1/48 80493 Heller AMD Mirage IV P/A Bomber - Aircraft #53 (P Variant) or #29 or #4 (A Variant)
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good+++
Heller modified the molds to create the 'P' variant that fires the ASMP (Medium Range Air To Ground Missile). Parts are included for the 'P' and the 'A' variants as well as the correct weapons. Features very fine raised panel lines, good cockpit detail with crew, optional position crew hatches, two jet engines, AN-22 free-fall nuclear bomb, ASMP air to ground missile and two supersonic drop tanks. Molded in silver and clear. Never started. Inventoried with all parts, decals for three aircraft and instructions. The ASMP provided the Mirage IV force with a stand-off weapon, as previously they carried the AN-22 Nuclear Bomb. The first ASMP flew at between mach 2 and 3 and had a range of 80 to 300 km depending on the mission profile. The warhead is a TN81 nuclear bomb with 150 or 300 KT yield. Although the Mirage IV force was phased out in 1996, ASPM continues to serve with the Mirage 2000N, Super Etendard and Rafale. ASPM-A is an advanced version now in service with these aircraft. Thanks to Jean-Claude in France, we know this kit is the real 1/48 scale model of the Mirage IV; not the 1/50 scale molds cut in 1963.
