Atandar plane was developed by order of NATO light attack fighter capable of taking off from unprepared or shortened runway. NATO commanders particularly insisted that the new aircraft was used powerplant produced by Bristol Orpheus (this condition was realized in the modification Atandar VI). But at an early stage of the work it became clear that the aircraft did not have enough power. Marcel Dassault company decided to risk money and improve aircraft equipped with its power plant Atar. And although the competition for a new car won the G-91 fighter firm Fiat Atandar IV plane with engine Atar drew attention Aeronaval - French naval aviation. It was launched in two versions: IV-M - Strike Fighter and IV-P - scout. Both versions were taken into service in 1962. IV-M, which had a collapsible rod for refueling, has become the main attack aircraft carriers Foch and Clemenceau.
