I see the debate is oriented around the Falkland-Islands/argentina context, but the module has also to make sense for other maps. It make the Mirage III more legitimate.
A Mirage IIIE would be awesome, and many people will buy it. Just see the vote to understant the Dagger would have a smaller success.

And also, the Mirage can have jato ! Not the Dagger !

The Shahak actually removed the RATO capability.

I would argue for the Mirage III. It can be used in far more settings.

Well the Mirage III seems like a necessity imo. Razbam is def the dev to do it too. Having said that, the Dagger is a really interesting aircraft that would be a great addition to DCS. Maybe one day they'll be able to add it also.

Happy with either one (but I voted Mirage III). A Mirage variant is essential, such a legendary jet.

Not interested in any of those.

I'd much rather see a Mirage 2000-5



Need something to fight against those Hornets

For me it depends on the variant.


Mirage III CJ or a Dagger then i go Dagger.

Mirage IIIEA or Dagger then i go Dagger.


For the Falklands scenario i see the Dagger as being more important then the Mirage IIIEA
(Larger numbers saw much more combat and had a direct impact on the conflict where as the IIIEA did not)
for a Falklands scenario we NEED a Dagger just as much as we need a Seaharrier or a Gr.3 where as a IIIEA is purely optional.


But if we are going outside of the Falklands i would prefer a Mirage IIIE
(Would still take a Dagger over a IIICJ though)
though in that scenario i would also prefer a Mirage V over a Dagger.

And if i had to pick between a Mirage IIIE or a Mirage V it would depend on the exact variant as there are many Mirage V variants that i would say are superior to the Mirage IIIE.

I can see why the vote skewed to the Mirage 3, but I guess those voting just don't care about having fuel to come back (or aren't interested in the Falklands conflict setting).


153 sorties from the Daggers. The Mirage 3's could only do pretend attacks. Shame the vote is not so useful for the setting, but either way I'm not too disappointed since the other aircraft might be more usable elsewhere.

Can you tell us which variant and why ?
