The Mirage 2000-5 is the second generation of the Mirage 2000. The French Armée de l’Air  was 
replacing the older version of the Mirage 2000 and Dassault had hoped to sell the newer version 
to them but they had already committed to the Rafale. Dassault needed a sale to the ADA to help 
promote export sales so as a stopgap measure until the Rafale was delivered the ADA upgraded 
37 of their early Mirage 2000’s to Dash 5 standards. The Dash 5 had new RDY radar, a new 
APSI (Advanced Pilot-System Interface) cockpit, MICA missiles and the ICMS Mk. 2 (integrated 
countermeasures system). The Dash 5 is the first production fighter aircraft ever to be equipped 
with LCD displays. France, Greece, India, Qatar and Taiwan are equipped with the Dash 5 
version of the Mirage 2000.

In 1992 Dassault completed an agreement with Taiwan for the purchase of 48 Mirage 2000-5Ei 
single-seat and 12 Mirage 2000-Di two-seaters. The first 5 aircraft arrived by sea in May 1997. 
This was a historic moment for Dassault because the last French built aircraft that the RoCAF 
purchased was 24 Dewoitine D.150C piston engine aircraft in 1937. The transaction was named 
“Fei Lung” (Flying Dragon). Along with the aircraft the RoCAF purchased 960 MICA medium-
range and 480 Magic II short-range air-to-air missiles. Since the two-seater Mirages don’t have 
internal guns some center-line twin gun pods with DEFA 554 cannons were acquired. Also on the 
shopping list were support equipment, auxiliary fuel tanks, helmets and G-suits. The RoCAF also 
ordered some ASTAC electronic intelligence (ELINT) pods for their Mirages.

The 499th Tactical Fighter Wing, also refer to as the 2nd TFW in some publications, is stationed 
at Hsinchu Air Base and is the only wing in the ROCAF to have the Mirage 2000-5 aircraft. The 
499th is comprised of three squadrons the 41st that received the first aircraft, 42nd, and 48th and 
each squadron was allotted 20 Mirages. Late in 1999 the RoCAF lost 2 Mirages in two separate 
training accidents. On November 26, 1998 the last Mirages was delivered and November 1, 2004 
the 41st and 42nd TFS were upgraded to TFG.
