The Mirage 2000N is the nuclear attack version of the Mirage 2000 that carries the air-to-ground medium-range self-guided missile (ASMP and later ASMPA). Initial test flights of the two prototypes took place in 1983 and the Mirage 2000N became operational in 1988.

Its fuselage is similar to that of the Mirage 2000B, a two-seat trainer adapted to fly long distances at low altitude. The officer responsible for operating the systems - navigation, countermeasures, weapons, and radar - sits in the rear seat.

75 aircraft have been produced by Dassault Aviation.

These aircraft have equipped the Strategic Air Forces (SAF) squadrons, EC 1/4 Dauphiné and EC 2/4 La Fayette at BA116 Luxeuil Saint-Sauveur - as well as EC 3/4 Limousin at BA 125 Istres Le Tubé.

In addition to the permanent alert posture linked to the nuclear mission, held since 1988, these squadrons distinguished themselves during air operations in Bosnia-Herzegovina and Yugoslavia (Kestrel Operation - 1994) from Cervia in Italy.

It was the same in 2011, during Operation Harmattan, when Mirage 2000Ns from Souda in Crete took part in ground attack missions.

In August 2015, during Operation Chammal, personnel from EC 2/4 La Fayette, the last Mirage 2000N squadron, were sent to Jordan to fight the Daesh terrorist group in Iraq and Syria. These aircraft and crews left the theater of operations on 25 August 2016 after nearly 500 sorties.

The aircraft will then contribute to operations in the Sahel-Saharan strip alongside the Rafale and Mirage 2000D, this deployment being the final external operation of the EC 2/4 La Fayette.

In June 2018, the Mirage 2000N was definitively withdrawn from service, after 30 years of service in the French deterrent.

True flagship of Dassault Aviation and mythical aircraft of the French history of wings, Barnstormer offers here 2 versions of the polo Mirage 2000 N to commemorate its 30 years of career in the service of France.
