The Mirage 2000-5F is a dedicated air-to-air fighter and only flown by the French Air Force. Thirty seven Mirage 2000's were upgraded to 2000-5 specifications as a stopgap measure while waiting for the Rafale. These upgraded aircraft were designated 2000-5F with the first aircraft arriving in Dijon in 1999. In 2011 the aircraft relocated to Luxeuil where twenty four 2000-5F's are still in service. Mirage 2000-5F 2-EB belongs to SPA 3 Cigogne de Guynemer that is assigned tail-code 2. Georges Guynemer was WWI French Air Force Ace with fifty four victories and considered a national hero.

It has a delta wing, one engine, a dual-intake, and can carry a range of air-to-surface weapons, including laser-guided bombs. Variants include a single-seat or dual-seat version. The dual-seat 2000N is nuclear strike capable, armed with nuclear weapons and equipped with navigation avionics that are capable of handling air-to-ground munitions.

Hobby Master's 1:72 scale Mirage 2000 is a sleek diecast model with crisp panel lines, manufactured with only the smallest amount of plastic. The side mounted engine intakes with fixed inlet cones are constructed in plastic for greater accuracy and the configurable canopy provides a clear view of the instrument panel, control stick and ejection seat. The rear turbine blades are easily seen inside the exhaust nozzle and the large refueling probe is mounted on the nose (in most releases). The thin yet solid metal wing features exceptional panel line details, flap and aileron actuator arms at the rear and a complete set of removable wing mounted ordnance.
