Unlike most other success planes of the Mirage series, the F1 has a standard layout instead of a delta wing style. It's powered by a turbojet SNECMA Atar. The Mirage F1 began his career as an all-weather interceptor designated F1C. The main armament was the Super 530 F1C-to-air missiles. The Mirage F1B is a tandem two-seat variant of the F1C designed for training.
The Mirage F1E was a strike and attack aircraft dedicated to incorperated updated systems and radar. Dassault also designed a two-seat version of the F1E training and education, appointed F1D.
