Mirage 2000D livery commemorating the 30th Anniversary of the raid on Ouadi Doum

In February 1987, French Air Force launched a raid from Bangui against Libyan held airport in Ouadi Doum in northern Chad.
The raid was composed of 4 Mirage F1 (acting as bait for the SA-6 Flat Face radar) and 7 Jaguar equipped with AS37 Martel anti radar missiles.
The succesful destruction of the runway and the radars deterred any further air raid from Libya against Chad.

This livery , worn by a real 2000D, commemorates the event.

As usual, thanks to Frenchy for the template and Speckfire for the specular file.
NB: Specular files are deactivated due to difficulty with dynamic numbering, but can be reactivated in description.lua (remove the -- in front of the SPEC files lines)
Dynamic numbering is inhibited.
