The Dassault-Breguet Mirage 2000 was selected in December 1975 as the future combat aircraft for the French Air Force, to see service through to, and beyond, the year 2000. Returning the pure delta-wing layout adopted for the earlier and highly successful Mirage III/V series of fighters makes the Mirage 2000 almost unique amongst current generations of advanced technology fighter aircraft. The delta-wing layout offers some advantages, but also has disadvantages and Dassault-Breguet carried out much development work to improve the efficiency of such planforms in the Mirage 2000, this is greatly assisted by the use of computerized controls and fly-by-wire technology which give full control over any inherently unstable flight characteristics throughout the performance range. First flown on 10 March 1978, the single-seat Mirage 2000C entered squadron service with the French Air Force in July 1984 to start the process of replacing the elderly Mirage IIIEs of the fighter squadron 1/2 „Cigognes“ at 102 Dijon-Longvic air base.
At Heller, we are constantly working to produce our products as sustainable as possible. In recent years, we have therefore taken many measures to increase resource efficiency as much as possible.
Since 2023, we have been producing all Heller model kits with recycled plastic. This gives existing plastic a new life in a great kit while maintaining the same quality.
Instead of packing our sprues in plastic bags, we use tissue paper to transport all components in a clean, protected and environmentally friendly way. Thanks to our seal closure, we do not need shrink film. This also significantly increases the recyclability of our packaging.
We are proud of our large archive of injection moulds. That is why we rework, repair and improve existing moulds instead of throwing them away. Great models are preserved and at the same time a lot of energy and material is saved. That's why we proudly display the year of manufacture of our moulds and the year of the last general overhaul clearly on every product box.
