Le programme ASMP démarre en 1978 en vue de disposer d'un missile Air-Sol Moyenne Portée optimisé pour un emport par le futur Mirage 2000 N.
The ASMP program was begun in 1978 with the aim of producing a medium-range air-to-ground missile to be carried by the future Mirage 2000N. In the interim before the new Dassault bomber was brought into service, 18 Mirage IVAs were transformed into the IVP model, a version with equal penetration capacities, capable of carrying the CT52 reconnaissance container with cameras and thermo graphic infra –red system. The first operational squadron scrambled from Mont-de-Marsan on 1st May 1986 fitted with the new supersonic missile fitted with a nuclear warhead, which could be replaced by a conventional explosive designed for administering an inhibiting shot across the bows. From July 1988 the 2000N, of Luxeuil air base, took over this role. Until their withdrawal in June 2005, the Mirage IVP still in use will be limited to the role of strategic reconnaissance aircraft.
