    For the upgraded M-2000 why not? For a photo it's another history

    Indian Air Force successfully test fires long range air-to-air MICA missile

    The Indian Air Force has successfully fired recently acquired long range air-to-air MICA missile on a manoeuvring target from Mirage-2000 Upgrade combat aircraft.

    The pilot, now equipped with a display inside their helmet, is able to see superimposed radar data without having to reference any of the displays inside the cockpit. In operational terms, this means that in the case of air combat, the pilot, who is looking through their helmet, can direct weapons by merely pointing their head in the direction of what needs to be hit as opposed to having to manoeuvre the entire jet in the direction of the target - see target, lock on to target, launch weapons.

    Not an upgraded Mirage (-5 mk.2), all upgraded Mirages (-I/-TI) have a grey nose as well as a HMSD:

    True, the weapon integration and other Israeli upgrades will be done in India though, that's why they might used available fighters.

    The upgraded Mirage-2000s do not have nose probe. They are more like M2K-9

    Can't we simply buy Mirages instead of F16?

    If I were a DA sales person, I will make an offer to IAF to buy additional Rafale with one M2K free with every Rafale and India having to pay for only upgrade cost.

    Neither are there M2Ks available, nor capable enough for another 30 years of service and there was no way to move on with Dassault, that's why the SE issue came to life.
