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.
To improve handling, FW of Switzerland developed a set of canard winglets fitted above the intakes. These were known as the "FW C70 Canard" and used on the Mirage IIIS, Mirage 50EV and Mirage IIIEBR-2.
The set includes a single nose cast in polyurethane resin and is designed for the Italeri Mirage IIIE kit.
