8 January 2018 - While trolling the files at I found a Mirage III repaint that I hadn't seen before.  It is from 2008 and is a photoreal repaint of a Mirage III in Swiss Air Force colors by Campbell Troy.  It is only textures but includes some panel mods as well and is intended for use with the FS2004 Mirage IIIEBR package by J.E. Narcizo.

4 January 2018 - Continuing with the Mirage III repaints by L'iguane, there are four examples this time.  The first two are of the Royal Australian Air Force No. 2 OCU at RAAF Base Williamtown (YWLM) in 1970.  Included are a Mirage IIIO and a Mirage IIID.  The second pair are a Mirage IIIEA and a Mirage IIIDA in Fuerza Aérea Argentina colors based at Base Aerea Tandil (SAZT).  The aircraft have special tail markings to commemorate the 40th Anniversary of the Mirage in Argentina in 2012 and the Retirement Ceremonies in 2015.  As with previous releases by L'iguane the textures require one of his Upgrade Kits and the original Mirage IIIEBR by J.E.
