    PAKDEF.info states that PAF also used SUPER MARTA-530f on mirage too,which is used by india on mirage-2000 as well.
    its range was 25 km.

    The Super 530F missile has been in service with the French Air Force since 1980, with production ending in 1985. Development of the Super 530D started in 1979 and the missile entered service in 1987. It is believed that a total of 2,370 Super 530F and Super 530D missiles has been ordered. R530 missiles were used by the Argentine Air Force in the Falklands/Malvinas conflict in 1982. Exports of the three versions have been made to several countries, including Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Columbia, Egypt, Gabon, India, Iraq, Kuwait, Libya, Pakistan, South Africa, Switzerland, Venezuela and Zaire.

    one is a Semi active BVR and the other is a 90 aspect IR missile

    You sure PAF has 530 D??

    sir.FATMAN said once that PAF mirage ROSE posses the BVR capability and it uses RSAF R-darter copy made by pakistan.
    but where it is loaded,under wing launcher can only launch INF-RED seeking missile.


    AND

    why PAC didn't installed canard to ROSE upgrade,was that a expensive
    Upgrade.?

    We do not have any 530Ds. Those are in any case very limited BVR AAMs.

    ROSEII and III are the exact same thing. The only difference was that the two upgrades were done in different batches. The first batch was called ROSE II and 2nd one ROSE III.

    Contrary to the first post which shows AM-39 for ROSE I aircraft, the AM-39 is only mated to Mirage Vs with Agave radar. These Mirages have not undergone the ROSE upgrade because they are specialized for maritime attack role.

    Mirage also use a guided air to ground weapon by the name MUPSOW imported from South Africa and tested extensively by PAF during the 90's which is a long range surgical strike weapon. The BVR capability is very much there with appropriate options. That's all i can say

    I read some where these mirages are actually SUB SONIC ie cannot acheive mach 1.

    In other words the first super sonic mirage was the F1 which flew in the 1970s 10 years after the mirage 5

    Also that even TODAY PAF deploys over 170 mirage 3/5 AS PART of its FRONTLINE FLEET.

    pac HAVE DONE very well to stil keep them flying after 40 years of service

    Not quite. The above one is Raptor

    This is Mupsow

    85af9403d6fa9a7c9af47ac89aa6d020.jpg

    Description:

    The Kentron MUPSOW (MUlti-Purpose, Stand-Off Weapon) is a multi-purpose, surgical-strike weapon, designed to neutralize enemy targets such as airfields, bunkers and command-and-control centres at stand-off ranges. Pinpoint accuracy is achieved by using an advanced navigation and terminal guidance technology (data link, choice of TV, IIR or MMW seekers). The airframe is made out of composites, powered by a turbojet.

    The Mupsow is a South African development on which Kentron has been working under contract from the Air Force since 1991, with unpowered flight tests commencing in 1997. The MUPSOW is thought to be an extension of the H2 stand-off weapon program. It is not known if Mupsow has entered SAAF service.
