Dassault Mirage IIICJ: Selling point of view.

Fine portrait of Israeli military commander (later Prime Minister) Lieutenant-General Itzrak Rabin and the Delta assets that made possible Rabin’s and Israel total victory during the Six-Days War, 1967. Marcel Dassault’s coreligionists unquestionable success really put the Mirage on the map. Its sales explosion started right there.

Blue merciless sky and mirror-like Shakars (Skyblazer, IIICJ’s nickname in Israel). The one in the foreground with enemy “scalps” seems to be “745.” Part of the 117 Squadron this Shakar was flown by Lt. Aven-Nir who shot down a rare Lebanese Hunter on 5 June 1967. The same fighter was also the demise of two Iraqi Hunters during the Six-Days War.
