Very reliable Wiki
India has acquired a total of 51 Mirages, which include 41 single-seater Mirage 2000Hs and 10 two-seater Mirage 2000TH trainers. The Indian Air Force named the Mirage 2000 Vajra (Thunderbolt). India also purchased appropriate stores along with the fighters, including ATLIS II pods and laser-guided weapons.
Bharat-Rakshak not very reliable but they have photo of mirage with ATLIS-II

Would be easier if we know which aircraft was used as launching platform , Su30/Mirage/Jags
