^better than mirage 2000 which was around 1800km iirc on internal fuel. Of course they don't point out to the ferry range load out in the above slides. But I'm assuming it is on internal fuel only. Note mk1a could have better range than mk1 if they manage to bring down it's weight as proposed. Ferr...
