The Mirage 2000 is a fighter aircraft designed by the French company Dassault Aviation in the late 1970. Although the formula delta wing is reminiscent of the 1960 Mirage III and Mirage 2000 is comparable in size, it is in fact an entirely new plane, with a larger wing area, naturally unstable to improve maneuverability and equipped with electric flight controls. Commissioned in 1984, the Mirage 2000 is mainly used by the French Air Force which received 315 copies, while 286 others were exported to 8 different countries.

In 1972, the French Air Force launched the ACF program (Future Combat Aircraft) for which it seeks a twin-engine aircraft with Snecma M53 and with a fixed wing, designed for air superiority missions. While preparing a response to this call, the manufacturer Dassault Aviation launched the following year, with private funds, the study of a single engine aircraft delta wing called "Delta 2000". December 12, 1975, the ACF program is stopped, for cost reasons, and the government decided to adopt instead the project Delta 2000.
