DCS: Mirage F1

Home > Products > Planes > DCS: Mirage F1

The Aerges Engineering Team is pleased to introduce the DCS: Mirage F1. The Mirage F1 is a legendary single engine French fighter jet from the Cold War era. It has had an illustrious career serving with the air forces of France, Spain, Greece, Iraq and many other countries and has taken part in multiple conflicts. From its original role as an all-weather interceptor, it has evolved with multiple versions into a capable multirole platform.

The DCS: Mirage F1 will allow virtual pilots to accurately experience the feeling of flying a 1970s third generation aircraft. This is a particularly interesting aircraft, as it is equipped with a more sophisticated flight control system and navigation suite. However, it lacks any screens or computer assistance and has to be flown carefully and with skill.

Early Access features:

  • In the release into Early Access, the Mirage F1 CE will be available in an almost complete state. As development continues, the other Mirage F1 planned models (EE, BE and M) will be added. Some of the most relevant features available at the release date are:
  • Professional Flight Model (PFM) based on performance and engineering data of the real aircraft. Situations of high angle of attack and outside the flight envelope like stalls and spins are also accurately represented.
  • Extensive and detailed simulation of all flight systems:
    • Flight control system, both in its normal electro-hydraulic mode and in degraded modes.
    • SNECMA Atar 9K-50 engine including working envelope, damage, compressor stalls, flameouts and emergency modes.
    • Cyrano IV-M radar, a unique Cold War era radar in DCS.
    • Electric system.
    • Hydraulic system.
    • Fuel system.
    • Navigation suite: Navigation Indicator (IDN), TACAN, VOR and INS.
    • Radios: TRAP 136 and TRAP 137B.
    • Electromechanical 1970s era Thomson optical sight (a predecessor of present-day HUDs).
    • Integrated ALE-40 countermeasure suite.
    • Internal and external lighting.
    • Armament system.
    • RWR (BF and AN/ALR-300).
  • Extremely high-quality 3D model, based on blueprints and laser scanning of a real Mirage F1. Includes animations, lights and a damage model.
  • Very accurate 6-DOF (Degrees of Freedom) cockpit with realistic and detailed instruments and controls.
  • BARAX ECM pod.
  • Variety of air-to-air and air-to-ground weapons, some of them not seen before in DCS:
    • Short range IR missiles: MATRA R550 Magic I, AIM-9 J, AIM-9 JULI, AIM-9 B, AIM-9 P.
    • Medium range missiles: MATRA R530 IR and EM.
    • Long range missile: MATRA S530 F.
    • Rocket launchers: MATRA F1 and F4.
    • Antirunway Durandal and cluster Belouga bombs.
    • SAMP family of bombs (both free fall and parachute equipped)
    • Laser guided GBU-10, GBU-12 and GBU-16.
    • Other American and Spanish made bombs.
  • Sound modelling based on recordings from the real aircraft.
  • Extremely realistic flyable simulation of the Mirage F1 CE, EE, BE and M models. The BE and M will be released after the CE and EE.
  • AI models for most other variants of the Mirage F1: C, CT, CR, EQ, EDA...
  • A vast variety of liveries for the different countries that operated the aircraft.
  • Interactive training and practice missions that will help you gain proficiency in the F1.
  • PDF user manual that will give you pilot level understanding of all the systems in the aircraft.
