The Dassault Mirage IV was a twin-engine French supersonic bomber. It first flew in June 1959. It could carry a nuclear bomb AN-22 or a nuclear missile ASMP. It was in active service from 1964 to 2009. From 1990, it was used like a reconnaissance aircraft, after the Armée de l'Air bought Mirage 2000N. Dassault Mirage IV was not sold at export.

An example is from 2000 on exhibit at the Musée de l'Air et de l'Espace, the French aviation and space museum, in Paris–Le Bourget Airport.
