OK. the Mirage 5 SDE is a Single-seat radar-equipped fighter-bomber version that was built for Egypt and is equivalent to Mirage IIIE and they were delivered to Egypt in 1974 and I assume it is still in service?

and Pat...... did you look in the Egyptian OOB for the Rafael ? it's there entering service 7/2015

Don,
I already knew it was in there sometime ago, I remember posting on it's possible buy to acquisition (REFALE) though I don't know who purposed it for the game.

I thought, I commented that I added it just to close out the "combat" jets supplied by France between 1970-2020. If not, my apologies for not stating that in my last post.

Regards,
Pat

The Mirage 5 is now in the Egyptian OOB and it has its own new Icon replacing an old SSI Mirage repaint that had been sitting unused in the graphics files for years

Fallout Re: Jets & Planes but no UAV's here.

I feel it necessary to thank Mark for the Egyptian MIRAGE "catch", it probably goes without saying that issue has been around for a very longtime.

But it's also refreshing to see players pointing out these things, especially from countries that might not always be on the "radar screen" and quite frankly, it's good to know you're not alone in supporting the "little guys" in the game. OWOOOB!

And Don, responded as usual to these "things" and the issue is done.

So knowing the "boys" can use a break, I'll be working in the "dark" where I can promise every continent will have issues covered when "Plan B" is executed.

Regards,
Pat

Fallout Re: Jets & Planes but no UAV's here.

F-35C UPDATE: FINALLY, the USN's F-35C will be making it's FIRST deployment (On the USS CARL VINSON.)) later this year in a consolidated air wing. They've not gone to sea since 2018 when they were tested for carrier qualification operations.

Also the new tilt rotor CMV-22 OSPREY will be going to sea on the same deployment to test it's transport capabilities (It has already flown in an "air ambulance" capacity.).

Of course again, all F-35 variants are still only IOC. The program starting around this summer through 2022 will be suffering across all military services from a severe shortage of engines, which expected to limit operations. I believe I've already posted on this issue.

China has tested a twin seat (Pilot/Guy in Back) J-20 (Unit 164 China) prototype. We're still years away from it entering service; but presumably when it enters service, it will be used for training or an EW/SEAD/Heavy Strike version of the J-20.
