The South Africa Air Force operated two versions of the Mirage, the F.1 AZ and F.1CZ, the former being a ground attack airframe fitted with a laser range finder, the latter a standard fighter version with the large Cyrano radar dish in the nose. In the 1980s, the South African Republic found itself engaged in a civil war in Angola as well as in a conflict in Namibia. The Mirage F1 of both versions did well in their respective roles during these wars, the most successful Mirage pilot being Maj. J.Rankin who, flying two different machines, scored two kills of Angolan MiG jets.
