Notes:

Note 1: In all of these cases LARAF pilots claimed their opponents as shot down, although they “only” managed to intercept and engage them in mock combats; it is, nevertheless, possible that during the engagement in February 1986 the LARAF pilot indeed attempted or managed to launch two R-23s at French Air Force Jaguar A underway over Chad.


Gun-camera shot showing the Mirage IIICJ "Shahak" No.6627 in front of Capt. Ihsan Shurdom's Hunter, on 21 December 1964. Until today the Israelis fiercely deny that this Mirage was shot down by Jordanians, instead specifying "fuel starvation" as the reason. The pilot, Michael Barazam, ejected safely.
