The first major upgrade for the Mirage 2000C was cockpit displays and upgraded computers so the pilot could use targeting pods for various guided air-to-ground weapons. The radar also saw an upgrade making it possible to use MICA missiles. Mirage 2000-5F c/n 208 code 44, F-UGEE serial 2-EQ was constructed in 1988 as a C variant and was converted to a 2000-5F in 2002. In 2013 the aircraft was sent to the Groupe de Chasse 1/2 Cigognes SPA103 Cigogne de Fonck.

The Dassault Mirage 2000-5 is the second generation of the Mirage 2000. The French Armée de l’ Air was replacing the older version of the Mirage 2000 and the manufacturer had hoped to sell France the newer version but they had already committed to the Rafale. Dassault needed a sale to the ADA to help promote export sales so as a stopgap measure until the Rafale was delivered the ADA upgraded 37 of the early Mirage 2000s to Dash 5 standards. The Dash 5 had new RDY radar, a new APSI (Advanced Pilot-System Interface) cockpit, MICA missiles and the ICMS Mk 2 (integrated countermeasures system). The Dash 5 is the first production fighter aircraft ever to be equipped with LCD displays. France, Greece, India, Qatar and Taiwan are equipped with the Dash 5 version of the Mirage 2000.
