
- High-quality custom weapons
- Superior flight model
- Suspended landing gear
- Extreme level of accuracy to the real aircraft compared to the original


Unit Info
This aircraft was modeled after the historical livery of Mirage 2000C unit "5 - 0J" from the Escadron de Chasse 2/5 "Île-de-France." It is currently stationed at Orange Air Base in France, with a modified tail livery. The squadron has served the Armee de l'Air (French Air Force) since 1941. It has employed the Mirage 2000 since the 1990s. Currently, they are responsible for training all new Mirage 2000 pilots, alongside their primary goal of defending the nation. The Mirage 2000B two-seater variant also assists them in this role.

    @WIZARD2017 It is a mod. You must download an image to your PC in order to use it in the SimplePlanes designer with the mod.

    I hear you - writing can easily be taken the wrong way, anyways I appreciate any comments on my uploads as always.

    Flight model - a couple of quick observations - COT is above COM which is causing the downward pitch (I added some weight to align it and solved it) and the control surfaces for pitch are too large which is causing the bobbing - either reduce them or move the CoM forward or backwards (need to find that sweet spot!)
    Hope this helps.

    @BogdanX Yes, there are lots of problems that ultimately root back to me not setting dragscale and massscale to 0 on parts that should have them. That resulted in the drag being quite severe, which had to be compensated by a lot of thrust, which messed up the T/W ratio... so on and so forth. In the end I felt that I was happy with it though, save for the ability to climb vertically indefinitely, since the turn rate/G-limiter are both pretty accurate and cool.
    @temporaryaccount Yes, his is amazing. I am trying to help him with it as much as I can using the research I have learned from this build, but he has already done an outstanding job without much assistance. I am as excited for his as you are, haha.

    In a bit of a harsh Way. “Oh, you think I’m done?” and “Here we see EXTREME Detail!” is pretty rude. I think he was triggered by the “extreme Level of Detail” Thing. @ainanen

    What I can say is... close, but no cigar.
    Once Bogan comes out with his mirage it’ll be far from being the best, but nice :)
    Psst try DesignerSuite!

    @RamboJutter Hmm, I understand. Thank you, I will look into it for my next build.
    @RAF1 Thank you. Fortunately the 2000 specifically has seen some success, compared to those that were hammered in the Falklands. Lol

    @ainanen yeah each circle in the roundel will have a ratio compared to the other, so a roundel like the HAF use has a 3:2:1 ratio so the largest is 3x the smallest. Different eras used different ratios. That website explains the RAF ones.
