21 May 2017 - While visiting the forum at
Military AI Works I found two repaints for the AI Rafale by Nick Black/MAIW.
The first by Mark Beale is a Rafale M in the scheme worn at the 2014 NATO Tiger Meet.
The second by Drag is a Rafale B in 50th Birthday of the FAS (Forces Aériennes Stratégiques,
Strategic Air Forces) scheme.
19 May 2017 - The website transfer has been completed. There was a lot of behind-the-scenes work since
the domian name was somehow controlled by a third entity who wasn't convinced I was the owner of the website.
But it is all back under my own control now. If you have benefitted from this website please consider a
small donation so I can keep it going.
? May 2017 - I am in the process of moving the Mirage4FS.com website to a new host. As soon as you
(and I) can see this update message the process will have been completed. At the current cost I could not
afford to keep the website going with my own money even with the few donations
(those of you who have donated -- Thank You Again!). I will continue to update both locations until this
announcement appears to signal the new location is live.
15 May 2017 - A new texture set was released by Steven Kreusser for the
Mirage III/5/Nesher by Mark Harper. The scheme represents a
Mirage IIIOA in the "Fanta Can" scheme worn by the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Aircraft Research and
Development Unit (ARDU) in the 1980s.
10 May 2017 - Dan Hult painted textures for three aircraft types operated by Airborne Tactical Advantage
Company (ATAC). Included with the Hunter and L-39 fleets and flightplans are six textures for the
IAI Kfir C2. The textures are intended for the AI
USMC Kfir C2 (F-21A) by Mike Pearson.
5 May 2017 - Mark Beale has painted a texture set for the Super Etendard
of Nick Black. The scheme was worn by a Super Etendard Modernisé of the

Super Etendard in 1916.

19 April 2017 - L'Iguane has released two FS2004 Mirage III packages designed
around the Mirage III of J.E Narcizo. Each includes new textures by L'Iguane and modified FDE, panel, and
visual model file. See the Readme file for requirements and credits.
10 April 2017 - There has been some renewed interest in the Rafale M by
Bruno Mérelle (Thor's Hammer). It was brought to my attention that there was a
problem with my repaints when used with an external cockpit such as the FSX-Acceleration F-18. After reviewing
the problem I have updated my texture packages and
cockpit merge instructions accordingly.
The new packages are intended for use with the v2.2 update installed.

Mirage 2000C from Metal2Mesh. Both are for Armée de l'Air aircraft

assigned to SPA89 (Wasp). Tom has also updated his previous Armée
de l'Air Mirage 2000C repaints for EC 3/11 'Corse' and EC 1/2 'Cigognes' with improved normal and specular templates.

12 February 2017 - I have found an improved scenery for my favorite Armée de l'Air base. Gérard
Finaltéri, webmaster at Virtual Cors'Air, has made
updates to the scenery for BA 126 Solanzara (LFKS) he released in December 2009 with
Christian Santoni. He has also put together several new traffic files to
update the visiting aircraft to include the Rafale.  I recommend using this scenery with the Hi-Definition
photoreal ground polygon by Gilbert Gaussorgues.
2 February 2017 - Another installment of repaints by Tom Weiss for the
Mirage 2000C from Metal2Mesh. These are all fictitious representatives of
real Israeli Air Force F-16 or F-15 units. Included are 115 Agressor Squadron (The Flying Dragon Squadron),

21 January 2017 - Sim Skunk Works
have given an update on the status of their forthcoming Mirage F1. "F1 development has been stopped for a while to
give precedence to update F104 S/G with new radar and new weapon. It will resume soon, hope to have something serious
to show you within the first quarter of 2017." That is good news and hopefully anything learned from the F-104G/S
update will be applied to their Mirage F1.
