Prototypes expérimentaux Dassault 1960-1980

Not sure that there will be a lot of new in this book. And if we don't live in Paris difficult to know that before to order it.

I presume that there could be (the questions are what is exactly "experimental" and if only military planes are studied ?)  :


-late prototypes of Mirage III/5/50 (like the C2 and the Milan)

-late prototypes of Mirage IV

-Engines testbed Mirage III T

-VTOL (Mirage III) Balzac

-VTOL  Mirage IIIV 1 and 2

-some prototypes of Mirage F1 (ATAR 9)

-Mirage F1 E (M-53)

-Mirage F2

-maybe Mirage F3 (unfinished prototypes)

-Mirage G

-Mirage G8 01 and 02

-maybe Mirage G8A (unfinished prototype)

-maybe some models (like some Cavalier) ?

-Jaguar M

-some prototypes of Alpha-Jet

-some prototypes of Super-Etendard

-early prototypes of Mirage 2000

-Mirage 4000

-Something on Falcon or Mercure or other civilian planes or spaceplanes or missiles ? (the author seems to write usually more on military than on civilian)

If the author stays in 1960-80 strictly : no Rafale, Mirage III NG / 50 M or EX.

Remember that Histoire & Collections already has a book telling the part of this story that has to do with VTOL aircraft.  I bought it when it was affordable (current prices are a joke) and it's pretty good, though I still wish they had made an English-language edition.

Yes, and it's the same author.

I presume that the H&C part will be inside the new ETAI book.

Amazon-France says that it will be out the end of this coming June.  I am quite tempted to order through them.

The other books by Hervé Beaumont look also very interesting!! B) I should order "Avions nucléaires français" (but 58 Euros....)

I understand. The ETAI books are "heavy" (and not cheap...) :-\

Oh yes. The wishlist is always long - the money always short...

After a first flipping through the book I have to say just two words: Highly recommended  :) !
