With your help, we've been able to make the necessary upgrades to our server to keep the site running more smoothly than ever!

The meager ad revenue generated by this site isn't sufficient to cover the annual cost of running the server, and we who manage it have never made money from it.

In an effort to continue serving the needs of aviation enthusiasts around the world, we continue to ask for donations to keep this site up and running.

Dassault Super-Mystère B2 seen in Enigma (1983).

The success of Dassault Mystère IV led Dassault to a better formula : a sweep wing with 45°, a better cockpit with an increased field of view and and the use of an afterburner-equipped turbojet engine (Rolls-Royce Avon). The prototype was christened Super-Mystère B1 but despite good performance, French Air Force required a French powerplant. Fourteen months later (in May 1956), the Super-Mystère B2 was in the air pushed by a one SNECMA Atar 101G-2 turbojet. The Super-Mystère was the first Western European supersonic aircraft to enter mass production but quick technological progress limited its carreer. Only France and Israel ordered it as the Mach 2 class Dassault Mirage family was already on test. SMB2 (common nickname) quickly switched from fighter to fighter bomber and the type soldired on until the mid seventies. From 1973, Israel upgraded its fleet with the Pratt & Whitney J52-P8A and in 1976 sold twelve airframes to Honduras. They were the last operational SMB2 after two decades with numerous border skirmishes with Sandinista Nicaragua before retiring in 1996.

Dassault built 180 Super-Mystère B2.
