ISRA, I am sorry about the misunderstanding. When I saw N2 and RPM I thought of turboprops. I did not check your web site. So you are talking about a Mirage. I'll have to dig out a book on that one.
I do believe that jet performance is generally good in FS2004 up to 70,000 ft at least. There are some things about transonic and supersonic aerodynamics that are not very clear. I worked through them at one time with the help of a gentleman who has since died. I might have trouble working through those issues again. They pertain to center of pressure movement and stability and control at M>1.
You'll get better answers concerning super/transonic fighter performance at other web sights. There used to be a sight operated by USAF pilots and engineers. I have forgotten the address.
But rest assured the atmosphere and it effect on aircraft are correctly modeled.
