The Mirage III/V is one of those rare girls who just keeps getting better looking with age...which is a lot more than can be said of the human variety.
It isnot so much its beauty but the fact that it has fitted into a niche role for PAF where it is perfect, cheap and cheerful.

Paf never fired one in 71 or ever in-fact I read in some case they were jettison to get weight off


Launch parameters made it not use fuel in combat conditions ??

Long long time ago, this is from my predecessor/mentor - they had evaluated R530 for F1AZ/III's but found the performance was not to the mark; it was decided not to pursue any of these as they were highly prone to ECMs. Super R530 was different though.
