Mirage F.1EQ-1
Unit: 92nd FS, IrAF
Serial: 4010

4010 belonged to the first batch of 16 F.1EQs supplied to Iraq between April and October 1981, where it entered service with the 92nd FS. The unit suffered extensive losses during the first series of engagements with IRIAF F-14s, most of which occurred in December 1981 inside the Kuwaiti airspace!

Mirage F.1EQ-1
Unit: 79 Sqn, IrAF
Serial: 4014

Probably the most-photographed and best-known Iraqi Mirage F.1 was the 4014. Used for weapon-testing in France, in 1980, it was seen carrying SAMP 400 LGB's, SYCOMOR ECM-pods, and various other equipment. Once in Iraq, this plane was used by various pilots of No.79 Squadron to claim a total of no less but 14 kills, in 1981 and 1982. At least five of these were considered as confirmed by the IrAF. These included a claim by Capt. Muhalab, from an air combat near Ahwaz, in June 1982, in which he had shot down an F-4E, the pilot of which was captured. The plane is shown with standard weapons configuration for intercept role: with a Matra Super 530F-1 under inboard pylon, and a single R.550 Magic Mk.1 on wing-tip. This Mirage survived the war and was later captured by US troops, in 2003.

Mirage F.1EQ-4
Unit: IrAF
Serial: 4510

By 1991 the surviving 50 Mirage F.1EQs were the most important interceptors of the IrAF. Although originally designed as multi-role fighters, and despite the fact that meanwhile the whole fleet was upgraded to a standard similar to the Mirage F.1EQ-6 - i.e. one that enable the aircraft not only the use of the AM.39 Exocet and AS.30L missiles, but also the Soviet-built Kh-29T/L guided bombs - once again during the II Persian Gulf War they were foremost used as interceptors. Operating alone, with poor GCI-support and mainly by night, however, Iraqi pilots had little chance against the USAF F-15s, supported by E-3A Sentry AWACS and EC-135 ELINT-gatherers.

Mirage F.1EQ-5
Unit: IrAF
Serial: 4578

From the standpoint of usual reporting about the war between Iraq and Iran, IrAF's Mirage F.1EQ-5s, equipped with advanced Cyrano IV-M radar and AM.39 Exocet missiles, deployed for anti-ship operations inside the Persian Gulfs, were definitely the 'stars' of this war. In fact, the IrAF experienced extensive technical problems with the type early during its combat career, problems with the reliability of the AM.39 Exocet missile, problems with the lack of pre- and post-strike reconnaissance, and heavy losses in 1988: during a two short engagements on the same day in February of that year, a single IRIAF F-14A shot down three Mirage F.1EQ-5s in quick succession. Despite much publicity, Iraqi anti-ship operations remain an unknown quality: due to the Iranians moving their tankers in convoys, protected by warships and interceptor aircraft, the Iraqis had over the time to considerably improve their tactics and diversify their means. Consequently, during the final 12 months of the war the IrAF Mirages were not fighting this war any more - but more frequently they were involved in operations that saw a combination of formations consisting of MiG-25s, MiG-23s, Su-20/22s - and even Tu-22Bs. Despite considerable losses, such formations were able to offer better mutual support to each other - regardless if by ECM-systems or by shock and confusion they would frequently cause.

Mirage F.1EQ-5
Unit: IrAF
Serial: 4579

Iraqi Mirage F.1EQ-5 in the 'classic' configuration used for anti-ship missions over the Persian Gulf, consisting of a single AM.39 Exocet anti-ship missile under the centereline and two RP.15 external tanks under the wings. The aircraft was slow and sluggish to fly in this configuration and consequently the pilots had to take a great care to prevent being intercepted by IRIAF fighters. In order to improve their survivability, however, from 1985 the Iraqis started mounting also ECM-pods and chaff&flare dispensers - as well as R.550 Magic missiles - in addition to Exocets and drop tanks! In such a configuration the effective combat range was actually considerably decreased, but from 1986 the Iraqis introduced two An-12BPs, equipped as tanker aircraft, and so even the operations deep inside the lower Persian Gulf were possible.
