ECM: 0% -> 10%
Explanation: Mirage III had an RWR, so at least 10% ECM is warranted.
Loadout: 2xAS-37 -> 1xAS-37, 2xR.550 Magic I
ECM: 30% -> 40%
Turn: 500 -> 425
Explanation: The Martel missile was simply too big to be placed anywhere except the centerline. However, this does free up the interwing pylons for countermeasure pods, so the ECM could be bumped up to 40%.
Model: Mirage F1C - Jaguar A
Name: Jaguar A ATLIS
Year: 1983 -> 1980
Loadout: 2xR.550 Magic II, 2xSuper 530F -> 2xBGL-400
Fuel: 4000L -> 3000L
Loiter: 120s -> 90s
Turn: 400 -> 425
Explanation: The F1C-200 is quite pointless. The Magic II is from 1986, but moving the aircraft up to there makes doesn't help the deck much. At its current location, it's completely redundant with the regular F1C. This change brings LGBs to the Eurocorp on the platform that usually carried them (bombs on the inboard pylons, ATLIS on the centerline). The outboard pylons are left open for countermeasure pods.

May I suggest a more realistic alternative to what you're proposing, which would even prevent model swapping.
First, in the 70s the Mirage IIIC was no longer a frontline aircraft, but the Mirage IIIE still was. The Mirage IIIE was a Mirage with much better avionics allowing all weather navigation (E stands for Électronique), optimised for attack and with increased fuel capacity (longer airframe). One of its primary mission was SEAD with the Martel missile.http://www.escadrilles.org/wp-content/u ... 8_3-JD.jpghttp://4.bp.blogspot.com/-LVwkr5pYcyc/T ... +624+2.jpg
So it could have 1 Martel missile, and 40%ECM (would carry ECM pods), very much like the Jaguar loadout you're proposing. The Martel missile could see its accuracy improved to compensate the only missile though.
The Napalm loadout of the Vanilla Mirage IIIC would be given to the Mirage 5.
Then, The Mirage F1-CT would be renamed Mirage F1-CR and would keep its current loadout, but with only 30% ECM.
The Mirage F1-200 would be renamed Mirage F1 CT, with the same stats as the vanilla CT, and would get a loadout of 8*400kg bombs and 2 AAMs : 3 AUF1 adapters with two bomb each under centerline, inner underwings, and 1 more bombs on outer pylons of each wing. No fuel tanks ofc.
Lastly, the Jaguar should receive 2*1000kg sinc eit could carry two of those, 2*400kg would be worthless. Furthermore, the Jaguar was a primary user of the 1000kg version as shown in the pictures below.
Also, the Rafale autonomy should be increased to the level of the Typhoon's one. And it should have 6 Mica EM and 4 Mica IR and not 6 IR and 4 EM.
This would give France and EC an LGB bomber as well as good bomber at the expense of worst SEAD capabilities without the need of a new model or model swap.
Also, I didn't see any changes concerning the French missiles.
The Magic II should be 60% acc and 5HE, base Magic could probably get an accuracy boost as well and 5HE.
The Super 530 family should have 6HE.
