Well, at least the canopies are of similar type.

If they were to duel in a gunfight, the Cricket would easily turn into the Mirage every time. Mirage would overshoot all the time. Useless comparison, great picture.

Finally a picture where it can be clearly seen how the MC-15 is a Mirage 2000 ripoff. One simply can't tell the two apart.

A classic in the sense of a contretemps (a good french word too!)
btw: The refeulling probe is a fixture on any Mirage 2000 A/C equipped for air-to-air refeullin
