Work is underway in France on the first two of 51 Mirage 2000H upgrades for the Indian Air Force, expanding their all-round combat capability and extending their lives to 2025.

Suppliers include Dassault, Snecma and Thales. The upgrade includes a new glass cockpit, helmet-mounted sight, and improved RDY multi-mode radar plus new communications, navigation and defensive systems.

New weapons will include the Mica active-radar air-to-air missile.
