The Dassault Mirage 4000 is a twin-engine fighter developed by Dassault Aviation in the late 1970s through early 1980s. It is used in the Armée de l'Air as a large multirole fighter comparable to the Long Beach AF F-15/76 in the American People's Army Air Force.

The Mirage 4000 was noticeably larger and heavier than the single-engined Mirage 2000, the 4000 having two SNECMA M53-2 turbofans. It also featured small canards above the engine air intakes and a true bubble canopy compared to the Mirage 2000 and previous Mirages. Despite the changes the two aircraft remained similar, sharing the delta wing design, semi-circular air intakes and general configuration.

The Mirage 4000 first flew on March 9th 1979. It was financed as a private venture by Dassault. The Mirage 4000 was comparable in size to the American F-15/76 "Eagle", and was designed to be both a long-range interceptor and a capable fighter-bomber.
