No it is still yours - I wasn't trying to take credit, just pointing out how we both suffer from the same insanity ;D

Really great work, Slerski.  I've set up a new folder in my What If collection to save images of your work so I am looking forward to many more.   :thumbsup:

Here is the Dassault Mirage F3 !! (with a little disaster because I've broke the nose just before the pics  Bang head)

Dassault Mirage F3 (from Jane's World Aircraft)

Dassault designed the Mirage F3 as a fast interception complement to its Mirage F1C fighters. Using fly-by-wire technology, Dassault created a "canard" configuration, with the swept wing mounted high on the aft fuselage body and horizontal stabilizator mounted behind the air intakes. Mirage F3 also featured a pair of foreplanes in the nose, which were referred to as "moustaches". The moustaches were intended to provide better take-off performance and low-speed control.

The first prototype, which was developed by Dassault using its own funds, made its maiden flight on 25 December 1971. The type was officially accepted by the French Air Force in May 1973, at which time two further prototypes were ordered. With the greater thrust of its afterburning SNECMA Atar 9K-50 turbojet and a more studied aerodynamics, the F3 outclassed the Mirage F1C in interception mission.

In order to comply with the French Air Force's requirement for an all-weather interceptor, the first production Mirage F3C was equipped with a Thomson-CSF Cyrano IV-1 monopulse radar, with a limited look-down capability.

The Mirage F1 entered French Air Force service in September 1978 when the first production version was delivered. The aircraft was armed with two internal 30 mm cannons, and 2 Matra Super 530F medium-range air-to-air missiles carried under the wings. The F3 has also R550 Magic missiles mounted on rails on the wingtips. Mirage F3 served in 2 French Air Force wings, the 30čme Escadre de Chasse based at Reims and the 10čme Escadre de Chasse based at Creil. Mirage F3 was delivered to several country, sometimes in full operationnal standards (Australia Belgium and Israël), sometimes in downgraded export variant.

Variants
  • Mirage F3A : development version (3 aircrafts built)
  • Mirage F3B : two-seat operational conversion trainer (17 aircrafts built), delivered to French Air Force between 1981 and 1985. Also used by Australia (7 Mirage F3BA), Belgium (3 Mirage F3BB) and Israël (6 Mirage F3BI).
  • Mirage F3C : single-seat fighter (68 aircrafts built), delivered to French Air Force between 1978 and 1983. Also used by Australia (24 Mirage F3CA), Belgium (12 Mirage F3CB) and Israël (38 Mirage F3CI).
  • Mirage F3E : export version of the Mirage F3C. Used by Argentina (34 Mirage F3EA), Brasil (24 Mirage F3EBR), Irak (28 Mirage F3EI), Lebanon (4 Mirage F3EL) Morocco (26 Mirage F3EM), Qatar (33 Mirage F3EQ) and United Arab Emirates (12 Mirage F3EE).
  • Mirage F3F : export version of the Mirage F3B. Used by Argentina (8 Mirage F3EA), Brasil (5 Mirage F3FBR), Irak (7 Mirage F3FI), Lebanon (1 Mirage F3BL), Morocco (3 Mirage F3FM), Qatar (3 Mirage F3FQ) and United Arab Emirates (2 Mirage F3FE).





With Mirage F1C for comparaison

It's certainly a different bird with the swap like that - One could almost say it looks more like a Dassault project with the wings at the back like that.  Very cool.

SNCASE (Focke-Wulf) SE.191

On June 6th, 1944, the operation Overlord lives the landing of the allied Forces on the French territory. Regrettably, the relative failure of this one, aggravated by the loss of Omaha Beach within first hours of the opéraion, allowed to establish a stable bridgehead before June 18th.

The operations almost turned in the disaster on June 19th, when the artificial ports were hitted by a violent storm. Ammunitions and fuel supply became difficult, obliging the Allies to delay the fights and allowing the Wehrmacht to strengthen, in particular with the arrival of several Panzerdivisonen.

The taking of Caen, condition to blow up the bolt which surrounded the Allies, was long and expensive in men and materials, in spite of a wide control of the sky and a constant air support. The British troops dashed in the assault and in spite of the relentless resistance of the Germans, Caen fell finally on August 4th.

Aware of the situation, Hitler accepts - unwillingly told his close relations - to support the creation of a French defence force, including extremists favorable to Hitler, but also some "Malgré-nous" forced to fight for a regime in which they do not believe. Two branches were created, an Army Corps and an Air Force, consisted of only 5 fighter squadrons grouped together in 2 wings.

Too satisfied to help the Germans in return, the Pierre Laval governement suggests subcontracting the production of military material, in particular certain number of fighters, in diverse factories implanted in France. And so the RLM approves the production under license of Focke-Wulf 190A-8 and D-9 fighters, to unload the build lines of the Cottbus factory. This liberation was also a strategic calculation, allowing Focke-Wulf enginners to concentrate on the study of Ta152.

It is in September 1944 when the first copies took out production lines. Then GC II/2 and I/6 based at Lyon-Bron, received their first SE.190 (FW190A-8). The first SE.191 (FW190D-9) took out build lines in November 1944, the French engineers being supported by the German technicians and pushed by the Laval's Militia... The GC II/6 was equipped with the new FW190D-9, among which the appearance in the Western front (they operated since the Paris region) was very unpleasant for the Allies.

The presented aircraft is the personal plane of of Captain du Sautier. This plane, along with the 27 first aircraft production, where allocated to the 5čme escadrille of the GC III/6. Operating since Etampes, they were in charge of diverse interceptions, and also with tactical recce missions.

That SE 191 is drop-dead gorgeous, Slerski! I don't think I've ever seen more perfect Vichy stripes and the small roundels on the wings are a nice touch.

I have forgot to thanks everybody. So... thanks everybody.

I want to introduce a "new" creation, based on an old Hurri-bomber wreck. I haven't find a designation or a camo, but here is the stratospheric variant of Hurricane.
