The Dassault Mirage 2000 is a French multirole, single-engine fourth-generation jet fighter manufactured by Dassault Aviation.
It was designed in the late 1970s as a lightweight fighter to replace the Mirage III for the French Air Force (Armée de l’Air).

The Mirage 2000 evolved into a multirole aircraft with several variants developed, with sales to a number of nations.
It was later developed into the Mirage 2000N and 2000D strike variants, the improved Mirage 2000-5 and several export variants.

Over 600 aircraft were built and it has been in service with nine nations.

Taiwanese Mirage 2000s were delivered from May 1997 to November 1998, and are based at Hsinchu AB.
The RoCAF’s Mirages have suffered from low operational readiness and high maintenance costs; the harsh environment and high operational tempo had caused higher-than-expected wear and tear.
After the presence of cracks in the blades of the aircraft’s engines were detected in 2009, Dassault worked with Taiwanese authorities to successfully rectify the issue and provided compensation for the engine damage.
