France Awards Contract for the Mid-Life Upgrade of its Mirage 2000 D Fighters

07/19/2016

Following the decision by the Ministerial Investment Committee in late 2015, the Direction générale de l’armement (DGA) has awarded Dassault Aviation and MBDA a contract for the mid-life upgrade of the Mirage 2000D fleet. 

The contract covers 55 aircraft operated by the French air force. The goal of the mid-life upgrade is to allow them to operate alongside the Rafale combat aircraft beyond 2030. 

In addition to the modernization of their avionics, the upgrade includes the fitting of an automatic cannon for ground attack as well as the replacement of their previous-generation Magic self-protection missiles by the MICA. 


This program will allow the ministry of defense to maintain the force levels established by the White Paper on Defense and National Security, or a combined 225 combat aircraft for the air force and navy.
