 UAE’s Mirages to Get Lockheed Martin Sniper Pods

 Back on November 29, 2017,  Forecast International posted to its blog  that a deal concerning a Thales upgrade of the UAE Air Force’s Mirage 2000-9s, announced during Dubai Airshow 2017, would involve the TALIOS electro-optical pod.  However, on February 26, 2020, Lockheed Martin announced that it would instead be integrating its Sniper Advanced Targeting Pod with the UAE’s Mirages.

Non-econmically refuriushable as fighter aircrafts (and with warranty). Afterall, even F1 are being refurbished as agressors. Pity they do not hae the rdy, but still they could make nice agressors. Good find.

Notice how the Mirage seems to have better roll authority than a Rafale at high alpha.
