The Dassault Mirage IIIE was developed into the Mirage 5 aircraft after Israeli experience in the Six Day War. The main differences were the avionics from the bay behind the cockpit and rocket motor capability were removed, and an extra set of hard points added under the fuselage. The Mirage 5 became an export success and the type continued into service well into the 21st century.
The Mirage 5 design initially entered service in Israel at the "Nesher", and an undelivered order was accepted by the French Air Force as the Mirage 5F. A number of Neshers were subsequently sold to Argentina where they entered service as the "Dagger".
The set includes a single nose cast in polyurethane resin and is designed for the Italeri Mirage IIIE kit.
