This forum is clearly named Cheetah C/D but I am seeing no Cheetah C's

Hint hint Kremlin...

The D's are amazing though!

They are all generally referred to as Cheetah D's ... however within SAAF circles they were more strictly referred to as B, D, and D2, based on the original Mirage III airframe used in the conversion.

Cheetah B = 5 x ex-Israeli Nesher B (was in essence a Mirage 5B, so accordingly named Nesher-B)
Cheetah D = 3 x Mirage III DZ
Cheetah D2 = 8 x Mirage IIID2Z



ok, so i got a thing for numbers...

does anyone have a complete list of all cheetahs build, with serial numbers, and the airframes and serial numbers of the aircraft that were used to build them from?

and umm... maybe a pic of the B?
