Wow, the super rare Mirage G. How about that? Very nice find, there, sir. The Mirage G was the only Mirage out of the series that was experimenting with the variable geometry wing concept. It also had one of the original SNECMA/PRATT & WHITNEY combination engines and was a beautiful aircraft. Eventually led to the development of the extraordinarily beautiful Mirage F-1.

But the Mirage G looked an awful lot like the MiG-23 from certain angles, especially the top.



Look at this thing! You can see how similar it is to the F-1 with the landing gears and even wings, without the variable geometry of course.



It was more of an experimental aircraft, of course. But what a beauty, just like the F-1.

Wow, I never knew about this version at all. Initial glance I thought it was F1.
Interesting. Yes it does look like the flogger from the top.
