    I'm pretty sure the IAF only bought 51 Mirage 2000s.

    IAF ordered 59 Mirage 2000's out of which 7 crashed.
    IAF ordered 80 MiG 29's out of which 12 crashed.
    IAF ordered 186 Jaguars.

    Originally two squadrons (36 nos.) were purchased which were of Mirage 2000H types, then around 18 Mirage 2000 Vs were purchased in a deal through UAE.
