A special thanks Aeyes (www.cockpits.nl) for allowing me to use parts of his graphic work.
Thanks to Antoine Grondeau (www.wingshots.net for allowing me to use his photos caught on www.aviation-fr.info
This pit has been made from photos and datas found on the web, but because of insufficient resolution, my limited skills and to save time I used parts of existing cockpits.
This concern pilot’s arms and legs, some few switches and the background of side avionics panels. I also used the canopy frame and 2 views of an existing Mirage 2000-C cockpit (10_12_dl, 10_12_dr) as background for the perspective. But I don’t know the author!
Unlike Aeyes’ work this graphics are not an exact replica of the true cockpit. I largely adapted them for use in Falcon, most of the time I retained original inscriptions of the switches and failure panel. I made this choice because of difficulty to remember the translation of all the switches when not flying always on the same plane. I think it is hard enough to find their place in the cockpit.
Nevertheless it takes some practice to get used to switch rapidly between head-down and head-up, but this is a challenge that faces a real life Mirage 2000-C pilot. You can cheat by using the ghost-mfd view (Shift + 1).
The wide view (Shift + 2) is no longer functional. Its use could result in CTD.
Finally I’m sorry but forget about night flying for the moment, it’s awful at night! I will try to correct this later.
Send me feed back, suggestions or anything else to improve this pit at email@example.com
I don’t have internet at home for the moment, this mail is host by my mobile phone operator, so I’ll be warned of new e-mail. But each e-mail is limited to 2 Mb So if you have pick-up interesting things on the web, send me the links rather than large zip files.
Some few switches not used in the following Ramp-Start procedure.
I also add a file to correct the main weapon of the Mirage 2000-C: the Matra Super 530-D. In Free- Falcon this weapon is modelled with an active radar seeker, whereas it equipped with semi-active radar seeker (like Sparrow). It changes everything in the way of fighting, so I advise you to use it.
The default weapon loads are also totally absurds. For air to air missions the one shown is the only one which is valid. For air to ground strikes, don’t load side fuselage stations with weapon weighting more than 500 lbs (excepted BLG-66 cluster bomb).

Hardpoints and Pylons
The Mirage 2000 has nine hardpoints that can carry a total of 6300 kg. Some sources quote a figure of 6500 kg for the 2000D. The nine hardpoints are comprised of four underwing points (two under each wing) and five fuselage points (two forward, two rear and one centreline). All hardpoints are capable of carrying air-to-air and air-to-ground ordnance. The load limits are as follows:
Outer wing station 300 kg each
Inner wing station 1800 kg each
Forward fuselage station 400 kg each
Rear fuselage station 400 kg each
Centreline station 1800 kg
Generally the outer wing stations are used soley for the carriage of R550 Magic2 shortrange AAMs. The inner wing stations can carry fuel, guided and unguided weapons. The heaviest weapon that can be carried is the Apache stand-off missile which weighs approximately 1300 kg. The Apache will enter AdlA service in about five years time. The forward fuselage stations can carry guided or unguided bombs, the Mk 82 being typical. The starboard station, additionally, is configured to carry a targetting pod such as the ATLIS II. The Dash 5 variant can also carry the MICA missile on the forward station. The centreline station usually carries a 1300 litre fuel tank. It can also carry guided and unguided bombs. Dassault offer a multi point pylon that can carry four 250 pound bombs. Additionally a twin pylon is offered that allows carriage of two Mk 82 or two Mk 83 bombs with guidance kits. The rear fuselage pylons can carry guided or unguided bombs. The Dash 5 can also utilise these two stations to carry the MICA missile
