With their supersonic speeds, state-of-the-art missiles and split-second control, modern fighter planes are arguably the most sophisticated weapons in the world. Among them, three exceptional planes that changed the history of aviation. In 1949, the Ouragan is the first French aircraft with a jet engine. Thirty years on, the Mirage 2000 takes to the skies.
A fighter that flies at twice the speed of sound and can move very fast even at the lowest altitudes. Another 20 years on, it is followed by an even more sophisticated aircraft: the Rafale, a technological gem that can land on a stretch of ground no longer than a tennis court. So, how did the Rafale, the Mirage 2000 and their precursor, the Ouragan, revolutionize air combat?
