Okay, this idea is a little bit silly. The delta wing is not good for an embarked plane, besides mono-reactor. But I had a Mirage III wreck abadoned then I decided to make my second creation for " Navalize It!! ".

Some pics of the wreck

And how could it be silly if it incorporates one of the most beautiful aircraft ever to take to the skies?  :wub: :wub: :wub:

Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?

Slerski

Ok ok. Maybe it is the greatest idea that Dassault's engineers never had  ;D.

When I read Mirage IIIN, I thought of a nuclear strike variant of our beloved Mirage (sounds like Mirage 2000N)...
... now I am glad to see that I was wrong! :lol:

Looking forward for the rest of the build!

(By the way, would it not be more appropriate to call it Mirage IIIM for a navalized version?)

Slerski

I thought about Mirage IIIN (for Naval) but there is a little confusion with the N for the Nuclear variants. But in RW, the nuclear variant was the Mirage IIIE. Mirage IIIM (for Marine, not Morocco or Malta I suppose) is a good appellation too. I have to choose  :banghead: I'll think during the built (or maybe I can ask your opinions).

Well if you think a delta is too difficult for carrier operations, add canards and stroger undercarriage (remember Rafale). On the other hand, N can mean Nuclear strike, from a Navy carrier! :thumbsup:

Just fit canards, it flies better with those :wub:

Maybe pop-out foreplanes in the nose like the Swiss Mirage Milan:

Here is a first update


Front undercarriage (taken from... heu... je sais plus, maybe Rafale M)


The arrestor hook and rudders

Thanks to all for the "Canard" idea. I love the pics Greg. Mirage with moustaches  ;D

So if a navalised Mirage is having canards, and canard is French for duck, why not name this build the French for 'Sheldrake'?  ;D ;D

The french word is "Tadorne"... Doesn't sound very good. Maybe "Barracuda" (Barracuda) ou "Espadon" (Swordfish)(I found Exocet very nice but a Dassault Exocet carrying Matra Exocet...)
