Unit History


Escuadrón de Combate 2112 "Mirage"

Role: Fighter/Attack.

The unit became operational as Escuadrón Táctico 14 with Lockheed F-80C/T-33A in January 1957 as a unit of Grupo Aérea de Taura. When enough Lockheed F-80C were available the Lockheed T-33A Shooting Star formed at new squadron at BA Taura, Escuadrón Táctico 12. The unit was renumbered Escuadrón de Caza-Bombardeo 2112 in 1966. From 1975 till 1979 the squadron operated A-37B. The unit was reequipped in 1978 with the recently procured Mirage F-1JA. In late 2009 the squadron received six Dassault Mirage 50DV/50EV from Venezuela. The Dassault Mirage F-1JA/E were retired in 2.2011.
